At the United State of Women Summit two weeks ago, Oprah Winfrey asked Michelle Obama how men can help in the fight for gender equality. FLOTUS’ answer was short and sweet:
“Be better,” she said. “Be better at everything.”
The First Lady’s words were so magical that one genius man created a ringtone called “Be Better: The Ringtone“ (featuring Oprah, of course). Zak Griffler, a New York City-based filmmaker, told The Cut that his friend jokingly said she’d love FLOTUS’ “be better” remarks as a ringtone and — voilà! — he made it happen.
Head here to listen to the ringtone.
“Being a multimedia person who went to art school, I thought this is exactly the sort of thing that a best friend casually makes near midnight on a weekday,” Griffler told The Cut.
You can download the full ringtone on Griffler’s website.
The filmmaker put it perfectly when he said: “Isn’t it great that when you get a phone call you can have Michelle Obama tell anyone in a decent proximity to your phone that men can be better?”
Yes, yes, and more yes.
