Advert transcript:

Yes, I can, suddenly.
Yes, I can.
“Gee, I’m afraid to go on”
Has turned into, “Yes, I can!”
Take a look, what do you see?
133 lbs of confidence, me.
Got the feeling I can do anything.
Yes, I can!
Something that sings in my blood
Is telling me
Yes, I can!
I was born today.
I can go all the way.
Yes I can (x14)
Hey! Yes, I can!
No. You can’t.
Yes, I can!
Are you ready?
I can climb Everest.
Yes, I can.
I can fight here all night
And never rest.
Yes, I can.
I was born today.
I can go all the way.

Are you looking forward to the Olympics and Paralympics? What are you most looking forward to?
