When the motor stops

When the motor stops

Doner, a Detroit-based ad agency, released a powerful coronavirus video message. It pays homage to Detroit, one of the hardest hit cities by the COVID-19 virus, and serves as a PSA asking residents to stay inside so that healthcare workers can take care of the sick. It features black-and-white footage of the city with its empty streets, silent theaters and lonely shops. And there is not a person in sight.

“It feels unnatural to not be in motion. For the city built on four wheels to stand still. But these vacant streets, empty stadiums, are not signs of our retreat, but of our resolve. This is not us sitting out the fight. This is us winning it. Our fist doesn’t need to move to strike.

If he were alive today, even Henry himself would have put it in park. So take this isolation as a sign of our togetherness as we take care of ourselves and the ones close. Because although it’s time for America’s motors to stop, we’re coming back with all eight cylinders.

Because here, we don’t stop in the name of fear. Here we stop in the name of love.

Stay safe Detroit.”
