The most epic Super Bowl ad you didn’t see — A revenge film that’ll make you want to get injured in Georgia

February 3, 2014 | 2 comments

Attorney James Casino recently switched from defending criminals to being a personal injury lawyer. He explained the switch yesterday in a Super Bowl ad…but it only aired in Savannah, Georgia, so you probably didn’t see it.

It is a wonderfully over-the-top mini-movie, perhaps inspired by The Boondock Saints, that will almost motivate you to move to Georgia and get injured so that you can hire this force of justice and righteous vengeance…

The Scarlett Johansson Super Bowl commercial was banned…but not because of Scarlett Johansson

January 29, 2014 | 1 comment

Sodastream wanted their Super Bowl commercial to go viral and they seem to have discovered the elusive formula. All it takes is Scarlett Johansson and the implication that the ad needs to be censored…

In fact, this commercial was rejected by Fox for the Super Bowl, but it has nothing to do with anything lurid. It’s simply because they don’t want to alienate Sodastream’s competitors with the line “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi.”
