Lawyers - now in 3D

I guess giant checks, sad looking children, and car crash photos aren’t enough to grab viewers’ attention anymore when it comes to legal ads. A lot of the lawyers who advertise on TV practice similar law, and honestly, the ads do start to seem alike. To stand out in the crowd, a Kentucky attorney has decided to create a 3D ad.

Yes, that’s right, the law is coming to you in 3D now.

Eric C. Conn in Stanville, Ky., has produced what he claims is the first 3D lawyer commercial. You can watch the 60-second commercial on YouTube.  You see an animated version of Conn jumping off a billboard right at you, and then you learn more, in 3D of course, about Conn and how he’s Kentucky’s only board certified Social Security disability specialist. The text literally jumps out of the TV right at you. That is, if you have 3D glasses.

I don’t know of anyone who has on hand a pair of 3D glasses. But don’t fear, as the commercial instructs you how to make your own pair of glasses. If only I had the materials here at work, because without the glasses, the commercial just looks like a blurry lawyer ad.

In a very saturated market, Conn did come up with a novel way to stand out in the crowd. Whether people choose him as their lawyer because of the ad remains to be seen. It will get people talking, and maybe when they need an attorney his name will come to mind because it came at viewers’ heads in 3D.

  1. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
