To be honest, I did not watch any the commercials for the Super Bowl. Yeah, I go to the party, but to talk and eat. I guess football is still king and none of my family even talked about the commercials. Someone murmured something about Betty White and a green commercial, but it just didn’t register.
I caught a glimpse of some of the commercials on the View especially of Betty White, but nothing about a green commercial. Today, I saw the You Tube version on Jennifer Chait’s article on BlissTree.
I found it hilarious. If my kids will tell you that I am the eco-police. I turn off lights, which are left on all over the house, take plastic and rotten apples out of the garbage for my composter, turn off all the surge protectors before I go to bed, and try and reuse everything I have.
The New York Times in their run down of the Super Bowl commercials stated:
“AUDI Officious “green police” punish citizens who are not sufficiently eco-conscious, but an owner of an Audi A3 TDI with clean-diesel technology drives away scot-free. This misguided spot put the “mental” in “environmental.”
So, readers were you insulted, thought it was funny, or think all environmentalists are nut jobs? Why? You can be honest. I won’t take it personally. Remember, I thought the commercial was funny.
See my poll on the side bar. Let’s see what everyone thought.
