Title: Mister Rogers in a COMMERCIAL!
Post by: Johnny Striped Tiger on October 24, 2018, 06:05:47 PM
Premiering just last night, the dulcet tones of Fred Rogers' soothing voice emanated from my television set, singing "Did You Know" in an ad for the Google Pixel 3.

Now, we all know how Fred felt about commercials, so I have mixed feelings about it.

Nevertheless, it certainly brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.

Well, because the theme of the commercial was about curiosity, I think Fred Rogers would have approved of this commercial. The Fred Rogers Company gave Google their blessing and permission to use the song Did You Know? for the commercial. Fred Rogers encouraged wonder and marvel in Children, so this is good.
