Last September, Diesel introduced its “Go with the Flaw” mantra intended to inspire people to not only accept flaws in their lives, but to wear imperfection with pride and to embrace them. Society constantly strives for perfection. But perfection is boring, its forgettable. The world needs to hold tight to the imperfections and individuality that makes it worth living.

Now continuing in that vein, Diesel presents a short film centered on a beautiful “Go with the Flaw” romance, the story of a boy and a girl who meet and fall in love right after they both choose to remedy their very obvious, society-defined, physical flaws. In a short-movie directed, once again, by Francois Rousselet to the timeless soundtrack “What’s a Matter Baby” from Small Faces, we discover that, eventually, our so-called flaws will always be stronger than any of our attempts to hide them. So why not embrace, celebrate them and keep the world as it’s meant to be: beautifully flawed?
