what comerical are you seeing?

Ok.. so I get all excited because I see the iconic Austin postcard mural and Chef Nubu and he goes to Franklins Barbque...It is an American express comercial... Then I think...Oh I bet this is a regional thing everbody else is seeing something that matches where live.

        I don't think she specifically means on the site...I see that commercial all the time, and I live in Michigan. There's also one with Sue Zemanick in Miami - they're Chase Sapphire commercials, not American Express. :) They seem to be run a LOT during food-oriented programming, but I don't think they're at all regional.

          Not sure why we'd be discussing ads on sites other than CH. But thanks for the heads up.

            Not other sites. On TV. Which :)

              Wahooty, I still don't have a clue why this has CH relevance. You're going to explain this to me, right? :)

                Well, the commercial shows a famous chef, eating famous BBQ in Austin. The Miami one also has a lot of slow-mo action shots of delicious-looking food. I actually think GOTW's question about whether these commercials are regional was an interesting's pretty clear they aren't regional to those of us who don't live anywhere near Austin, but I might wonder if I always saw one highlighting Michigan delights with a chef from, say, San Francisco. A commercial for a non-food product that is clearly meant to appeal to food-oriented people seems like a reasonable topic for a "Food Media and News" board to me, but to each their own.

                1. re: Wahooty

                  I agree. We discuss commercials on this board all the time. I wonder why @c oliver thinks this post is something different?

          2. re: Wahooty

            I see both of those Chase Sapphire ads as well; I live in metro NYC. I've always thought that some ads you see are national (they go with the show, no matter where you are) and some local (clearly the ones with terrible production values by the car dealership 5 miles away)

            1. re: DGresh

              You can always tell the local "spot" commericals, there's a little beeping sound before they start. The first ones are always the network's.

          3. I see it here in Colorado.
