it's good when the sun shines on fridays
I know, I know. It's so long. I wanted to wait and see if I had more job news before posting again. I have an interview with the board on Tuesday night. I'm a little nervous. Mr. Dolan really thinks I can handle myself, though; that I'm fully prepared to answer the questions they'll have. He really wants to hire me. And that is fabulous. It's always good when your future principal is batting for you.
On a very different note, I saw a commercial last night that just floored me. I was so impressed by the subtlety with which an honorable goal was introduced. And I was even more blown away by the fact that it's a car commercial. It is the lates commercial for Saturn--a plug for their 5 hybrid models. This post isn't about hybrid cars, however. Perhaps I'll post some thoughts about that at a later date, perhaps not. This is about something very different and surprising in that ad. The ad centers around the word "Rethink," and features a series of different photographic shots: the first is presented with the word "Rethink" superimposed on the screen; then a second, opposing, shot is shown with "Rethink" followed by whatever concept you are to rethink superimposed. For example: picture of bodybuilder, superimposed "Rethink;" picture of Lance Armstrong winning, superimposed "Rethink strength." Even were it not for the opening shot, I find the commercial very artistically interesting. And the music is good. :)
But the opening two shots make this commercial. Shot one: the right fist of a black man, each finger holding a large, gaudy ring. Shot two: the left fist of a smiling black man, the third finger holding a wedding band. "Rethink bling." Now that's a commercial. It almost made me want to buy a Saturn.
