Reach the masses: We need a Superbowl Commercial

Imagine reaching millions of folks at one time while they are with family and friends. A commercial about the govt stealing money and basically dissolving the constitution in front of our eyes. How do we do it and raise money to run it? Ron Paul as our spokesman??

The going rate for a super bowl ad is $2.6 million

The media

Is not allowing such ads.

We need a day

Start with one day. Global non-compliance. April 15th. Nobody buys anything. We stop being consumers for one day..

Not the superbowl.

The people who watch that spend the day drinking and eating and use
the commercial time(s) to go to the bathroom. Besides, they'd likely be too drunk to understand what they're hearing. Other shows would be better.

You do not seem to realize that many people don't care about the

game but tune in for the commercials. Call me un-American or whatever you like, I would not even WATCH the game if it weren't for the commercials -- not that I care about commercials either -- but everyone always talks about them for the next week or so after the game and I want to know what they're talking about. If someone can come up with the money, I would say have at it.

New math!

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?

Any Primetime Show

Heck we should just try to get some FoxBusiness or History Channel spots first.

wrong venue

I do not think that an expensive ad during the SB will have any effect on our cause. Money is best spent elsewhere.

Won't happen. We wanted to

Won't happen.
We wanted to do this last year. I think there were actually some serious efforts to get the commercial on the air. At the last moment, Super Bowl officials said they were not going to approve any political advertisements.

So even if we had the money.. I'm not sure we could actually get a commercial approved.

Here, see for yourself.

Advertize Locally!

Buy the local media time slots during the game...

Regarding Palin: I believe we are watching in real time the rise of the third party, which will be controlled by the powers that be from its' inception.

Next Scam: "Cash For Cash"


This year there are still nine spots available with no takers ..

to date.

But I think they want about $3 million/30 sec ad.


yeah without media help we are whistling in the wind. people

are so damn mad but feel like they have no avenue for help. everyone that i speak to from rich to poor are ticked off that bankers have received this money with no accountability. a well timed superbowl ad may brings hundreds if not thousands to this site or campaign for liberty. someone with connections needs to talk to Mr. Paul.


but I still doubt that they

but I still doubt that they would allow a political advertisement.... ESPECIALLY for Ron Paul.

I mean, what would happen if people actually find out that Ron Paul was right about anything?

I respectfully disagree ...

he puts up the $3 mil ....

I bet he could say whatever he wants for 30 seconds.

But I don't think it would be a wise use of the money.


You could stage an event

It would be cheaper - Something like a mass prank or performance art to make a statement, during the superbowl,

That's the trick!!

Remember "The Streak"? We need that kind of buzz!

Mike Lawson

All kidding aside, those big people pranks do get alot of attention. Like the 100 people who, all at the exact moment in Grand Central froze for 3 minutes, mass streakers, etc....
We must think outside the box, use creative PR tactics and generate the media buzz.
Ex: 100 streakers with a stong message written on their bodies taking the field. Crazy but intelligent tactics are needed. Well planned with committed individuals willing to execute a plan
Blogging is good, action is better. We need to moblize, organize and act with the thought process being to get more people into the fold, become aware of to what is happening and name recognition for the months ahead.

Only if it's you Rhino

I don't wish the tazing on you though. Besides, you know what happens when security gets rough at football games http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb7RgbjUzEA
I'm sure Americans are the same way.

I love that clip.

I hope those cops got the _____ knocked out of them..

My favorite part is at the end where the guy in the white shirt is running and just flies forward at the ground for no reason. He's moving left on the screen from the right

LOL ...

You put me in chute and train me ...

I am there ...

The only problem ...

They wouldn't be looking at the chute.

Mouths wide open in wonderment.


This might be difficult with security ...

But what about a base jumper ...

Not familiar with the location, hell I do not even know where it is ...

But if possible ...

A base jump would be easier to coordinate.


I LOVE it!

I wasn't kidding. I fully agree that we need to do everything that's never been tried before.

Actually, that is not a bad

Actually, that is not a bad idea. I would leave undies on, though, because it would be easier to fight an indecent exposure charge but would not reduce the impact. Somehow we also need to get in the message that the Fed is owned by European bankers. I know that is a simplified message, but most people don't know it.





This is a great idea

hit them while there listening

Great Idea

A focus group should be started right now, for next year superbowl, raising the money to have a few spots and the development of a GREAT commercial to let everyone know who we are and what we are and our goals for the country. By next year we should know where we are going as a group (GOP, Third Party etc) and let that be our launching pad to recruit and let the world know who we are. It will get millions of people's attention and must be a commercial that everyone will be talking about the next day. We can also us that commercial for advertising through out the year. A few strong money bombs and a dedicated focus group could pull it off. A few million in cost but we will achieve a lot of publicity and have the footage to use over the next four years. Plus it may be a way to grow our numbers in a short period of time. We get the exposure plus the media buzz if it is unique and eye catching. It must be a commercial that people will talk about for years.

Thoughts on this are welcomed

What a fabulous idea..

...too late to pull it off this year, though, I think...

From what I understand they haven't sold as many this year

due to the economy. I wonder if campaign for liberty has any cash?
