So, I hear there is a big game today and I don’t mean Liverpool-Chelsea or the Tyne-Wear Derby. Contrary to popular opinion, there are comics nerds who like sports.
Then again, maybe you’re only watching for the commercials. There are a number of nerd-friendly ads tonight, including trailers for movies like ANGELS & DEMONS, ALIENS VS MONSTERS (Did you get your 3D glasses? Hopefully, you can use the ones that came with SUPERMAN BEYOND.), LAND OF THE LOST, RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN and Pixar’s UP. There’s also the GI JOE ad, which is supposed to debut tonight during the game, but it’s not listed on the list of all the ads in Friday’s USA TODAY. I guess we will see if it is shown or not.
There are now sites devoted to analyzing the ads, so you don’t have to wait until the Monday McPaper to read what people thought of the new Budweiser spots.
