This isn't specific to any one commercial, but it seems to happen a lot--the commercial wants to depict a sunrise, but instead of actually filming a sunrise they'll reverse the film of a sunset. IT'S NOT THE SAME! In the northern hemisphere, the sun moves from left to right as it rises; in reversed sunsets it is shown moving right to left.
One of our local stations uses the gimmick during a commercial for how they cover the news all day long--it makes me doubt the veracity of their reporting.

I don't understand why automobile companies have to include so much violence in their commercials. It makes no sense to me. Why must they show people hitting each other or destroying property to sale a car? I guess it's a trend. I've noticed it during the last couple of years. (People slapping each other in the face as they stand beside their car, cars falling off cliffs and being broken into pieces, and cars being driven in a reckless manor.)
Sunsets, on the other hand do slowly gradually go down & fade out, like on TV.
Thanks, I'll watch for it now.

Why does he sing so loud and look so plastic? During the football games today the ATT commercial with the creepy guy and the little kids was played as the first commercial at break more than once and I couldn't hit the pause or mute button fast enough..."which is better...?" PLEASE GO AWAY!

OMG! So I'm not the only one! He sounds like he's straining and it's painful.
Count your blessings!
DH and I couldn't remember his name when the commercials first started airing though he looked familiar. He was smart to lose that godawful hair though.
