GE claims to look at the world askew, turning it on its head in search of new perspectives that hopefully lead to new solutions. So, its latest commercial from BBDO, titled "Time Upon a Once," does the same.

Much of the spot—from the visuals to the narration—is upside down, backwards and generally topsy-turvy. This approach embodies the ad's claim that GE operates very much that way—innovating through creative thinking. And it makes for a pretty delightful and very rewatchable ad.
