SuperBowl Commercials Suck
SuperBowl Commercials - Why I Hate Them
February 8, 2010
Sorry, but I hate all commercials; even SuperBowl commercials; especially SuperBowl commercials.
First of all, I don't like being sucked into something.
The popularity of commercials during the SuperBowl is proof positive that if the media tells people they like something, then they go ahead and like it. Every television network and ad agency and newspaper and conventional form of media, has been telling everybody for years that SuperBowl commercials are wonderful, and everybody likes it, and that watching SuperBowl commercials is the "in" thing to do. And that, and only that, is the reason why SuperBowl commercials are popular. SUCKERS!!!
Secondly, those stupid SuperBowl commercials ruin a perfectly good NFL football game.
I have not watched most of the SuperBowls BECAUSE of those stupid commercials. The game takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours longer than what an NFL football game usually is. This year I watched the last half of the SuperBowl, only because I woke up and did not feel like taking a longer nap.
Thirdly, I hate television commercials.
I set my DVR to automatically record my regular news shows so I can forward through the commercials. In fact, I spent the first half of this SuperBowl watching a couple of recorded news programs -which I watched without seeing any commercials.
Fourthly, I like watching NFL football.
I am not a huge sports fan, and the only sports I have time to watch is NFL football. I enjoy a good NFL game. . During the NFL season, the only television commercials that I consciously watch are the commercials that air during NFL football games during the regular NFL football season, because I enjoy watching what is happening in real time on the NFL football games. But no matter how much I enjoy watching NFL football, I hate the commercials enough to not watch the SuperBowl most of the time.
For the past few decades, all the media has been on a campaign to promote the popularity of SuperBowl commercials. With the threat of low-cost Internet advertising and the choice of 300 television channels to choose from, the SuperBowl commercial popularity is the one thing left that has been successful and profitable. The question I have is that if they had been telling everybody that eating spoiled food during the SuperBowl was the "in" thing to do, would everybody do that, too?
Did I mention that I do not like SuperBowl commercials? Of course, I have never watched one episode of American Idol or Survivor, either, so I know that I am not the one to follow if you want to know what people like.

Also, the Super Bowl half time show was nice - for a nursing home.
