run for your life!


This video by rock band Foo Fighters hits the nail on the head.

It captures in words, music, lyrics, intensity, and visuals what I imagine underlies the “challenging behaviours” of many people who live with dementia in LTCFs, the conditions of many of which would make anyone want to escape.

I wonder if the idea was perhaps sparked by this creative video advertisement called Breaking Free developed on spec for and ultimately rejected by running shoe makers (it subsequently went viral).

I love the lyrics in particular. Oh, and of course the escapees…
