I have been complaining for three days about the fact that there are TRAILERS for COMMERCIALS now. Companies have been releasing teaser trailers for the ads they are going to run during the Super Bowl AND THAT IS CHEATING. AND STUPID.
Ben is particularly excited about this Motorola Xoom commercial because it’s Tegra driven hardware and because it’s very similar to an Apple commercial shown during the 1984 Super Bowl.
I refuse to watch this commercial because TRAILERS FOR COMMERCIALS ARE LAME. The whole point of the Super Bowl is to be stunned, shocked and amused by the awesome commercials (and see the Steelers KICK ASS) and if I have an idea of what they are all going to be about before hand what is the point!?
This conversation happened after several minutes of Ben and I disagreeing about these trailers.
Ben: We should watch the original commercial before we see the Xoom Super Bowl commercial.
Ben: *stone face*
Me: *MORE GRIMMACY*
Ben: Do you know what I’m thinking right now?
Me: That you want to punch me in the face?
Ben: You know those things they used to knock down castle doors?
Me: Battering rams!
Ben: Yeah, one of those, only like, steam powered! IN YOUR FACE. RIGHT NOW.
Me: *stone face*
Ben: *stone face*
And then I started laughing. And then Ben started laughing. And I don’t know, when I type it back now it doesn’t seem as funny but at the time I DIED. It was that kind of laugh that releases stress and makes you forget the long work week and I CRIED. There were actual tears caused by laughter and thank goodness we were pretty much alone in the restaurant because we probably looked like crazy people. It felt so good.
Me: You want to know what I was thinking? I was thinking that maybe we should check Rotten Tomatoes to read the reviews and then watch this prequel commercial before we have to watch this new commercial.
Ben: Stop being so cynical!
Me: You’re still thinking about the battering ram aren’t you?
And then I started laughing all over again. And this is why I love my husband. At the end of the day, every day, I laugh. Usually at my own expense but that’s okay.

See, this is why I love you so much – because pretty much, we would get along famously. Sean and I constantly are like, “Omg, I’m going to punch you in the face” and it couldn’t be more loving or hilarious all at once — and then I read this and go, “Kindred spirits.” <3
Heh – I think laughing together is one of the most important things in a marriage. Also, commercials for commercials? WTF?
Really? There were teasers for the Superbowl commercials? D: Wow…
(Personally, the Little Darth Vader car commercial was my favorite, with the Doritos commercial with the guy licking his collegue’s fingers not far behind.)
