My commercial!

You know what a fan I am of the commercial that stays with you for years (Tarnex anyone?).  Well, I hope my commercial for Packit has some lasting power.  Packit was invented by two single moms and they are hoping to go big time with their invention by making a direct marketing commercial.  They asked me to be the spokesperson.

Here is the commercial.

In a nutshell, it’s a lunch bag that keeps food cold for 10 hours and collapses in your freezer when you aren’t using it.  I do put yogurt smoothies in Vivien’s bag now that she has one  ( she loves the pink polka dot one).  My mom takes her lunch to work in the red one.  She eats very healthy so taking her own food to work is a good fit for her.

Check it out and Pack it!

( by the way I got a flat fee for the commercial. If they sell one or one million I won’t get anymore, but I like the gals that created it and I like the product)

Why I Love Advertising

Hey, we are bombarded with it, right? Sometimes you have to succumb. I know few people who have never ordered something off TV or QVC. As a kid, I ordered the Liberace Big Note Song Book and learned to play “Deck the Halls.”

I do try to shield Vivien from it on TV and radio, picking channels that have very little and muting it when ads come on. Even though she says, “What happened, Mommy?”

Well, here is how I haven’t shielded myself, and the funny thing? I still haven’t eaten one Klondike bar.
