Read: Last week, the Hartford Courant posted an editorial which pointed out some issues with the new UConn advertisements played during football television breaks:
The ad consists almost entirely of inanimate objects being painted blue while music plays. Incomprehensibly, one of these objects is the Golden Gate Bridge.
Perhaps you will be surprised to learn that the Golden Gate Bridge is not located in our fair state, but in California, 3,000 miles away.
Read: A couple months ago, one of the Daily Campus’ sports columnists wrote:
The Golden Gate Bridge is not in Connecticut. It is 3,000 miles away. I have been to San Francisco, and if you asked people on the street what UConn was, half of them would probably answer with a territory in Canada.
Background: The commercial does briefly highlight Horsebarn Hill and Wilbur Cross, the old library. But it also features a woman carrying a surfboard, which is not exactly a Connecticut image.
For the record, I’m seriously thinking of getting a UConn license plate.
