Surfing through the channels late one night, I paused on PBS.
A lone man walking onto a stage in a darkened auditorium had caught my eye. Behind the man, a waving flag was projected onto a giant screen. As the man approached the microphone, his footsteps where amplified and the microphone squealed and reverberated. Initially the man's speech was slow and nervous, but as his confidence in himself and in what he was saying grew, his speech emerged into a crescendo, much to the delight of the audience who applauded and cheered while images were projected onto the giant screen.
Perhaps remind you a little of this
Close. Only in this case, it was an American flag that was projected onto the screen, the man's name was Bob, the images behind him were American icons, and his speech was about sponsoring PBS through donations. The rant ended with, "I am Bob and when I give to PBS
, I give to America."
