About This TV Commercial
The idea for "Cafeteria" was actually developed during the making of "Locker." In preparation for shooting "Locker," the director talked with some of the spot's young actors. The young women said that they also had experienced bullying, but unlike with boys, who tend to be more physically aggressive, girls are more verbally aggressive. The staff and directors learned from recent research, as well as talking to young people, that often a person doesn't need a "reason" to be targeted by bullies - it seems that simply being new is "reason" enough!

I just started seeing these commercials today and I love it. I've been what everyone considers introverted my entire life and I found myself smiling and it shocked me. I'm an adult now but I hope these help someone who finds themself "shy" like I am.

That was really nice.
This video shows to reach out to people even if they seem a little awkward and if they are new; they might be a totally different person when you get to know them better.
This video shows courage to just be a nice person sometimes because doing something nice is better then treating someone like they are a nobody.

This video shows a new girl just coming to a new school and everybody has their own little cliche. She feels alone as she walks through the cafeteria looking for one open seat. When she finds one they all leave, but one girl reaches out and comes and sits with her.

The girl was so nice
If there was a new girl , the person that would reach out to make another person feel good and comfertorble and is a kind person.
I think that bulling is really bad and there is no reason for it to happen.people should be kind to others instead of being so rude to others
I think that reaching out for people is important because the other person might feel way better. And you feel strong.
people are mean in the world its good to reach out and go out of your way to make people feel better and make new people feel happy where they are
