Feel free to send us images at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it to the blog. [SEE FULL POST]
In light of political tension and divisiveness throughout the world, one television ad stuck out to the Peppermill team last week. Just recently, Amazon released a touching advertisement that features a friendship between two religious leaders from the UK. According to the Telegraph, the names of the featured men are Rev. Gary Bradley and Zubeir Hassam, an imam. The heartfelt Amazon ad focuses on Bradley and Hassam as they chat over tea. Noticing they both experience knee pain, they simultaneously purchase each other knee pads through Amazon’s website. The spot ends with Bradley in his church, Hassam in his mosque – both kneeling to pray.
