I was at my local watering hole earlier tonight knocking back a pint or two around 2-2:30ish am EST. I'm half watching the chick at the end of the
bar and keeping an eye on the HDTV to my right. The bartender has it on some sports channel (maybe ESPN? I'm not a big sports fan) showing highlights
of the Giants - Rams game.
I look away for a second, take a swig of ale and look back at the TV and I almost spit out my beer.
In full 42 inch High Definition picture I'm looking at a commercial showing a burned out hulk of a building to the left and right sides of the
screen. In the debris strewn street are a couple of small scattered fires and what looked like the remains of a vehicle. Some guy is standing in the
middle of the street, center screen. As I look further into the background I clearly see the Gateway Arch in St.Louis at what appears to be a few
miles in the distance towering over what looks like the bombed out remains of the city.
Long story short, someone called my name at the end of the bar and I looked away, when I looked back at the tele the sports show was back on. I never
did get who the commercial was for although for some reason Verizon sticks in my head.
If I had to take a guess I would say by the level of destruction it either looked like there was an all out tanks, bombs, heavy artillery type war in
St. Louis or a nuclear explosion.
Now I know, pics or it didn't happen. I did some cursory searches on Youtube and the internet but found nothing. Has anyone else seen this????
I just have to wonder if this is just "shock marketing" campaign or some predictive programming for a future catastrophic event in St. Louis.
What say you? Any sports fans out there that seen this? I'll keep checking Youtube and post a vid if I can find it.
