Max Byrne’s short was highly commended in the 2013 Inspire a Generation competition. It demonstrates the importance of communicating well in relationships.

Pimp my relationship transcript:

Yo! My name is Gotcha Feelins and I’m here to help a young man called Thalem. I’m here to pimp his relationship.

You just moved in with your female. But you’re having some communication problems.Gotcha Fellin’s is here to help.

So check it! Knowing how to argue or explain your feelings is one of the most important tools in any relationship.

Moving in with someone is a big deal. It can pose some problems. But if it feels right for both y’all, do it! Just remember the three Cs.

  1. Commitment
  2. Cleaning 
  3. Space

You may have your hos and your honeys, but a relationship demands respect, even if you’re from the country. Hurting feelings aint never a good idea. So being in a relationship can be loads of fun. But never understresstimate how much work can be involved.

Every relationship has its ups and downs. Be safe, or be sorry. Or Instead of wearing bling, you’ll be buying this thing, and walking funny like this.

So if you need help you gotta reach out and inspire a generation.
