Plot / Description

"Canon Live for the Story TV Advert - Boundaries" 
Your world grows with each story you have, so live for the story. 
 
This ad starts with a toddler. Everywhere he walks, the darkness turns to light. The commercial follows him into adolescence and adulthood, and the light always follows him and his adventures. As a teen, he hops on a bike and by the time he gets to the end of the block, he's in his 20s and meeting up with some friends with a car. The go off on a road trip and run into a field having the time of their lives. They end up playing a piano in a train station, riding a water slide, jumping into a pool fully clothed, in the hospital, and running with horses. Live for the story.

Voiceover

(Lyrics) 
Mama said, "Well, Mike, don't you want to be comfortable?" 
I said, "NO! I don't want to be comfortable." 
I wanna be scared out of my head, and lost out of my mind. 
I want to fall in and out of love a few thousand times. 
I want to spend all of my money on my friends and on [drugs]. 
I want to ride around on a horse and give people hugs. 
And when I come into town they'll say, "Oh, there's Mike. 
There's something wrong with that boy. I swear he just ain't right." 
Cause I won't waste another day. 
Livin' someone else's way 
I wanna be happy 
I wanna be free 
Who cares what they say 
I'm doing me
