    UL 1984, 1999 . . . . The official GET RID OF THE UL "THIS IS OUR TIME" COMMERCIAL

    PLEASE!! This is the most embarrassing and childish commercial i've ever seen. Are we selling a junior high prep school or a University? This is the second year for this commercial and it needs to be the last. A new commercial needs to be done quickly before the bowl game. Can't be too hard to have a grown up commercial done in short time.

    did you see the one lsu has been playing? it looks like they trying to sell a peewee football game, ours may not be great but lsus makes ours look super professional

    not saying we should settle, because other schools have much better commercials

    i seriously thought the lsu one was a joke when i saw it, looked like a lame frat party in front of a building, somebody in a tiger suit, just so elementary school pep rallyish to me

    Basically it's " We've got football, btw did you hear? We have SEC football. Degrees? Oh yeah there those too."

    I like the commercial. I think it shows our University in a very positive way.

    Big Data" is an industry term in IT. This is what they are referring to, I believe:

    Would be nice to show 3D virtual animations when pointing out the LITE center...would be good to say something about the robotics achievements, engineering, nursing, business, computer science (besides "big data") while they're at it. I guess I'm in the minority, I just don't like it and it looks childish for a school that is trying to attract students from all over the country. Doesn't speak to me, but I'm a 51 year old fart I guess.

    This university is capable of putting out a much more professional product in this. I never liked this commercial at all.

    I agree, I want something more serious as well. It's very whimsical. But hey maybe the focus groups know something we don't???

    does "research for a reason" mean something? seriously? who researches things "for the ____ of it". i get the young theme though it is aimed at 17-18 year olds shopping schools

    Either way the commercial is from 2012 that alone is reason for a new one.

    I was wondering about that. I guess as an ancient beast, I'm thinking the commercials should advertise a solid academic institution, to make potential students and parents think well of their investment. These commercials center around, "You'll have a feel good experience at this diverse university.". It must be that as you're competing for the students we consider at-large, it's important to make them feel like it's a low pressure chummy social club... where they could end up with a degree.

    Yeah, there's no 'nerds' shown in the commercial. We need the nerd element thrown in there, but instead of the traditional "showing dudes in lab coats with glasses etc, we show goPro video of the Mech Eng Baja team, the CAPE satellite, etc. Action shots...

    I agree. Are we going for quantity only? Or are we after some quality? But in reality, a smart student destined for engineering, isn't going to be reached in any of these commercials. I think these commercials are wide nets thrown to get the "I can't wait to go to college and have fun" student to sign on with UL. They aren't done to make an alumni stoked over the great accomplishments of his/her alma mater.
