super bowl

People say it was rejected because of “firearms”, but I’m skeptical.  Take a look:

Here’s what MrColionNoir has to say about it:

Seriously that was one of the shittiest commercials I’ve ever seen.  Funny thing is that until the narrator mentioned “protection” I actually thought it was an ad for whatever garbage Ford SUV the guy was driving, and I was annoyed that YouTube “Skip Ad” countdown didn’t pop up.  Daniel Defense should be ashamed they didn’t come up with anything more creative… hell right off the top of my head put spokesman Larry “The LAV” Vickers on a clydesdale horse, shirtless, galloping in slow motion, eating cheeseburgers, holding an American Flag, and that would have been a billion times more memorable and effective.   P.S. – That idea was free in case you want to step your game up in 2014 Daniel Defense.  I also would consider a temporary TV ad consulting position if I’m not busy.

Larry-Vickers-The-LAVI don’t like / watch sports… better things to do like nap and eat.  When are doctors and engineers going to start getting football level salaries?  That would be a perfect world.  Although, incorporating advertising into those two professions to fund that might be a bit difficult ;)

Thoughts?

Did this seriously air during the Super Bowl?

I don’t watch sports, but please tell me some stock photos shoved into a weak-ass powerpoint presentation didn’t air during the most watched game of the year?

MAIG-Demand-A-Plan-To-End-Gun-ViolenceActually I hope it did air… that way people might not take their whole disarmament plan and “Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazines” crap seriously, when they see MAIG can’t even put together a semi-professional looking 30 second ad.

Thoughts?

Illegal gun? *facepalm* are people still using that term?

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his national coalition against illegal guns plan to air a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl where he and Boston Mayor Tom Menino act out something anti-illegal-gun that plays on the rivalry between NY and Boston.  According to the article, National Super Bowl ads are fetching a record $3.5 million for 30-second spots.

Full Story – HERE

$3.5M for a 30 second spot?  Wouldn’t that money be better spent on something that will actually make a difference?  Perhaps pay for some police overtime? Maybe crack a few cases? Make a bunch of arrests?   Nahhhh forget it, this is more showy.

We need to repair the broken Federal background check system!  Gun show loophole! Gun show loophole!  How about everyone wakes up and smells the coffee and realizes that criminals do not care about background checks.  Even if that system became so air tight that a criminal could not possibly buy a new gun, the used market and underground market would still thrive.

Anyone want to weigh in?
