The commercial starts zoomed out from the planet earth. Sounds of media and radio spout relevant news of our current political and economic turmoil.

*music starts to play, consisting of upbeat, technical bass-like tones*

A filtered satellite stream begins zooming into Capitol Hill Washington with media feeds growing louder into pure crowd-like chatter. Then with a flash-of-light it shows our politicians looking to Obama with his smug-like glaze. Then another flash and with a black, captivating background:

APATHY

Then another flash showing SWAT teams, police vehicles and violence in the streets. Then it transitions to an image of IMF leaders, Ben Bernanke and with newspaper headlines flowing transparently throughout.

Then with a similar background as apathy:

GREED

A feed of our US printing presses and workers stacking money. Shots of the buildings of Freddy and Fannie Mae, Bank of America; Wall Street with its stock tickers and trading pits.

Then:

CORRUPTION

Shots of Greece and protests. People getting mad with our current our system. Yells, screams and excitement.

Then a giant...

HOPE

It gradually fades away. ...and what's that? What's that shining dot in the center? It's growing larger! OH, IT'S BRIGHT! It's a... BITCOIN!

A ending drum sound, bass --whatever will bring attention-- plays.

A url to a informational Bitcoin website shows below the Bitcoin. Then the same sound.

A final flash to...

WHAT IS BITCOIN?

With the same URL at the bottom. Then cut.

How about putting it on YouTube? It's a lot cheaper, and if it goes viral it will end up on TV anyway. For free. Smiley

I think the first set of ads should have a very positive spin, let the anti-government ones come out second wave (because I'm pretty sure all the anti-government nuts are on Bitcoin, and ad would be to get the general public, no?)

general public

Everything is about to get really bad. Actually it already is. A good portion of America is jobless. They have every right to be upset and this ad can connect with that.

The general public can be and is politically interested.

Seriously, it's only going to take an easy to use smartphone app to go viral to send bitcoin skywards. As long as it checks the market, uses a barcode scanner, has a secure wallet, and is fast, we will have a useful ninja currency. Make a commo about that.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Is there any way this could be done as a public service announcement?

I disagree, I see so many people around avoiding politics like the plague.    I will say though it depends on the group, there is no one commercial that would work for all, but I would just try and hit things as big as possible.

Anyways, if you want to get very serious with your ad, might I suggest using Google TV Ads, cheaper, better targeting (might as well find the best audience for your ad if it is listed), ease of use of course  http://www.google.com/ads/tv/

Awesome, the fact that you said that makes me see this as "oh shit, this commercial really might happen"

I have never created one, but had went through their whole process and regulations as far as video, just never used it for what I needed to, but still always felt the service was awesome, and if I had extra money, I would have a commercial for my penis every week.

Be careful about using "Hope" as the main point of the commercial, it reminds me a bit much of Obama's running campaign.

Anyway, if I wrote it, it would have more humor and less fear tactics, but that's just me.

Anyway, good luck!

Atlas,

How long would the running time be? I'm just curious, because I think I could do that in a relatively short time, being familiar with nonlinear video editors and the like. Let me know, and I'll try my hand at it.

Have two concurrent stories.

1.A guy buying something with his credit card and his wife finding the statement and him ending up homeless because of it
2.He used a bitcoin to buy something and is still living with his wife and family because theres no bitcoin statement for her to find.

Another two concurrent stories:

1. A sad fellow looking at his income statement of his website sees sales (expressed in $) are down.
2. A woman (or any other demographic besides a white male) smiles while viewing her increased sales (expressed in BTC).

Another two concurrent stories:

1. Retired couple in rural Kansas gets a frantic call at 2 a.m. Sunday morning from their backpacking granddaughter and her friend visiting Kenya. They've just been robbed and need money NOW.

2. Obvious parallel when Bitcoin infrastructure is better established.

Or we could change the voice-over in this commercial from $ to BTC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0uFqsI1vy4
