Super Bowl Commercials

with one comment

Most of them sucked, really.  The Audi commercial with the Green Police offered an insight into America’s future.  I’ll not be surprised when this actually happens.  In a lot of places it’s already being back-doored.  Here in Austin, TX you can’t sell your house until the City gives you the “OK” that it’s up to certain green codes.  And don’t get me wrong, I am all for recycling and try to do it as much as I can, but being forced to do it at the barrel of a gun isn’t my cup of tea.  It’s akin to many of the taxes that we are forced to pay.  It’s sickening.

So get ready America.  The Green Police will be coming for you in a few years.

Environmentalism is the new Socialism.

Oh, and thanks to the gubment for spending millions on the ad for the Census…and Chrysler!

This song still gets to me.  Every once in a while a band ends an album perfectly and this is one of those times.  The last 35 seconds of this has been giving me goosebumps for over 20 years now.
