No half measures

Adverts at the cinema can be a pain.  I really wish they'd just get on with it and show the movie already.  Last night, however, I was happy to have seen the advert of a previously unheard of energy drink.

Sometimes life lessons can be learned even when you're just sitting down, waiting for a film to come on.  Life certainly is interesting.

The following is the full text from the advert (I didn't write it, just making that clear) --

I have virtues, which others may deem vices -- virtues which guide me and together, have made me. I embrace pain, suffering and sacrifice, and gain strength from obsession. It is true; they have given me scars that I know will never fade. But for that, I am grateful. Because they show me what is within me and what is within reach of me.

And through all of this, I live each day without compromise, without regret and without excuse. So as I endure the misfortune which lies in my path, I chase down my vision without diversion or retreat. And in the pursuit of my passions, I am neither timid nor afraid. I am relentless… and I will accept no half measures.

I can only wish I'd written this, but I unfortunately haven't! It's the voice over text from the video, I'm afraid. Thanks for visiting, tho! :)

That is a nice ad. Inspiring. And the graphics are so cool. The advertising people behind this really know what ads are all about.
