Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Michael, for making us aware of this commercial. The good folks at Baird Wealth Management have done a beautiful commercial for..well.. Baird Wealth Management. The film is beautiful and the copy nice. The intent of course is to say, go do what you want to do, it’s your life, and our company is owned by us, so we can do what we feel is right. You want to go restore a boat in the barn, have at it.
We here at Woody boater could no agree more. Here is a retired guy, let’s call him George, in his mid to late 60’s, he lives on the water. So he has that. He decides he wants to go boating. He could have gone out and purchased a new plastic boat for lets say $75K.. He goes out on it a bunch of times.. And then is bored, starts chasing Tammy the waitress down at the Lickety Split Market down the way. The trusting wife of our George finds out and BAM, George is in a divorce situation, Tammy has taken George for a small fortune before wife finds out.. All because he was bored with his new plastic boat.
NOW, if Baird Wealth Management advised him right, and they clearly did. they said George get a woody boat, something that will consume hours of your time. Go into the barn ..a lot, stay away from the Likety Split Market, and spend time on the phone with the good folks at Classic Boat Connection, go to the local ACBS show, and instead of looking for naked girly websites online, just visit Woody Boater. See… See George, that’s wealth Management. Ya still have your wife, who will of course complain that you smell of varnish and old gas… But George, that beats her complaining about smelling like Tammy!
Here is the commercial.
