Oklahoma City recently hosted one of the world's most boring road trips when the 2014 Mutual of Omaha Aha Moment Tour rolled into town. For the 20-city tour that somehow makes us look big league, Mutual of Omaha filmed people talking about important "aha moments" that can be twisted into subtle promotions for insurance.
It's a moment of clarity, a defining moment where you gain real wisdom - wisdom you can use to change your life. Whether big or small, funny or sad, they can be surprising and inspiring. Each one is unique, deeply personal, and we think, worth sharing.Mutual of Omaha celebrates and honors these moments and the people who act upon them. We're proud to have the products and services that can help people insure their possibilities.
So it has nothing to do with being trapped inside a black and white comic book and having to save a blonde Norwegian girl from the futuristic thought police? That's a shame, because it would have actually made this promotion somewhat interesting, and not the most boring thing to come out of Omaha since Tom Osborne.
Seriously, just check out this clip they put together recapping their Oklahoma City visit. Outside of a brief cameo by Marisa, who in all honesty thought she was auditioning to host Wild America, the only highlight is some guy learning the definition of eclectic.
Check it out:
So, uhm, did you make it through? Are you awake? I bet you fell asleep right when the Asian guy started talking about the Devon Tower echo. That happened to me the first few times, too. Go watch it again, but this time, think of this:
Is that better? Kept you awake and somewhat terrified, huh? Did you see the guy try to get into Chesapeake Arena? How about that action-packed and exciting Redhawks game? Riveting stuff. It kind of makes me want to go buy insurance and die.
Anyway, maybe it's time for the people at Mutual of Omaha to have their "aha moment" and realize they should stick with sponsoring wildlife shows that feature bears fighting wolves and bald eagles or whatever. That's entertaining. At the very least, get Marty Stouffer in there to beat up that annoying dude with the douchestache. What was up with that guy? You could tell he thought he was way too cool. He looked like he just crawled out of a hole in the Plaza District. Which brings up the question: How did that guy not find the Plaza District?! You think the little magnets in his mustache would have pointed the way. That's how hipsters find other hipsters, right?
