I know my struggle doesn't even come close to being the same, but I can't help but to hear this famous quote (as paraphrased by Al Pacino) over and over in my head today.
Re: The Super Bowl. The only Super Bowl commercial that seemed special was the 10 second Late Show promo with Dave and Oprah. It's like companies didn't even try this year to make anything seem like an event.
I wanted to like that Budweiser commercial with the dog who was down on his luck, but they destroyed it with the CGI crap at the end. It could have worked along the lines of that donkey commercial they've run the last couple of years, but I really, really hate it when they use computers to manipulate the expressions of animals.
One last thing. My local CBS station kept running this promo for their newscast all through the game, which, you know, has the largest audience of any television show ever. You'd think that if you're going to promote some big story during the biggest event of the year you could at least have the promo people spell simple words properly.
That should say "Secret Spy Signals". And yet that spelling error kept running over and over and over again. Why would I watch your story about secret spy signals when you can't even spell it correctly? Morons.
