Superbowl commercials

Despite it being a home team game, I wasn't all that interested in watching the Superbowl this year (am I ever?), and although I thought about TiVoing it for the commercials, I figured, eh, they'll be on YouTube soon enough.

Evidently, I wasn't the only one who had that idea.

Right now, YouTube has a dedicated Superbowl commercial page with 51 (of the?) commercials that aired during the event. But here's the thing: not only is YouTube itself on board, so are the companies. If you look, the commercials aren't submitted by DarkHyena485 or the like; they're submitted by the companies themselves (and hence fairly high quality, lacking in TV station bugs, and legal). Honestly, it's about time; for years I've been wondering when companies would cotton on to the fact that—at least for the good commercials—there are people that actively want to look at them, and why should they have to go bootlegging them?

So anyway, if you missed 'em, there they are.

"If you're concerned about your health, you should probably avoid food products that make health claims. Why? Because a health claim on a food product is a good indication that it's not really food, and food is what you want to eat." --Michael Pollan
