12.5.11 -- (PHOENIX, AZ) -- Swiss America Trading Corporation today released the second in a series of provocative, hilarious animated television ads explaining how Americans can protect their savings with gold. The new ad raises the question whether America's gold stockpile is still in Fort Knox, Kentucky, or has been stolen.
For the past two generations Americans have sought to verify whether Federal Reserve and Federal Government records of U.S. gold holdings at Fort Knox are accurate and trustworthy.
In June 2011, Congressman Ron Paul (R.-Texas) challenged the Fed to provide for an independent audit to inventory all of the gold reserves at Fort Knox.
"You would think they are living on the other side of the rainbow," says entertainer Pat Boone at the start of this whimsical new :60 TV ad. He is referring to the trillions of U.S. Government stimulus spending racked up under the Obama Administration.
Mr. Boone is then sharply chastised for being an "ungrateful creature" by an animated version of President Barack Obama. "Gold is not money. It's just another commodity, like orange juice," an animated Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke tells Boone.
This ad, titled "WHAT'S REALLY INSIDE FORT KNOX?," offers viewers free multi-media educational resources from Swiss America that explain how to put yourself and your family on a "personal gold standard" for safety during these uncertain economic times.
The first in this new series of TV commercials, "PAT BOONE DEFLATES THE INFLATOCRACY," released last week, depicts Pat Boone confronting Mr. Bernanke and Mr. Obama while they carry out their "2012 Stimulus (and Re-election) Plan" by tossing $100 bills from a hot-air balloon over New York City.
