Bright future in your own way 
We can affect our situation and our future if we are willing to unleash our inner talents. What the guy "Rupin" wants to express in his video we do not know, but his optimistic expression can not be missunderstood. He probably didn't do the video because he had to, but because he simply wanted to. It is an easy fix with a simple video camera, a computer and a free account on YouTube. Talented or not, perhaps a decisive step in a direction that was important for him at that time. The video is one of many examples of people's infinite creativity and strong desire to express themselves.

If a picture hides a thousand words. How many is there in a video with a happy song?

The future is so bright, I gotta wear shades 
The song was written in the 80's by the band Timbuk3 and it became a huge hit in the U.S. and England. Like Rupin, we have allowed ourselves to be inspired by this song's text:

Things are going great, 
and they're only getting better 
I'm doing all right, getting good grades 
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades
