    Default Warning...causes temporary paralysis and a stupid smile!

    I first saw it played during the olympics. I stopped dead in my tracks in front of the tv, didn't move for the full two minutes had a stupid smile on my face when it was over. This morning while getting ready for work, I was in the bedroom and faintly heard it on the tv in the living room. I ran to the living room and again stared at the tv...temporary paralysis! Again a stupid smile on my face when it was all done. My husband has also experienced this strange phenomenon.
    I am of course speaking of the new "One Love" Come to Jamaica commercial they have been airing recently! It draws you in I swear! You kind of have a warm fuzzy feeling when it's done. Anyone else experience this?

    My husband called me into the bedroom one day and told me I "had" to watch this as he was rewinding on the dvr. He also had the stupid smile on his face which made me wonder what he was up to. As soon as I saw the commercial I understood. So no, you are not alone in this.

    I think I actually shed a few tears when I saw the latest Jamaican commercial on TV a few months ago. Brought back all the memories we had of our trip, and it also brought on the longing to return.

    It's funny... We'd seen them before on TV, and we always said that we wanted to go and experience this beautiful place that is Jamaica. The commercials portray this amazing place, and we just had to go and check things out for ourselves.

    The commercials always say "Once you go, you know..." It's amazing how that doesn't really mean anything to you unless you HAVE been there.

    Now that we'd been, and have experienced Jamaica, we truly DO know...

    God I can't wait until November to come HOME!!!

    That "guy" is Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter who won three gold medals in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

    I caught it twice yesterday morning when I went into the breakroom at work for a coffee refill. It was much needed to help me get through these last 29 days!

    11 more days! Seems like the commercial starts to run every year right after we book our trip.....makes you stop, smile, and sway to the music.

    Oh YEAH! i LOVE those commercials!!! Every time we see it, we stop what we're doing and have a moment. Kids yelling, dog romping around the house, phone going off, and there's my wife and I ...frozen in place by the light of the TV and despite all the chaos I know she's thinking the same thing I am... "Yeah Mon"
    Ahhhhhhh
