    Happy to see you guys have some big views! Everyone watching this subscribe to Fire Place!! I’ve loved them for a long time and even though they’ll always like me more their content is still worth diving into!!

    This is sooo great!!! I've dogged on this commercial for so long! Sounds like a Marines commercial. But it's crypto, for some reason. I was watching an NBA game last week and this came on and after it ended, I said, "Thanks, Matt Damon! I definitely needed that." Then proceeded to never need that.

    • Greg Stapleton

      @Sean Brockest Oh absolutely!! I mean, it's weird that there are medication ads anyways, but nothing that is shown had ANYTHING to do with the product. I guess their thoughts are, "Take our drug and your life will be happy." But at least 60% of the commercial is talking about possible side-effects. And I love it when one of the listed side-effects is death. And the actors on the screen are smiling and holding hands watching a sunset. Wait, what?!?! Death!?! Haha!

    • Sean Brockest
      Sean Brockest 13 days ago +4

      It reminds me of those dodgy pharmaceutical commercials. Shows a happy family playing with a dog, then shows the name of the drug, and says "Ask your doctor"....?? WTF??? About what?

    The acting on this is on point. Love when the couple comes on screen and are about to kiss and the guy checks the door to make sure it's closed

    Notice that Matt never even says anything about the company, the name, the product? I honestly think he just filmed this in front of a greenscreen with no clue as to what he was going to be promoting.

      The classic Mat Damon generic commercial package.. {INSERT LOGO HERE} We used to get those at the TV station.. Fully produced generic spot that we just slap a logo on the end of.

  • Dusty Belew

    This ad bothers me because I've always heard it, "fortune favors the bold". So when he says "brave" it gets under my skin a bit.

    • Aidan Rogers
      Aidan Rogers 3 days ago +2

      Actually, ‘the brave’ and ‘the strong’ have been used in other translations of the original Latin, but ‘the bold’ is the version that’s been most used. It just depends on how it’s been translated.

      It's totally bold not brave. Mega fail on the writer's part. Virgil would be rolling his eyes in his grave.

      But Fortune refers to the Roman Goddess of luck Fortuna. So that implies gambling.

    Isn't it usually "Fortune Favors the BOLD" this has been bothering me for weeks.

    • Cody Ingram
      Cody Ingram 12 days ago

      I thought they switched it to "brave" in order to sell the idea that you have to be brave to throw all your money away on crypto currency in the hopes of a return on your investment.

    • 360 ODYSY
      360 ODYSY 13 days ago

      It's supposed to replay in your mind, that's why they made it BRAVE in stead of BOLD.

    • zachary edwards
      zachary edwards 13 days ago +4

      Just left this on another thread but - The original phrase was in Latin, said by Virgil, with the most common iteration being “Audaces Fortuna Iuvat”. Audaces can be translated as bold, brave, audacious, courageous and a number of other similar words. I personally prefer bold as I think it captures the essence the best.

      @Atlanta Video Productions that's the point you nitwit. Crypto is useless except as an international online gambling game where you hope you can sell for a higher number to some other gambler to 'get rich'. It isn't some epic thing like this commercial suggests.

    Maybe fortune favors the brave (I'm not really sure about that one) but I don't think that any of those things implied really count as bravery: the sliding through a steel door right before it closes, or blasting off in a rocket ship and dodging through a barricade... To me bravery is not about winning despite the odds; it's about knowing who you are, and what's important to you, and living that way despite the consequences, even if only for a second. Bravery is for people who know their own heart. And I'm sorry but no advertisement or product has ever taught me anything about "who I am...."

    hahah, this is good advertising though, people are kind of dumb, that's why advertising works. This is exactly the kind of "epic" shit that works on people. CDC don't care about looking smart, they're trying to onboard as many users as possible and being dumb and over the top is a smart way to do that in our societies. Apple ads are equally as egotistical and vein, and everyone thinks they're part of the upper class of society for owning an iPhone now. These companies do what they got to do to achieve the results they desire.
