The GM spot featuring the depressed robot might be funny to 20-somethings on Madison Avenue, but I’ll bet it’s not very amusing to the 66,000+ Americans losing their jobs at GM, Ford, and Daimler-Chrysler.
The Bud “slapping” spot: Stupid. Another concept that the kids in Creative thought was hilarious. Memo from a parent: It’s not.
Going back to the pre-game show: Katie Couric’s guest spot carried with it a strong whiff of desperation. “Please watch CBS News! Please watch CBS News!”
Feh. Katie looked as out of place at the Super Bowl as a Cinnamon Dolce Latte at Ditka’s.
