superblah... atleast the ads

I think we finally have to sound the death knell for superbowl commercials. Whereas there used to be an innovative exciting edge of humor and ridiculousness to the commercials (reaching their heyday about the same time as the internet boom), now they are getting stale and trite and repetitive. Yes, we get it. Beer, hot women. Now do something interesting with the beer or hot women. Or at least something funny or remarkable enough to warrant the million plus dollars for 30 seconds (I still remember etrade's advertisement 6 years back with two monkeys and an old man playing bongo drums with the tag line "well, we just wasted 1.6 million dollars. What do you do with your money). Now all we got was 5 razors on the new gillete... well, atleast there weren't any more viagra, cialis ads.

However the ad’s weren’t the worst thing about last night’s game. The hapless Ref’s take that title.

Oh, and a special shout to World's Fastest Indian for I think 3 ad buys. Let’s hear it for Indies playing with the big boys.
