  1. I don’t understand , so the mother is having a heart attack and her son
    looked up to the internet , show her and just leave , what is she just I
    don’t know pass out …

  2. I would never watch an educational video about heart attacks but this one
    popped up after i watched an elizabeth banks trailer so i just kept it on,
    thinking it was another trailer. I now know and will remember the signs of
    a heart attack. This was surprisingly effective. And now I love elizabeth
    banks more 🙂 I’m 34, smoke, and am on the pill so i should seriously know
    this stuff.

    1. +AleshaLikesCake I know you ear this way too often, but please try to
      rethink that smoking thing. I absolutely understand the satisfaction a cig
      can provide, but it’s nothing compared with surviving a heart attack and
      the open heart surgery that followed. Also, the next time you go to your
      doctor, ask them to check for a heart murmur. It’s always a good idea to
      keep tabs on how the old engine is holding up.

  3. She risked her life to clean the house for her husband and kids like a
    proper woman. I hope one day there are more women like her to take the
    initiative!

  4. This is a fantastic video. Many people don’t get as much from reading text
    about what she acted out. Many people are visual and I’m one of those. I
    have shared this on Facebook after seeing it shared there. I’d guess many
    women’s and perhaps men’s lives have been saved by watching this video!

  5. First thing first – I love Elizabeth Banks! Next to say – Oscar performance
    in a staggering piece! All said :)

  6. have shared this video so much, I think I’ve lost count. My heart attack
    was just like this, and I thought it was “The worst case of bronchitis.
    EVER.” Two days later I was in the O.R., filleted like a fish and getting
    a new aortic valve. Turns out my old, original aortic valve was so badly
    calcified, it was nearly sealed shut. Oops.

  7. If you think this is funny think again. If you’ve lost someone to a heart
    attack, making it into a joke, like your housekeeping is more important, is
    ludicrous, insensitive, revolting, offensive, and making light of one of
    the world’s top killers. Some things are not funny. Wise up!

    1. +cmherbs She’s not making fun of people who have died from heart disease
      and trying to belittle it. I have serious heart failure and almost died of
      from a heart attack last month. I wouldn’t have gone to the hospital or
      known that I was having a heart attack if I didn’t watch this video. It’s
      meant to create awareness. She’s not saying that housekeeping is more
      important. She’s showing how so many women will continue about their day,
      doing ordinary things without realizing they are having a heart attack. She
      was demonstrating the symptoms many women experience and trying to show
      that it was something that should be taken seriously because she could have
      died if her son hadn’t stopped her from doing trivial things (that seemed
      important to her at the time) and being checked out. I’m sorry that this
      offended you, but that definitely was not her intention. I have loved ones
      who have died from heart disease as well and it wasn’t a “joke.” This was
      meant to show how so many women don’t take their symptoms seriously enough.
      That’s all she was trying to convey. And because of this video, many women
      have learned to take these symptoms seriously and get checked out. This
      video has saved lives so trying and thinking of it that way may be more
      helpful. I think you may have misinterpreted what she was trying to convey
      through humor in this video, but I understand why you may be so offended by
      it.

    2. +cmherbs This is truly how MANY women are. I am a nurse at a busy heart
      center/coronary care unit and we have had women come in that have put off
      chest pain for MONTHS that finally come in when it is too late. Some have
      made it some have not. This video is SPOT on and in your face what happens.
      It is truly serving as a wake up call to those that DO NOT come in and
      worry about the housework and everything else that is going on that need to
      stop and say. “Ok, I have to listen to my body!” I have lost my father to a
      heart attack and my mother to cancer. This is how you reach people that
      don’t want to listen. There are ways of reaching people through different
      medias and forms and sometimes you need to go this avenue. I am truly sorry
      for your loss, but if someone watches this and says “I need to stop what I
      am doing I am being completely insane cleaning my house and go to the
      hospital” Isn’t it worth it? As a nurse it is to me.

    3. +cmherbs I had a patient once tell me she had to finish the load of laundry
      before her husband would “let her” go to the doctor even though she was
      pretty sure she was having a heart attack…she was

  8. Hard Work causes heart attacks.This is why we all need WELFARE! Your Job
    will kill you,,But being on Welfare doesn’t cause you get stress cause
    you’re not being told what to do by your supervisor or boss. You’re your
    own boss when you’re on welfare! Let the Government take care of you. Thats
    why we need Democrats! to take care of us hollywood is looking after us..
    Elizabeth Banks is my favorite actress and she’s a Democrat even she thinks
    its ok for some of us to collect Welfare,Food Stamps and free public
    housing.

  9. Today is the third anniversary of my heart attack. I was 37. It looked a
    lot like this video. I had been icing my right shoulder since Xmas for what
    I thought was a pulled muscle. I share this video pretty regularly.

  10. I appreciated this video – exactly what happened to me – ended up with a
    quadruple bypass….both parents died of a heart attack before the age of
    65 – this video reaches women who are trying to do and be all for their
    loved ones – and who forget to care for themselves. Thank you for the humor
    – because it makes you reevaluate – in a nonthreatening way – who is at
    risk…and women definitely are!! Thank you Elizabeth Banks!
