Im sure Airstream goes around to all the pill pushers and asks to be in a commercial

But it does seem theyre in a lot more commercials these days

Purpose-driven subliminal seduction?

Advertisers use red to get our attention. Red in the context of health also means critical. Blood. gore. Oh my gosh. We may die!

So, Jim starts taking Xarelto and his vehicle magically turns white. According to the Colour Psychology Wheel, white is the colour of "protection and encouragement, offering a sense of peace and calm, comfort and hope, helping to alleviate emotional upsets."

Or....maybe I just think too much (it was a bon fide error in continuity).....and need a pill to turn it down....a bit.

Being a pharmacist I usually notice these adds, however, this one I have not seen. Surprised Pharmgeek hasn't chimed in.

Eliquis is one I have seen quite frequently. No airstream in that one, though!

cptkel...I did chime in on this question in another thread

If you suffer from atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, or some form of clotting disorder....please talk to your doctor about taking some form of approved anticoagulant if you want to make it intact and above ground to your next aistream rally.

I am still a bit squeamish about the news ones on the market...they look promising...but what can and often does happen with repeated research, the initial findings may be a bit more robust than when conducted by third parties...

I am hoping things pan out well for these news "direct thrombin inhibitors"....easier for 'streamers and all other folks to travel for months without all the frequent mandatory monitoring....and you can enjoy that big serving of collard greens around the campfire.

Thanks for posting the link. My mom just told me about the ad, so I had to search for it. Fantastic!

Ah, the benefits of free enterprise.

The hundreds of thousands spent on this ad- including the Airstream rental- help to inflate the cost of the drug to the end user.

Americans already pay the highest cost for drugs in the industrialized world.

Certainly a problem with the drug lobby.

But, it also could be interpreted as the free market economy of the US pays for the research and development of new drugs, while the rest of the world enjoys what America pays for.

Or in the case of China, Mexico, and others, makes cheap knock-off copies that are placebos at best, poisons at worst, and sells them to unsuspecting folks looking for the expensive drugs at cheap prices.

+1 on the United States paying for the majority of R&D in the medical field - whether it's medication or medical equipment. There are several studies available via the internet that indicate the U.S. basically subsidizes much of the medical industry around the world. There are many reasons for the problem and I suspect TV commercials are relatively low on the list.

Back to the original post - I still get a kick out of seeing the commercial. I think it's interesting to see how the film technique make the inside of an RV look so large.

I just saw the commercial for the first time. What is the tow vehicle? Looks like maybe a Ford Edge or something similar. The tow vehicle is maroon throughout most of the commercial, but is white in the last shot.

We bought our Airstream because of that commercial. No kidding.

Backstory is that we'd started studying the Bambi a year ago after a two-week journey with our R-Pod that culminated in a long rainy drive from west TX...complete with leaking slideout and water lines under the faucet, both newly discovered on this trip.

Let me tell you, it's infuriating having to mitigate leaks before setting up camp after an exhausting day's drive. We vowed to get an Airstream as soon as we could get our finances in order, but knowing it would be awhile yet.

Then wife saw the commercial early last month. She recorded it and we must've watched it half a dozen times that night. We realized that now, a year after the rainy R-Pod trip, we could do it. The commercial was the key motivator to pull the trigger. On 12/19/13, we became proud owners on a new Bambi 16. And we're lovin' every minute of it. Thanks to Xarelto!
