Brain Attack

How do you take public education about a serious medical emergency and turn it into a funny video? With health care professionals wearing neon leggings, goofy dancing, and a preamble depicting a doctor on the street trying to teach uninterested passersby the medical mechanics and warning signs of a stroke. Managing a perfect balance between funny and serious, this educational video teaches the FAST method of early stroke detection (Face, Arm, Speech, Time) in a quick and painless way. Laugh and learn! Another video in the new series Funny Fridays, taking a lighthearted look at all things to do with the brain and behaviour.
