I want the Pats to lose but wait that would make Eagles fans happy so I want the Eagles to lose but wait that would make Pats fans happy so I want the Pats to lose..................................​.........................

The most overrated team? How can you be overrated when you consistently deliver? When your 40-yr-old QB is in his eighth Superb Owl and has already won five?

/Not a Pats fan, but come on

What are you on about Subby... if anything, the Eagles are underrated.

I just want to see the conclusion to Bud Light's "Dilly Dilly" saga.

Captain Steroid: I just want to see the conclusion to Bud Light's "Dilly Dilly" saga.


It is the saga that'll never end
It just goes on and on, my friend
Some people started watching it
Not knowing what it was
And they'll continue shouting
DILLY DILLY just because
It is the saga that'll never end...

I raise you this Chinese ad:

Dr. Ellen Reviews a Hilarious Infomercial
Youtube 4D35hkAar3o

Search "Chinese corset commercial" to see the whole 5 minutes.  I don't know why You Tube put an age restriction on it, since you don't see anything worse than what's in the clip Ellen showed.

I'm really only interested in the articles.
 
2018-02-04 04:01:08 PM  
Oh God, you people who say "The commercials are the best part!". I don't even give a shiat about football but Christ, Madison Avenue has you by the balls. "I'm going to run out and buy Pepsi because I never heard of it before but there's a CGI otter telling me to!".
 
2018-02-04 04:56:20 PM  
Okay, that Hyundai commercial was pretty good. :-)
 
2018-02-04 05:01:32 PM  
That was a rather pathetic Pizza Hut commercial.  I guess that's why it was on pregame.

Westworld trailer
Han Solo trailer
Mission Impossible trailer

fark the game

That ebates "commerical" turned my stomach.
/pbbbbbbbbt
 
2018-02-04 05:31:27 PM  
We already saw the best commercial they are going to show a few days ago when Missy Elliott dropped it early on Twitter, so hard pass.
 
2018-02-04 05:54:13 PM  
Odds that Bud Light does a "Philly Philly!" bit early in the game?
 
2018-02-04 05:57:46 PM  
Television remotes were made for THIS reason. I've not seen a commercial or halftime in 25 years.

Stop trying to sell me shiat. I buy what I want, not what you try to make me buy.

And get the fark off my lawn.

WTF was that HQ commercial with the freaking out woman?

The Amazon commercial has been my favorite.

If Belichick had the Eagles roster, it'd be a slaughter. Be thankful it'll be closer than it could be.

The "HQ Trivia" show/app/thing/cult for iPhone and Android.

That was a really crappy commercial. I was left confused about what was being advertised. For all I knew, it was a lottery commercial.

Oh, agreed. I would still have no clue except my brother-in-law and his fiancee were into it when I saw them over the holidays.

I think I just saw it mentioned in a podcast when it launched for Android.  I like trivia, so I play it most days. The hosts are mostly obnoxious. Never gotten past question 8 or so myself.

You don't have to buy whatever it is the commercial is selling. You could just enjoy something clever and/or funny.

Mission Impossible, still? Wow.


I don't mind see more of Rebecca Ferguson doing super spy stuff, so I approve of this.

Creative? Sometimes. Clever, never. Deceptive, always, and that's the problem.

Sprint doing a weird ad that pretends to be super smart while assuming the viewer doesn't know the difference between reliability and coverage.

Dr. Oz for fascist Turkish Airlines. This my shocked face.

See now I thought it looked awful aside from the Empire parts.

That Queen remix/make kicks ass.  I dig it.

dougermouse: That Queen remix/make kicks ass.  I dig it.


I think it was just the fast version of We Will Rock You.  It's on a couple live albums and a studio version was released last year.

Sorry, the Doritos commercial is better than the Dew commercial. Dinklage!

Pretty much this. You can laugh at how desperate the companies have vecome to sell you shiat, or even give points for style on their latest schemes, without rushing out to consume it. That's the beauty of propaganda awareness: when you know you're being manipulated, it loses most of its hold over you. Not all, it's true, but most.

So THAT'S where the "The game's tied" gif came from

Is the NBC Sports streaming feed going through a dial up line or are Russian bots taking all of the bandwidth?
 
2018-02-04 07:45:50 PM  
is there an ad schedule published ahead of the game so we know who got screwed with dead air?

Cloverfield is already listed on Netflix and available right after the game.
