The Bahamas wins honors for best superbowl commercial of 2013

The journey begins...

The journey begins…

On the most celebrated Sunday in the sports calendar, many of  us who live in the Western world were

glued to our televisions.

As we stuffed our face with gut busting treats and screamed violently

at the screen;  we watched football.

Which is much different than what our friends around the world call futbol,
more favorably known in the US as soccer.

As the noise ensued at the rowdiest Superbowl party I had ever attended,

a hush suddenly fell across the room.

Eager to catch a glimpse of the action,

I nudged my way pass two beer drinking Neanderthals and their goddess-like companions

and i too was instantly mesmerized by seven shades of blue.

Mermaids do exist

As the  blue of the sky melted into the blue  of the waters,  a mermaid appeared  and broke ground for the first time.

But  as easily as the mermaid appeared, another common face took its place in the form of a

carefree traveler as he too sailed across the mesmerizing pool of tranquil waters.

Then suddenly without warning, as if prompted by some unseen magical force; 

he too plunged into the deep without warning.

Spoiler Alert

It didn’t end there, but I don’t want to ruin it for you.

By far this was the best Super-Bowl commercial I had ever seen.

It had intrigue, beauty and it captivated any viewer brave enough to keep their eyes glued to the screen.

Unfortunately for those living on the east coast, west coast and other parts of the world

besides those in the sunny states of Florida and the Islands of the Bahamas you

didn’t get a chance to see it.

I called up a buddy in Texas, and nope no luck there either.

So here it is, take a look and you’ll see why I’m so stoked.

Cast your vote and leave it in the comments.

I want to know if your mesmerized…

  1. Fabian, what a beautifully descriptive post! I smiled when I first read this because I shared a similar experience: at a bar in the out islands when the commercial came on . . . crowd mesmerized . . . upon conclusion, the whole place burst into applause and yells of pride. A wonderful moment! Thanks for commenting on my blog post about it, too. http://choosingthebetterlife.com/2013/02/mail-boat.html Cheers to the Bahamas!
