Are you one of those viewers that have viewed a commercial that is just so vexatious that it stays on your mind? A commercial that is so offensive that it either draws your attention to it or makes you want to turn the television off. If you are one of these people, I understand because I am one of those particular viewers who have experienced feelings like this watching the super bowl Sunday night. There are an abundance of commercials on television that are offensive due to inappropriate sexual content or stereotyping of certain people, however the geek and the model left me speechless. This commercial portrayed the beautiful model, Bar Refaeli kissing an unattractive computer nerd, a little too intimately for an event watched by families. The commercial focused both on sex and stereotyping. In my opinion this commercial was very offensive to many viewers because it displayed almost a sexual love scene. They were kissing and grabbing each other’s face as if they were two lovers all alone in a room. It bothered me because I feel commercials like this exploit beautiful women to either sell products or promote a corporate item. It is really embarrassing to women because these commercials are portraying an image that women are only sex objects. It also indicated subliminally that beautiful women cannot be smart. The result is that these commercials portray beautiful women in a negative away; nothing more and nothing less. This commercial did not just target women; it also targeted a specific type of man as well. The educated, working man. However, who determined that this type of man looks like the image on television? Isn’t it possible to be smart and attractive? What disrespect for those who are educated. What disrespect for those that do look like the image on television. The image of a lonely, fat nerd kissing a worldwide, five star super model was made to be laughable. I feel it is wrong and very hurtful to display a commercial like this as it creates a fantasy for “nerdy”, unattractive young males that in reality probably could not come true. In addition, it ingrains the image in the mind of viewers worldwide. Television is a powerful medium that influences even the young. Another reason that this commercial was particularly disturbing is that the Super Bowl is viewed by…

So now I’ll show you the commercial, then I can talk about it a little bit more when it’s done
Okay so, the initial point of this commercial was to advertise the 2012 Volkswagen Passat, and it aired during the 2011 Super Bowl.
Some thing’s I definitely liked about it was that I liked how Volkswagen took the term “The Force” from star wars and used it in relation to a car. Normally when you think of automobiles you may think strength, as well as speed, and when you think…

The Super Bowl is a football game in which the best team in each conference plays for a chance to be called the best in the NFL. Super Bowl XLVII was certainly played by two great teams. However, it wasn’t just 49ers and the Ravens that people wanted to watch. In fact, this was the first time that two brothers took the field as opposing coaches. Jim and John Harbaugh are two brothers that had one goal that day. Make sure the other team…

Super Bowl or Super Chill?
There has been a continuous ongoing argument whether or not the Super Bowl within a climate controlled stadium. Meaning that the Stadium would be covered and either would have fans when extremely hot or heaters under the field for when extraordinarily cold temperatures. It is important to take into consideration about what is best for the players. With past experience, I know what it feels like to…
My group was comprised of Courtney, Zach, Brady, Myrell and me. Our goal was to get the project completed in the time that was provided and inform the class on media ethics. Throughout the speech we also informed the class on media ethics, the Super Bowl, deceptive nature, and the banning of commercials. I think we achieved the goal because the speech was the right amount of time, the class was very interested in what we were talking about and everyone in the group did their part, which made it…
Louisiana to Olivia and NFL quarterback Elisha “Archie” Manning III. Also both brothers were drafted in the first round, first pick of their respective draft class. They both have made several super bowl appearances and have been voted the MVP in the super bowl. They also have been invited to the Pro Bowl on more than one occasion.
On the other hand, these two brothers have many differences such as the fact that they both play for different college teams and NFL teams. Eli played at the University…

The thought of a device that could project images on to a screen from a different place was unheard of; however it was one of the most innovative ideas…

It was just over a week ago when I watched the Super Bowl. Like every other super bowl before, it was filled with tons of food, herendously expensive seats, and an over the top halftime show. The thing that caught my eye though, was the commercials. The overly patriotic ones specifically. All of them, ranging from commercials about things being “made in the USA” to commercials about troops coming home. Now theres nothing wrong with wanting a troop to come home or even having a commercial about it…
