In a fast-paced stream of events through alleys and with a police car—all underscored by the Black Eyed Peas song, “Where is the Love,” we watch the drama unfold and wonder if the young man is stealing or returning the purse—until the last triumphant moment.
(Stand Alone Lyrics)
What’s wrong with the world, mama?
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas.
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama.
Only attracted to things that’ll bring the trauma.
Yeah. Madness is what you demonstrate,
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates.
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight.
Take control of your mind and meditate.
Let your soul gravitate to the love ya’ll, ya’ll.
People killin’, people dying.
Children hurt and hear them cryin’?
Can you practice what you preach?
Would you turn the other cheek?
Boy: You forgot your purse.
Woman: Oh. You don’t know how worried I was. Thank you! Thank you very much!
Police Officer: Hey!
Voiceover: Honesty. Pass it on.
Police Officer: Nice move kid. Donut?
Voiceover: A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.
(Lyrics Underneath Above Dialogue)
Father, Father, Father help us,
Send us some guidance from above.
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’,
Where is the love?
The love, the love.
Where is the love?
I really love the values that you portray.

I think this was a good inspirational commercial that tells us more than just about Honesty. It also tells us that people who look scary aren't always who you think they are. I liked this commercial. I rate it 5 star. I'm doing a project on honesty and this really helped. Thanks!

Levy M.Lindo 6 months ago from Tarlac city, Philippines
Beautiful commercial, really made it by using that song. Just very unbelievable he would run to where she was going. Might have been more believable if he gave it to the police. Just an opinion, was an amazing commercial though. The donut part was hilarious.

This morning I used this Honesty Commercial during the Children's Moments in our church worship service.to illustrate my point about being honest. Watching the faces of multiage grouping of children was so rewarding. They got the message. And because the commerical was so well done, the door was opened for further discussions and learning opportunities beyond honesty. Thank you for this positive message in this often negative driven world. This is truly a modern day Parable.

Just saw this commercial on my tv minutes ago. I thought it was a great commercial about honesty and not only that but judging a book by its cover. You have a boy who is dressed all in black and most people think, oh he's going to take the purse because hes a troubled kid. NOT THE CASE! I really enjoyed this commercial.

abby about 1 year ago from MD
I just saw this commercial for the first time, literally moments ago. I've studied story telling in all its forms most of my life and this is as good as it gets. You did in seconds what some movies can't do in hours. You developed the characters to the extent that I want to know about what happened before and after. Not just for the Kid but the Cop and the Woman too. You built true suspense. Not just will the Kid do the right thing, but with the early drive by introduction of the Cop, at the end if he had seen enough, or would he jump to conclusions? Very well written story. But it's the donut, that makes it art. Definitely worthy of a CLEO or any other award. This is me, www.facebook.com/ptbartmanhs

Clarissa Flores about 1 year ago from Pecos TX
This is one of my favorite ads. I knew the first time I saw it that boy was going to do the right thing. It helps me have faith in mankind, there are more good people than bad. It's just that we always hear about the bad, not the good. Just yesterday, I saw a young man chase down a lady in the parking lot at Walmart, she had a very full cart and 3 kids in tow, and was making her way back to her car. A large bottle of laundry detergent had fallen off of her cart, and she didn't notice. This young man grabbed it and ran after her and gave it to her. He had piercings, tattoos, the whole lot. As he turned towards me after giving it back, I told him, "Your mama raised you right!" He just shrugged, and said, "no big deal".
Bonnie about 1 year ago from East Troy, W

The boy is epic. I would've done the same thing. I want to have a hair like him!!!!
Dastine over 1 year ago from Woodbridge, VA
I just adore this commercial! The first time I saw it, I got all excited because the boy in it is fiine. But after I watched it, I got even more emotional because it's just so true and powerful. So, needless to say I had to glance away from the other people watching TV with me after the commercial ended, haha!
This is a great commercial, and wish there were more like these out there<3

