Google's Monotune Ad Campaign

An ad campaign for Google's Android has a young musician playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata 3rd movement. As his hands fly over the keys, a statement is projected, "A piano has 88 keys" then, "Each one is different." After a few moments, we see "But what if they were all the same?" With that the pianist switches to an identical piano and continues to play. However regardless of what key he strikes, every note on the reengineered piano is the same—a middle C. He alternates between the two pianos until the final frame where we read "Be together, not the same."

The message of the New Testament is that each person is different; each is given a "note" to play in the grand song of building the church.
