Commercial – epic fail!

I saw a Jeep commercial recently that just blew my mind.  It said, “Be proud of your name.  It is what defines you.  What makes you unique.  Nobody can take that away from you.”

Puh-lease.  The delivery makes it sound good but then the meaning hits you.  May I refer them to a little Romeo and Juliet?  “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”   A name is not what defines you.  Your name is a label. What makes you unique is your essence – the culmination of your environment, experiences and your DNA – NOT your name.  And yes, they CAN take it away from you.  Ever heard of libel?  Slander?  Name change?  Someone can have the exact same name.  Good grief!
