Greatness Awaits

diablo_eyeThis commercial from Sony for PlayStation is incredibly well-done and the script is as an inspiring call to action as any I’ve heard — including the St. Crispin’s Day speech from Shakespeare’s Henry V (yeah, I think it’s THAT good!)

Don’t take my word for it. Watch the video for yourself and see what you think.
Leave a comment and tell me how it made you feel.

Me?

I may just add this audio as my alarm clock wake-up tone so I can start every day with this kind of inspirational kick in the ass.

Greatness Awaits

Who are you not to be great?
You, with the imagination of a brilliant child and the powers of an ancient god.

Who are you to be ordinary?
You, who can “rescind” life, or raise the dead…

Who are you to be afraid?
You, who can serve as judge and jury while hoarding infinite lives.

Who are you to be a slave to the past?
You who can travel time like the oceans and rewrite history with a single word.

Who are you to be anonymous?
You, whose name should be spoken in reverent tones or in terrified whispers.

Who are you to deny greatness?
If you would deny it to yourself, you deny it to the entire world.

And we will not be denied.
