The “Whisper Fight” commercial for Oreos cookies that aired during the Superbowl is getting a lot of attention from librarians, and seems to be generally well-received among the commercial-loving public.
Sunday night I was visiting with some friends who were having a small Superbowl party. At one point I remember looking over to the television and seeing a library being destroyed. I wasn’t close enough to hear what was going on and missed the joke that through all of the destruction people continue to whisper because they’re in the library. Instead, I was a bit horrified by the wanton library violence. I only hope this doesn’t become a trend.
On the other hand, I do fully endorse the idea of using your library voice no matter how chaotic things get in the library!
