One of the most important things we can do in life is to “be there” for others. When times are tough, those who show up for us mean more than our hearts can express. This video captures one of those moments. Asking a girl to prom happens all the time—but what this young man does is one in a million.

The great Rascal Flatts song, “I Won’t Let Go,” gives us exactly the words we want to hear when there are no words to say: “I will stand by you, I will help you through...”


Barber: What'll it be boys?

Boy: I need to get rid of some hair.

Friend 1: You are going to look so good.

Friend 2: Oh man!

Barber: For a date?

Boy: I hope so.

Barber: What do you think?

Boy: Shorter, please.

Barber: More like it?

Boy: Shorter.

Barber: That would be a shave.

Boy: Go for it.

Friend 1: I can't believe he's doing it.

Boy: Our work here is done gentlemen.

Sign: Will you go to prom with me?

Announcer: Being There. Pass It On.

Boy: Please?

Girl: Yes.

Being There. Pass It On!

What an awesome video to show love and compassion for what someone is going through! We need more loving, caring people like this in this world especially now with what our country is going through!

The emotional sceen was when she said yes. Accepting one another is the answer.

This commercial is fantastic. The positive messages you are sending are unequaled in any ad on tv (not to mention their stupidity!) I just saw the Encouragement commercial and what a delight . Whichever agency you are using to develop these commercials should be acknowledged for their outstanding work. Kudos!
