Peer Pressure can be used as a positive force, as seen in this scenario! Take a look at one of our newest TV spots and watch as a group of teens influence their friend to ‘do the right thing’ while hanging out at a music store.
Just do it quick, no one’s watching.
You have to if you want to hang with us.
The other one too?
Do the right thing. Pass it on. A message from the Foundation for a Better Life.
I showed this to my brother and now he knows to do right choice

My wife and I are watching these videos and are enjoying the messages they send out. This one really is relevant to today as it was years back about peer pressure. Keep up the great work, and God bless you.

These commercials have such a magnificent impact. I often see the "The Race" but I did not know until now that there were so many fantastic, moving and morally educational commercials. I see so much of the negativity and it feels absolutely wonderful to experience a magic that can make me laugh or cry in just 60 seconds....Thank you.

I love the idea, but of course it's the goth kid who stole something in the first place. I find that somewhat stereotypical.

I managed that store for years. Hilarious.
Davey 9 months ago from UT
This commercial kept me watching it until the end. I'm inspired. It definitely built in an impressive story within 60 seconds. If this commercial was 30 seconds, it would have felt rushed and abrupt. I felt like I was there.

Clever! Thanks for these videos... It's nice to see that things like this aren't dead in our culture. The constant stream of money grubbing ads with no interruption was beginning to feel a bit soul crushing.

At first I thought they were making him steal something but it ended up being that they were making him put it back that was a good choice!

This is one of the ways through which peer pressure can be seen in a positive way. Can we have more of this for the African boys and girls to see since they emulate more from the western countries?
tabby over 1 year ago from kenya
Great way to show how easy it is to be the positive form of peer pressure! Excellent work! Keep 'em coming!

This one had a really surprising ending but still good!
Adam over 1 year ago from San Diego
My favorite "do the right thing" commercial is the one where the lady leaves her purse on the bench and the young man runs all the way to the other bus stop to return the purse...excellent!...it says don't ever judge just by what you think you're seeing.

What a GREAT message! Can't tell you how GOOD it made me feel! Wish I could make the whole world feel and react the way I felt when I first saw it. Just fantastic!!!
Chris Bloomfield over 1 year ago from Okmulgee, Oklahoma
Great message! I agree with other comments, it would be nice to have a share button for Facebook to share these positive messages. The world needs more morality based ads.

These messages are amazing. Please keep creating them. If you could put a "share" button on this link to share with facebook that would be fabulous, I'd like to post them all on my neice and nephews walls. I have already liked the facebook page, but direct links from here would be great. Keep up the good work, and THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for these TV spots promoting honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness. These values are important because they not only build good character, but are essential for raising self-esteem.
Rick Hunter almost 2 years ago from Winston-Salem, NC

Everyone needs to see all of these commercials over and over again. That is how we learn. I think Values.com is great. Please watch and share!

We're thankful to see others willing to do the right thing from what friends and others guide them to do. We have several friends who encourage others to be themselves instead of someone they're not comfortable being. We choose to hang out with those who lead us to the right path in our lives...to make good decisions, and to be proud of doing the right thing and making the right choices.

its good to see that people are willing to encourage others to do the right thing.
krissypooh about 2 years ago from NC
- It's good to see young kids that want to do the right thing. It was easier to put stolen things back, than walking out of the store with them in your pockets!
- Stay on the right track, and choose the right friends to hang with
Jalazisa about 2 years ago from Reidsville
It's great to see kids doing the right thing.

I watched this for the first time yesterday. My daughter who is 12, stopped what she was doing ( texting :O) and watched the commercial and then tells me " Wow mom!! did you see that? " I was not watching it so I replayed it on the dvr and watched it with her. My daughter was "like that is so true! You can pressure your friends to do good stuff... I do it all the time" My heart swelled with pride... thanks for the commercials PEOPLE ARE PAYING ATTENTION TO THE MESSAGES especially our youth! Thank you!

What an awesome and "in your face" video for teens who are constantly saying "everybody's doing it, right". Cast was excellent as well. Thanks.

Near where I live someone has painted the slogan, "Live the change you want in the world."
I think we should all do the right thing and change the world.

It is good to know there are people that are willing to do the right thing even in the midst of making poor choices. We challenge you to be this same ambassador in your community and school.
