The zebra ad was number 1 in my book, but nobody mentioned the hilarious (to me) Sierra Mist ad with the dog who kicked the fire hydrant lid open to cool down his master. Great stuff.
Without trying to delve into politics too much, I must address the pot commercial. Is it really the job of the beer companies to say that beer will impair your judgement? I don't think so. But it seems appropriate to point out that the use of ILLEGAL drugs can cause one's judgement to be impaired, and bad things CAN happen. That ad seems a lot easier to take than the "buying drugs funds terrorism" spot. Whatever position you take on marijuana, it seems reasonable for a group to warn the public as to what MIGHT happen if said drugs are used or abused.
"Can I get a hot dog?" "I...don't think so." GENIUS!
The call is from heroism; will you accept the charges?

Thanks to the exciting non-finish to RR 2K3, I have nothing to write about Spf here. Please go about your business as usual. Thank you.

Well, hell, considering Guru Zim's house is so darn close to the stadium, he probably put it up there himself the night before the game. Well done, Zim's!! :-)
(EDIT: See, told ya he was close!)

Originally posted by vspThe only part of the festivities I actively watched was the halftime show -- my wife likes Shania and No Doubt, so it was a definite tape-alert. (I flipped between my PS2 and the game a few times to check on the score afterwards.)
Shania == Geena Davis from "Transylvania 6-5000." Look it up. She also gets the Milli Vanilli Blatant Lip-Sync Award for the evening; not only was it obvious BEFORE the crowd shot where her lips weren't moving, but the vocal track on her second song was a direct lift from the "Blue Disc" ('world music') version of her new album. It scares me quite a bit that I recognized that.
No Doubt then popped up and said "Oh, you people wanted MUSIC!" Good for them -- they looked like they were having fun, and hearing actual live performances was a nice surprise. And STING put down the Tantric Yoga book long enough to think "Hey, I knew how to ROCK once upon a time." Who'da thunk it?
Lord Almighty is Shania Twain a joke. Could you Canadian folks take her back please? Ever since she was caught in a lie about her "Indian heritage" I haven't been able to stand her, and now her music is worse than ever.
Don't even get me started about Celine Dion singing "America" after her dalliance with Saddam.
Dixie Chicks rule.
Anyone notice the ABC "Ed Sullivan-ing" of Ms. Stefani at one point as she was gyrating next to Sting?

I liked the Terry Tate concept more when The Rock was "Nicotrel" on SNL. It was still funny as hell though.
I really loved the Zebra commercial as well as the Cast Away rip off.
So it was SNL that had a half time special this year. I had no idea that it was going to be on. Chalk it up to bad advertisement or that I haven't seen SNL in a few months. They must've done all their ads for the special on Saturday nights.
Overall, not that great a year for commercials. And nothing NOTHING will ever beat Michael Jackson getting his hair lit on fire.

Good thing she was on the Pre-Game show then, right?
I missed almost all the Pre-Game stuff which kind of made me mad, but I caught all the music stuff. The lipsynching doesn't bother me as much when they're doing something for TV, as long as they don't do it live.
So they emptied the stadium before the halftime show????? Just a question
If someone gets urinated upon do they get pissed off or pissed on?
When you say you had to reboot your computer a couple of times, what exactly do you meeeeean ? Did you manage a complete, graceful shutdown of the OS, or was there button-pushing &/or power-cycling involved?
