Stork Visits

Online employment company continues the “Your Calling is Your Calling” campaign with “Stork”, the story of a stork which returns to visit a baby now an adult. A stork flies through hill country, deserts, stormy seas, snowy mountains (fighting off a pack of wolves), and thunderstorms to deliver a baby boy to his parents in suburbia. As the baby opens his mouth we’re transported to the future in which a grown man yawns at his desk. He’s clearly not inspired by his office job. The stork returns to his window and makes contact before lowering its head and flying off, perhaps in disappointment. The man looks out the window into the stormy night. “Are you reaching your potential?”
