A floating football pitch that fills your heart with courage
What an inspiring TV commercial! And it’s based on a true story!
The story took place in the fishing village of Koh Panyee,Thailand in 1986. A bunch of young football fans wanted to run their own football team, but there was simply no space on such a rocky island. To practice football, the kids collected scrap woods and built their own floating football pitch. With their passion and superb skills gained from practicing on such a tiny piece of floating dock, they won the youth champions of southern Thailand for seven consecutive years.
Now if you ever hear anyone telling you that you can’t do this or that (it maybe your own voice frightening yourself), don’t listen to those distructive voices. The group of kids were mad enough to pursue their passion for football and wonderful things just came out of it!
As the advertisement proclaims at the end,“Whatever challenges you have in life, if you think you can make the difference, we say you can!”
I cannot agree with it more! =)
Watch the film and be inspired!
