Superbowl Commercials

I didn’t watch the Super Bowl. Somewhere after child bedtime I realized the game was on but I didn’t care enough to even turn it on. I didn’t look at social media at all last night, opting to go to bed at the first moment possible.

Today I see many people predictably talking about the commercials, their favorites, the best. This always mystifies me. Sure, some are more clever and enjoyable than others but so what? Focusing on the best commercial is like focusing on the gentlest ass-kicking. It’s still a beating, it’s still a commercial.

    So you deny that there’s any value at all in the art form of the modern television commercial?

    I deny that I care about that art form at all.

    Ah.  Understood.  I did not get that impression from the original post.

    Another analogy: the best commercial is like the most polite cold call. It’s the nicest form of a thing I don’t want in the first place. Even here where it is part of the show, I still don’t enjoy them.

    Agree on principal 100%. I despise sports and the NFL in particular for a variety of reasons but they do have the money to apply to most any problem, even when they are simply running like cowards to protect their own vested interests.
