OK RQ SHE’S AN ELEGANT SKATER… WITH A COMPETITIVE EDGE 3, 2, 1, GO! “I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, I CAN’T FIND ANY DOWNWARD STUFF.” GIGGLES AND SHE HAS A PRETTY COOL LAST NAME. “YOUR LAST NAME IS FREEZER? “YES.” “WELL THEN, YOU WERE DESTINED TO BE AN ICE SKATER.” “I LIKE TO THINK SO.” LAUGHS ELISE HAS A LOT TO SMILE ABOUT RIGHT NOW. THE COLORADO SPRINGS SKATER WAS CHOSEN TO STAR IN A NATIONAL COMMERCIAL, SCHEDULED TO AIR DURING THE WINTER OLYMPICS. “IT WAS THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE SO FAR.” ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE COMMERCIAL LET ELISE ACT OUT ONE OF HER REAL-LIFE DREAMS. “I COLLECT THE TOYS FOR THE BIG NAME SKATERS.AND SUDDENLY–I’M THE BIG NAME SKATER!” BUT THIS SUCCESS STORY DIDN’T COME WITHOUT SACRIFICE. HER MOTHER, JENNIFER, ADMITTING THE SPORT COST THEM AROUND 60,000 DOLLARS… EACH YEAR. “MOST OF THAT IS LESSONS AND ICE TIME.MY HUSBAND ENDED UP GETTING A SECOND JOB AND WE ENDED UP DOWNSIZING OUR HOME TO A TINY LITTLE APARTMENT HERE IN THE SPRINGS.” “SHE DIDN’T CARE IF SHE WAS IN SECOND HAND SKATES, IN A LOANER DRESS, OR WHERE HER SWEAT PANTS CAME FROM–SHE JUST HAD THE BIGGEST SMILE ON HER FACE THE WHOLE TIME.” THAT SMILE BIGGER THAN EVER THIS WEEK… ELISE HOPING THE COMMERCIAL WILL BRING HER EVEN CLOSER TO HER DREAM OF BECOMING AN OLYMPIAN AND A FIGURE SKATING COACH… “SO HOW’S MY FORM?” GIGGLING “LOOKS GREAT” … SHE HAS MY STAMP OF APPROVAL. “YOU JUST HAVE TO PUT SOME SKATES ON NOW!” AND AS A SOUVENIR, ELISE GOT TO TAKE THE BEAR HOME FROM THE SHOOT… SHE NAMED HIM SUNNY. WE DON’T KNOW THE EXACT TIME THE SUNTRUST COMMERCIAL WILL AIR, BUT ELISE TOLD ME TODAY THAT SHE HOPES IT’S DURING LADIES FIGURE SKATING, BECAUSE THEN IT WOULD FEEL MORE LIKE SHE WAS AT THE OLYMPICS. IF YOU PLAN ON TRAVEL ANYTIME SOON…YOU’LL WANT TO LISTEN UP…

    I saw this commercial she was preparing for last night during the Olympics opening ceremonies. It was fantastic. Where is it on YouTube?

    As a resident of the southeast I’m so surprised suntrust is doing this nationwide ad, let alone one for a huge sporting event. This bank just operates in this region so it isn’t at boa, WF or usbank’s level. Heck the company ‘rooms to go’ has more of a nationwide reach yet airs its ads in the urban areas where it operates thru the local tv stations.
