Well, say instead of a TV advert, we contributed our ideas to the Viral
Video's project or something similar to make a channel on youtube, or even
both, if we're lucky, we could touch on subjects such as Ubuntu hour, and
ways to help improve your first time experience with Ubuntu.

And I guess we could at least try contacting canonical or dell, or some
other company, to see what response we get.
