The Debbie Dower Super Bowl

I am surprised with how 'down' all of these Super bowl commercial are..

The Nationwide child death ad seems to have upset the entire nation.. Along with lots of tearful and somber ads of dads crying and dogs running..
This year we are being hit hard with emotions.. Advertisers a seemingly have abandoned all forms of humor and replaced it down doldrums and a mood slump..

Katy Perry lit up halftime with color and craziness, but the new ad order of sadness was on full display..

Why all the dismay?
Why all of the melancholy blues?
Field goal.
Smiles you'll lose..
It's the way to sell, to tear at your heart..
Advertisers have learned a new way.. Just remind people of how much life can often suck. And they will buy.
And cry..
Tears have filled empty nacho plates this Super Bowl Sunday..

Nationwide is not on our side..

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
