Super Bowl Ads!

Everybody loves those wild 'n wacky Super Bowl ads, right? With this in mind yours truly, the intrepid Professor Batty, sat down Sunday night to review the best and the brightest of them. I started a bit late but knew that every year this spectacular always features a consumer's cornucopia of commercials. I was sure this year would be no exception.

First up was a Doritos™ ad, with a young man on a busy downtown street who is granted magical powers by eating a Doritos™ corn chip. He uses this power to strip an unsuspecting woman down to her underwear.

The next ad was for GoDaddy.com, a domain name provider. Three teen-aged boys watch interactive porn on a computer which, now that it is connected to GoDaddy, enables them to have control over first a willing woman, then an unwilling one, forcing them to shower naked on their website.

I turned it off.

The Super Bowl people don't care if I did, I'm past the age of their prime market demographics. I have bought Doritos in the past, however, I don't think I'll be doing that anymore. If you have to sexually humiliate women to sell your product, you might want to rethink your business model. GoDaddy is just trying to legitimatize porn (which probably is their business model), assault-based porn in particular. They are crimminals.

Yet another reason I almost never watch professional sports.

I agree, I am glad that neither Kip nor I wasted our time watching. For every step we take forward as a culture, it feels like we take two steps back.

I objectified the Boss during half time. I had to get up and turn myself off. Sorry.

lab munkay~ The Boss felt that he needed to replace the Rock in your affections.

They're awfully homophobic, too, in addition to being horrible towards women, of which I am one and therefore care a whole lot! I'm glad someone besides me noticed!
