Anything inspirational?

I love this....



....even though it's an ad for jeans.

It seems inspirational and moving, even though the whole video probably means nothing at all. I think its the voice and the words make it seem so touching. Too bad I found out about this poem by Walt Whitman from a jean commercial. Does it make me want to go out and buy Levi's jeans? No. But I think the video is beautiful. Why does something so creative end up being a freakin commercial??

Makes me wonder why movies can't be made to move people, more often anyway. I mean really MOVE, touch-the-soul type stuff. Yeah, a really hilarious comedy, mind-numbing action movies are fun to watch but is there anything inspirational out there? Any recommendations?

Well, it doesn't have to be inspirational....something that would touch the soul. The last thing I can remember that moved me was Crash. Yeah....that's long ago.

Some of the best creativity we have comes from commercials...there are just too many bad ones cluttering up the commercial breaks and losing us before we get to see the good ones.
