Ad Campaign For New $20 Bill A Success

WASHINGTON, DC—The U.S. Department of the Treasury deemed the new multicolored $20 bill a raging success Monday, thanks to its $30 million advertising campaign. "Due to our print and TV ads, people across the nation are choosing our $20 bill when they need to exchange currency for goods and services within the United States and its territories," Secretary of the Treasury John Snow said. "We couldn't be happier. Americans agree that the Series 2004 U.S. currency is the legal tender for all debts, public and private." Due to high demand for the bill, the Treasury has already ordered second and third printings.

I even noticed the dang thing plastered on the field of some NFL games (nice computer work guys, but when a player walks over it, it looks pretty shoddy). And that commercial with the guy throwin' the new $20 over his shoulder and across his arm like he is a Harlem Globetrotter. Whats up with that?

Seriously....do we have a CHOICE in currency?? :-/ It's not like I'd prefer to use the old style $20's, what the bank gives me I use. $30 million that could've went towards health care or something.... :mad:
