Hoping to keep things unpolitical here at Great Ads, this GE "Discus" Olympic commercial is great.
" ... Wind hasn't always played a helpful role at the Olympic games, but today wind energy is helping power the Beijing Olympic games; no matter which way the wind is blowing".

I love this great commercial just a little more because the General Electric, GE commercial for Olympic Games in Beijing 2008, was filmed in Jastrebarsko, Croatia, which is not from where my family is originally from.
