    TV spots inspire students to change the game

    Published: Sept. 19, 2011

    When a university is as big and bold as The University of Texas at Austin, it’s only fitting that its branding and TV spots are, too.

    Along with creative partner GSD&M, the university developed five new public service announcements (PSAs) to energize the “What Starts Here Changes the World” campaign, celebrate the university’s world-changing alumni and challenge students to aim higher. They feature the Tower as a 3-D puzzle, twisting and turning with images of former students emerging from the structure.

    The second PSA, titled “Footsteps,” debuted Saturday, Sept. 17 on the Longhorn Network.

    Also, don’t miss the first PSA, titled “Awards.”

    The new PSAs will appear in the future on TV channels such as Fox Sports, ABC and ESPN as well as the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium’s high-definition video scoreboard.

      The projected images on the tower are indeed phenomenal. However, they really, really need to use Walter Cronkite speaking the words "What starts here changes the world." Anything less is... less. Hopefully they decide to run any such spots on something other than the disastrous Longhorn Network or nobody will see it.
