I didn’t watch the game; I cancelled cable TV two years ago and never looked back. But I have noted some of the “buzz” that most of the ads debuted in the SuperBowl were just wretched.
- Nissan’s Ad apparently sums up their pitch as “Terrible Cars for Terrible People.”
- Nationwide laid a bummer on the entire country with its infamous “Dead Kids” ad. The company is apparently just trying to latch onto the nationwide trend of fanatical, obsessive-compulsive over-parenting; the endgame of which is apparently to seal children in ‘Safety Pods’ until the age of 26, so to spare them any potentially harmful contact with the real world.
- And then, of course, the rad fems must be pleased that both Always Tampons and T-Mobile released ads on the theme of “Girls Rule, Boys Suck.” Yes, the zeitgeist of our contemporary culture is exactly the same as what eight year old girls believe it should be.
As for the game itself…