Becca over 1 year ago from USA
This message is for Zariah who replied earlier and said she has really bad narcolepsy. I realize that this forum is supposed to be about the commercial but I wanted to reach out to you and tell you about someone who had a major impact on my life. My beloved Aunt Charlotte also had narcolepsy for the majority of her life. Although she wasn't diagnosed until she was at least in her 20's, if not later. What I wanted to tell you is that in spite of Aunt Charlotte's illness, Aunt Charlotte achieved more and impacted more lives than many completely healthy individuals. Aunt Charlotte attended fashion design school. She was a beauty and could've been a model back in the day. She was an accomplished oil painter, Avon lady, visited the homebound at her church, was a room mom at her child's school. I could keep going. I realize that not all cases of narcolepsy are the same. My beloved aunt lived til the age of 82. Let me tell you, she was one hip and happening human being. One couldn't help but to feel better about oneself when one was in her company. Your illness doesn't have to define you. I know I am not you and not in your shoes, but one never knows whose life we may leave a mark upon. I for one was postively influenced by a creative, warm and caring woman who just happened to have narcolepsy. May peace be upon you. Sorry for the long comment.

Whitney over 1 year ago from Virginia
I love this commercial because it shows us emo kids are not how people stereotype us trouble-makers. I hardly watch tv anymore or hang out with my friends because I always get bullied because I have the worst case of narcolepsy the doctor said he'd seen in 15 years. I have to live my whole life with it and I'm only 13 years old
ZARIAH over 1 year ago from Amory Mississippi
What a cool commercial. Delivers a great message with an awesome song. Need more of these commercials on the airwaves and maybe our country won't be as bad with crime and all. This commercial needs to be played more often.
Jason over 1 year ago from Indiana
The Lady in this commercial is my best friend. I was missing her dearly one day after she moved out of state. I heard her voice suddenly on the TV and HAD to call her. She didn't even know this was being replayed. How inspirational! I LOVE this commercial. Good images and great song.

Emily over 2 years ago from D
I just want to say that my leadership class at my school watches at least 1 of these vids everyday in class...then our awsome teacher Mrs.S asks us to write down the message that we think is what the video is really saying but more of an expanded message like this one:"If you do something kind or honest for somebody you might not always get rewarded physically but you will almost always get rewarded emotionally because if you r kind 2 someine else it makes them and you happy"
Kaylie A over 2 years ago from Baker city,Or
Saw this commercial yesterday. It's good to know so many others love it too.
Nick over 2 years ago from Phoenix
I like how all their commercials are about what you can do better, not what others have to do better. For example, this one doesn't say "don't stereotype" for everybody. It says you specifically be honest.

Ellen over 2 years ago from Texas
We really liked the commercial! We thought that he looked kind of creepy and he was going to take the purse. The police thought maybe he was stealing too. But actually, he really was a good guy. The boy went running through alleys and around blocks to get it back to her. The lady, the police and I all learned a lesson!
chickiechicks over 2 years ago from New York
I Live in Canada and I still love this commercial. In a world where most commercials are just to sell things its nice to see ones like this that are trying to help the world. It brightens my day every time I see it. I hope they keep up the good work.
Rose over 2 years ago from Canada
It says a lot when I don't care for the messages most rap songs seem to portray....the choice of song for this commercial opened my ears to give them another chance. This message means so much to me, I ask EVERYONE if they have seen it!!!!
Keep up the good work!
akdaffodil over 2 years ago from alaska
This is my favorite of all of your fantastic ads. We should all know not to judge based on appearance and the second message: that we should laud others when we see them do the right thing.
Linda over 2 years ago from Louisville, KY
The best commercial on TV :)
Patty over 2 years ago from Arizona
Loved this! Everyone always asumes teenagers do the wrong thing!! And the kid looks like Eli from Degrassi!
Jamie over 2 years ago from Alabama
Love this commercial! My husband and I used to work with a youth group in which some of the kids looked like the kid in this commercial. Which to some people means they "looked like they would steal the purse". However, like the kid on this commercial, I feel that in their heart they would know what is right and return the purse. Always remember that it is what's on the *inside* that counts.
Katie over 2 years ago from North Carolina
I saw this commercial for the first time almost a year ago, and it's stuck with me ever since. I tend to wear a lot of black-- not because I'm depressed but because that's what I like. I've been called Emo and other labels, all of which sound negative. Hopefully, this commercial will make people think twice about stereotyping. Thanks.

