Swashbuckler



Is the church still making ads? It doesn't seem like I've seen one since the 80's!

That is a good one. Now if they'll do a Star Wars spoof, my family could do the commercial. The boys even have light sabers.

Cute.

But I have to say that I'm a little weirded out by the sidebar adds on facebook.

The mom is the lady from the church movie where she goes to get a temple recommend (from Elder Maxwell) and can't! Incidentally, her fiancee in that movie is Aaron Eckhart....different lives, eh?

Loved the commercial! I used to love watching those.

Kaden loves it. I agree with godess, those commercials have come a long way.

That was so cute! I loved seeing it. And about your other post--why you need a maid . . . my kids always hate it when I help them clean their rooms because by the end of the cleaning session I am not a nice person--at all. And about throwing things away--my biggest regret is throwing away some of my husband's really old clothes that he had when we got married. I wish I saved them to use for costumes later on. He seriously was still wearing his high school clothes when we got married--five years out of high school. They were hilarious, but now no one believes me when I tell about them. :-)

I think these new ads are so cute.

No Cool Story said...

Oh yeah, we rock.

I see them on TV every now and then. I saw this one the other day on-line and just laughed out loud. The dad just cracks me up. "The princess is sleeping."

Melissa said...

I've never seen that ad! I LOVE IT!!!! No Cool Story is right... we rock!

I got this as a forward a couple weeks ago, and my son has seen it exactly 234987234234 times.

It's inspired some fun play-time.

this one is pretty sweet!!

the church did a really big media blitz in our area. billboards, radio, and tv

it coincided with the new mormon.org,
and featured a lot of black and white images

they featured mostly basic questions like is god real, and so forth

they were no swashbucklers, but pretty relevant i think
