YES. THE YO GABBA GABBA CHARACTER WHO LOOKS LIKE A MARITAL AID IS NOW SHILLING FOR KIA MOTORS: Open post-Season Ending Big Game discussion thread. Can anyone locate the Carrie Underwood anthem length or Townsend windmill data? (The latter number was high, but what a lousy, joy-thwarting performance.)
As for the football, be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. Goethe sid that.
added: Bill Carter (who else?) on how the Letterman/Leno/Winfrey ad was done; Stuart Elliott reviews the ads, as do James Poniewozik and AdAge's Bob Garfield, who gives top marks to Audi's anti-green green car ad, the Dodge Charger daily affirmation and the FloTV Nantz/lingerie ad.
added further: Betty White and Abe Vigoda FTW in the 22nd Annual USA Today Ad Meter, marking the second straight year without Anheuser-Busch winning. Alice in Wonderland topped the movies on a disappointing night for film ads (where was my Toy Story 3 or Iron Man 2?), which means that I believe Scott is a repeat winner for our Super Bowl pool, having predicted a Saints win with Brees MVP, a relative high number of Townsend windmills and Carrie Underwood clearly going over 1:42 with the Anthem.
breaking!, and eventually we'll have a new post up on something today: Megan Fox used a thumb double. And Bill Simmons has a second half diary: "Let's be honest: The Denny's free Grand Slam sounds fantastic until you're actually eating it. It's like getting a free Thai massage or a free DVD of 'John From Cincinnati.'"
