This is the best I can find for the first video. The poodle seems quite happy.

After watching all 6 videos, I feel that I have been brainwashed by Tom. Now I can only see sheep and lambs jumping, and a knitter knitting her hair.

If we want to find meanings in these sheep and lambs, it's easy to get into cliché. There are already too much promotion for this "dare to be different" things in the market, especially targeted at young audience. When you see the first colored poodle lamb jumping, you know what is going on there.

It's easier to please young people that they can be different, special, unique, even in somewhat a shocking way. It makes them happy, of course. Who doesn't want to have the freedom to do whatever they want? But there are several problems to it. One of them is: when being rebelliously shocking become a trend, how do the older population pass their experience? If a kid listens to his dad and behave more conventionally, he automatically become "not cool" among his peers, so he has to learn to "be different" even when it's not necessary. In a group of dyed poodle lambs, it's difficult for someone to keep his own color.

In the end, we see a bunch of colorful, partly shaved lambs jumping happily. Is it a happy ending?

Rock points are always spot on! Indeed "dare to be different" is a great notion in my opinion. however, when it becomes kind of a trend, or out of peer pressure then, highly possible the "different" will end up being the same. That's really no good and in vain.

It's always easier said than done, especially when you don't even know what you say really is, "critical thinking", "human right", "freedomd" and "democracy" to name a few. At the end of the day, what actually matters is to really understand them, and to know what you are doing. But that's just not easy I would say. Ok, guess I made it serious again. Will leave you to it lo~ 8)
