Let’s Solve This!

Finally, advertising that makes sense from ExxonMobil!
by Charlie Leck

Those who know me won’t be surprised that I was glued to the TV on Sunday afternoon to watch the playing of the final round of golf at The Masters. It was a rewarding afternoon. The golf was great, but so were many of the commercials. (The Masters insists on 55 minutes of live golf for every hour telecast and, therefore, the commercials must be zingers!)

ExxonMobil ads are stunners!
This is no joke! I mean it. ExonMobil should get Emmys for these commercials and all of America should take them seriously. I applaud the big company (one of America’s very largest) for running these ads.

For example, here’ one of them… it’s called Let’s Solve This!… (watch the commercial here)…

The commercial tells us that the U.S. is on the list of countries from around the world with the best math scores – in 25th place. Then ExxonMobil implores us to raise academic standards around the nation and get back to the head of the class!

Wow! That’s good. Doing so will, however, cost money at a time when soft politicians are set against spending. Exxon-Mobile knows we have to invest huge amounts of money to get better results in the classroom around the nation. Are they willing to lean on conservative politicians to help our teachers and schools do a better job?

Thanking our Teachers!
Another commercial is called Thanking Our Teachers. ExxonMobile says…

Teaching is the most important profession that we have!
A teacher can make a huge difference in a child’s life!

Thanks ExxonMobil. Now, get on these politicians for allowing America’s educational foundation to crumble. Tell them the people want to rebuild it and make America number one in education all around the world.

If you want to watch a whole bunch of ExxonMobil ads on this very same theme, go here!
