Connected For Life
Penn State University’s Nittany Lion statue flexes its muscles and leaps from its stone pedestal in a national television commercial promoting the school and its students as “connected for life.” The 30-second ad, which airs during televised Penn State athletic events, won an Emmy Award from the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. It earlier won a Telly Award.
