Frank Gehry is a name of a great architect. And much to my surprise I have encountered the advertisement on youtube while listening to the Penitent music. This was really good.
[The advertisement in mention gives an opportunity for people to watch of his authorship the masterclass introducing to the architecture. Not so bad, if one would like to take into account what achieved in his life Mr Frank Gehry.]

A penitent man is a humble man. (as he feels that he wasn't right so becomes humble and listens more and apologizes and shows softness in behavior).
