Pass It On®

About This TV Commercial

When we try something new, we are taking a risk. It makes us susceptible to criticism or even ridicule. These are often difficult times when a kind word of encouragement may be all we have to keep us going. Where would any of us be without people who believe we can do the impossible?

This commercial affirms the notion that in the big and small moments of our lives we have to remember to keep going-to live our dreams. Bon Jovi's anthem, "We Weren't Born to Follow," provides a triumphant crescendo for this public service announcement.

We can either be the word or the criticism. We all need to learn how to work on how to stop & think before you, "striking our words." I think this commercial was awesome at directing it's audience and getting it point across.
