I’m a fan –
of the commercials!
But maybe you’ve already seen them. Stuart Elliott writes in his article for the New York Times – Before the Toss, Super Bowl Ads – that many have already aired in the social media. This year the element of surprise was quashed by YouTube and Facebook.
My favorite commercial is always the Cydesdales, but in Canada the commercial has no horses – watch it here.
Denzel Washington’s character in Unstoppable had just received his pink slip from the train company, but he reversed course and chased down a runaway train anyway. It was just the right thing to do.
I have neighbors who tracked down the owner of the 1971 Superbowl ring found in the ocean. They could have kept it, but returning it was just the right thing to do.
Inspirational? Motivational? Modern fairy tales? Makes for good stories too.
