Star Wars vs. Football

Leave a comment


On last night’s @midnight, Chris Hardwick claimed that he was tricked into watching football to see the Star Wars trailer and then compared it to a Hungry Man commercial airing during Project Runway. I must take exception to this, because while there are plenty of general differences between the football and Star Wars fandoms, they are both so popular that they have plenty of crossover. It is more like a commercial for a Christmas special airing during a Halloween special. Those are probably the 2 most popular American holidays (maybe Thanksgiving is second or first, but Christmas and Halloween are definitely both top 3), but they are definitely significantly different. One’s more of a friends holiday, the other a family holiday. Some Halloween lovers probably hate Christmas, and vice versa. But there are folks who love ’em both.


For me, football and Star Wars were two of my earliest fandoms. I’ve grown a little disillusioned with both, though, thanks to concussions and rah-rah tribalism in the case of the former and Jar-Jar Binks in the case of the latter. But when I see something like the stupidest ever trick play from the Colts, I gotta keep watching. And when I behold BB-8 rolling along, I’m like, “I guess you better get me a ticket.”

Weirder is better, and so are surprises.

1. Squarespace – “Om” – My takeaway from Super Bowl XLIX: We’ll all be better off if we just let Jeff Bridges lead us in meditation.


Best 2014 Super Bowl Commercials

I am just about 100% positive that halftime commercials did not use to be included in the USA Today Ad Meter.  Now, it appears they are included (at least for the most part).  Well, regardless, I did consider the halftime commercials.  I pretty much had to this year.

EDIT: I’m sorry, I meant to put the ironic, yet sincere “Make Love, Not War” by Axe at Number 1.  Please place everything else down one slot.

1. Honda – “Hugfest” – Don’t ever stop hugging, Fred.

2. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee – I’ll just quote @Seinfeld2000: “Honestly was that a dream or was sienfeld realy just on TV”

3. Radio Shack – “Phone Call” – The perfect dramatization of a classic joke.

4. Budweiser – “Puppy Love” – Not particularly clever, but there was a puppy.

5. H&M – “Beckham” – This one speaks for itself

Honorable Mention: The Bud Light “Epic Night” spots felt like a missed opportunity for such a cool idea, but at least Reggie Watts was in them.
