other than that amazing 100yd TD, this game has blown. Oh well, next up Grammys!

I kinda figured the commercial would just be music set to football stuff, so I wasn't annoyed. I'm just glad I finally get to hear something U2 other than Beautiful Day on television since forever. I wouldn't be shocked at all if someone hearing the song didn't even know it was U2 though because it was a pretty short clip and was more about the Raider guy.

I think the length and song portion choice was ideal. This isn't exactly a song that fits into a football context.

They'll probably just play Pride or something there. To piss us off.

The commercials are not funny at all and there are a lot of movie ads too. Bruce was good too. The game is so boring. Not one of the best SuperBowls.

The GOYB commercial is up on Hulu now in case you missed it (or don't live in the US).

I guess it's useless at this point to bitch about U2 doing what everybody and their brother is doing these days to promote their music, even though the old fart in me who remembers when it was considered a very tacky thing for a rock band to do would prefer they not go there - but does it strike anyone else but me that the whole tie-in doesn't even make sense? Football players don't wear boots - they wear cleats. Maybe they should have gone with the NHL instead.

I though the same thing.
But then figured I just had U2 on the brain

Bruce's crotch ramming the camera is still the highlight of that game.
