I am a college football fan and love spending time with my family gathered around the TV – or at live games at my alma mater. While watching the games, I sometimes cause family members to groan or roll their eyes when I comment on the commercials. Paying attention to commercials is also one of my hobbies – I do not just wait for the Super Bowl extravaganzas.
On Saturday, October 9, I noticed a new addition to the line of commercials that ExxonMobil often airs about its investments in renewable or alternative forms energy. This one features an engineer talking about loving her job extracting natural gas from hard rock formations. The production value is quite evident; ExxonMobil does not do things on the cheap. I saw it aired at least a half a dozen times on at least two different networks on Saturday. ExxonMobil recently spent $41 Billion to purchase XTO, a domestic company that specializes in producing gas from hard rock formations.
