Q: It was July first that NBC broadcast the first TV commercial. What was the product?
A: Watches. Bulova paid nine dollars for a commercial during a Dodgers/Phillies game on July 1st, 1941. For some perspective, a thirty second TV ad during the 2010 Superbowl cost close to three million dollars.
We talked about this this AM, so if you're looking info about Project Surf Camp near Moro Bay, you can find it here. A great idea...teaching special needs kids to surf...probably something that they'd never get a chance to do otherwise. It costs the camp $160 per camper, but they only charge a $50 registration fee.
