This quick video delivers all the inspiration one could ever need straight from the lips of Mel Gibson, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jimmy Stewart, and Clint Eastwood, among others. In a display of sheer editing mastery, clips of inspirational speeches from forty different movies are spliced together to create one fluid, awe-inspiring address. The video pulls snippets from everything from typical epic and dramatic fare like The Lord of the Rings and Patton to underdog comedies like Animal House and Old School. Yet the montage goes a step further including unexpected surprises like a vocal Charlie Chaplin in a scene from The Dictator and Mary Martin’s 1960 Peter Pan. The text (which is printed in full at the side of the video in the info section) is surprisingly seamless and when the video builds to its climactic finale (or finales), one can’t help but laugh at the concluding line and the familiar images that follow. This little video is definitely worth the two minutes.
