Y2K TV Commercial-Imus in the Morning

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

We just saw a commercial about Y2K. It aired several times before 6:30a on MSNBC on the Imus in the Morning. The commercial showed a city with the lights going out, an airplane slowly leaving the sky, banks with no money, no water, and no electricity. We were told to call 1 800 RED ALERT to attend a seminar. I did not call to see what they were offering or trying to sell.

People are becoming aware. I have noticed that there are a lot more people on this forum then just 3 weeks ago. Does anyone keep a tally?

Cory posted a ref to this RED ALERT thing asking what it was. Maybe one of us should find out? cr

The ad has been running for 2 weeks - as a GI I don't have the energy to get ripped-off. They take 4 types of credit cards apparently:)

This forum will be toast soon as people wake up - you're right Linda:)

I haven't seen the RED ALERT commercial here in L.A. yet. It may have run and I just have missed it. However, there are other commercials running offering financial information, etc.

I've noticed a big increase in the forum too. Seemed like right after the 60 Minutes story. Can you imagine how many people are lurking without posting? Awareness has taken a giant leap.

I see a real increase in national newsmedia awareness. It appears to be running at about 50% "Happy face -- no problem" articles and 50% "Wake up -- big problem here" investigative journalism.

The more we encourge "them" to dig, the better off we all will be.

Someone saw that and reviewed it slightly on another thread. Personal info was required to get past the operator (if I remember correctly). My mom saw the same ad. I told her it sounded like a money-grabber. Let us know if anyone follows up.
