Here is a link to a new GE Locomotives television commercial, as well as a short documentary on how the commercial was made.

Da, that's what you do when you have a pot of cash to spend on advertising. Too bad EMD doesn't have that flair ... yet.

Now if only the RR industry would advertise as much as big pharma..I'd actually watch TV more! :-D :-D :-D

i just saw another one, but this was for their aircraft engines. It was pretty funny too.

As Uhaul's post confirms, the music is from the movie "Top Gun".

Maybe the commercial is a message from GE to EMD? :-D

Seriously, among other things it points out that heavy manufacturing is alive and well in the U.S.

The making of documentery was interesting.

Darn, I wish I had an Arri camera that was nice like that one :(

Interestingly, yeah, they shot it on film. Go figure.
