super bowl

I don't watch TV and competitive sports in general bore me.  Combining the two means that the Super Bowl holds about as much interest for me as lint. We seem to get invited to bowl parties each year and the only thing that used to be good was the commercials.

But I'm just realizing over the last 3 years I can't recall a single good ad. They have suffered in quality. They've been bereft of it. What was that shit this year? The LG ad in particular stuck out as being cringeworthy. The only explanation I can conjure up is that the ads are so expensive now that they're created via committee. And because of the expense, companies are forced to play it extremely safe.

So now I'm basically left to enjoy the vienna sausages.
