About This TV Commercial

This message captures the sometimes common tension in a young marriage where there has been a misunderstanding.  The young man in our story leaves to sort out his feelings and winds up getting some sage advice which guides him back home.  The theme is beautifully punctuated by Kenny Chesney’s hit song, “The Good Stuff.”  Viewers will enjoy the simple but powerful message centering on understanding.  The Good Stuff…Pass It On.

Wife: (yelling) “Don’t you even think about that…”
Bartender: “What can I get for you, man?”
Husband: “A better life than the one I’ve got.” “…a life kind of like that one.”
Bartender: “Hey, it wasn’t always a perfect picture, but there were some perfect parts…”

Music in background:
Well, me and my lady had our first big fight ?So I drove around 'till I saw the neon lights ?Of a corner bar ?Not a soul around but the old barkeep ?Down at the end and looking half asleep ?But he walked up and said what'll it be? ?I said the good stuff
'Cause it's the first long kiss on a second date ?And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate 'cause ?Your hands are shakin' so much ?And it's the way that she looks with the rice in her hair ?Eatin' burnt supper the whole first year ?And askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up ?Yeah man, that's the good stuff ?ANNCR/SUPER: The Good Stuff…Pass it On. A Message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

Commitment. Pass It On!

I LOVE IT!

That was deep! Makes you think more about the good in life than the bad and makes you think not everything in life is bad. Sure there are some bad parts here and there but it will always get better even though it may take some time for it to happen.
Jose, Lport ny

This video is so true... I love it. I believe that this commercial should be veiwed by many more.

I like this commercial because it reminds me that no matter how bad a fight can be at the end you can still end up forgiving each other.
Christine A, Illinois

This video is very touching, it reminds me of my parents. Not everything was ever perfect, they had fights, but their love overcame. Very personal and touching, I love it!

Wish this comercial would get played more often. I think more people that are married should pay more close attention to it. Too many people now days give up to quickly on thier marriage, marriage takes work and work pays off with the Good Stuff in the end!
Tara M, Wisconsin

I tear up whenever I see this commercial.

@ martha j "down at the end looking half asleep."

I love it but want to know what the words are in the first part while the bar tender is speaking. I can't make them out and it's driving me crazy!
martha j, cincinnati, ohio

I remember the words my sister, Micah, gave me. She says relationships aren't going to be easy but you make the best of the situation.
Chris l, Vicksburg

Who is the girl in the video?
Ray B., Hobbs, NM

Wow. What a powerful message this is. Love is beautiful especially when its shared with a person you really love. The person I thought of when I saw this was my boyfriend, my teddy bear. At times there are dull moments, but thanks to God we are up again. Definitely more great and memorable moments in our relationship. Love is a beautiful thing. I LOVE YOU BABY!
Amanda O., Bronx, New York

This spot needs to played a whole lot more; perhaps we would not have a 50% divorce rate and so many lonely children from broken homes creating a circle of hurt we can't even begin to imagine. This Generation of Children (and I am one, I am 18) when they grow and get married THIS is the lesson we need to be taught-to stick it out past the emotions and really make "love" mean something now-a-days. I have been with my man 3 years now and we've had MANY rough patches but overall, I grow to love him more every year.
