Celebrating Centenarians

You might remember that a certain relative of mine (my father’s godfather, and distant cousin), Ed Rondthaler is a 100+ year-old. Well, Genworth Financial has started running a new ad campaign celebrating the lives of centenarians, and the featured 101 year-old is none other than Ed Rondthaler himself. I’ve seen the spot during Monday night football, and it’s running on both the East and West coast, if not the whole country. You can also view the ad yourself by following these steps:

  1. Head to: http://onehundred.genworth.com/.
  2. Skip the intro.
  3. Click on “The Genworth Story” book at the bottom.
  4. Click on “See our centenarian advertising campaign” at the bottom of the first page.
  5. Click on the third television ad thumbnail (the guy with the beard).
  6. There he is!

It’s great hearing his voice (it’s been years since I’ve seen him), seeing him use a computer, and I still have fond memories of that powerful laugh of his. Here’s hoping I live to be 101 years-old and beyond!
