Why Millions Of People Can’t Take Their Eyes Off This Woman

I hate being duped on YouTube, but this is one video I want to be a fake. It’s the story of a year in the life of a victim of domestic violence. The only words you see are at the end of the video, in Croatian: “Help me, I don’t know if I will make it until tomorrow.” More than two million people have watched it so far. So, whether there are real bruises and blood in the video or just bloody good makeup, the message is universal — domestic abuse is not OK.Update: The video campaign was created by the anti-domestic-violence organization, Sigurna kuća, which means Safe House in Croatian. Now we can focus on the message and not the makeup.
