But that's where I think we saw it differently. You saw it as self gratification. I saw it as women feeling and advertising that they were feeling very passionate.
My initial impression wasn't that they were getting it on alone.
Also, until the subject came up, I didn't see either of the ads as particularly political though some rightwing anti-PETA commentators took it that way and some apparently see the Catholicvote ad that way. And of course there are some who oppose the message from either.
I can appreciate Phoenix's frustration with Super Bowl mania too though it isn't so intense out here in the desert. Maybe its good to have something positive to focus on when there is so much misery re the recession right now, but it does sometimes to be really overhyped. And expensive.
Was watching the early morning news this morning, and they said last year a 30-second advertising slot during the Super Bowl was 2.7 million and this year it is an even 3 million though they thought only about half of the advertisers paid the full price and some got deals. I guess those advertisers get their money's worth but that seems like an awful lot. Especially for a couple of charitable organizations if NBC had accepted the ads from Catholicvote and PETA.
