Aging is a funny thing. We get smarter and wiser, but our bodies don't always work the way they used to. And at some point we're expected to acknowledge that our favorite things-running, lifting heavy weights, swimming in the open ocean-are too risky. Our bones are too brittle, and our loved ones are too worried.

That's the basic premise of this moving video:A fictitious marathoner struggles to come to terms with how his body and mind are deteriorating while living in a retirement home. Eugene Merher, a German film student, created the 100-second mock advertisement for class, but after watching, we'd be surprised if we don't see this on TV soon.
