David Droga is behind a stunning new piece of creative from Facebook labelled ‘Never Lost’.
Carrying the tagline “we’re never lost if we can find each other”, the ad reminds us all that even in these tough times, there is joy to be found in our human connections.
The 90-second film was first unveiled by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg earlier this morning.
“We made a short film “Never Lost” to honour the solidarity and resilience of so many people coming together during this time. Thank you to everyone doing your part,” he said.

Facebook CMO Antonio Lucio shared the video on Twitter, thanking Droga and his New York City-based agency Droga5.
