Well the game yesterday turned out to be a lot better than I expected. It was a close one most of the game. Our party is filled with good cooks, so the food was great as always. And this year, no chairs were thrown and there was hardly any screaming at the TV.
In Super Bowl tradition, there were some good commercials. What I didn’t get was all the commercials with guys walking around in their underwear. There were at least three different companies selling stuff this year with guys walking around in their underwear. The only company I can remember off hand was Coke. I think the other one may have been Monster.com. Either way, I don’t want to see out of shape, middle guys (or girls for that matter) walking around in their whitey-tighties and granny-panties.
Regardless of all the new fun commercials, the commercial that had our Super Bowl party talking was for a local roofing company called John Beal. The commercial was so cheap and nothing short of corny, but that didn’t matter. Why? Because we couldn’t even hear what the commercial was saying because we were all screaming, “What the…? How in the hell did they get a spot on the Super Bowl.”
My friend who works in radio gave us the obvious answer, “Well they probably have a couple of local spots available.”
“Yeah we figured that Eienstien,” a friend yelled. “But how in the hell did they afford it, even being a local spot?”
I can tell you this much, it wasn’t because they spent a ton of money on production. So here it is in all its glory, the cheapest commercial of the Super Bowl. Enjoy.
