    Aruba Commercials

    Has anyone seen the commercials on tv about Aruba? I'm in the Boston area and they have been running since the beginning of the year. One is two people walking on the beach - a comedian and someone who is suppose to be a local person - and the other is a general one about the island. Makes you want to call the airlines right now - especially with the icy/snowy winter we've been having. Is tourism down that much that they have to advertise? I don't remember ever seeing a commercial before, but then again, I hadn't been to Aruba before until recently....

    Yeh they are pretty funny. The comedian is Lewis Black. I saw him last in Vegas. Pretty funny guy.

    I haven't seen any of the commercials on TV here yet; but frequently hear them on local radio stations.

    The Aruba Tourism Authority has advertised regularly throughout the years. Past advertisements can be viewed at

    Cute commercials, very mild and tame for him. His latest book is pretty entertaining as well.

    The ads with Lewis are sensational.
    There is one in which he complains that, because it is always TOO nice a day, nothing can get done in Aruba. It is a touching, existential piece of art. The excruciatingly beautiful young woman with whom he speaks disappears from the screen as Lewis loses his frustration, and loses himself in the moment. It's almost as though she is unreal, the spirit of Aruba, speaking to him. I love this funny and beautiful ad.
