About This TV Commercial

Patience is hardest to find when you need it the most! In this charming moment where a young boy innocently sloshes through wet cement we find ourselves asking the question, “What would I do?” just as we find out. We think your viewers will smile with relief and take away a good reminder. Patience…Pass it on.

Video Transcript

Boy: Hi.
Man: Hi.
Anncr/Super: Patience…Pass it on. A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

Patience. Pass It On!

Song whistles in the commercial? Those are from Don't Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin.

I think of my soon covered head to toe in dirt because he ripped through the flowerbed, when discovered he smiled and holds the damaged flora to me and says "I love you momma"! Please keep up the wonderful work, it gives hope for a better tomorrow, if we can all slow things down to see the many blessings that truly are in this world.

My mother and I love this commercial. We're wondering what the little boy's name is, and has he been in anything else.

What is within comes out, we mearly need a bump of an external object to provoke it out. Here a man was full of patience.... So it came out.... If he was full of anger... Anger would have come out..... Great commercial.

I can so see my Dad in this commercial. He might bite his lip but after he got the little boy out and the mess all cleaned up this would be a story that would be told over and over. And with each version a little bit of a different spin. Love it!

I am a Grandfather, known as "Papa." I see a lot of thought in this man's expression toward the little man in front of him standing in his creation. I see & feel much restraint, patience, compassion, and a heartfelt love to do the right thing and to carry on. What a wonderful feeling and life lesson.
