You could ask your students to watch the clip and, as a class, identify as many examples of the 'meaning of life' as they can, eg family life, enjoyment and happiness. As individuals, students may enjoy choosing nine of the meanings as a diamond or pyramid chart whereby they rank the importance of each one. It may then be interesting for students to compare their charts and discuss the reasons as to why they're so different.
