Plot / Description

"Shoes are Boring. Wear Sneakers." 
This commercial tries to show you the difference between shoes and sneakers, but more importantly between the people who wear shoes vs. people who wear sneakers. 
Shoe people fall asleep at work, while sneaker guys play guitars and have fun. 
People who wear shoes go running first thing in the morning, while sneaker people still haven't come home from being out all night. 
Shoe people go to lame parties and can't dance, but sneaker people go to the cool after-parties. 
People who wear shoes fall down, but people who wear sneakers do cool skateboarding tricks.

(Lyrics) 
K-hole at the DalĂ­ 
Seeing the unknown 
Well it might have been the molly 
'Cause my mind's being blown 
You turn around and you don't know where you've been 
You look up at the glass dome and the room beings to spin 
Let's go out and find the ocean 'cause I think we need a swim 
Turn around, start it over, let's begin 
Like the minis at the Louvre 
Spinning down the aisle 
And the paintings of the Louvre 
Now I'm feeling very smart 
You turn around and you don't know where you've been 
You look up at the glass dome and the room beings to spin 
Let's go out and find the ocean 'cause I think we need a swim 
Turn around, start it over, let's begin

Shoes Keep It Down 
Sneakers Make a Scene 
Shoes Go Running at Dawn 
Sneakers Go Home at Dawn 
Shoes Party 
Sneakers After Party 
Shoes Hit the Deck 
Sneakers Nail the Landing 
Shoes Keep It Clean 
Sneakers Get Dirty 
Shoes Pay the Fare 
Sneakers Ride for Free 
Shoes are Boring 
Wear Sneakers
