    O Mi Gosh - was just watching the bike races on the telly & up came an ad from the CofS - an very young girl holding "New Slant on Life" up to the camera in front of the Yarra River directly below the (old) Org & recommending you purchase a copy from "".

    that would have cost them, i.e. their donors, a LOT! :omg:

    Emma might recognise who that was - I do vaguely recognise her but I was only sporadically in that org over the past 10 years.

    Wow, they managed to fund a television commercial down there? I'm impressed.

    Was it a long commercial? I'm guessing less then 10 seconds.
    Did it look professionally produced? Or just a Scientologist holding a decent camera...
    I would very much like to see this commercial if anyone could possibly get it on youtube.

    Yes - probably just under 10 seconds - very simply produced with just one camera on the girl speaking live in front of the river so as to include Russell Street (Melb org address) on the other side & then just the "www" address text on the bottom - so maybe the biggest cost would be the actual paid advertising space - it was on a fairly prime time spot - daytime Phillip Island motoGP $$$!

    Mmmm ... hope someone else saw it & could catch a recording of it somehow to share with you.
