You Don’t Know What You’re Missing

Two best mates prove that having friends from different backgrounds is invaluable.


Isaac and Michael are two mates from different cultures.

In our new video, You Don’t Know What You’re Missing, Michael sits down in Isaac’s barber’s chair and the two look back on their friendship.

Watch the full episode below.

It started as friendly competition on the basketball court.

But as the two got older, their friendship grew and provided opportunities for new and different experiences.

Michael even joined Isaac for Ramadan last year.

“It’s that sense of like you (Michael) made the effort to get to know our culture as well. You kind of took that first step which showed me what kind of person you actually are,” Isaac says.

Michael also appreciates how Isaac’s family has always welcomed him like another family member.

“Hanging with your family, not a single person, no matter who I meet, whether it’s the first time or the 100th time, they’ll greet me like I’m family,” he says.

You Don’t Know What You’re Missing is based on a true story of two friends.

The young Michael and Isaac are played by paid actors.
