Tuesday Quick links: Groupon is evidently evil

Let me preface this by saying, it’s pretty much impossible to offend me or make me say the phrase “that went too far.” Congratulations, Groupon, you managed to do that with your Super Bowl commercial. I can only conclude your company is inherently evil.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I really liked this Kia spot as well as the VW Darth Vader ad that had been making the rounds before the broadcast. And ok, I’ll admit that I laughed at the Cram It in the Boot one as well.

Absolutely loved the New Pornographers’ latest video, especially the brief John Oliver cameo. Te only downside is you don’t get to see the lovely and talented Neko Case in person.

By the way, I fixed the subscribe link for the blog so that it is actually visible on the left side of the homepage, instead of burying it. So feel free to click the button and subscribe if you want to ensure that you don’t miss a single word of blog excitement and bliss.

Cheers.

  1. Ha! That groupon commercial made me laugh out loud. Pretty sure I’m going to hell now.

  2. Yes, yes you are. I defer to Patton Oswalt from Twitter on this one:
