In the advertising world, producing a commercial that runs during the Super Bowl is like, well, winning the Super Bowl.

Die.

That's a little harsh. I'm sure in your career, there is some project or goal you'd love to accomplish.

That ad cracked me up, although I had no clue what product it was advertising the next day.

Okay, "Die" may have been a bit harsh and I apologize. Marketing people serve an important purpose. They probably exhale carbon dioxide, vital to all manner of plant life.

Yeah, I despise commercials for the most part, but the ones for the super bowl are worth watching. They are creative and have a high production value, which in turn, makes watching the super bowl a good time. It's tradition.

I do share your disdain for the other 364 days of the year, though.

Who needs to watch the fark'n super bowl to see the commercials? Wake up, hit brunch, go shopping, fark your boyfriend, hit the bars, get drunk, hit on the bartender, fark the bartender, pass out in some strangers room, and then watch the commercials the next day while recovering from a horrible hangover with some guy whose name you can't remember.

I watch the super bowl for the game, and the commercials are an added bonus.

"I'm gonna get fired for this," a panicked Cochran thought at the time. "I'm gonna lose my job, I'm gonna have to move, I'm gonna have to start over. I have undone all of this in one stupid click."

Not so, said his boss, Richards Group founder Stan Richards.

"You don't get fired for making a mistake," said Richards of his agency. "You accept mistakes, you accept going in a wrong direction, you accept taking risk, and then living with the consequences of that."


Hey, look, a man who understands management.

Yeah, most of the time the reply-all is a bad thing. They mostly seem to happen at work for broad distributions. I wrote a little Outlook script to count the number of recipients but I got one mass mailing the other day (quickly recalled) that caused my script to run way too long. So I rewrote it. Turns out this guy, an offshore contractor, sent his e-mail message to 4800 unique mailboxes.

Good times.

Don't get me wrong, there are good ones out there, but the ratio of good to bad makes me appreciate my dvr.

I was really impressed. That's a good ad for his company in and of itself.

And then there's the involuntary reply-all. Back when Outlook was easily (more easily, rather) hijacked by attachment viruses, there was one email that had only the subject "See Anna Kournakova Naked - Pictures in Email." If you opened it up, there was nothing inside (despite the little paperclip icon). The virus was launched, it read your entire in-box, out-box and contact list and compiled a list of email addresses it found, and then sent the same email to all of them.

When I saw it in my in-box, I thought to myself "oh boy, here we go..." and sure enough, my in-box started filling up with replicas of the email. Hundreds of them, and each one came from an employee who wanted to see Anna Kournakova naked (and was too stupid to realize that clicking on a virus-laden email was not the way to do it). And ladies, before you start chiming in with "the reason this worked is because men are pigs," I should mention that about half of those involuntary reply-all emails came from chicks.

To which I say "niiiiiiiice."

Sooooo, monumental break-through for this guy, then! He hit "reply all", and it set in motion a sequence of events that ultimately lead to him getting his ad on the superbowl!!!!eleventy

...just like the year before

Yep. That's why Mugato said "die" and not "der" or "das".
