About This TV Commercial
"Biker" was made using real bikers! These were great guys, good to work with, and nobody had to be taught how to ride -- they were just being themselves. This added an authenticity and texture to the spot that would've been a challenge otherwise. The area used to shoot this spot may look bigger than it is, as it was primarily filmed in a store parking lot. The neighbors were probably a little surprised to look out their windows and see that many bikers, since the first shot needed a lot of them!
MUSIC: Get your motor running, head out on the highway. Looking for adventure and whatever comes our way. Yeah Darlin' go make it happen. Take the world in a love embrace
BIKER: Hey, this phone is taken.
MUSIC: Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space
OLD WOMAN: Son would this help you?
MUSIC: Like a true nature's child. We were born, born to be wild. We can climb so high
BIKER: Hey, thanks.
MUSIC: I never wanna die
BIKER: Hey, I appreciate it.
MUSIC: Born to be wild, Born to be wild.

The biker was having trouble with his motorcycle then he went to the pay phone but didn't any money . The two old women gave him a dime
These videos make me appreciate my parents who drove home the values I try to express. I love these videos.

Great message but two things wrong.
1) a brother NEVER leaves a brother (broken down especially)
2) kick start or not, he was on A downhill. Bump start the bike. If it don't work, then call a friend.
this is a great example
These videos are great examples of civility, character and compassion. All things college students need to see and think about. I hope to play one as my classes begin each day. Thanks!
Great response to the frustrated man. Made his day.

FBL, you are the "thousands points of light". Thank you for depicting people of all races, ethnicites and nationalities. Your spots and website illustrate the point that good people come in all colors and religions and that we all have a lot more in common than that which makes us different.

Oddly enough, a friend sent me one of the ads during a time that I was at my lowest in years. I just finished watching them all. Excellent! Made my day. Happy New Year to all!

There is no doubt that responding to any negative actions with love and kindness is the right move. Unfortunately,in most cases, the mouth is quicker than the mind
