The setting for my book “We Are Different Now” appeared in the Kia Sorento ad, featuring Pierce Brosnan, during the 2015 Super Bowl. When the ad gets to the driving in the snow scenes, the first shots are right at the exact place where my grandson, Pete, fell to his death at the age of 21 and became the inspiration for me to write my book. The same spot appears again when he is driving towards the mountain cabin and you see a small avalanche to the right of the screen.
Even though this spectacular place holds a lot of sadness for me, it is incredibly beautiful at any time of the year. Since this ad was shot from the air, it gives an astounding perspective that we could never capture with our feet planted firmly on the ground. I so wanted to include a still shot someone took from the ad in this article, but I realize that Kia, Pierce Brosnan and the Lord knows who else, own the copyright and I’m not about to infringe upon it. You can find the ad on YouTube by searching for the Kia Sorento Super Bowl Ad Featuring Pierce Brosnan. It’s worth the peek.
I know that Pete would have one of his beautiful smiles on his face to know that his memorial site made the 2015 Super Bowl ads. That fact might just be a little nudge to think of him and remember his love of football.
Thanks for stopping by at my blog and I hope you’ll let me know that you were here.
