AC360 commercial from CNNj

Personally, I hate this commercial, but it is pretty popular among Anderfans.You might want to see, so again, I upload the movie here!

The combination of YouTube and Anderson Cooper is amazing! Within a day, my terrible-quality videos were viewed more than one hundred times!

Hi Mio! I'm from the Philippines and we get that AC360 Commercial too (CNN Intl.). I just discovered your site thru Andercandor. I know you hate this commercial but I like it. When I start hearing that music I know Anderson's on screen and his show is up next. Unfortunately, we only get the first hour (unless there's breaking news) of his show so I tend to go to the cnn website for the transcript of the second hour. Thanks for the clips you uploaded on Youtube, I really enjoyed it.

Hi Mio,

I don't know why you hate this commercial. Thank you for having it uploaded on YouTube. I like it too. I've seen it a few times on CNN Int.
Your post on AnderCandor is great!

Thank you for your comment, Pebbles.

I thought the commercial was just for Japan because we see "CNNj" at the end of the CM. I imagine the same slide show is used in Asia and in Europe. I wonder what it is like in the U.S.

I usually record the show and watch it after I come back from work. Once in a bluemoon, my PC doesn't work. In that case, I do exactly what you do. I turn to Transcript and watch VIDEO.

Hi, delie.

I really appreciate your coming back to my blog! I feel like I'm posting for you!

I do not like the commercial because they put too much emphasis on how cool he is. Of course, he is cool, but I would like to see more content-oriented commercial full of Anderson's enthusiasm towards stories. Preferably, adding one of his good quates.

Hi Mio,

Your post on AnderCandor was great. Thanks for loading this commerical, I have never seen it before. I liked it as there are some cure shots of Anderson *sigh*

PS: I am really enjoying your blogsite!

Mio-- This commercial ran last year here in the United States. Sometimes it was this long version and sometimes it was a shorten version. I thought it was kind of neat. The commercials now seem to be taped from the night before, where Anderson tells us what is going to be on the show that night. There is also another commercal that they show of him that I believe was when he was in the congo. I saw it also posted on youtube.

I caught your post on Andercander and thought you did great. I hope you will still keep this blog up and running.

Hey Mio - love your blog; I visit everyday even though I don't comment every day.

If you get to see this commercial every night before 360, I think you're incredibly lucky. I love this commercial. They don't play it in the United States anymore. They didn't run it right before the show, it was more a generic ad for 360. I especially like the shots that were from his coverage of Katrina; it not only shows how cool and cute he is, but the emotion and compassion that show through in his coverage of the news.

Great blog!

Now, you can see that you post not only for the little lost Frenchie Anderfan but for many people. I read other AC blogs but I don't post comments on all of them. Sometimes, it's really hard for me to express what I want in another language than mine. Very frustrating too. I'm sure you understand what I mean.

Your blog is great and amazing.

Now, I am getting addicted to not only Anderson but also this "Addicted to Anderson blog." It's really nice to see comments for my post. How can I thank you enough!?

@pati mc - I was really nervous about posting my commentary after your very detailed report. For next's week show, I'll try my best not to look my commentary terrible after your sophisticated one.

@jan - At the end of the CM, it says "CNNj," so I thought some Japanese staff members made it. But it seems people around the world are sharing this CM.

@andysgirl - I feel really encouraged to know that you visit my blog everyday! I want to make this blog even more worth visiting.

@delie - Yes, I know exactly what you mean. We are both using English as a second language. Now, I am thankful that I can use this language. I can understand what Anderson is talking about, and I can share this great fascination with people around the world.

Please don't be so hard on yourself. Your post was wonderful! I think it is awesome that you are all the way in Japan and take the time to do this, let alone in a foreign language! I could never do that. You are incredibly smart and brave.

I love your site, keep up the good work. I very much appreciated your kind comments about my post. You are very sweet. And yours was just as good! =)

Looking forward to talking with you more! See you on AnderCandor too!

Your friend,

Pati Mc

Hi, Pati.

I do not think I'm a smart person, but as you said, I may be quite brave!
