I don't know if the commercial is playing everywhere, but here in California there is a commercial running for a telecommunications company which portrays Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. standing alone reciting his I Have A Dream speech to a completely deserted mall, created using digital effects altering the actual film. "Before you can inspire, before you can touch, you must connect", the commercial declares. People I've spoken with are outraged by such a misuse of what should be sacred. How can the company get away with using that? The answer surprised me. You can view the commercial here.
