The American Promise Advertising Style

We all have commercials we love. They can be funny or sad. Sometimes the feelings the commercials evoke are so universal that the commercial passes into pop culture status, enduring long beyond it’s finished running.

Then there are commercials that rouse our emotions and wring them out. Make us remember things too important to ever forget. That’s the way I feel about these two commercials highlighting the promise of America. Vindicating its values and all that we believe to be good and true about this Nation.

The American Promise advertising style.

I’m glad to see them because it seems to me that lately too many of us are cowed by the media/politicians/celebrities into thinking that being patriotic is somehow rascist/stupid/hokey.

Well, I’m not afraid to say that when I see the American flag flying high or hear the National Anthem, my heart beats faster, my throat chokes with emotion and tears come to my eyes.

As I’ve said before and will say again, I’M AMERICAN AND DAMNED PROUD OF IT! Don’t be afraid to say it either.

For now, I’m sharing these videos with you that remind me of all that is good and possible in America.

November 2009 – Grand Central Publishing

Click here for more on SINS OF THE FLESH

Caterina Shaw’s only chance for survival is a highly experimental gene therapy – a risk she willingly takes. Now Caterina has new, terrifying powers and she’s been accused of a savage murder, sending her on the run. Mick Carrera is a mercenary and expert at capturing elusive prey. Yet the woman he’s hunting is wounded, vulnerable, and a mystery of medical science. Caterina’s innocent sensuality tempts Mick to show her how thrilling pleasure can be. The heat that builds between them is irresistible, but surrendering to it could kill them both.

Fun Friday – Laptop Skins

Laptop Skin from SkinitIt’s rare for me to go anywhere without my laptop. I use it every day to write and on the weekends. Take it on vacations, you name it.

So it’s nice to keep it safe and also clean. I even found a fun way to decorate it – laptop skins! This is one from Skinit.com where you can also customize a skin. I’m thinking it might be a good way to do some advertising.

There’s a couple of other places as well besides Skinit.com. Here’s some of them in case you want to check them out on this Fun Friday!

Let me know if you check them out and like them or decide to order one!

Just a reminder that next week will be a big b’day bash! Look for a number of guest blogs and prize opportunities next week.

Fun Friday – Ads that you probably never expected!

I cannot take credit for today’s Fun Friday collection, in fact, I can’t post it here, but I can lead you to this interesting review of ads you probably never expected — condom ads, that is. 21 of them in fact.

Some are rather humorous, others . . .

Well, we are talking about condoms.

Anyway, I hope this review of the condom ads gives you a little ha-ha on this Fun Friday. You can click here to see the ads! Thanks to Dahlia Rideout for the article.
