    I wonder why he pointed out that they are free? Have some JWs complained at the idea of paying for advertisments?

    Maybe they could show Serena doing a photo shoot and then play 5 seond clips of Prince and Michael, all the while presenting subliminal messages across the bottom of the screen like "The good life - serve Jehovah", or "We're well rounded folks, we love our kids" , or "Not everyone is too busy preaching, right Serena, you tell them Michael." Then again, maybe Ted could expound on "keeping the congregation clean and you'll have no worries when you bring your children to our Halls..."

    Maybe they should try one with Claymation, like that old California Raisins commercial. Yeah, that would work!

    Yeah! I wanna see the California Raisins singing "Let's Watch How We Walk" Or how about a JW Max Headroom commercial? "Hey there all you Thir-Thir-Thir-Thirsty ones, Come and drink life's Wa-wa-wa-water fr-fr-free"

    Right after the molestation issue started to get publicity on the internet they ran an ad showing a little girl on a chat-line - on the other end was an obvious deviate pretending to be a young friend - then the parents saw what was happening and 'saved' the child from serious problems. The subliminal was - Look we are doing our part to protect children, it is safe among Jehovah's witnesses. Come join us. - what they didn't say was 'in the pedophile paradise we have created' with our 1300 BC thinking of community.

    Not lately. Did watch a couple of commercials a while back. The commercials were very well made and quite deceiving, nice bait.
