I’m not the first person to point out that getting a potential Super Bowl commercial turned down by the broadcasting network has become something of a badge of honor for some companies (I’m looking at you, GoDaddy). And so in that vein, here’s ‘Clothing Drive,’ an ad with obvious black-bar-styled nudity (SFW) that never had a prayer against the CBS censors. My favorite part about it is the office prude character, who obviously wants no part of this. Well done, formerly American beer that’s not Miller High Life. Well done, indeed. –LiveLeak.
This is just a general message to the internet in general: the spoof Tim Tebow ads that you have been pushing out over the last week have, for lack of a better word, sucked. STEP IT UP, INTERNET. I don’t want to start passing off clips from action flicks released in 2004 as MMA posts. Again.This ad up here isn’t bad; there’s plenty of swearing in it and the protagonist has a pretty fair twang, but IT’S A MINUTE LONG! WHO HAS THAT KIND OF TIME?! There’s not even a wire coat hanger to be found in it anywhere!
Do I have to do EVERYTHING on the internet? Here’s a little advice: STOP PLAYING UP THE CRAZY CHRISTIANS ANGLE. Crazy Christians are not funny. They’re SCARY. They’re the old man with the respirator in the back of the movie theater. I’m waiting for one of them to stab me in the neck with an elephant tusk, and then justifying my murder by CLAIMING IT WAS THE WILL OF JESUS! Does THAT sound funny to YOU?
I want a solid, funny 30-second Tebow takedown. Show some leadership, internet. Show some of those intangibles. You can still get better every day and put together a solid performance at week’s end, unlike, you know, that other guy. You’re officially on notice. Get to it.
My mild dislike for Jim Nantz is quickly developing into full-fledged hatred. Not only will he be co-hosting the "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials 2007" with the lovely and talented Daisy Fuentes (#24 on the KD Dream-Mistress List), but he recently agreed with the two-week hiatus between Championship Sunday and the Super Bowl.
“As a fan, I used to hate the two-week lead-in,” CBS play-by-play man Jim Nantz said in a teleconference call Tuesday. “But now, I don’t really see anyway around it. It seems everyone needs that extra week to prepare for everything that goes into the game."
Do you need an extra week? I sure as hell don't. I think I've heard enough of how much Manning and Urlacher respect each other. Nantz is a Fred Couples wannabe who funds his golf habit by kowtowing to Billy Packer and every network executive that crosses his path. Can we please have Vern Lundquist and Bill Raftery call the Final Four this year? Wouldn't you love to hear "Sammy Mejia with the kissss!" rather than "Great recognition of the zone by Coach K, don't you think Billy?" -KD
