Several years ago, in the wake of the film National Treasure, the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts created a series of commercials for radio and TV, featuring actor Richard Easton as Benjamin Franklin, with the inspired question at the end of each one, "Is there greatness in you?''
The commercials were so effective, that several grand lodges, including Indiana, adapted the spots (with the blessing of the GL of Massachusetts, and with the original actor and production company) for their own states.
A new series three of inspiring videos has been released, again featuring Easton as Brother Franklin, but these are more directed to Masons themselves, along with explaining to non-Masons who and what we are about, in a longer format.
