Topic: Marine Corps recruiting commercials


I love those

I remember that really old one with the lava monster, where the Marine runs into the middle of the volcano and shops his arm off.

I also like the one where he is climbing a mountain and it says how hard it is to be a Marine, but if you complete the journey you join your place among the world's greatest warriors THE FEW, THE PROUD, THE MARINES.

and i also like the one where it has that wall of pictures and that little boy and it says he is so proud because he hails from a family of the Marines.

how can one not want to join the Marines after seeing those commercials.
I wanted to join since forever.

don't you think the commercials are great

i think that all recrutiment commercials are bad...

It just shows that US needs more troops... Or that the army service is not as popular as it was before.

I am going to agree with Snauhi

I do not think that there has ever been a recruiting commercial that has inspired me. The things that would inspire me are military movies and detailed books on military history.

Recruiting commercials have been around since the dawn of television and not something new because the "US needs more troops". And they go further back than TV of course, radio, newspapers, posters all long before the television. If you are against recruitment, Snauhi, I wonder what you're doing here.

LMAO! That one I want to see!

I am living in such a conservative, pacifist, anti-war country that I will probably never experiance such a funny thing. But I have seen some advertisings that made me want to take a rubber raft an paddle my way to the US over the North Atlantic directly. And if I only was a US citizen I would probably have joined up immediatly, even if I had to be a shit house cleaner in a desert camp outside the Kuwait border. But here I am. A married swedish citizen with a dog, and I cant do anything to make this world safer and save other human lifes, more then look at the news and get angry everyday after work.

I was born in the wrong country at the wrong time at the wrong place

Actually I think the best commercials are the Army ones; like the one with the Russian immigrant driving the Stryker, that was cool. The Marine ones just seem so....cheesy.

Yeah so's the standing on a mountain peak with a back drop of the american flag blowing int he back ground, and marines marching faded into that:P It's all a bit much.

The one with the Cpl. in dress blues doing the manual of arms with a Springfield 1903 was the best. No sounds except the hands popping the weapon. Then at the end.

Maybe you can be one of us.

The Few. The Proud. The Marines.


Too bad most of you never saw it cicra late 70's.
