Prilosec Sunday

This blog is on Monday hiatus due to a large ingestion of cheese and chips and salt and fat and a little bit of beer.  Go Packers!

And, just to throw, some pop culture in, I loved the ad for the Passat with the little Darth Vader, and I also thought the Eminem ad for Detroit was pretty damn awesome.  I know it was for Chrysler, but really?  The City of Detroit should be giving Eminem a key and a KISS Greatest Hits CD, because even though I know Detroit is about a lot more than Eminem, that ad actually gave me chills a bit.  I also liked his Brisk commercial.  It's interesting that he hasn't really ever whored himself out to advertising, and now he ends up in two Superbowl commercials, and they were both pretty spot-on with his personality.  Talk about owning your brand!  What were your favorite ads? 

I thought the Peas kicked it at halftime, I loved the lighting, and the whole thing was great except for the Sweet Child O Mine bit, which had me cringing just a little.  I love you Fergie Ferg, but that part was not a keeper.  And you are with Josh Duhamel, so grinding against Slash is not convincing.  I know what you snack on at home honey, and it ain't a whiskey-fueled middle aged guitarist.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, I'll be back when the Prilosec kicks in.

Hmm, I agree I thought the Peas did a great job. Although Fergie's "remix" with Slash wasn't a hit, It was however a good move. I was excited when he came up through the stage. He's looking a lil old though.

Not related to the post - I missed the Superbowl as I'm on the other side of the world - but just to let you know that the ad space at the bottom of you blog just offered me a Kingfisher Airlines (India) credit card. Guess they caught my location and targeted the ad accordingly.

Whoa Lani, that's pretty wicked. I do notice on W Friday that the ads down there tend to be waxing/manscaping/personal space related. Does the Internet watch me in the shower?
