We all know the Mean-Drill-Sergeant-Dresses-Down-The-Recruit bit. (Though still makes me cringe every time, fearing the ungodly wrath to come if he doesn’t get the right answer.)
But in this new “Defy Expectations” spot from the US Army, when one private speaks out with an unexpected response, he gets an equally unexpected reply! You just don’t see it coming, and that’s what makes the point.
I not only personally breathed a sigh of relief, but was delightfully reminded of the many diverse beyond-the-battlefield career opportunities today’s US army has to offer, opportunities many of today’s young recruits are looking for.
So I think it deserves a GWH W.T.F. (Winner, Toss-Up, or Flop) WINNER Award for getting the message across LOUD and clear!
