    Haha, I saw the "tofu" commercial you are talking about during the game last night. Actually, all the people I was watching the game with got a laugh out of it. Basically, the commerical is saying real men drive trucks and eat BBQ, not all that sissy stuff like tofu. I do agree with others that the current adverts don't actually tell you much about the truck. GM must be using the same ad agency as Apple.

    Hm, sounds like I missed the point of that one…either way, I'm still not a fan of this marketing campaign. Good thing we make a great product :glasses:

    I honestly can't remember the last time a commercial sold me something. I try to ignore/skip commercials as much as possible. There's just too dang many of them. Driving down the road? Billboards every 50 feet. Reading a newspaper or magazine? Ads every other page. Sufing the Internet? Ads take up more space on each page than the acutal content. Watching TV? Commericials every 2 minutes. Listen to the radio? Commercials after ever song. It's actually really annoying hence why ignore as much as I can.

    True, true. But in this day and age I think we can do with a little less political correctness from time to time. Especially when it comes to scantilly clad women... :)

    I completely agree….if only everyone else did. I think America is becoming much too concerned about doing things in such a way that is "politically correct" rather than focusing on the task at hand and getting the job done. I believe in political correctness, to a certain degree, but in this day and age it appears that it is the only thing that matters. Quit trying to make everyone happy, its impossible.:no:

    Lol, there's my rant of the day :glasses:

    And just saw chevrolet's superbowl commercial.... With cows... what a joke.. They could have done better than that for price of that spot IMO.

    I guess with the cancer awareness month commercial they put out it is a nice twist of a commercial for them.

    The SB commercials this year were the worst I have ever seen them. Years ago, you count on the SB commercials being some of the funniest you had ever seen but the past few years they have just been weak. :(
