The first attempt at this commercial (ADAM REPOSA: Hero of Liberty - http://youtu.be/HVAK23yy5aY), with the intended message of rebuking the new ban on Big Gulps and other large sodas in NYC, was rejected by Mr. Reposa. Mr. Reposa stated that it did not "properly convey his intended message" of "freedom to drink large sodas."
Mr. Reposa suggested some unwanted and unsolicited changes: "make it more patriotic by adding the Star Spangled Banner," "do more choppy editing, like the first one," "make it less snobby and avant garde," "less cinematography," etc. Bob Ray thought these ideas sucked. But, being the total pro he is, Bob Ray re-edited the commercial.
Here is the revised version of the commercial.
Adam Reposa is a criminal defense lawyer in Austin, Texas. Also freedom.
ADAM REPOSA: Lawyer, Patriot, Champion
Commercial #2a (this commercial was rejected by Mr. Reposa, here it is anyway):
ADAM REPOSA: Hero of Liberty
Commercial #2b (a reluctant re-edit of Commerical #2a, "Hero of Liberty"):
ADAM REPOSA: I Am A Lawyer
