new model rocketry commercial

I'm watching the UK-U of L football game on ESPN and Evergreen Investments has an TV ad that shows a model rocket with its parachute out orbitng the
earth.....then it pans to a father and son looking up at it with an estes launch pad next to them .. with the voice over: performance exceeds expectations.. now thats a positive neat commercial!

Yeah, but how did they get the chute to deploy without the nose cone popping off?

The rocket was so well constructed, so well balanced, the ejection charge was so perfect.....that the nosecone popped off, and the shockcord snapped it right back into place!

Sweet -- a commercial that actually uses model rocketry in a positive, though humorous way. Usually when model rockets are used in commercials it's more like a Wile E. Coyote cartoon, with the model wreaking havoc and destruction.
