“Esther asks why people are sad. ‘That’s simple,’ says the old man. ‘They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.’” — Paulo Coelho, The Zahir
In line with the idea of forging our own paths in life and ignoring the “American Dream” plan, my younger brother, Peter, and I have sent in our audition tape to Canada’s version of Amazing Race. We are just one of hundreds and hundreds of pairs who entered, but we thought it was a fun project to do together. You never know, maybe we’ll have a shot.
For our video, we decided to do a spoof of the new Molson Canadian commercial (Check it out here). Enjoy!
