A very nice dhamma-inspired advertisement

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but if so, here it is again!
A few weeks ago I met a woman in Perth who was part of the team behind this advertisement, and we talked about how it was based on the dhamma.
Many people at my work have commented on it, as being the best ad they've seen. Have a look.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

That's it. I am packing up with the cats and cactus and moving to the jungle with the natives...
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

We will be glad to have you!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
