One of the cutest videos online

October 11th, 2006 - 12 Comments

This is one of the best videos I’ve seen online.

But first of all, what kind of guy uses the word “cute”? I don’t know. But when I sent this video around to my friends yesterday and said “check out this cute video,” one guy actually said (and I quote), “I hate you for sending this.” Meanwhile, my sisters were cooing like 13-year-old girls at a John Mayer concert.

It doesn’t have anything to do directly with personal finance, but it did give me some ideas about taking an abstract, seemingly boring concept and make it completely interesting. Hmm…

  1. And you posted this why? Oh yeah, something about “taking an abstract, seemingly boring concept and make it completely interesting.” riiiiight. :) “jk”

  2. Thanks for sharing video. It would be great if this ad is shown on TV more often.

  3. Nice, Ramit. Very ‘aw’. Okay, back up to the macho pedestal now.

  4. I can’t stand how cute this is. makes me sick. I suggest you balance things out a bit and talk about the harsh financial realities of life in your next post.

  5. Really enjoyed it. Have added the same in my blog also. Thanks.

  6. This ad was shown before every movie this summer here in Canada. Chapters, Indigo, and Coles, are all part of the Indigo Books & Music chain (TSX:IDG). Nice find, Ramit. Although I always thought it was wrong for the teacher to read the note out loud.

  7. A good message Ramit, although a little too cutsy beside some of the cynical writing on your site :)

    NG

  8. OH. MY. WORD.

    *Ralph …*ralph….blaaaaahhh

    that was so cheesh…hallmarky-sentimental…

    and utterly dumb.

    the kid was too young to write like shakespeare….Literate or not!

    Inspire my foot! That kid should be writing about baseball in some phenomenal fashion.

    gag. :) And yes…a good teacher would not read the note out loud…and the boy would be blushing 8 shades of RED!

  9. So cute. Gosh, I hate that I find little kids cute and the requisite heartstrings pulled, but…cute.

  10. My eyes are bleeding.

  11. I want that 20 seconds of my life back.

  12. i’m afraid i hate you too… :)
