Mutual of Omaha’s 2013 Aha Moment Tour Comes to North Platte

May 6th, 2013
Everyday Americans Get Chance at Thirty Seconds of Fame

Mutual of Omaha is taking its popular Aha Moment Tour back on the road this summer, visiting 20 cities to collect real aha moments — life-changing moments of hope and inspiration — from real people across America.

Traveling more than 7,300 miles, four crewmembers will tour in a custom built 34-foot Airstream trailer designed as a mobile video recording studio. Participants who share their personal aha moments may be featured in a new 30-second television ad, which will begin airing in spring 2014.
In its three-year run, the tour has captured more than 3,000 people sharing their aha moments, with the videos shared socially and posted to the campaign website at http://www.mutualofomaha.com/aha. Each previous tour culminated in a month-long online public vote to determine which stories will be featured in Mutual of Omaha’s nationwide television advertising campaign. Nearly 40 commercials have been produced and aired since the campaign’s inception in 2009.

This year’s tour will kick off in Sacramento, Calif., May 6-8 and will visit 20 cities in 20 states through early August. The complete tour cities and schedule are as follows:
