In other words: what does the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacré Coeur and the Notre-Dame Cathedral have in common? That's what the Centre Pompidou set out to find out. Although Parisians come in their thousands to visit or revisit the Centre, which is home to one of the largest modern and contemporary art collections in the world, international tourists seem mostly unaware of this gem.

The result: A video that shows just how much educators mean to the students they teach every day. It was a natural fit — since the GM Educator Discount already acts as a “thank you” for all of their hard work and dedication, it made sense to continue that gratitude with a campaign that was both sincere and heartfelt. The team found five schools with grades ranging from first through twelfth and interviewed teachers under the guise of “creating a video about the teacher community.” Then, they secretly interviewed their students and asked them why they loved their teachers and what impact they made on them. Finally, the teachers were surprised on-camera with visits from their students and two words they seldom hear, “thank you.” There were tears. There were hugs. There was gratitude. And most importantly, it was genuine.
