WWJD??

In the 90s the slogan WWJD was circulating all over the globe... parents used it to teach lessons to their kids; church groups used it to guilt remind its teens about making good choices; even friends used it to help each other remember to stop and think before giving into some kind of peer pressure. We had t-shirts, bumper stickers, and of course, bracelets. 


And whether you are a Christian or not, the concept behind it really is a good one. We all say we are good people. We all say that in the face of pressure or crisis, we would keep our heads about us and do the right thing..... Right?


But really, when hard choices confront us, do we always STAND and do the right thing? Or does fear take over? Fear of the unknown.... fear of the uncertainty....or even fear of the multiple tattoos! YES, you read correctly. So in the face of a.... sticky? uncomfortable? less than optimal? situation, WWYD??


This commercial came out in DK a couple of months ago and we have passed it around to our friends and family, but every time I see it, it reminds me of the lesson (and no, the lesson is NOT about "how to get a beer") :-) Enjoy....

Oh, I love this ad! It just goes to show that we shouldn't let our own preconceptions and prejudices rule our lives!

If WWJD went around the globe it missed my Lutheran cathedral in San Francisco. Took me the longest time to figure out what those letters stood for. The Carlsberg ad is sheer genius.
