Everyone's a hero in their own way...

It's August 29 and here in the Philippines, it's National Heroes Day.

Well, no disrespect to Bonifacio, Rizal, and company... but whenever this time of year comes around, I always end up watching this video.

It's a snippet from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog which was created by one of the people I use the "I'm not worthy" bow move to - Joss Whedon. If you haven't watched the whole series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? DO IT RIGHT NOW! I swear, you won't regret it. It's classic.

Back to the video... it's performed by Nathan Fillion who you usually see in the awesome TV show Castle nowadays. His character's a pretty smarmy guy, but once you get past the insulting words, you'll find there's an honest to goodness message in the song. It's freaking fun. I think I'm going to watch it again now.

Check out the lyrics below and feel free to sing-along.

Everyone's A Hero

It may not feel too classy
Begging just to eat
But you know who does that? Lassie
And she always gets a treat

So you wonder what your part is
Because you’re homeless and depressed
But home is where the heart is
So your real home’s in your chest

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got villains they must face
They’re not as cool as mine
But folks you know it’s fine to know your place

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
In their own not-that-heroic way

So I thank my girlfriend Penny
Yeah, we totally had sex
She showed me there’s so many
Different muscles I can flex

There’s the deltoids of compassion
There’s the abs of being kind
It’s not enough to bash in heads
You’ve got to bash in minds

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got something they can do
Get up go out and fly
Especially that guy he smells like poo

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
you and you and mostly me and you

I’m poverty’s new sherrif
And I’m bashing in the slums
A hero doesn’t care if you’re a bunch of scary
alcoholic bums


Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone can blaze a hero’s trail
Don’t worry if it’s hard,
if you’re not a friggin ‘tard you will prevail

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone a hero in their –
