Default Carnival AD misleading??

Back on Dec 6th, 2004 Carnivals' then President and CEO released a press release regarding a new ad campaign tagged "There are a million ways to have fun" The TV campaign featured four different commercials all set to the classic tune"Beyond the sea," made famous by recording artist Bobby Darin. An overlay features a male announcer, "On a Carnival cruise, at any one moment there are a million ways to have fun." I just completed my research and can only come up with 979,868 ways to have fun at any one moment on a Carnival cruise. Before I get flamed on here, i'm aware that theres a new ad campaign already in progress.

You haven't done enough researching.
