Hi everyone. This is my first post although I have been reading on this board for over a year now. I just had to post because I saw the most unbelievable thing the other night - a commercial for Jehovah's Witnesses. A couple nights ago I couldn't sleep and I turned on the tv. This commercial comes on and it's a teenage girl chatting with a guy on the internet. They're talking about how they miss each other and are sending lovey-dovey messages to each other. Then it shows the guy on the other end of the conversation - mid-forties, fat, balding, smoking a cigarette, drink in hand, etc. Then the commercial flashes to the same girl spending time with her family and the voice over says something about monitoring your children and how spending time with the family is important. Mind you, I'm not really paying too much attention considering the fact that it is 2:00 in the morning. The thing that caught me by surprise was the ending. They were showing the family together and then on the bottom of the screen it says "___" Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses and a phone number. It flashed by so fast that I didn't get a chance to see what congregation it was. Needless to say I was floored. Don't get me wrong, I had no problem with the message at all, but I just never expected to see a commercial sponsored by the witnesses. Has anybody else seen this commercial or anything similar? Maybe this is a new way to spread the good news without having to knock on doors.
Sorry if this has been discussed before. I tried to do a search for it and came up with an error message.
