I did not watch the Olympics, not one minute so I missed this commercial. It has sparked all kinds of controversy, and either you think it is OK or you don’t. You think it exploitative, or you think it inspirational. I am not going to change your mind, and I am not going to try to.
The first time I saw this commercial the first thing that caught me was the voice. It was the kind of voice you could not help but notice and listen. I listened to the first couple sentences. I was hooked. Eventually I saw was a person come in to view with an imperfect body and external flaws I could not help but notice. He was running, reinforcing the message that the voice was delivering. Greatness is not something given to us but in us.
I like it works for me. I am seeking my personal greatness.
