The University of Phoenix Shows A Compelling Story As Told To A Great-Granddaughter

The University of Phoenix has a spotty academic reputation. But damn, it can make a good commercial. A few months ago, UofP had a stop-motion animated spot depicting the struggles and triumphs of a single mother restarting her education…and it was a big hit. Another touching ad starred NFL star Larry Fitzgerald. Now, they have a compelling ad with an old lady talking to her newly born great-granddaughter. We see the elderly lady’s story of escaping the horrors of war as a young girl, emigrating to the United States, learning English, grinding, working, and persevering…until she’s become a success. Wow. Excellent work.
