Kid President - A Pep Talk to You


I think we all need a pep talk.

(music playing)

The world needs to stop being boring.

Yeah, you!

Boring is easy, everybody can be boring.

But you're better than that.

Life is not a game people.

Life isn't a cereal either.

Well, it is a cereal.

And if life is a game, aren't we all on the same team?

I mean really right? I'm on your team, be on my team.

This is life people, you've got air coming through your nose!

You've got a heart beat! That means it's time to do somethin'!

A poem. "Two roads diverged in the woods...

and I took the road less traveled...

A N D I T H U R T M A N !

Really bad. Rocks!

Thorns! Glass!

My pants broke! Not cool Robert Frost!

But what if there really were two paths?

I want to be on the one that leads to awesome! (music playing faintly)

It's like that dude Journey said,

"don't stop believing,

unless your dream is stupid.

Then you should get a better dream."

I think that's how it goes.

Get a better dream, then keep goin',

keep goin', and keep goin'.

What if Michael Jordan had quit?

Well, he did quit!

No, he retired, yeah that's it, he retired.

But before that? In high school?

What if he had quit when he didn't make the team?

He would have never made Space Jam.

And I love Space Jam.

What will be your Space Jam?

What will you create that will

make the world awesome?

Nothing if you keep sittin' there!

That's why I'm talking to you today!

This is your time. This is my time.

This is our time. We can make everyday better for each other.

If we're all on the same team,

let's start acting like it.

We've got work to do.

We can cry about it,

or we can dance about it.

We were made to be awesome.

Let's get out there!

I don't know everything,

I'm just a kid, but I do know this:

It's everybody's duty to give the world a reason to dance!

So get to it!

You've just been pep talked.

Create something that will make the world awesome!

Play ball!

[movie reel sound] [crashing noise]

Oh hi everybody!

We're all workin' hard to make this an awesome

year for other people, and you guys are doin' it!

You've been super encouraging to me,

so I want to return the favor.

Who do you know that needs some encouragement?

Pass this pep talk along,

and let's get the whole world to dance.

I'm dedicating this video today to my friend Gabbi.

She's a cool kid,

she likes pancakes,

and she's fighting cancer. Like a BOSS.

And to all you watching,

who encourages you?

Send them this video, and let them know.

So get to it!
