Army’s New Recruitment Drive: Maybe Fight Aliens!

The partnership with Twentieth Century Fox puts Army recruiters on the front lines of the promotional push behind “Independence Day: Resurgence,” the sequel set to hit theaters June 24.

The campaign launched last week with an Army-produced television commercial featuring the proud father of an ESD soldier, a veteran of the first alien encounter, he explains over soft music that the “planet is safer because she’s defending it” before viewers are directed to Join ESD.

    Would be a nice change though from fighting each other, not keen on fighting aliens but you know one step at a time.

    I noticed the alien reference to the movie Independence Day 2 the first time I saw the commercial. They just used to to add to Army recruitment. Has nothing to do with us actually fighting aliens…. Yet.