kyle over 2 years ago from philippines
It's a great commercial! It has all it needs to get its message out there...try to teach our kids right, and have a little more faith in them to do the right thing. Don't pre-judge them. Give them credit for a job well done. It's not always easy for them in this world we, as adults, have set up for them.
Liz over 2 years ago from Minnesota
This is a great message! I know a lot of kids who would've stolen the purse. They should watch this video, then maybe they could learn
Will Hirsch over 2 years ago from Chandler Arizona
When I saw this commercial I was blown away... The young boy looks just like my brother that passed away 10 days before his 20th birthday and that was some thing he would have done! He was always thinking of others. Thank you for honoring his spirit and others like him!
Benjamin Price over 2 years ago from Toronto

Micaela M almost 3 years ago from GA
They are all there: the punk, the big black lady, the cops....and we KNOW how they will act.....but the message of this little film is that presumptions like this can lead one astray.
The Lady is gracious and grateful.
The Cops don't jump to conclusions.
The Kid is Mr. Good Deed.
I love the bit where the cops recognize the kids action by inviting him into their club..."have a donut." Love it.
Everytime this PSA comes on, I stop and watch it.

Jennifer H. almost 3 years ago from Memphis,Tn
Out of all the Pass it On commercials this one is my favorite, not only is the boy SUPER cute but it shows the world that they shouldn't think of teenagers or people who wear all the back clothes and have chains hanging on their belt loops as bad people. Everyone passes judgment because of what people look like when really we have to look at what is in the inside of a person. Plus, the song. I've loved this song for a long time and I've always had an image in my head that we should play this song on every TV and radio in the world to tell people that we need the stop the way we live. It may not be showing all over the world just yet, but it's a great way to start! :)
Selena almost 3 years ago from Michigan

Ashley almost 3 years ago from northfreedom,WI
This commercial is awesome! I <3 the kid who gave that purse back, he's really cute! :) There should definitely be more commercials like this.

Why don't we see more in program breaks like this?
It would help our wounded world.
Orlando almost 3 years ago from Houston
This commercial is awesome. Though, I doubt the kid is really as he is portrayed in the commercial (meaning the dark clothes ect...) A lot of people these days consider people like me (who wears black chains and has lots of facial piercings) bad people. They stray away when we pass by, they give us looks of utter disgust it's so annoying that they judge a book by its cover! I have a very kind heart despite my looks.
Samsam almost 3 years ago from VA
This is such a powerful commercial. It's great to finally a teenager on TV doing something GOOD. People always just assume that we're bad news...I hope this helps change that. :)

This is one of my favorite video commercials. This will inspire young people to be honest in every way in life.
Kevin H almost 3 years ago from Washington DC
I love this commercial. Especially the "Nice move kid. Doughnut?"
Lee almost 3 years ago from Oregon
I saw this commercial, and I fell in love with it. This is so touching! This is something the world needs to see. Thank you for putting this on TV.
Kayla almost 3 years ago from Florida
Great message! Cute and adorable guy! anybody know who he is? Hehe. ;)
Meghan about 3 years ago from California
I absolutely love this commercial. People look at me funny when I'm in school because I prefer to dress from head to toe in black often, even when its "hot" out. Haha, then they judge me because of what they see on the outside. I love this because it shows people that you honestly can't judge a book by its cover. :3
Besides, who doesn't love a commercial with a totally cute and adorable guy? Haha. Anybody know who the actor is?
Meghan about 3 years ago from Cali ;)
I LOVE THIS COMMERCIAL...I learned that I shouldn't judge people because of the way they dress and now I have some new friends that I never thought I would have. It's amazing what you can get from a commercial...and parents tell you not to watch TV. LOL
Rockkell about 3 years ago from Virgina
This is an honest person who does not take what he didn't own. That is honesty.
Julius about 3 years ago from Philipines
LoL He's Hott:))♥
Josee D about 3 years ago from Cedar Rapids IA
This video is one of the most astounding videos I have ever seen, beleive me. It shows not only honesty, but not to assume the worst about people who dress differently and are unique because they just might suprise you. I enjoyed the video and the message(s) that it gave. Furthermore, the dude is mad gorgeous :)
Rama Belle about 3 years ago from Edgewater, New Jersey
That boy is super cute, not to mention a good person ( based off of what I have seen). I just wish I knew him! <3

