Come on guys, lets be honest, think about who they are marketing to, kids under the age of 18. This is the message that will most strongly resonate with that group. Trotting out genuinely passionate programmers probably wont carry the same weight as a name or face they can recognize. Think of this as PR for coding in general not a call to inspiration or something.

Kids need to be open to the idea and know that a life of programming does not mean a life stuck in the dungeon of nerd hell but can mean a profitable productive and meaningful existence. The video does all of these things IMO.
