Pepsi PepSuber Commercial

I don't know about you guys, but I had 4 tests today, so me and a bunch of friends just came back from Superbowl Monday. We managed to dodge the results and commercial water-cooler talk until the evening, which is both a success and a testament to how sad our lives have become.

The only reason I watch the Superbowl every year is for the commercials, and I like this one:
Pepsi PepSuber was the 2009 Pepsi Superbowl Commercial. I liked it because it was so ridiculously wrapped up in its own inside-jokey pop-referrence essence. To get it you had to have seen 1) MacGuyver 2) The SNL skit parodying MacGuyver, "MacGruber" 3) this parody parodying the parody. Someone in our group had watched none of those things, and was utterly confused. It's kind of a ridiculous idea to throw out such a low-budget looking-ad that is only intelligible to 50 people on a high-priced national TV spot, which is maybe why I liked it. Just plain irreverent.

In sum, I concluded that: 1) it's harder to get the smell of deep fried chicken off your clothes, than it is to get the smell of eau-de-cadaver-and-formaldehyde off your clothes (gross!) 2) The Cardinal's symbol looks like the 3rd ventricle of the brain. 3) Dont' watch sports after taking tests.
