This is Good

Well, I’m still painting.  And painting.  And watching American Idol.  Is anyone good enough to win?

I saw this, and I knew I had to share it.  It’s that good.  Prepare yourself.

Whoah...I can't believe anyone laughed at that. I have tears in my eyes. That was VERY powerful. Maybe because I could imagine that being my daughter and my hubby. Thanks for sharing that!!

Christy B said...

Oh yes, I saw this just the other day....definately brought tears to the 'ole eyes...

Laughing? Wow..... I was close to tears also!

Watching AI too now. Is anyone else uncomfortable with Kara and the long haired blonde guys flirting????

I posted an amazing You Tube video tonight also about living in the moment... check it out! You will cry! http://themagicbrushinc.blogspot.com/2010/02/gift-of-ordinary-day.html

Wow that brought tears to my eyes. What happened to the contetants on AI they were so good during hollywood. OMG that Casey James is devilishly good looking.

Juggling Thoughts said...

Well...that commercial is pretty darn awesome. Love it!

Blessed Mama said...

WOW!!!!

Nancy said...

Thanks, Chris, great video.

Lady V said...

:) I wasn't laughing! Nor was I in tears but whatever!

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

Seat belts save lives, that's for sure. If my hubby and I hadn't had them we wouldn't be here after an accident that we were in. Awesome ad.

Wishing I could be watching AI! But the channel that is on is broadcasting the Olympics 24/7. I'm missing all of the good tv. Sometimes I hate living in Canada. :)

Kris said...

Wow...that speaks volumes!!

Mama Thompson said...

That was totally awesome!

And no...no one is good enough to win...what's up with this year?

Who thinks up something like that?! Brilliant!
BTW...*A.I.* is the pits this year. I feel like I could get up there and sing...and let me tell you, that is really saying something! :)

Julia Feitner said...

And..... I'm crying. That was powerful - definitely not gonna forget that video! Thanks for sharing.

Very Powerful message!!! Very powerful!

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

That was beautiful! Thanks for posting that!

That was really good, I'm sending it to my kids who drive.

anyone who has ever lost someone that wasn't wearing a seat belt wouldn't be laughing.

Brought me to tears.

Raelyn said...

That was pretty cool...anyone laughing doesn't get symbolism.

AI....No one great. I like Crystal on the girls side...but just because I think she is "real" and I like Dewyze (can't remember his first name)
To early for a good call on anything yet....BUT I can say that the judges were all over the place last night..."change the songs, make them your own"...to... "That was too original, I didn't recognize it".

Jo said...

I saw that commercial on CNN the other night and I agree it REALLY is good!

Also I really am only watching AI this season to see how Ellen does. haha so far I'm unimpressed with the girls (watching it as I type) we'll see.

Crafty in Paradise said...

WOW! Brilliant & beautiful way to illustrate what we've been told so many times that it tends to get tuned out. Thanks!

Marinela said...

Great find =]
Thanks for sharing.

Kath said...

Woah, chills.

Aura said...

Now I totally feel like a jerk! :) I get what they were trying to say, but his facial expression in the beginning is VERY Saturday Night Live commercial. Well, at least I made you giggle, Chris! Even if every one else just thought I was a big meanie :)

kiakai/Kelly @ Much To Do With Nothing said...

Pretty Cool. Love it!

Carrie said...

Um. WOW. . . .And AI - I KNOW! They all had such.a.rough.week!

My faves tho are Casey (also helps that he's not to bad to look at) & Andrew (LOVE his story) . and Haeley (Totally want to own her version of "I Want To Hold Your Hand") & Didi (as long as she burns that rag rug she turned into a vest!)

:) Have A Great Weekend!

jerriann said...

That was beautiful and powerful. Thank you so much for sharing. I have tears in my eyes.

thewelcomehome said...

Wow. Chills and tears. Makes me want to hug my family.

We always wear seat belts but my kids don't really understand that they can mean the difference between life and death.

Thanks
