Super Bowl Commericials – A Missed Opportunity
Thus far, I haven’t seen a commercial worth spending the $2.5 million to air. I think the biggest loser so far is GlaxoSmithLine – the maker of Geritol vitamins. They should have sponsored the Rolling Stones halftime show. Or better yet, the Rascal scooter people. I guess that just makes too much sense, though.
The show isn’t bad, but I’m more impressed with the amount of work that it took to get that stage, lighting, and effects set up in 6 minutes, and then removed from the field after the show in another 6 minutes. I even caught a glimpse of a timer next to one of the audio monitors on stage that is used to keep track of the Stones’ 12 minute allotment. A lot of planning and money went into these 12 minutes.
Alright, let’s get back to the game between these two teams that I don’t give a rat’s ass about.
