"My name is Rachel Corrie and I ..."

Several times yesterday I heard a fine, affecting ad for the play, My Name is Rachel Corrie. The ad includes a short speech by director/writer Alan Rickman, an admiring quote from a prominent review, and ends something like this: "My name is Rachel Corrie is now playing at the so and so theater on such street in ..."

Now please forgive me, because this is really awful, but it IS the end of a politically fractious October, and I was really expecting to hear the ad end like this: "My name is Rachel Corrie and I approved this advertisement."
