Monday Bloody Monday

          First off, we officially have over 200 followers! This is incredible to us! So we must say, thank you, sincerely, to everyone who reads our ramblings and feeds the illusion that our opinions matter. As you feed our egos, the monster only grows stronger (is it just me or does that guy look way too comfortable with that monster?).
           Anyways, the Superbowl has come and gone, and the Packers proved they can win a Super Bowl without Brent Favre and his wily penis. I have nothing against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but admittedly, I'm not a fan of Ben Roethlisberger and his penchant for sexual assaults. I don't understand it, really. How is it that a man this devilishly handsome doesn't have throngs of beautiful fans throwing themselves at his feet?
            Kidding aside, I was pleasantly surprised by the ads. A few of them were actually enjoyable. As some of you know, I drive an Audi, so now I look like an Audi fanboy because I love the commercial they put on during the Superbowl. But it was clever, and a lot of fun.

             The other commercial I liked was the Bridgestone tire commercial about in office e-mails. As a former white collar cube monkey, I find a lot of humor in this.


            
               What commercials did you guys like?
               Also, while I'm at it, I'll just say the halftime show was not great. At all. The audio was terrible, mics kept going in and out, and overall it just sounded clunky... but, with that in mind, you have to admit it was more um, interesting? than more recent years' geriatric snoozefests. More importantly, though, it reminds me of a great story about Will.I.Am that definitely bears sharing.
                My mother-in-law cleans the top floor suites at Mandalay Bay in Vegas. She's a very sweet Mexican lady with a hard Spanish accent, but she's very sharp, very funny, and very bold in what she does, reminding me a little of Consuela from Family Guy (in a good way).
                A while back she was cleaning rooms when a black man in his pajamas came up to her asking if he could be let back into his room. It was Will.I.Am. He had forgotten his room key, and didn't want to be photographed by the paparazzi in his PJs. Being the bold and musically trendy woman she is, my mother-in-law, a big fan of his, started busting his balls. He asked, "Come on, you know who I am, right?" and she jokingly asked, "I don't know, who are you? Are you someone important?" I mean, Jesus. I don't even know if *I* could have the balls to say that to a music superstar.
                Anyways, she let him back into his room, and told him that she's a big fan of his music. She listed a lot of the songs that she liked, but then made a bit of an oopsy. She told him that she loved his song 'Green Light,' and that it was one of her favorites.
               Will.I.Am laughed, grabbed his acoustic guitar, and played and sang 'Green Light' for her while still in his PJs. And then he gave her an autograph. Later, when she came home from work, she told my fiance Meli the story, only for Meli to say holy shit, you know that's not even his song, right? That's John Legend's song.
               Oops.
               What a cool sport, though. I don't have an opinion of Black Eyed Peas one way or another, but I've just got to say, he could have very easily been a dick about it. Instead, he was really humble about everything and so accommodating. I admire that. He seems like a super cool guy, and I only hope, should I ever become rock star of the literary world, that I could have that same kind of attitude. And if I can't, I just hope I can look good in those awful skinny jeans.

Stay classy, friends,
Bryan

    No Superbowl/commercials for me, I was gaming with the cousin to keep him occupied.

  2. That's an awesome story! But holy hell. Your mother in law has some guts!

    I wouldn't treat a celebrity differently from anyone else, but teasing one is something else entirely!

  15. Cool story bro... I like it when celebs show that they're just regular people.
    Over here we had all the commercials replaced by some brit commentator :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Are you kidding? The Darth Vader Passat one got me. Worth every penny of the 3 mil or more they spent on it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow! The people you meet wearing sexy black PJs. Love the story.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I loved the Darth Vader commercial. And the bud light "home improvement" one. Freaking hilarious!

    And we watched the new Portlandia OnDemand for the halftime show. SUCK IT BEP's!

  19. That's good of Will-i-am... most stars would probably bust the door down with their coke-fueled strength.

  20. Will-i-am is such a doucher.

  21. CONGRATS on making 200! Well deserved.

    Great post!
    I didn't watch the SB so no opinion can be put forth re commercials, half time show, players tight "ends", or any of the other stuff that went into this great event!

    Suffice it to say I've enjoyed all the posting that's been going on for the last week on this topic.

  22. Props on the 100 each! Now you can wage battles against each other with your fans.

  23. You guys need a blogging agent? I have some spare time?

    Great post and have an awesomatic week!!!

    CONGRATS on the big 200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. 200! You deserve it. I miss out on all these US adverts. And I only watched the Superbowl at the half-time show which was pretty bad. I cringed when he said "OBAMA WE GOTTA EDUCATE THE KIDS" or something along those lines.

  25. I may be the only person in the world who thinks that the Black Eyed Peas weren't so terrible during the halftime show. I think it was the equipment that was off. Fergie did ruin Sweet Child O'Mine though.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Some great commercials indeed! However, have you seen the horrible commercial for that food chain, where they basically used a countries bad state to present it. Forgot the name :/

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey, I normally don't do this cheesy shit...but...I made an award and I'm forcing it upon this blog. Hit up my page when ya'll aren't doing important shit and get it before my dog chews it up!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great fucking story, gives me a whole new respect for Will.I.Am.... !

    ReplyDelete
  29. Even shitty musicians can be good people.

    Heartwarming, really.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congrats on the followers. I wish I had a celebrity experience like that. I have had none. However the Audi commercial was hilarious. I hope my cousin saw that as he drives an Audi (AND HE'S MY AGE!)
