Is this for real? Seriously?

I could not believe what I saw on television the other day. I was watching the Eastern Conference Finals last week between the Cavs and Magic and I saw a commercial that I thought I would never see in my life. They talk about the Super Bowl ads and the ridiculous amount of money paid for those 30-second spots. Could it get more ridiculous? It can, and it did. Not that it cost more to run an ad during the basketball game or anything but rather what was aired during the basketball game. Now mind you, I don't watch much basketball anymore. I've been a Laker fan since I first started playing ball but I've never a fan of Kobe. The way he screwed Shaq out of L.A. and hasn't won since didn't help. So rooting for the Lakers but not wanting Kobe to win a ring kind of defeats the purpose of getting into it. So I don't watch much basketball on T.V. anymore. Now I know I'm not supposed to watch basketball on T.V. anymore.

During the game, a commercial very similar to this one, but better, came on. I was at the computer and heard Becky tell me that I had to rush out and see something. So I rewound for a bit and sat there with my jaw to the floor. It takes a lot to leave me speechless and this did it for at least 2 full minutes. I could not believe what I had seen until I checked the website myself. I know someone meant this to be serious but this has to be about the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life. If anyone is offended, watch it again and tell me that you didn't laugh at some point.

  1. yep seen them both. Isn't it weird that there must be that much of a market for them that it makes sense to buy a commercial in that high end tv market?
