Redskins: "No looking back"
Hey, it's another Redskins ad for premium seats!
Look, these ads are very well produced and executed, use a nice mix of narration and player quotes, and make my heart race a little bit. Even if we're not used to seeing Redskins ads like this, I enjoy them immensely. Just a few quick questions about this one.
1) The opening shot, with a player looking at a monsoon gushing over a football field and the ominous words "no more looking back!" voiced by the narrator? That means fans shouldn't look back on the disaster that was 2009, right? But fans are still allowed to look back on all the nostalgia stuff that the Redskins are selling, including the Future Is Now slogan, the alumni reunions and the R logo in these R You In ads, right? That sort of looking back is still cool? Because I love that sort of looking back.
2) When Mike Shanahan opens his mouth and the soundtrack roars at about the 0:06 mark, is that supposed to be him roaring? I like to imagine he roars like that. Even at home. When he's eating steak. "Look, a steak! Roooooaaaaaaarrrrrrggggggh!" Or even a strawberry smoothie. "I'm going to drink you! Roooooaaaaaaarrrrggggghhhhh!" No more looking back, smoothie. It's our time.
3) "Time to stop talking. And start playing," is sort of the money line here. And what this actually means is "time to stop watching baseball and other girlie sports and time to start buying Redskins premium seats," correct? Because these aren't actually ads for Redskins football, but for premium seats to Redskins football, if I'm not mistaken.
Either way, I can't wait for the next one.
