Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
Two provocative new animated television commercials developed by Swiss America Trading Corp., a national investment firm, will begin airing nationally on DISH and DirecTV satellite networks today, despite attempts by major broadcast and cable networks to block them from the public airwaves.
The first commercial, titled “PAT BOONE DEFLATES THE INFLATOCRACY,” features Boone challenging Bernanke and Obama as they unleash their “2012 Stimulus Plan” by bombing New York City with armloads of $100 bills from a hot air balloon over Central Park.
The second ad, “WHAT'S REALLY INSIDE FORT KNOX,” humorously asks why the U.S. Government and Federal Reserve have for 40 years refused congressional and other requests for an independent audit of the contents of America's national gold repository.
Major broadcast and cable TV networks have refused to air these ads because of their purported “political” content. Google TV has broken this censorship of the ads by the old establishment media, making it possible for DISH and DirecTV to begin airing the ads today.
The official response from major television networks stated that commercials with any political message are: "something we try to avoid" or they "do not meet our standards on public symbols."
The ads feature animated characters of President Barack Obama, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and entertainer /activist Pat Boone. The animation is by award-winning filmmaker Ray Griggs.
Swiss America Chairman Craig Smith told WND.com last week that the intent of the ads was not to make any political statement. The goal, he said, was to take what we thought was a humorous approach to a timely, important and widely-misunderstood economic topic in order to advertise our company and promote our recently-published book.”
“These commercials are intended to be an entertaining means of communicating why our present economic policies are destined to fail,” says Smith, co-author of THE INFLATION DECEPTION: Six Ways Government Tricks Us...and Seven Ways to Stop It! The book includes a Foreword by Pat Boone. The ads offer viewers a free, postpaid copy of this 272-page book that retails for $19.95 in bookstores nationwide.
These new animated commercials represent a collaboration between RG Entertainment Ltd., creators of the highly-acclaimed 2010 documentary “I WANT YOUR MONEY,” and Mr. Smith's and Dr. Ponte's book publisher, Idea Factory Press.
“Our goal is to present fresh, engaging ways to explain the urgent need for Americans to shrink the Federal Government's size and debt, and to restore both a personal and national gold standard,” says David Bradshaw of Idea Factory Press.
Both TV commercials are available for viewing online or on Swiss America's new iPad application “The Gold Standard,” which launched last week at the iTunes App Store. This App offers real-time precious metals price quotes as well as a wide range of built-in multimedia educational resources. The App is free.
