Is watching a Super Bowl commercial enough to make you enlist in the United States military? The Marines seem to think it just might be. And indeed the Super Bowl LII Marines ad is pretty compelling, what with all the heavy machinery from planes to ships to helicopters, but still probably not enough to suddenly convince anyone to join the armed forces.

However, perhaps if one was already on the fence about enlisting, this Marines Super Bowl commercial would be enough to make him or her jump?

Either way, the bigger issue we have with this commercial isn’t about its intent or its content, but is about the fact that the military spent millions of dollars of our tax dollars seeking recruits! Oh well, we do need a military these days.
