Six Word Story Challenge: Commercials

130703reclame3We all are confronted with commercials on daily basis. Advertisements in magazines, commercials on the radio and TV, on billboards and even in the air. Sometimes it is useful – like when you’re hungry halfway through the movie, or when you need to visit the bathroom. But apart from that… 

How do you feel about commercials? Can we do without? Is it interesting to know what is for sale? New products? Where you can shop cheapest? Are there commercials especially annoying? Or do you like them?

Tell us YOUR story about COMMERCIALS in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.

Into The West ~ Ireland

Into the West is a film from 1992 about two young boys, Tito and Ossie, whose father was “King of the Travellers” until his wife, Mary, dies during the birth of their second son, Ossie. The boys’ grandfather is an old story-telling Traveller, who regales the children with Irish folk-tales and legends.

When he is followed by a beautiful white horse called Tír na nÓg (meaning “Land of Eternal Youth” in Irish), from the sea to Dublin, where the boys and their father now live, the boys are overwhelmed with joy and the dreams of becoming cowboys.

The horse is stolen from them and they begin their adventure to get their mystical horse back. They escape the poverty of a north Dublin council estate, and “Into the West” where they find that Tír na nÓg is not just a horse.
