About This TV Commercial

Special Athlete features a story that touches hearts and reminds us for a moment that not all victories happen at the finish line. For anyone who has ever watched athletes with disabilities the scene of stopping the action to rescue a competitor is a common one. No one is left unaffected by their innocent concern for others. The message is further lifted by the remarkable song, “Get Back Up” by TobyMac. We hope you enjoy this message of “Sportsmanship.”

Video Transcript

MUSIC:

You'’re rolled out at the dawning of the day
Heart racin'’ as you made your little get away,
It feels like you’ve been runnin’ all your life
But, why? Oh why?

REF: Runners on your mark. Get set. (Gun shot)

So you’ve pulled away from the love that would’ve been there,
You start believin’ that your situation’s unfair

But there’s always scars,
When you fall back far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
It’s never too late to get back up again,
One day, you’re gonna shine again,
You may be knocked down but not out forever,
Lose our way, we get back up again,

It’s never too late to get back up again,
One day, you’re gonna shine again,
You may be knocked down but not out forever,

Lose our way, we get back up again,
So get up, get up
You’re gonna shine again
It’s never too late, to get back up again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever.

I love this commercial. It really is the best commercial that I have ever seen and YES we can learn something from it. This includes the politicians. As people we have lost our way and the Special Athletes are teaching us how we can find it! Go Special Athletes. Love whoever has put this commercial out there.

ThIs has become my favorite commercial of all time. Wish people could learn to live together and think of each other as these .

I love this commercial. If there is an award for the best commercial, this one should get it. I live in an over 55 community and I am sad to say that I have found many older adults who have forgotten this message. They think more of themselves than of their neighbors.
