You forgot a whole generation in there, and they're more at risk than Boomers; my mother's generation, those who grew up with either older siblings or parents that -were- the GI/Greatest Generation. My mother's mom would be 102 this year [she almost made it to 99, so....] and her husband was at Pearl Harbour. The Silent Generation is still around though, in their mid 70s to I guess early 90s?It's my understanding that the Greatest Generation were cohorts of my mother and father and older. That puts the youngest of the group currently at about 98 or 99 diminishing the impact of this ad.
In the US COVID impacts baby boomers the most.
But what do you think the whole MAGA BS is? Its an appeal to the 'Good Old Days' and nationalistic pride. That ad? Its brilliant; turning that pride around and actually pointing out how to -have- it for real.
