I don’t need to see risqué commercials during the Super Bowl, nor do I much care about the halftime show. But I can only assume that Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake are the root cause of this year’s debacle billed as commercials. My rough estimate is that, of the total aired, I viewed 50% talking animals, 40% violence, 8.7% CBS promos, 1% suicide, 0.2% GoDaddy breasts, and 0.1% funny/interesting. Wonderful. Next year, maybe a little creativity. Or just go ahead and give us 75% talking animals and 25% network promos.
I’m beginning to wonder if Mike judge knows something.
P.S. The amateur-created Doritos commercial, aired early in the game, was the only ad worth my time. The rest, particularly every ad from Chevy, stole time from my life that I will never retrieve.
P.P.S. Yep, I noticed the phallic homage from Prince during the halftime show. As I mentioned, normally I don’t care about the halftime show, but I watched last night because of Prince. I’m glad I did, because he’s always amazing. But the phallic silhouette was a subtle middle finger in the middle of an otherwise Disneyfied crapfest.
