Thanks for starting this thread. I'd thought of starting one after seeing it too. I first saw the ad on Saturday Night Live a week ago. Did they play it again last night? It featured a young boy -- dreamy kind of -- looking at a reflection in a storefront window and seeing an Airstream pass by -- he was most impressed too! Looked about like a 28' or 31'. Think I still have it on VCR tape (eh buddy? ya gotta speak into the cone!) so I can't translate it into computer pichers very easily...

Yes, it was on Saturday Night Live again last night. I saw it once during the 6 PM news as well which leaves me to believe it might just be targeted to certain markets. I doubt it would be playing in New York.

It's definitely an ad with high production values. It grabs you from across the room, and you can't take your eyes off it.

The bison herd running in front of Devil's Tower is the clincher.

Coincidence? I don't think so ~

Probably one reason the WY tourism ad features an Airstream is the the Governor (Dave Freudenthal) owns one! The mayor of Laramie also has one, actually two - a new bunkhouse & a '65 Caravel and has been known to frequent the RMVAC rally.