Love the commercial I stop what I'm doing just to watch it.
San28 about 3 years ago from Alabama
I saw this on t.v. and looked it up online. I always liked the song ever since I saw a gal do it with ASL American Sign Language. A very good and powerful commercial. The humor at the end with the doughnut was cute.
Pam about 3 years ago from Virginia
I'm 13 and I LOVE this commercial. Especially because I know tons of guys who look just like this kid. They're all great guys, but everyone just assumes because of the way they dress or the music they listen to, they're automatically bad people. But this kid totally changes that opinion for tons of people. And he's pretty cute too...
OhI'mJustAGirlInTheWorld about 3 years ago from my laptop ;)
I am so happy that they put an EMO kid in this video, my son and all his friends are EMO and they are a great bunch of kids and all very nice and respectful. People tend to judge them harshly because of their style, which is a shame, if they only knew them as the people they are things would be so much better. This was a great video-the kid is very handsome-I for one love the style even if I am too old to be EMO. The other posts from the girls are pretty fun to read, turns out lots of girls think EMO boys are hot, thanks for making this video the way that you did, I think this will really reach out to the EMO kids.

I am working on a book called Scars starring an emo kid and when they make it into a movie I want HIM starring in it as Ryan Lautner a 17 year old drug/alcohol addict who gets into a series of trouble with a lot of girls. . .

Bre about 3 years ago from Columbia
I wish the world was like this, it would make the world a much better place to live. I had that opportunity the other day to return a drivers license and I'm so glad I returned it, it made me feel good inside, and it helped the person a lot. We should all help each other out, we're all humans!

I really enjoy all of the values commercials, but this is definitely one of my favorites. I always stop to watch it, when I hear it come on TV. Thanks so much to those involved for such a wonderful job.
We really do teach by example and you never know when someone's watching you from afar, so let your actions be good and speak for themselves.
Christa about 3 years ago from Pennsylvania
I love this commercial so much! If only people were actually like this in real life. Not to mention this kid is adorable! I watch this commercial every day, and it just keeps getting better! The guy reminds me of Munro Chambers character on Degrassi too. But seriously I wish I met a guy that was this nice in real life.
Alexa about 3 years ago from New Jersey
I just watched this commercial on TV and kinda "fell in love" with it :D
This just became my favorite commercial!

Edward about 3 years ago from Brooklyn New York
An amazing commercial with a brilliant message.
Leslie about 3 years ago from Newmarket, On, Canada
I just love this commercial. The music, the young boy, the cops, everything. As someone else said, the woman should at the least have given the kid a hug. Cop and donuts... nice touch. This commercial truly brings a small lump to my throat. When I hear the music come on, I stop whatever I'm doing so I can watch it.
Gabi V. about 3 years ago from Mississauga, Ont.
I love this commercial sooo much ! I watch it almost everyday and the boy is awesomely HOT ! He looks a little bit like Nick Jonas but way cuter!
Karina about 3 years ago from Connecticut
Hi, I love this commercial! It teaches an important lesson about honesty and the boy is way hot! Keep making commercials like this!

Marco over 3 years ago from Brazil
I love this commercial! And I also love the song that plays. Finally figured out what song it was! And, yes, like many other comments on this page, who is the boy? I just want to know. But anyway, absolutely love this commercial, as well as the others. Keep it up! I love them!
Sara over 3 years ago from North Carolina
It was very touching and it shows that no matter who you are, people can be trusted.
Daylee over 3 years ago from TRA
I'm so thankful that you show positive actions like this. I am a former corrections officer and my trust in people has definitely diminished. This helps rebuild my trust in the human race.
Ali C over 3 years ago from Spokane, WA
I really like the message of this commercial,who is the cute kid? I try to catch this whenever it comes on.
Barbara S. over 3 years ago from North Vernon, IN
I love this video so much! It is my favorite commercial. I video taped it and watch it every day, all day long. Plus the boy is super cute and it teaches me to make the right choices. Please...... keep it up and keep making more videos like this!
Maddie over 3 years ago from West Virginia
I love it! There was no reason to assume that he was a bad person because of his attire and that was very honest and nice to do that because somebody could have stolen that lady's purse but he did the honest thing.
Envy over 3 years ago from Texas
GREAT video!! Wonderful message about honesty, kindness, not judging a book by its cover, making the extra effort for a stranger and helping to make our community a better place to live. This is what our volunteer mentors "Bigs" instill in our kids "Littles"
Sabrina over 3 years ago from Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC
I hope one day I forget my purse and a cute boy brings it back to me and doesn't steal it!
Karina over 3 years ago from NY
Very Good!!! I Like The Way You Guys Used A Rocker Because Many People Consider Us Rockers As The Rebels, the Numskulls And This Lets People Know That We're Honest And Polite Just Like Everybody Else:) I Loved The Video A lot It's One Of The Best Pass It On Videos.. In My Opinion.
Bianca over 3 years ago from California
This is the best video in the world people should be watching this more often. This is my favorite song and I love it. That boy is cute too!
Erica C over 3 years ago from Paterson NJ

