Heineken Invited Dreamers to Their Private Island Only to Get the Wake up Call of Their Life

It’s easy to have a dream, and it’s even easier for that dream to remain only a dream. Heineken wanted to inspire a select few individuals by running a contest to win a trip to a magical dream island.

They asked people to tell them their dream that they have never lived for a chance to take a trip to the Heineken dream island. Winners were then treated to a nice vacation to this dream island only to get the wake up call of their life. Vacation goers then stumbled upon a scene in which they saw their dreams fading away. One man saw this bar, in shambles. One couple saw their dream boat rusting away on the beach.

Someone once said, “the only way not to realize a dream is to abandon it.”

What these people did next is nothing short of inspiring!
