Disney’s “I Am A Princess” Commercial

5 Oct


Growing up, what I loved about the princess movie classics is that they taught me we’re all beautiful and we all deserve happiness. And of course, life isn’t always fair. The more current ones taught me that just because you don’t fit in doesn’t mean you don’t fit in. And that we’re all capable if we believe.

So now that I have a daughter, who is now two, I am curious how she will feel about princesses. In the last couple weeks she has expressed an interest in Disney Princesses, particularly Rapunzel from Tangled. Because she doesn’t talk quite well, I am unsure what is drawing her in. I think it may be the pretty dresses. She is really into fashion. But I am unsure if it something beyond it.

After watching the spot, I think it is cool to redefine princess through a modern Kate Middleton lense, but I don’t quite understand why we need to call all girls princesses and why they need to believe they are.

I feel like the values in this spot are important. And just because one has these values doesn’t make her a princess. It makes her a good person. My daughter is not a princess, but she exhibits some nice values sometimes. Like her compassionate moments where she snuggles with her baby sister. Her passion for exploring when she tries something new without being afraid. Her clapping and support when she sees her big brother do something great. She is not a princess. I will not call her that. Her name is Stella.

Chevy Sonic Super Bowl Spot and More

4 Feb

This Chevy Sonic spot is incredibly entertaining. Everything about it is cool. The music, the tricks and the fact that it’s for Chevy.

This Chevy spot is hilarious thanks to its awesome casting.

And the Chevy YouTube Channel is beautifully designed and makes me want to look at everything, which is saying something. Because these days, with two little ones and a third on the way, I have literally zero down time.

The Mercedes SLS AMG is one sweet ride.

Let me start off by saying, I am not a fan of Mercedes-Benz. Nothing against the fancy German engineering, but I just don’t like driving something that give off the perception that I’m a rich asshole.

But then I saw this commercial for the Mercedes SLS AMG and I swear to god, I was like, I don’t care if people think I’m a rich asshole. I mean, look at it. It is absolutely FN beautiful.

Now if only I could come up with $150K or whatever it costs to get one. (Damn you sucky housing market!) I guess I’ll just have to settle for looking at some rich asshole’s ride with envy.

Gatorade Commercials

I love poetry. And I love the rhythm, flow and beauty of this Gatorade spot called “Wooden Poem.” Coach John Wooden has a great voice. And I really like the message of setting an example.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. – John Wooden

I’d rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent. -John Wooden

Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts. -John Wooden

Colonial Williamsburg Commercial

Even though this is old, I still think it’s a great spot. It was done by my co-workers trac-E Nenna and Mick Sutter at Arnold Worldwide. I wish the other spots in the campaign were posted, too.
