Are you allowed to just climb over walls like that?
I was just thinking, "That kind of lateral thinking is really going to piss off your CO."
The way the marine just gets struck down by lightning at the end of all of these seems rather anticlimactic.
Remember when our recruiting propaganda could afford to be ineffective but remarkably entertaining?
Say whatever you want, these were a million times more appealing than the army's "You've only got supplies for three days" Rambo bullshit.
They should have played the Zelda thing-get music when he grabbed the sword.
I dunno man, I'd realy want to join after seeing the scout ad where it sounded like your superiors forgot about you several days past your resupply/evac date.
The ironic thing here is that none of the crap these guys go through in these ads are going to prepare them for actual real-life combat.
That's because, according to these commercials, being a marine seems to be about nothing but bragging rights.
So was this commercial going for the D&D/Indiana Jones fan demographic? Because I doubt they could pass the physical...
I liked the Marine's dance in the quicksand.
But would the King Arthur, Indiana Jones Hybrid be English and a Professor!
This just made me think of the two guys I saw at Fort Benning who'd had their faces burnt off by IEDs.
Mind you, at least in Iraq we didn't have to fight any knights.
