Stuart Snodgrass-One Bad Dude
Do you know the name Stuart Snodgrass? Probably not. Mainly because he’s most likely a fictional character, and secondly because I wouldn’t know the name, either, if it weren’t for one of the most touching adverts; one I just heard for the Make A Wish Foundation.
In this commercial(which I really hope you’ll get to hear yourself), Stuart Snodgrass is a normal school teacher…who becomes a bad guy. See, a little boy with a terminal disease has the wish to become a superhero.
I guess at this time I should inform you what the Make A Wish Foundation is all about. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few decades, the Make A Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening diseases. Families of these children are usually stretched thin due to medical bills, so Make A Wish steps in, asks the child what he/she would wish for, then grants that wish. Often, it’s a trip to DisneyWorld(which I wouldn’t mind myself!) or a trip to the beach, whatever the kid wants. In this case?…here goes…
The little boy who is sick wishes to be a super hero, complete with an awesome costume! He’s at home when the mayor breaks into the cartoon he’s watching, pleading for the super hero to help catch the purple bad guy at city hall. Remember Stuart Snodgrass? Yeah, he’s costumed as the purple bad guy at city hall, volunteering his time and talents for Make A Wish.
The super hero(also known as the little boy with a disease none of us want), is whisked away to city hall where he rushes around trying to thwart the purple bad guy’s evil plan. Finally, his wish is complete when he casts his super hero net over the purple bad guy…and humanity is safe once again!
The Make A Wish Foundation does some incredible work…and they make some even more incredible commercials. Check them out at:
