Football and the Commercial Connection

Unless you are living in Singapore or in upper Canada with the Inuit Indians, you probably are aware that the cold, hard and shiny Steelers beat our little red finches (Phoenix Cardinals) in a football game last night. As hard as our little 3 pounds birds tried to stretch their wings and fly to victory, we were denied. It feels a little like the big town bully just beat up the new girl in town, if you know what I mean. But it was entertaining to say the least.

I don't get why the commercials had to be subdued because the economy is tanking. I think they should have been the most outrageous or courageous because the economy is dreary. I definitely have a crush on the baby e-trader, though. He's my kind of guy. Throwing up all the time on the keyboard and all. And this must really be a sign that I'm old as dirt, because I am very bored and tired of the Budweiser/Horse commercials. In fact, anything with a polar bear, a horse, a Dalmatian or lizard type of animal should not be placed in any commercials this year.

"Okay, Beth", you say, "then what would be good in this dismal year for commercials"? Well, I like that fast photography like they have in the Planet Earth series and I bet not a lot of people have seen a tree going from green leaves, that turn a brilliant orange color, to falling down to the ground in 15 seconds. That would be cool.

Commercials that show people laughing for no apparent reason for a solid 30 seconds would work for me. The company could shoot their name across the screen at the end with a happy face symbol at the end.

Of course, I would never turn down a commercial with male models involved (just to make up for all the commercials with the lovely ladies). And they don't even have to catch chips in their mouth or take a shower. Maybe it's just a rugby practice.

Okay guys, what commercials do you want to see? Name a commercial that will make you feel better in this most awful of economic situations? The sky's the limit.......................................

Saaawwweeett....I'm first!! Hee...
anywho...I really hated the commercials...I had to pick up my boys mouths off the floor :)
As for what I'd like to see more of...hell, I don't know. I don't watch that much t.v. But, I like the idea of people laughing for 30 seconds...that would be fun.

I was a little disappointed in the commercials this year! No real STAND OUTS for me!

Like you, I totally loved the Superbowl two-babies in high-chairs at-computer advert. But now am having a senior moment. What company was it again, that they were advertising? Ameritrade? Schwab?

And I, too, was rooting for the Cardinals. So hoped it would go into overtime. Damn.

My condolences on your loss. It was a hell of a game, well fought on both sides.

I think I'd enjoy a commercial featuring death sentences to all those beer-commercial animals-- I'm as sick as you are of them.

Let's move on to a new concept, shall we?

I did love the commercial that started off with Bob Dylan. It was a warm fuzzy.

I am tired of the talking babies. Ever since the one commercial when the baby throws up, I can't watch them. I know everyone enjoyed it at the party we attended.
