To stick with the football theme... how about something along the lines of
the recent batch of XFL commercials

Well, along those same lines, how about taking real world experience to the
tube?  Recreate the toss down the stairs one took a couple of years ago from
thieves down under!  Take a working AS/400, unplug it and toss it down
several flights of stairs, beat it up a little bit, then plug it in and power
it back up.

Fade to a montage of the published news stories and, unlike GM and their "can
our truck really tow a semi?" advert, say something like "actual system under
actual conditions.  Takes a licking and keeps on processing x transactions
per minute."

Sure beats a merry-go-round...
