Get ready for it, Canadian SuperBowl fans, because it’s coming. The annual post-game complaint is nearly upon us. That complaint? How come we in Canada aren’t able to see all the SuperBowl-premiered advertisements? Instead of seeing the premiere of the latest and greatest new SodaPop ad featuring SexySinger, or that hilarious, irreverent new ad from HipBusiness.com, or the further adventures of the large-hooved alcohol-transporting equine-slaves, we are stuck with countless airings of (at least here in The Maritimes) the ad for The Cunard Restaurant.
Yes, the yearly migration of disappointed Canadian sports and/or advertisement fans to their keyboards is almost here, the time when so many take to their blogs and/or forums to post angry complaints that Global Television has yet again highjacked the American stations carrying the SuperBowl telecast, causing us to miss out on an essential element of SuperBowl Sunday – The New TV ads.
Since so many will be too incensed to type clearly their displeasure, I offer the following missive, which you may feel free to copy and paste as your own angry diatribe:
This sux! I watched the Superbowl expecting to see all those cool and funny ads and didn’t get to see many of them at all. Every station carrying the game was the same channel. It was all showing Global TV coverage. What’s up with that? I’m paying money to get the American stations and the commercials they show too. But how come I’m getting Global broadcast on the American station? What a rip!! I’m gonna complain to my local cable provider and demand that I not pay for the American stations I’m not getting when I should be getting them. Everybody should write and complain. I wanted to see what that insurance duck was up to and I get some crappy ad for a local restaurant? Poison! I’m never eating there! That place sux!
I’m Never Watching Global Again!!!1!!!
