In this delightful twist on a classic theme of “helping an old lady across the street” we find a hip teenager absorbed in his music with his buddies at a busy crosswalk.  Without warning, a silver-haired octogenarian suddenly jolts him out of his world by asking him an unexpected question. We all enjoy a timely lesson in manners while the song, “Hold my Hand” accents this charming moment.  Good Manners…Pass Them On.

This message playfully portrays the classic scene of helping an elderly lady across the street.  In a plot twist that both teaches Good Manners to our young hero and all of us in the viewing audience we see that values are sometimes best communicated with humor.


Old Lady: “May I walk you across the street?”
Boy: “Yeah, thanks.”
