ADVERTISERS were winners too -- at least, the ones that bothered to advertise. The latest estimate is that this was the most-watched Super Bowl in History.
That's a lot of people watching the ads, folks. And because the contest was so close, people tuned in for the whole game. Too bad too many companies didn't feel like advertising. They missed a great opportunity to promote their products.
The biggest loser of the Super Bowl game, though, was no doubt Ed McMahon. Holy cow, times are really bad when you are reduced to doing low-budget commercials for Cash4Gold.com. It's even worse for NBC when the only way to fill your spots is to sell time to riffraff advertisers like them.
Who the heck are they?? This ad reminds me of those cheesy Oliver Jewellery ads that run on Toronto TV.
"I'll buy your jewellery! Oh yeaaaaah!!!"
Man, I still miss Toronto.
