I just saw a commercial I've never seen before. Text appears on the screen saying, "What do we call 760,000,000,000 dollars loaned to stimulate economic growth?" Then a few of those zeros fall to the ground, as if they are seeds, and a bunch of brand new animated buildings sprout from where the "seeds" fell. Appropriately, it's all colored red.
Thinking this was an ad for some group criticizing the Stimulus Bill, I was looking forward to a good punchline. But instead, more text appears on the screen, saying, "A good start"!
A good start to what, exactly?
At that point I expected an "Organizing for America" logo. But lo and behold, the Bank of America logo appears. With the popularity of the bailouts and the stimulus bill, I have to wonder what idiotic ad agency came up with this one?
