About This TV Commercial

In a fast-paced stream of events through alleys and with a police car—all underscored by the Black Eyed Peas song, “Where is the Love,” we watch the drama unfold and wonder if the young man is stealing or returning the purse—until the last triumphant moment.

Video Transcript

(Stand Alone Lyrics)
What’s wrong with the world, mama?
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas.
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama.
Only attracted to things that’ll bring the trauma.
Yeah. Madness is what you demonstrate,
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates.
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight.
Take control of your mind and meditate.
Let your soul gravitate to the love ya’ll, ya’ll.

People killin’, people dying.
Children hurt and hear them cryin’?
Can you practice what you preach?
Would you turn the other cheek?

Boy: Ma’am!
Woman: (Gasps)
Boy: You forgot your purse.
Woman: Oh. You don’t know how worried I was. Thank you! Thank you very much!
Police Officer: Hey!

Voiceover: Honesty. Pass it on.

Police Officer: Nice move kid. Donut?

Voiceover: A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

(Lyrics Underneath Above Dialogue)
Father, Father, Father help us,
Send us some guidance from above.
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’,
Where is the love?
The love, the love.
Where is the love?

Honesty. Pass It On!

I love this video so much. Someones style doesn't necessarily mean that they are bad or mean. I absolutely love the alternative style but I don't like to cause chaos or steal. And this video is amazing by showing this. Don't judge someone by what they look like on the outside.
Jazzmyn, In a good state of mind

Mama always said that You can't judge a book by it's cover. The same with this young man.
