In New Jersey, on the local channels, they would play commercials for Jamaica tourism at least 50 times a day. All through my childhood I would play trips to Jamaica over and over in my head. I would get maps out of National Geographic and look at pictures, dreaming of snorkeling and playing in the sun. Then one night they were showing The Harder They Come on TV and my romantic notions of Jamaica went out the door. I have still never been, but these commercials still make me smile.
