    that ferris bueller thing is just dismal. i don't want to see his flabby, middle-aged ass half-heartedly trying to recreate those scenes. why couldn't they have him do new stuff or something?

    Rooney was the principal of his generation.


    EDIT: also that ad is pretty sad.

    I find it hilarious that I clicked on that link and had to watch a Geico commercial before I could watch the commercial that I clicked on the link to see. Then, when it was done (thankfully), I was treated to a Flo, the Progressive Girl commercial.

    I am officially rethinking how I spend my life.

    When me & my pals see a good ad on Super Bowl Sunday, we of course enjoy it, and also talk **** about bad ads. However, I am so very happy that I now actually look forward to the actual game. It's much better that way*.





    *That is if your a sports fan.

    Why would you watch the Superbowl if you weren't a sports fan? Watching for the ads seems like the epitome of checking out as a culture. "Yes, I would love to let you market aggressively to me while I passively receive your nostalgic/humorous collections of images designed to make me think my desire for a new Subaru is my own thought, and not one being planted there by talking dogs."

    I'm sure there are those every year who may watch parts or the whole game just to see what the big deal is.

    1: Adblock Plus. You're welcome.

    2: One time a friend tried to watch the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer and the ad before it started was the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer.

    Thanks. But then I'd miss out on the hilarity.

    That's awesome. I have to say that the two commercials that sandwiched the Matthew Broderick commerical were superior in every way. none of them would be successful at getting me to change my purchasing habits, though.

    You know what's inherently sick? Watching a corporate-funded corporate money-making televised event for the corporate-funded corporate money-making advertisements within.

    Sorry, but there are three things I really genuinely hate:

    Corporations
    Television
    Corporate-owned professional sports teams



    I can dig the Olympics, but **** everything else...and I must include the insulting experience of watching Olympic sports on television. I know that's somewhat ironic.

    Also, how tone deaf is an ad about an actor playing hooky from his cushy job in this economic climate? Will people even notice?

    Irony: We are the most media-saturated culture in history, but we are also the most media-illiterate yet.

    It's a post like this that makes me wish we had a violin emoticon to use here on the boards; I am genuinely interested in your hatred (ie: WHY) of these things.

    Probably something to do with people being paid millions to run a pig skin up a field, while people in corporate offices rake in millions from advertising and concessions, while the fans pay exorbitant prices to sit in crummy seats and watch people getting paid millions of dollars run a pigskin up a field.

    Not all of the seats in a stadium are crummy. :p And yes, everyone involved is overpaid to an extent, but it's not like the event isn't valuable/doesn't deserve to rake in a ton of money. I don't care if people don't like sports, but it's got to be for good/solid reasons, not ridiculous ones ("Oh no, people making money! Corporations! Bad! Bad!").
