    This commercial is very, very simple. It won an ADDY plus an ADDY Judges Choice Award.

     

    I like it because:

     

    1, I wrote the spot.

    2. I played and recorded the background music.

    3. My son did the voiceover for the very last line.

    Will always be a favorite of mine. Always. :)

    Very nice!  Good copy, great read, and the coin(s) reinforce the message. I'd like to have heard a call to action at the end ("For more information, visit JA.org."), but even without it someone interested in learning more could do as I did and Google "junior achievement" to obtain information.   Well done!

    Psssssst. Hey, Rod. Thank you for listening. (whispering) Don't let anybody know this....but, back in the day when I won ADDYS for that spot...there was no internet. In fact, I digitized this from (gulp) a cassette tape. Ok, it was a high grade, audiophile TDK metal tape!

     

    The ad STILL holds up in 2012! LOL ;)
