This time of year is when folks always think about commercials. In my mind one of the most brilliant commercials ever made is one we don't think about much these days. Remember this commercial was done in 1997, a very different time, for its creators. It's amazing what a difference 11 years makes, especially when we think about what entities in the world truly change people's quality of life.
While I love the commercial in alot of ways I think the words are even more powerful by themselves.
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do.