I really like this video! It makes you feel that there is hope for this world to see a honest young man doing the right thing. This young man may dress and look different but he shows great integrity. Good for you.
Sara keith over 3 years ago from Morristown N.J
These 'Life Lessons' are so eloquently and simply illustrated that they leave a lasting impact on the heart and mind. This new commercial is as wonderful as all the other ones your organization has produced. Thank you for providing such positive messages for all to see and hopefully to emulate. I also love receiving the "Quote of the Day" to inspire and uplift me every morning!

Best tv spot ever! Love it! :)
Wesley S over 3 years ago from Fort Smith
This is what the virtuesproject.com teaches.
HOwever the woman and the police would have acknowledged the young man by saying, "I see your honesty and helpfulness by returning the purse."
They would acknowledge the virtues they saw in the young man.
gillian Krantz over 3 years ago from vancouver British Columbia Canada
Love it! And I like the fact you are showing blacks and whites getting along, as well as what seems to be a "punk" kid doing something value oriented. Well done.
Amy S. over 3 years ago from New York, NY
Will show this to my boys! Thanks!
Peter Ong over 3 years ago from Singapore

Josafa C over 3 years ago from Brazil
A wonderful and inspiring commercial. It shows that we all have a choice in everything we encounter. You can choose to do the right thing or the wrong thing. Also it shows that we should not judge people by their appearances.
Maryeileen, L over 3 years ago from Wilkes Barre PA
You keep telling a kid he is bad and chances are he might end up that way.
You show the good in him and he will strive to prove you right.
Someone once told me when I was 20 years old instead of looking for the bad in other people look for the good in yourself. you will find life will be a lot easier. I have tried to live my life by those words.I believe every kid in school should view this video.What an inspiration that would be.
Larry K over 3 years ago from Plattsmouth, Ne

I love this commercial so much. I also like the song. I would also like to know who sings it. I would love to hear the whole thing. The boy that is in the commercial reminds me of the kids that I see at school everyday.
Sharon H over 3 years ago from Mineral, Va
This is a beautiful Idea that shows the good in all of us.
I was wondering, is the music and lyrics part of a song...if so where can I find it.
Andrew B over 3 years ago from DC
Wow,This video is so awesome,it warmed my heart to see someone do that for an elder,and especially teen.That was true thoughtfulness,and integrity on his part.I think more people and teens around the world need to take a stand and do what this kid did,because we need more of this in this day and age
sarah R over 3 years ago from temecula ca
I saw the first half of this commercial, and searched for days to find it. I wanted to see the ending and what it was marketing. I showed it to my school at an assembly and they all loved it too.
James B. over 3 years ago from Detroit
Out of all the commercials this one is my favorite. I wish everyone was like this. And I agree with everyone when I ask who is that?

Star E. over 3 years ago from Denver,Colorado

Who is the hot guy?!?!? I really wanna friend him on Facebook. That commercial was really moving!!!!!!!
Brittany, F over 3 years ago from Loserville, TX
The guy is really hot. This commercial almost brought me to tears. I keep showing it to people. I love the honesty and stereotyping message, since I know as a teenager, young people do get stereotyped. Thank you
Hannah S over 3 years ago from New York
The song is "Where Is The Love" by the Black Eyed Peas.

Josh S over 3 years ago from Jerseyville, IL

AnnaKarrin, M over 3 years ago from Winchester, KY

Love. Who sings that song in the background?
Andrew R over 3 years ago from California, MD

Kaila C. over 3 years ago from Lakewood, OH

Micaela S. over 3 years ago from Sanford, Florida
I think this commercial is exceptional and I was really moved by the act of kindness, an act no one should hesitate at performing. I'm left wondering who portrays this exceptional young man, I wonder if he's credited in any more well developed roles. Just a thought.
Nickie V over 3 years ago from La Feria, Texas
I even love the end when he gets a donut from the police....nice touch.
