Many pharma commercials leave me guessing what the stuff does. Even the commercials that tell you what disorder the drug addresses are stated in a way that only a doctor can really understand it. I'm sure the sufferers are familiar with the terminology, but the commercials don't create a memory for those of us who may develop the condition in the future.

The narrator says at the end of the commercial "We deliver memories". I find it to be a very beautiful commercial, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what it has to do with FedEx. Can you?

Are there commercials that you don't understand or don't understand what it has to do with the product?
Having never seen the ad, I can only go on what you've written, but seems pretty clear to me. Someone sent the recipient something via Fedex that reminded him/her of a long-ago wedding. Tres simple, non?

Of course there are ads which offend.
Ford had an ad for a family minivan with age of aquarius playing in the background.
the corporate use of that particular song just bugged me.

You remembered the ad and you remembered it was for FedEx
so it accomplished its purpose.

Remembering ads from younger years forever is so true.
Can anyone else sing the Ipana toothpaste song?
Know what LSMFT means?
Quote the Crest toothpaste "Statement" also on the box?
I could go on but you get the idea.

"Brusha brusha brusha with the new Ipana…"

Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco

That's it...

Apparently the stuff causes bleeding, high or low blood pressure, dizziness and fainting. Reports of death have occurred. If you experience death call your doctor right away as this can be a sign of a rare life threatening reaction.

Ask your doctor about the stuff.

Plus if you are allergic to it or its ingredient don't take it!
