Lyrics used in the commercial

I can change the world
with my own two hands
make it a better place
with my own two hands

I'm gonna make it
a brighter place
with my own two hands
I'm gonna help the human race
with my own two hands

I can hold you
in my own two hands
and I can comfort you
with my own two hands
with my own, with my own two hands

Description

This promo begins with Curious George releasing a white dot from a box. The dot moves into the next shot and bounces in time with the music over the corresponding lyrics shown on the screen. It then joins into the basketball scene. It continues bouncing across the next shot of a man at his desk, moving around his desk items as it does. Next the white dot enters a music classroom, banging on several instruments before being shot out of a tuba. As it bounces in the following shot it gets splatter painted and then bounces into an ocean scene with a scuba diver and a shark, as it swims around it washes the paint off. A man in the next scene uses the wet dot to water a tree he is helping to plant. A lecturer then grabs the ball as it bounces around the image of spinning galaxy and tosses into the next shot where Sesame Street character "The Count" counts the number of times the ball bounces. The dot is then off to an outdoor celebration before finally stopping at a grassy area.
