The "Who Are You?" commercials were a marketing point to advertise the GameBoy Advance SP to the general public. Most of them depict GBA SP's in certain situations and are completely devoid of any dialogue. There were 8 made in total and they spanned from 2003-2006.
Different colored GBA SP's are shown with each release.

Each student begins to run through the city and one jumps on a bus, signalling the siren.

A bus, which appears to be the one from earlier comes to a screeching halt and the same man with the white shirt can be seen richoeting from a wall and running after the students.
