British orphan Oliver Twist always seems to find a way into our hearts. For this TV commercial, we add our own spin to the famous scene in Oliver’s story when he asks for more food at the orphanage. Take a look as this tale takes on a twist of fate by way of practicing good manners!
I want some more.
What's he doing?
But he can't.
Look at him.
It's just not done.
Please sir, I want some more.
He has asked for more.
Well, he did say please, sir.
Yes he did… and Thank You.
And thank you.
He's a wonderful boy.
I do like the boy!
Please and Thank You. Pass It On.
Was watching a football game and saw your commercials and I love them! I can't wait to share them with my daughter. I really like that there is no hidden agenda with these messages like begging money or recruiting for a religious organization. Thank you for these, they are wonderful.

Great video that a lot of kids and adults in this country need to see and learn from. There just seems to be so many people who just don't know what good manners are! I was raise to respect others and so was my child. However, today so many can't even say a simple please, you're welcome or thank you! Well I say thank you for making this video. So show people it doesn't take a lot of effort to say a few works and you just might get something in return for saying it!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for this video. Ha! Honestly. I worked as a laborer at a large construction company and within 18 short months I was made foreman of a 30 man crew. It wasn't because I was the most skilled or had the most experience, I didn't. I attribute my promotion to being able to say, "Please" and "Thank you" in an industry pretty much devoid of those courtesies. I knew how to treat people properly.

Saw this commercial easily 50 times during the ECU-ODU game. It got better and better each time. The main guy is Oscar quality.

This was so perfectly done. The whole production for a 30 second commercial was of the quality of a feature film. The actor who played the Head Master, he reminds me of in look the guy who used to play a Horror Movie host "Sir Cecil Creape" Loved seeing him on the old The Nashville Network. Anyway. Great job, and loved the whole mini movie. I am also wondering where did this commercial filmed? It's a great location.

Love this commercial! I tell my kids, "Manners tell other people they matter".
Who is the guy that says "More!"? He is great!

As a director of a large daycare for the last 29 years, I must sadly concur that manners have gone out the window! How sad... We do insist on teaching at least thank you and please but it is indeed a bad reflection on our society when we can point ut only 1 or 2 out of 10 children who actually use their manners... let alone their parents!

Fantastic commercial. Saw it for the first time tonight. I will show it to my Grade 6 class tomorrow!

I love this commercial. It's sad though, that society needs a commercial to be reminded to say "please and thank you." My parents raised to be respectful and to always say please and thank you when the occasion calls for it, so I do. I thank the parents who do teach their children manners, because manners go a long way.

The adult male looks like Billy Bob Thornton to me.

This is the best thing on television; and I don't mean just commercials or public service announcements. Beautifully made, beautifully expressed.
Tim Perior about 2 years ago from Porter Ranch, CA
This has to be one of my favorites, I love watching it every time it comes on the TV. I have always taught my kids and grandkids they should say please and thank you, and also send thank you notes for any gifts they receive. So far, they have all followed through. Hope their kids do the same.

I really enjoyed this one. Thank you.

I have to ask, but is that Matthew Lewis playing the part of the soup server? He looks so much like him!
Bee about 2 years ago from NJ
thanks Values, everyone could learn from this, just a 'please' and 'thank you'. Teach your child respect and the world will be a better place.
Tim about 2 years ago from Leduc, Canada
Wow, actually the boy says Asante instead of please. Asante is the Swahili equivalent of Thank you! Great work
John Miller about 2 years ago from Nairobi, Kenya
Ah, if only people would learn from an early age to say these two simple words? What a difference it makes in the level of service one receives. These words are timeless and universal. This is probably my favorite FBL spot.
Paula Hunt over 2 years ago from Carrollton, TX
I have been obsessed with every video and poster you guys have put up. These simply stories deliver messages in a quaint way. I would love to start a group here on campus that advertises all of these messages. Let me know if i can help. Roll Tide!

Who is the adult male actor? Looks like Jim Carrey to me.
John Johns over 2 years ago from Charlotte, NC
My little boy was in the commercial -- what a fun day for him -- he loved the make up and the crew was so good to the kids!! He loves the commercial.
Jodi Mayo over 2 years ago from Salt Lake
I own a day nursery and the ethos of the business is to help develop the 'little people' into socially adept children who have good self esteem and self confidence and the ability to communicate with their peers and their elders. Without social graces a child can become socially isolated. al this because he/she hasn't been taught please and thank you.
