You guys are killing me. Yet another favorite of mine. The Lotus commercials are right up there on my top 10 list. I also adore the Denis Leary Capitalism/Technology ads from Lotus.

Specifically, The "I am" commercials caused me a bit of trouble. It took nearly two weeks to get someone to send me the real from IBM. It should be here in short order, however, Anyone intersted in downloading the spot for personal use only, is welcome to contact me. The R5 site does not carry the ad, and says they have no plans to put it up due to the constant complaints from DC Comics fans.

If you are intersted in the Leary Lotus Ads you can find them at:


There are tons, the Capitalism and People's Party are my favorites. Oh yeah, these and the "I am" spots were created by Ogilvy and Mather World Wide!
