Playmobil Traveler’s Insurance ad and “Morning Driving”

February 26, 2011 2 comments

Have you ever seen this ad?

It featured a Playmobil family living in a dollhouse. The little girl rearranged the house, throwing the family into turmoil; even literally, when the father fell out of the house. Then it tells us that this is an ad for Travelers Insurance.

When I first watched it, I was disturbed, because I thought that the father Playmobil figure “died” when he fell out of the house. However, in the end, he was OK.

I now think this ad to be hilarious, in part because the background music reminds me of the “Morning Driving” radio song that advertised the Jesse and Gene show. You can hear it here.

Come to think of it, I miss hearing Jesse and Gene so much that I forgot what they sounded like. Fortunately, while searching for “Jesse and Gene” for this post, I found their website: http://www.jesseandgene.com

It brings back memories, and I have Traveler’s Insurance to thank for that! I’m already dreaming up ways to incorporate that music into another ad, this time, with boy’s toys. I wonder if Traveler’s offers veteran’s insurance; then they could use G.I. Joes in their ads. And what about using Hot Wheels for auto insurance? Hmm….

Edit: It appears that the video was removed by YouTube, due to copyright infringement. Don’t worry; it wasn’t one of MY videos!

Doctors accused of drugging and sexually assaulting woman – thestar.com

I came across a disturbing article about two bad doctors here:

Doctors accused of drugging and sexually assaulting woman – thestar.com.

Seriously, they’re DOCTORS, so they should know better than to act like monsters. I have to know why they would do such a thing, especially when things like this go public and get them in a lot of hot water.

I hope that the College of Physicians and Surgeons throws the book at doctors like them. They should not let the few bad apples out there spoil the crop. I know that there are a lot of good doctors out there, and what these two did should not shake, let alone shatter, our good faith in medicine. After all, without the works of good doctors and nurses, we’d probably be dead by now.
