Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

I Know Of What I Speak. As You Read This Blog Posting Remember My Credentials. I Was Employed In The Automotive Industry For More Than 30 Years.

BCN decided my actual title to this blog was too long (limited to 150 characters) so I had to shorten it (above) but I am putting the full title right here (below)...

I Know Of What I Speak. As You Read This Blog Posting Remember My Credentials. I Was Employed In The Automotive Industry For More Than 30 Years, And During That Time, I Rose to The Height Of A Mediocre Career.

Automotive Commercials often show their cars driving through the downtown business districts of large cities while the streets are devoid of other cars.

You have probably never thought much about this happening but I notice it every time I watch an Automotive Commercial because I am a Highly Trained Mediocre Automotive Retiree.

The Coronavirus is going to make the filming of Automotive Commercials Easier and Less Expensive…

  • To film a Commercial the Automotive Companies have found it necessary to pay for extended periods of time to have the entire Commercial Film Crew waiting on side streets for the main streets to be empty of cars.
  • Usually they have to stay there waiting for weeks before the Main Street becomes empty and, when it does, they have to run out of the side street and set up all their equipment and film the commercial before cars start appearing again.
  • More often than not, they get up to the very end of the commercial only to see the whole thing ruined by a vehicle that drove into the middle of all of what they were doing.
  • One time I saw a bunch of clowns appear. They were the beginning of the Barnum and Bailey Circus Parade.

In life we should appreciate the positive things that come our way while they are coming our way. Appreciate this…

Now all of this Time, Money and Effort will not be wasted because the Coronavirus has made all of the Downtown Streets in the Good Ole USofA empty and available for the filming of Automotive Commercials.

Several years ago there was a technique used in Automotive Commercials that really confused me. The cars were shown Sliding Sideways on Ice Covered Lakes. I never understood why a person would be tempted to get rid of their perfectly good car that was very practiced at driving straight down a road and replace it with a car that Slid Sideways on a Frozen Lake.

This lack of understanding of the ever evolving Automotive Industry was probably why the Automotive Gods whispered into my confused ears, “Fella, maybe you ought to retire”.

************

Another interesting thing (probably only interesting to Fella) about Automotive Commercials is the fact that many of them are now being filmed with the Cars Being Driven on Bridges.

Have you noticed that, for about the last year or so, many Automotive Commercials are being filmed with the cars driving on bridges? If you have not noticed, you will now start noticing because I have just brought it to your attention.

However, there is a Coronavirus Problem obstructing the filming of Automotive Commercials on Bridges. Many of our bridges coming out of our Big Cities are too crowded to allow for Automotive Commercial Filming. This is especially true of the bridges leading out of New York City.

Would I kid u?
