Wasn't this one of the very BEST commercials, ever aired on TV?

It is such a shame that what was shown in it, didn't actually happen, but many who saw it during the Super Bowl, sure thought that it had, and doctors, nurses and hospitals were deluged the next day, with telephone calls asking, "How did you cure him?"

Yeah, it's too bad the cures haven't come in time for a lot of people.
Christopher Reeve held a pretty warm place in American's hearts. Even in watching it again I could feel a tightening in the throat. Whether ya liked Chris as an actor or not, ya have to admire his style.

I guess the callers missed the part about "in the future".

"They" also missed the reference within the commercial, to "2004," which, ironically, was the year Chris died.

I really miss him and his wife, Dana, who is also "gone."

Life isn't fair, for anyone.
