‘SimpliSafe’ ‘Home Sweet Home’ TV Commercial (October 2018) — Another Catchy Ad Like ‘Tortoise & The Hare’.
So, from what I can see it is a background guitar track to the spoken narrative. But, WHAT guitar work? Paul Simon?
I checked, on YouTube, songs called “Home Sweet Home“. Don’t think the music is from any of them.
Yes, I checked. I cannot, as yet, locate the guitarist. But, this one might be easier than ‘Tortoise and the Hare‘. One of YOU will know.
Just wanted to share and get your input.
I had an e-mail this morning from a reader of this blog opining that it maybe Jack Williams and that the ‘tortoise and the hare’ sounds like Jack Williams’ “Hand Me Down” (below).
I was NOT familiar with Jack Williams. I looked him up and listened to “Hand Me Down” on YouTube. Possible, BUT not 100% convinced.
YouTube of Jack Williams’ “Hand Me Down”.
Somebody else had suggested Paul Simon, but I am sure that that is a non-starter.
I think my first choice, British Johnny Flynn, is still a good bet.
IF you KNOW PLEASE do share. Thanks.

But, as a father of a 12-year old daughter I am not happy to have a TV commercial, on Cable News Channels like CNN, MSNBC & CNBC, that runs during the DAY that openly mentions INTERCOURSE. That is not right. How is that acceptable and permissible in a country that does not permit any nudity on broadcast TV. So no nudity, even at 11pm, BUT it is OK to say ‘intercourse’ at 8:12am in the morning. I am not amused or pleased.
The ‘curved below the belt‘ commercial was not offensive. Just a tad funny.
But, this commercial is BELOW THE BELT.
Do YOU agree?
But, the Austrian Tourist Board using his nudes to promote travel to Austria and that is not going down well in certain puritanical quarters.
While it would be crass to call his nudes controversial, they sure are provocative — and that is both good and bad. They definitely attract attention, which is beneficial but it also means that some folks will take umbrage to them.
That the Austrians got the necessary permissions and permits from NYC is a miracle in its own right. Even if they are now forced to take the ads. down, Austria shure would have got their monies worth, if not more from the added publicity they managed to garner. It is very possible that they actually bargained that they might be able to provoke a controversy and with that lost of media coverage. Well they succeeded.

I am NOT easily shocked, but I thought this was below the belt. Ouch!
Nope. Don’t have it — or NOT as yet. But given how I am falling apart this may also be in my future — though I hope not. I have enough problems, thank you.
Yes, I have heard of it and KNEW at once what the commercial was going to be when I saw “curved below the belt“.
When are we going to draw the line. The ED ads were bad enough. But, now this.
Very clever to have it on CNBC. Perfect demographics. And yes, it is good to get the word out that there is treatment for this condition.
It is just a tad jarring to see IT on TV.
But, c’est la vie. Next time I will be ready and will not be shocked.

Last year’s Ad. Now a CLASSIC.
Ahhh! This one is even MORE poignant. Having the BOAC VC-10 makes it ultra-special for I. It was the FIRST jet that I saw, as a child, in the 1950s, growing up in Ceylon. My adoptive father took a trip on one. I still can see the VC-10 taking off.
I was so enamored with BOAC — British Overseas Airways Corporation — which served the non-European countries, like Ceylon. And then there was BEA — British European Airways. They merged to become today’s BA.
This is brilliant. Thank
