A wonderful episode.
1 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent episode. Besides being humorous, the story is wonderful. Michael makes a commercial that constructively engages his staff in a project that makes them feel good and sells a product. Yet his ad is rejected purely for political reasons and Michael knows it and he is miffed for good reason. Corporate's ad is flashy but unimaginative and highlights the company as a corporate entity instead of the people who work for the company. What a downer. The episode also shows how Jim really likes Michael and does something to lift Michael's morale and the morale of the entire staff. Although Michael is self centered and boorish and commits numerous faux pas, this episode shows that he is also caring, engaging, and in his own way likable. What a great episode.
