‘Outgunned by a Frigate’

The figurehead on a ship is a major feature of the commercial. It reminds me of a similar one on a ship my ancestors took to America in 1887.

I love the story line in a Land Rover commercial.

Produced by Y&R, the commercial is titled “The Collector” and “takes us on an unexpected journey across land and sea, bringing together events that began two centuries ago.”

It is one the better commercials I have seen in awhile.

At first I thought the spot debuted during the Super Bowl. I may have seen it for the first time while watching the game. It actually premiered in November of 2012.

The moment I saw the lady I thought of the ship my great grandparents boarded  to get to America, the Weser of the North German Lloyd line. A figurehead like the one in the commercial adorns the Weser.
