So why did most of them just suck?

It's interesting that the two Doritos ads were the best.

I feel like second half ads are a gamble.  If the game is really good, people might be glued to their seat.

I feel like the second quarter is where you want to advertise. People have mostly settled in by that point, and regardless of how the game starts, people will still be watching: if it's close then it's exciting, if it's lopsided there's still time to turn it around and people will want to see if they do.

The ratings were actually really good for this game. I think a lot of people kept watching just to see how bad it would get for Peyton, like a car accident you just can't turn away from.

Men are from Omnicom Publicis 9, women are from Omnicom Publicis 7.

That would explain why most of them were boring and just unremarkable white noise.

I skipped the game to chat with people in an art stream. I feel like it was a better use of my time.

That's exactly why I stuck around.
