Last month Chinese online internet security company, ‘360 Safeguard’ celebrated its 6 year anniversary. To commemorate this event the firm created a micro film called “The Protector of Love, The Security of the Heart” that depicts the story of a father and son using the internet whilst subtlely weaving 360 Safeguard’s internet protection functions into the plot. Here is the film with English translations underneath courtesy of Fauna:
I often heard my grandmother say
that my father was a busy body [someone who is always finding something to do, minding other people’s business] even when he was young.
And even now at his age,
he’s still the same….
Old Zhao, what are you doing? Patching/fixing the Earth/planet?
Heh, if there’s something that ought to be done, then it should be done.
Ha, you’ve definitely done quite a lot of good things for this neighborhood.
After retiring, my father was like a lot of other people
and started learning how to play the stock market
Every morning he would go watch the stock market with some stock friends [friends who also play the stock market]
Once there, it would be for the entire day
There’s yet another new stock/company going public.
First thing tomorrow morning let’s go to the stock hall [places where people can go to watch the stock market and conduct transactions]
Dad, we have internet at home.
You can play the stock market at home. There’s more information, and its more convenient.
Don’t blindly give suggestions.
For us old people, think how hard it is to learn the computer.
That’s easy, it’s easy once you learn.
If she can learn, then the sun will rise from the west!
I say, son, how about this
Tonight, we’ll hold class, and you can teach me
Okay, Dad, we’ll learn tonight.
Ai ya, forget it, forget it.
I can’t catch up with the times…
I never imagined, that my dad who would never admit defeat
would this time so easily give up.
[OLD ZHAO gets up in the middle of the night and continues learning the computer by himself, types “gupiao” (stocks) into Baidu]
Turns out, my father didn’t actually give up
so I too will not give up
[SON brings his laptop, teaches his father how to download and install Qihoo 360 Safeguard antivirus software “for free”]
Hey, haha, I’m in!
Hey Old Zhao, I hear you’re playing the stock market at home now, quite impressive you are now!
If you guys want to learn, come over to my place and I’ll teach you guys
Is it hard?
Hai you, if I can learn how, how can you guys not learn how?
My father says to share is also a kind of happiness/enjoyment.
I only used a few nights to teach my father how to use the computer.

But my father used an entire lifetime to teach me how to walk, how to be a person…
