    If you go to the movies this holiday season you might be treated to a 45 second "ad" put out by the Federal Reserve just before the movie previews start. Apparently the ads will give us helpful credit card advice (lol) and doesn't tell you anything you don't already know basically, but it sounds so Orwellian and bizarre. :eek:

    :rofl: that was good ;) It's still weird tho, no? Maybe it seems weird because it's the Federal Reserve. It wouldn't seem so strange if it was just a regular commercial spot done by some regular ad agency or whoever typically does those but coming from the Fed is what makes it seem so bizarre to me.

    I had to look this up lol:

    Sounds like a PR thing. Its better for them to be known as just another government agency giving out spending advice, as opposed to being thought of as the Illuminati-controlled shadow government agency that's destroying the economy.

    Also seems like they are trying to push some blame for overspending and overdoing credit debt from them and companies back onto the public who are overspending and overborrowing...
