Obviously, given our finances, we won't be sponsoring a Super Bowl ad this year. The reports are that it will cost $2.5 million for a 30-second spot, this wouldn't be a wise thing to do given our deficits.
But let's lay that aside and pretend you and I are running the ad campaign and we have 30 seconds to turn the Postal Service's image and finances around. What should it be? Should we use Al the Carrier? Should we bring back Steve Miller or Carly Simon to sing for us? Should we find employees who could plead our case before America? Should we use babies or dogs or frogs?
What are your thoughts? If you would have a 30-second commercial, what would it look like? Don't wait too long! The big game is Feb. 6th! Leave your comments and suggestions here.
The best suggestion will get a prime-time mention right here at Your Postal Blog.
For more information, here's a chart (unfortunately, a few years old) of 40 years of Super Bowl ad prices.
