Storytelling at its Best

Everyone loves a great story. They draw you in, entertain, and make you feel like you are really there. Hopefully, they teach you something or inspire you. We’re all in the business of telling stories, and it’s usually easier to recognize a good story than to tell one.

The other day I came across this video, which I believe it an incredible example of telling a great story. It is from Van Halen’s Vimeo page. With very little production, he draws you in and tells you an incredible story. It’s almost six minutes long, which for an internet video is almost an eternity, but it is so well done that you won’t realize it.

You may have heard the story before, but Van Halen would never allow anyone to have brown M&Ms in the dressing room. This story tells you why. Watch the video below or at this link.

What about you? What’s your story you need to tell?
