Foreclosure Commercials Coming to a TV Near You

The Obama administration on Wednesday unveiled a new TV advertisement for its anti-foreclosure programs.

The spot shows stone-faced homeowners immobilized by trouble with their mortgage payments. A woman stands motionless on her lawn, morning newspaper in hand as the sprinklers spray her bathrobe. A man stares blankly while pouring coffee all over his kitchen counter. An assembly-line worker lets a conveyor belt send bottles of cranberry juice shattering on the floor.
