Earlier today, I was finalizing my notes for my classes for the coming week.
One of the topics I will cover this week is advertising, which gives me a chance to show a few of my favorite commercials, many of which I have highlighted in previous posts.
As I was double-checking to make sure the links to all my favorite commercials still work, many of the ads had me in tears.
Here is one such video:
It’s a wonderful commercial, highlighting the powers of friendship and determination. You’d never know it was a beer commercial until the very end. I always find it amazing that a company can create an ad that can get the viewer so emotionally involved, while also taking the opportunity to showcase its product or service, all in just one minute.
The video made me think of an earlier post I had written about another commercial that also featured someone in a wheelchair, this time a much younger person.
Here is that video:
Kudos to the creative people behind such commercials. They are a testament to the power of words, music, and video.
