The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation running first Super Bowl ad
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is running its first-ever Super Bowl ad this Sunday.
The commercial, narrated by former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw, is part of Colonial Williamsburg’s campaign to challenge Americans to put today’s news into historical context if they want to understand the issues facing the United States in the 21st century.
The ad features emotional images of presidents, innovators, accomplishments and seminal events, as well as a thought-provoking depiction of the World Trade Center rising from the ashes of Ground Zero.
Colonial Williamsburg is the nation’s largest living-history museum. Its 300 acres include nearly 600 Revolutionary-era buildings, art museums and hotels.
The ad will be broadcast in the New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. markets on CBS during the Super Bowl.
It was produced by Texas-based Firehouse ad agency.
