    even change their name from AIG to something else?  I wonder if they are running ads in Europe because I believe they also had holding in Europe which is now a big financial mess and back in recession.  

    Trying to live among criminals with power and money is very difficult.  They brought the world ecomony to its knees, how can anyone improve their image after that?  LOL.

        the AIG ad has a guy in a hard hat and I believe a plain cotton shirt.  He looked more like a construction guy than what I remember the AIG guys looking like in 2008 wearing expensive suits and carrying leather briefcases.  

        It is sad that they expect Americans to ID with labor when most of those jobs have been shipped out of the country.  Back in the 1970s that ad might have worked.  Today it is just another ad for how out of touch the company is with real Amierca.
