Dear Jesus, No!
The Oscar Mayer Selects campaign, developed by McGarry Bowen in Chicago…
Uses highly relateable examples to show how the word…
Is often the sensible thing to say…
By using creative and amusing scenes…
To establish the prevalence of the response…
In the daily life of a typical family…
Then, show how easy it is to say…
To the great taste of Oscar Mayer Selects…
That have no artificial preservatives…
An important attribute to reaching new consumers…
By poking fun at the messy, imperfect moments…
Experienced daily as we struggle to make better choices…
And to show that Oscar Mayer Selects is an easy…
And delicious choice…
When it comes to breakfast, lunch or dinner…
In the multi-spot television campaign…
The Oscar Mayer brand is holding a mirror up…
To real family life by following one family…
The Mayer Family…
Through a series of funny, realistic experiences…
In their house, just like in many others,
The Mom has to say…
To a lot of things…
Is said each and every day in this family’s house and…
At the end of each spot…
They find relief when they can say…
To Oscar Mayer Selects Cold Cuts, Hot Dogs and Bacon.
If you haven’t seen the commercials…
Watch an example at:
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s all right
When “No!” They’re not
This world needs God
But it’s easier to just stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong
But I Refuse!
‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh I Refuse!
To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move
But I Refuse!
I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, O God
So if You say move
It’s time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
And show them who You are
To stand and watch
The weary and lost
Cry out for Him
To turn my back
And try and act like all is well
To stay unchanged
To wait another day
To doubt myself
To make one more excuse
I wish I was more of a man,
Have you ever felt that way?
And if I had to tell you the truth
I’m afraid I’d have to say
That after all I’ve done and failed to do
I feel like less than I was meant to be
What if I could fix myself maybe then I could get free?
I could try to be somebody else who’s much better off than me
But I need to remember this
That it’s when I’m at my weakest I can clearly see
He made the lame walk and the dumb talk
And He opened blinded eyes to see
That the sun rises on His time
Yet He knows our deepest, desperate need
And the world waits while His heart aches
To realize the dream
I wonder what life would be like
If we let Jesus live through you and me
What if you could see yourself through another pair of eyes?
What if you could hear the truth instead of old familiar lies?
And what if you could feel inside the power of the hand
That made the universe?
All our hearts they burn within us
All our lives we’ve longed for more
So let us lay our lives
Before the one who gave His life for us
Let Him live through you and me
Say “Yes” to Jesus!!
Refuse to live any other way!!
