So, I’ve been sort of watching the Super Bowl on and off from the kitchen (I’m cooking Swedish meatballs, if you must know). Â And when I say I’m watching the Super Bowl, I mostly mean that I’m watching the ads, which range from pop culture dreck and emotional manipulation (which makes me feel like an alien because I don’t usually watch commercial tv and completely don’t understand it), to occasionally funny random non sequitor humor, to moments of sheer brilliance.
This Bud Light ad stood out, for me:
Before you even start nitpicking, yes, there are many inaccuracies in it. Astronomers don’t wear lab coats, the telescope is used incorrectly, they were too stupid to realize that the asteroid was the size of a marble and therefore couldn’t destroy the planet…I know.
Regardless of all that pedantic crap, I think it’s kind of awesome that we now have a Super Bowl ad showing scientists having fun.
