The video above, which will thankfully only induce a mild sense of vertigo, was produced by
the public media folks at KQED and Stride Health, which is a health insurance startup based out of San Francisco.
Update: in an email sent to SFist at 5:53 PM Friday, KQED Forum Senior Editor Dan Zoll says "KQED was not involved in the production of the advertisement in any way, and the Forum audio was used without our permission. KQED sent a takedown notice to YouTube and a Cease and Desist letter/email to Stride Health today." SFist regrets the error.
