[wrote...a few days ago about the Enron TV advertisements still being 
available online. sure enough, within hours, they went offline, and the 
page is 'not found' as are the files. luckily, downloaded the movies to 
disk, for educational purposes, as there was one movie in particular 
(the last/5th) which was prescient to what has occurred since the 2000 
US election night when it aired on national television. so, have put 
these files online at a few sites, please take a looksee at the _main_ 
site, and please download and re-distribute (for educational purposes 
only) the content, as it needs to be in the public domain, given the 
givens, such that US energy policy and the US Energy Task force is 
becoming a key issue (ie, non-starter) for changing the outcome of 
accountability, beyond money, and into power brokering at the highest

[from Enron's website on advertising why-campaign, immediately taken 
offline as of 1/26/2002, after publicly posting that the TV commercials 
were  still online...] See the LAST MOVIE for a most disturbing 
correlation to the Enron case today... YOU CAN HELP by SAVING (and 
renaming) the movies and creating MIRRORs to keep this information in 
the public domain, away from the powerful private shredders of truth...

[quote from Enron's WHY ad-campaign webpage]

	There is a very simple question
	behind our advertising campaign.

	It is a small word...
	but it can bring years
	of conventional assumptions
	to a jarring halt.

	Find out how we're changing
	the way industries think.

	Discover the power of WHY

[ENRON TV Commercials 2000-2001/Windows Media & QuickTime videos]

#1   Why. It can bring years of conventional assumptions to a jarring 

30 seconds (1.5M Windows Media)


[DESCRIPTION: WHY commercial using a philosophical bent to convey 
'because'. Interesting aspects of commercial, one being the use of sign 
language, starting with the signed letter "W", the three fingered 
salute used by George W. Bush in his election campaign, then, in a 
staccato of images, the letters 'H' and 'Y'  in turn. Also, world-class 
architect Frank Gehry's "Fred & Ginger" building in Germany is used as 
a symbol of the power of WHY, quite ironic in that insider- trading and 
aesthetic smokescreen's pervade the global arts ands humanities.]

{QUOTE: (typical marketing foo-fah which needs to be seen to be 
perceived, but the ending has this gem of a quote:) "Most innovative 
company in America. -FORTUNE Magazine. FORTUNE Magazine's Most Admired 
Companies Survey." (followed by the closing icon) "ENRON. ask why."}

#2    It's how we are changing the way industries think.

30 seconds (1.6M Windows Media)


[DESCRIPTION: Man in locked metal suit in city, like tin-man in Wizard 
of Oz, symbolic to the well-known tale of illusory power.]

{QUOTE: "Keep asking why... It is just the most critical question there 
is. We inheret some ideas that are unnecessary. We have to jetison that 
excess baggage, in order to make progress. ... You can't really live 
without questioning why"}

#3   Enron has created the market to buy and sell bandwidth.

30 seconds (5M QuickTime Mac)


[DESCRIPTION: creating bandwidth as a market commodity, compared to 

#4    EnronOnline has created an open, transparent marketplace.

30 seconds (1.6M Windows Media)


[DESCRIPTION: blind humans in mice costumes with business suits in the 
maze of the city with canes and seeing eye dogs]

{QUOTE: "Enron Online will change the markets for many many 
commodities, it is creating an open, transparent marketplace that 
replaces the dark blind system that existed. It is real simple: you 
turn on your computer and it's right there - and if you want to do 
business, you push the button."}

#5  Enron has created a new market to
	protect revenue against unfavorable weather. ***

30 seconds (1.6M Windows Media)    quack!quack!


[DESCRIPTION: commercial aired in California on the US Presidential 
Election night.  Along with others. It shows a CEO who has to break 
bad-news to its shareholders, who is then turned into a state-fair 
shooting duck. Enron is predictable, the opposite of this situation. 
Although it has been stated that in 2000 people knew that things were 
unraveling in the company along these lines...] {QUOTE: "Welcome 
analysts, this was a challenging fiscal year for the company--" (says 
CEO in bathroom rehersal). (shareholders take their seats)... (still in 
bathroom, the CEO continues...) "-due to unpredictable weather, 
earnings are down." (antacid-like medicine is put into wine-glass, next 
to prescription bottles of pills)... (CEO repeats self...) "Welcome 
analysts." (Now CEO is on stage, and says...) "But as everyone knows, 
you can't predict the weather." (cut to video of a state-fair 'toy' 
shooting-gallery of mechanical bunny rabbits and ducks)... (image of 
duck getting hit by bullet and falling down)... (CEO shownspeaking 
again...) "There is nothing you can do about it" (cut to CEO's face 
being shown in place of the mechanical duck in the toy-gun 
shooting-gallery,...) (the CEO's face is shot, and like the duck, is 
taken-down in the state-fair game)... (cut to white Enron text on black 
screen:) "Enron has created a new market to protect revenue against 
unfavorable weather." (immediately after, the words fade in...) "why?" 
(then) "ask why?"}
