Commercial Pressure

Typically watching commercials is a drag.  It’s the whole reason people record their shows and lament the movies they have to watch on channels that interrupt them.  I have to admit, I grew up without cable, and didn’t really experience it in all its glory until a few years ago, so I’ve watched plenty of commercials in my time.  Every once in a while, there’s a commercial out there that makes you stop and watch.  Sometimes it makes you laugh, sometimes it makes you think, and sometimes they even make you cry.  I don’t know if I’ve ever been as happy to see a commercial as I was to see this one.  You can read all about it here, and you can watch it here.  The commercial was created to put pressure on the Supreme Court to access at least one of the five different cases they have sitting in their docket currently.  The author cites that most people expect the Supreme Court to use this term to at least begin one of these cases (and maybe even legalize gay marriage across the country)!  This is great news for anyone who believes in basic human rights.
