A friend posted these videos on facebook.  My island is steppin up in the world.  Real commercials!

This excites me to no end. You have no idea.

It makes me miss home.  The young people in these commercials are what my friends looked like.  Hair pulled back (because the humidity made it impossible to have a “hairdo”).  Even I wore my hair like that.  That’s what I noticed most.  The laid back, non-hollywood style of the islanders.  No glam, just beautiful smiling faces.  Samoans are the happiest people I know.  I’m so proud to know so many and even be part of the family / aiga.
