Official Olympics sponsor Visa announced yesterday on Twitter that the Americans won their first gold medal at the Olympics ... let the games begin!
Almost in response to that, however, we have a Chevrolet commercial that debuted during the Opening Ceremony, showing the diverse landscape of our American culture and families, including gay people. Watch it here.
Or this spot from Ameritrade, with storytelling that any parent can relate to, and getting to the real meaning behind the Olympics for the athletes and their families alike.
So sure, there's lots of drama and we can't ignore the issues surfacing before, during, and after the games. But let's also remember the athletes and their families who have worked their entire lives for this moment. I salute them.
What's your experience? JIM.
