Am I the last one to see this T-Mobile Welcome Back clip? It is awesome. I think the flashmob ad campaign is rusty. But, in this instance, who cares? I love it! What would you think if you came off a plane home – to that?!? I love the people’s surprised faces. Ironically, they are real. Seriously. It is live filming. The reactions are from true witnesses – filmed by 18 hidden cameras. I like the range of the music selected. The ‘vocal orchestra’ peformand is spectacular: “At Last” by Etta James, “Comin’ Home Baby” by Mel Torme, “Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison, “I am the Passenger” by Iggy Pop and “I Knew You Were Waiting (for me)” by George Michael & Aretha Franklin.

I like everything about this commercial, Saatchi & Saatchi London rocked it.

Nice work, T-Mobile.

Okay, I found another commercial that I like. It’s hilarious.  Maybe I am watching more television than I have been disclosing.  The ad I am referring to is the Free Credit Report Dot Com Pirate Commercial.  Doesn’t it make you laugh?

Apparently:  Because of Identity theft, a man is forced to work in fish food restaurant and where a pirate suit. He and fellow scallywags sing about it.

Lyrics:
They say a man should always dress for the job he wants
so why am I dressed up like a pirate in this restaurant.
It’s all because some hacker stole my identity.
Now I’m in here every evening serving chowder and iced tea.
Should have gone to freecreditreport.com (yeehaa!)
I could have seen this coming at me like an atom bomb.
They monitor your credit and send you email alerts.
So you don’t end up selling fish to tourists in t-shirts.

Here’s the real site to get your report:  https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp

The singer in the commercial is Eric Violette. It is not a real band, rather he is a comedien.  Correct me if I am wrong, but I think he has done all the Free Credit Report Dot Com Commercials:  NEW CAR, and my favorite, DREAM GIRL.
