Sadly, Justin did not participate in any of the three threads spawned from the Super Bowl dealing with commercials. We could probably take this to mean he didn't have a strong opinion either way (and may have only been hanging out in the Pro Wrestling forum?)

Super Bowl Ads - Random (The W)
Super Bowl Commercials - Football (The W)
super bowl commercial- AB 9/11 - reaction? - Random (The W)

The real meat is in the last thread - I'm amused to see that I thought it was "gay gay gay" back in 2002, but even going back to my post-9/11 Smackdown recap (slashwrestling.com), I formed an opinion pretty quick about going overboard about 9/11. I'm sure my opinion was influenced by Kim (who also posted in that third thread).

Actually, this is moving far into tangent land so I'll take it to another thread...

The thing is, it wasn't a simple message.

So that explains the data speed point: the flash mob's organizers are incompetent.

(Says the guy who didn't realize everyone else in the area was also in the mob until the 20th viewing.)

Yeah BUT...why were all those raincoat dudes there a half hour early anyway if they DID get the message?

Answering that question would imply that AT&T's ad agency put any thought into this commercial beyond "flash mob guy looks stupid".

I assumed the time change message was sent about two minutes before the dancing was to ensue. Everyone got there, took their positions, then their awesome super fast phones got the message to delay while Dancy Dave was left to jitterbug all by his lonesome.

Aww, I liked that one. What, Eric gave you the creeps too?

My new nominee for worst commercial would be the Marty Lempkin one (youtube.com) for Worx Energy. They take waaaaay too long on the infomercial parody. And then they go and list a bunch of stuff that makes it sound like a 5 hour energy or a Stacker 2 ripoff. Lame, lame, lame.

Huh, I didn't see that commercial once. Oh yeah, that's because NFL Red Zone Doesn't Do Commercials™.

I watched the preview last week with an eye towards subscribing anyway, and had the package bought before the day was over. For just an extra Abe Lincoln, that channel is an absolute steal.

Colin Cowherd was raving about RedZone on his show today, calling it the best sports viewing innovation pretty much ever. I still go with projecting the yellow first down line onto the screen.

We had the RZ Channel on one of the TVs, but it kept going to a game we already had on one of the other three TVs, so we just switched it back to a game.

The J.G. Wentworth commercial on the city bus with the opera theme. That whole company sounds like a big scam and their commercials are unbearable.

Ugh, is this going to happen every week I watch football? This week it's the Toyota Venza commercials that contrast self-centered and clueless people in their twenties with their parents who are out enjoying life (in their Venza).

I don't necessarily HATE the commercial itself, but the "people made of people" in the new Prius commercial sure are creepy.
