Super Bowl Commercials

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on February 6, 2010


There is much talk about the super bowl, and the commercial fest that goes with it. An ad, starring a gator, that discusses abortion, will play. It is too bad the procedure can not be done retroactively.

One ad that will not play is for the California political campaign of Carly Fiorina. The lady is running for the Senate seat currently held by Barbara Boxer. No, the issue is not about boxers or briefs. The issue is name calling by Mrs. Fiorina about her opponent. The other guy is called a FCINO…fiscal conservative in name only. Fiscal Conservative is a name for borrow and spend types who support wars eight time zones away.

The ad is very, very strange, even by California standards. It shows a bunch of sheep milling around. Some of the sheep are chewing, while the other guy is talking. Then, a human, wearing a very poor wolf in sheep’s clothing costume, appears. PG is not sure what the point of all this is.

Two versions of the ad are attached to this post. The first is the original, in all its disjointed glory. The second uses a Pink Floyd song about animals as the soundtrack, and is an eerie fit.

Carly Fiorina (born Cara Carleton Sneed) would seem to be a case of a person who succeeds by failure. Once they get name recognition, some people keep on getting second chances. If this ad is any indication, the campaign is more of the same.
