Emotive Digital Ray-Ban Experience Lets You Sing the Sound of Sorry

Belgium agency Gents encourages Ray-Ban fans to undertake their own personal acts of courage

Emotive Digital Ray-Ban Experience Lets You Sing the Sound of Sorry

Ray-Ban invited 9 critics and bullies to see things from their victims’ perspective with the hope of achieving reconciliation. To do so, Ray-Ban went looking for real people and stories about regret with the hope of inciting the courage to forgive. Belgium-based interactive boutique agency Gents reunited two brothers, old schoolmates and a former couple and documented the emotional journey in a series of micro-documentaries.  

The musical catalyst of the campaign is Elton John’s iconic song “Sorry seems to be the hardest word”. Ray-Ban invited each critic into the recording studio and asked them if they had the courage to face the microphone, using the widely-known lyrics of Elton John’s song for their own redemption. 

The result can be experienced online at, an interactive experience where the sound of sorry comes to life. 

The globally-launched digital campaign will go live across social channels and encourage Ray-Ban fans to undertake their own personal acts of courage.
