Creative Inspiration: An Amazing Video-T-Shirt War

This is truly one of the coolest videos out there today. It’s two guys (Rhett and Link), over 200 t-shirts, one fire extinguisher and a lot of talent. If you’d like to see more stuff from Rhett and Link, go to their You-tube channel.

Why do I share this kind of stuff with you. First of all to inspire. Videos like this make one think of new things that might be possible. They are on the creative edge and while I don’t think we should plagiarize anyone, seeing things like this can trigger other things in our imaginations.

But today there’s more to it than that. Check out this video:

Rhett and Link created the first video and put it out there as their gift to the world (it has over 5,000,000 hits by the way) and guess what happened, the folks at Coca Cola and McDonalds saw it and commissioned them to make a video as a commercial for them. Needless to say I’m sure this was quite lucrative for them. Here’s the point. You never know who is looking at the things you create and you never know what will come of them, so a.) always put your best out there, and b.) make sure you put it out, A gift is not a gift until it’s given. (remember, real artists ship!)

I’m not saying you will make a lot of money, but I am saying you will touch and bless somebody, especially if what you are doing is inspired by God. So take what you’re inspired to do, do it the best you can and ship it, give it to the word and trust that God will do with it what He intends.

As an extra bonus, here is a third video that shows how the McDonalds video was made. Thanks to Rhett and Link for giving us these gifts. Be sure to check out all their stuff. These guys are truly amazing.
