Guitar Hero

When we try something new, we are taking a risk. It makes us susceptible to criticism or even ridicule. These are often difficult times when a kind word of encouragement may be all we have to keep us going. Where would any of us be without people who believe we can do the impossible?

This commercial affirms the notion that in the big and small moments of our lives we have to remember to keep going-to live our dreams. Bon Jovi's anthem, "We Weren't Born to Follow," provides a triumphant crescendo for this public service announcement.


[electric guitar being played poorly]
Girl: That sounds awful!
Girl: Seriously awful!
Teacher: But a lot better than last week!
[guitar music]
[lyrics] We weren't born to follow…

Inspire, support, even the best musician or athlete had to put one foot in front of another to learn to walk.
