There are books about bookstores. There are movies about bookstores. There is even a Monty Python sketch about a bookstore. And now there is a new FedEx commercial about a bookstore, Conspiracy Books. This creative 30-second spot is so well put together I had to share it. From the opening shot featuring the exterior of the store to the paranoid woman behind the desk sporting a t-shirt that says “Greetings from Area 51,” this ad immediately caught my attention and prompted me to look for it on Youtube then watch it repeatedly. How else would I have been able to ascertain the hilarious names of these books offered for sale:
Did the 15th Century Happen?
Follow the Chemtrails
Who's Really Pulling the Levers?
Did 1971 Happen?
Dinosaurs Built the Pyramids
and my favorite, They Control ALL from Shaking Ceiling Fans to Unanswered Text Messages.
A nice added touch is the small sign on the cash register picturing a helicopter above the words, TRUST NO ONE.”
What a fun bookstore this would be to visit!
