Here's an unusual video that will surprise you.

KampaiTube's Review:

Amazing isn't it? You just feel like smiling right now, yup that's how impressive and powerful this video was! Never thought that complimenting someone else can feel this great :) The video and audio was good!

Bold and daring, this is the first thing we thought when we first watched it. This was suppose to be a heart-warming, smiling video but why is everything black and white? Usually those are the elements of gloomy and darkness, but this video challenged it and took it from its own perspective. The idea of this film was delivered well but maybe some might find it a little hard to catch up like the part when a girl shouted ' Next' at 4:02 after the group danced, it got us confused for a while too.

They even include humour as well when Hugh met Bush and even Saddam to make them smile :P but this also got us thinking, being unappreciated can be this draining and down. Nope, I'm not talking about the people Hugh complimented but rather Hugh himself! Look at what he said at the last part of the last dialogue of the show ''No one has ever said that about me before''. Why? because people usually take, but never give, so have you been giving? ;)

The person who produced this was also acting in the show itself as the main character, Hugh Newman. His actual name is 'T.J Thyne'. This video even won an award for the "Best Live Action Short Film" at 2007! If you wanna know more about this video's background, click here! :)

- When I was a little girl, my mother got very sick and she stayed that way. And over the years she juts got so sad that she forgot how to smile, and seeing her like that I couldn't smile either, and I didn't... for years. But then one day, a young man came up to her and told her how beautiful she was, so beautiful that you wanted to take her picture. He made her smile and suddenly after all those years she got better. I knew it was you, I looked everywhere for you, but I couldn't find you anywhere. I went to every garage in town, I paid every fee they had but I couldn't find you.
- You paid for parking... for me?
- Yes, because you... are great.
- You... are amazing.
- No one has ever said that about me before.
