About This TV Commercial

Often dubbed the "most fun" of FBL's spots to shoot, "Reach" was filmed on a beautiful day. The two actors were indeed cruising down the open road. In the close-up shots of the guys in their Jeep, however - as with most similar shots of people in cars - the Jeep was actually being towed. Cameras were mounted on a camera trailer alongside of the vehicle.

Randy Bachman, the singer/songwriter of "Takin' Care of Business", was excited about the spot, and the two actors played off of each other very well. The concluding line - "Saved the day!" - was unscripted. It came naturally to the actor, the director liked it, and the team decided to keep it.

We also need compassion, honor , loyal, self service , and duty

I've watched this video more times than I can count, and I love it more each time I see it. I'm an administrator at a treatment center for at-risk teens, and this video has been part of our higher-values-based curriculum for the past 3 years or so. Everything about this production is spot on---the story itself with its deft manipulation of stereotypical images that "spring load" the viewer's mind to expect the worse; the choice of songs; the two actors, each of whose perfectly disguised performances taught us at once about the value of "doing the right thing when nobody's around, while cautioning us not to judge others by their appearances. Cast and crew deserve Oscars all around! Bravo!

Always try to do the right thing

I think the message was that you need to help others because if that was you you would want to someone to help you out aswell. I think I would probably leave it because it is dangerous and just tell the truck driver.
