The Killing Time Until 'The Office' Post

If there was a Super Bowl ad you loved and want to see again or you didn't want to sit through the Super Bowl just for the ads, Hulu has them all posted for viewing. What did we do before Hulu people???

Speaking of Hulu, I loved their commercial, though Alec Baldwin looked a bit odd. The bit that got me was, "What are you going to do? Turn off your TV and computer?" Wow. They really get the multitaksing that goes on. And the tag line was pretty awesome. "Hulu: An evil plot to destroy the world." Hee.

My other favorite commercial was NBC's promo for the Monday night lineup returning tomorrow night. Can anything top Casey dancing with his gun? I think not!

As for the movies, G.I. Joe didn't look as bad as I feared, but I still fear some of the casting. Star Trek isn't feeling like a Star Trek movie to me. And if the first film was called The Fast and the Furious, isn't calling the fourth in the franchise Fast and the Furious going to be confusing?

Things that amused me during the actual game:

Al Michaels, after he saw Cuba Gooding Jr. in attendance and recounted his experience of watching him film a pivotal scene for Jerry Maguire and John Madden asked if he was in the film, announcing he just received a $26 dollar residual check last week.

Fanfic has ruined the game of football for me. When Madden commented, "He gets penetration on both sides", well, you don't want to know where my mind went.

And totally unrelated, last week The NY Times did a piece on the new dress code at the White House. One part of the article has been contradicted (people had been photographed in oval office in shirt sleeves during the Bush years), but it's an interesting glimpse into the Obama routine. And I fully support not showing up to work until 9:00am. ;)

Hulu ad was great, I didn't even know about the GI Joe film, The Drinkability ads were funny, and the Halftime show was most unmemorable.

Oh and the game was good as well.
#1 - The Fast and the Furious
#4 - Fast and Furious

Confusing? Maybe. Care factor? Zero. Anyone who watches those films gets no sympathy for confusing the titles.
I'm a little non-plussed by the Star Trek movie. Is it going to re-launch the movies and a new series, or is it an experiment? Will it walk over existing canon (Enterprise, I'm looking at you) or will it compliment what's already known. Hmm. Either way, I doubt I'll see it until the DVD is in the cheap to buy range ;)

Did the G.I. Joe movie include Snake Eyes? He was always my favourite character in the comics...

But I bet there's Lee/Laura fanfiction out there that uses this concept ;)

I can sympathise with not wanting to start work early ;) From the fact that President Obama seems to work until the job's done, it makes sense for him to get in at 9 after spending time with the kids - after all, he could find himself starting early and still finishing late. I rather like the idea that he seems focussed on the job and is keeping his staff on their toes by wandering around, rather than being as autocratic as Bush seems to be. By and large, I've found that managers obsessed with the timekeeping and dress of their staff are so obsessed because they don't actually understand what the staff are doing and need to assert their authority ;)

I have no clue who Snake Eyes is. Sorry! It's just from the little I read about the film, I had very low expectations for it. It still could be crap, but they put together a commercial that grabbed my attention.
So Star TREK wise.....They are releasing a set of comics that lead up to the movie (Star Trek:Countdown). These depict a sequence of events that may link the last Movie (nemesis) to this next movie. I think also they have changed the way it feels in an effort to re-invigorate the franchise and get away from the sheer dullness of the last 2 movies.

I was Happy to see Transformers 2. Im such a boy :D
They're trying to link the new film to Nemesis? Really? Why??? You're not making me feel any better about this! :p
Well not the actual FILM. But if you have watched the film, there are events in the comic that make you go...Huh? Hang on.....
I loved the Hulu ad. As for the rest of the commercials, the game turned out to be much, much better :)

This so cracked me up this morning. *g* But honestly, where else are our minds to go?
