    Default The Hulu Ad

    Am I the only person who thought that commercial was hysterical?

    After defending the halftime music I'm tempted to jump the fence here. Yes, I thought the Hulu ad was better than some others but that is only because the bar has dropped so low. I just don't think the ads live up to the hype in general any longer.

    I think the ads have for the most part lost the edge or creativity that was what made SB commercial watching the secondary highlight it's become. Everyone is just trying to do the 'anti-ad' these days.

    One of these days someone is going to shoot a SB ad with 1 camera, 1 actor/spokesperson, and the product. ...and the ad will be deemed 'brilliant'. Then maybe the writers can go back to square one and find some new ideas.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I just found it hilarious because they imply actors are aliens and the tagline at the end was so ridiculous I couldn't help but laugh.

    The best ad was the one second high life commercial. All commercials should be liek that.

    I thought the Doritos commercial was hilarious, myself.

    Add the fact that they're from Indiana, and a few of them that put it together are BSU alums, and it's all gravy.

    My friends and I were laughing for a good 30 seconds after that one. It was the best out of the bunch.

    We also got a kick out of the flowers that told the woman "nobody wants to see you naked." Definitely a good line.

    ALEC BALDWIN!

    Lol, I liked it. I thought it was funny that they aired that commercial in between like 4 NBC/GE commercials, and Mr. Baldwin portrays a GE executive in 30 Rock.

    I love the fact that if you go to Hulu, you can watch the SB commercials but only after seeing an ad. Even the Hulu commercial that's on Hulu has a "sponsor."

    So you have a SB ad that directs you to a website where you watch an ad in order to watch an ad.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
