The New NY Works For Business, Says Robert De Niro

Empire State Development has introduced new spots from BBDO which tout New York (the whole state, not just the city) as a great place to do business. The lead commercial is narrated by Robert De Niro, shot by Spike Lee and features the anthemic sounds of “Empire State of Mind.” It’s good, solid stuff…not groundbreaking, but since it came on the TV while I’m in New York applying to jobs online, it just seemed appropriate to put it on here.

      This puzzled me and I spent far too much time tying to figure it out when the commercial played. Thanks for locating them on the clip. It looks like they are bags probably filled with sand to help level the pipes that rest on them. But who knows? I am glad to know that I wasn’t the only perplexed person out there.

        To my husband they looked like dead chickens. I thought they were some sort of sand bag. We were in upstate NY this weekend and we saw the same type bags being used to keep temporary road signs weighted down.
