About This TV Commercial

This spot was intended to reach out to all of us who are not so athletically minded. No matter what your talent is, it is important and worth developing. For adults, parents and mentors, it's important to help young people search for that particular ability, which may not be so obvious at first. In the filming of this spot, the members of the choir performed very well - especially considering that they had just learned the song!

I ACTUALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO SAY; EACH COMMERCIAL I WATCHED SPEAK DIRECTLY TO ME.., I CAN'T HELP MYSELF BUT TO LAUGH AND ENJOY THE AD, OVER AND OVER AGAIN
SELORM, GHANA

I love this commercial! It's the best one by far, very touching and inspirational!
mindy crouch, dayton ohio

Just beautiful as all of your commercials are! It just shows a mom trying to help her son find the best in his world and if it is not sports but singing... she is proud NO matter what... you can see the pride that both of them take. Very touching!
Kathy, SouthEast Oklahoma

I think sports is better than singing. To me. He thinks singing is better than sports because he has never played sports before.
Connie R, California

This is awesome. My mom told me to look it up because it reminded her of me and my son. My son who is only 4 1/2 years old right now has tried a few sports and is NOT the most athletic one on the field/court. I love sports but as a young child myself I was extremely sick with a chronic disease so I wasn't able to participate in sports (until high school when I was a cheerleader for 3 years). I did however, have a talent for music at a very young age which my mother saw and encouraged me to develop it. I ended up playing violin, piano, clarinet and bass clarinet and being a member of my high school band and choir and being able to sing at Carnigie Hall in NYC. Anyways my son has the build of an athlete already...very tall for his age and solid. Since he was a baby strangers would pass by and say what a great football player he will be someday...and who knows, maybe someday he will be a great football player...then again maybe he won't. Maybe he just doesn't care about being an athlete as much as some kids. Right now he'd rather run circles around the other kids and he's afraid of the ball...but he is so smart and already has a great talent and love for music. I do worry about him being teased as he grows up for his size and his not-so-athletic ability....but I hope he finds a passion for something that makes him happy. I think he will be great musician and I hope he finds it a great outlet as I did growing up when the world wasn't so kind I had music to get lost in, put emotion into and lift me up! Whatever my son decides to do I will definitely be there by his side cheering him on and being his biggest fan!!!!

Joshua Nyantika, Nairobi, Kenya

this is me when i was little because i wasnt good with sports and then when i got bigger i got better so thats me in the video ha!ha!ha!
EDUARDO ANTUNEZ, Omaha,Nebraska

That's me right there. This brought a tear to my eye, because in the eyes of my peers I was lame cause I didn't play sports and sung instead, but in the eyes of my parents I was doing a wonderful job and as long as I was doing what I was in to, it was the best.
James S, Ohio

I love many of your spots on TV, but this is by far my favorite! You see, my 7 year old grandson, who had leukemia at the age of 2 and endured 3 1/2 years of chemo treatment, looks and acts just like this boy! He may never be a great athlete, but he is blessing so many lives....including his single grandmother who is raising him! I cry every time, unashamedly!
Jhon, Skyforest, California

I saw this spot the other day and I started to cry a little because The Prefect Fan had to be one of my fave songs by BSB off their Millienium cd. The first time I heard the song I cried because the song was so amazing and sweet. In the spot, I love how she tried to help her son find his thing and she was proud of him even though his spot was not in sports. It is so inspirational to never give up no matter how many times you fail and no matter what someone will be proud of you.
