Haircut :30

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!

I think this commercial is one of the most touching, memorable commercials I’ve ever seen. When you’re young and you’re in school, you don’t do a lot of things right and when he cuts his hair so he could look like her, that is the most touching thing ever! I still get choked up every time I see it ♥️👩‍🦲🧑‍🦲 and that music, perfect!

Reminds me of checking into US Navy boot camp. The Master Chief barber asked me how I want it cut-I told him to take it all off since I won't be going anywhere for at least 8 weeks-he gave me a little trim. The kid behind me in line had a huge afro-same question-told the barber he wanted a little trim (like mine) so the barber mowed it all down. That kid was crying his eyes out! This one is a great reminder to consider others and let the heart speak rather than the outward appearance. I know of several young ladies from my Sunday School classes that have donated their hair to the 'Locks of Love' organization to make wigs for folks that have lost their hair to cancer treatments-each of them have turned out to be fine young women that love the Lord with their whole heart and love others with the respect and dignity that we all deserve. Great video! Thanks.

I think he was doing that for a really good friend. He did that so she would not be judged by the way she looks because she might have a really bad sickness. He did that to support her so she would not feel different.

It's not only this one commercial, it's All of the commercial's. It's like I can't help myself, I cry when I watch them. I love a "feel good" moment!
