.Net Super Bowl commercial.
Fri Mar 29, 2013 8:26 pm
  • So watching the NCAA tournament on CBS, TNT and TBS and they keep pimping Bleacher Report who is apparently one of their sponsors. I figure if the worst sports website on the internet can sponsor such a huge event that its time for Mark (Rockhawk) to pony up some cash and get us a .Net Super Bowl commercial.

    We got to spit ball some idea's. What you got?

    I'm thinking something emotional, loving and sappy. Various .net members hanging out in the Seahawks locker room describing what they love about certain players. Then leaving "Go Hawks!" stickie notes on their lockers.

    Or, we could have various members simulate a Seahawks game. Pehawk, as the board midget, would have to play Russell Wilson. Tech worlds could wear his 79 jersey. AKSeahawkfan could return to play the role of Jim Harbaugh, since they're both pretty cranky. The rest of us could be in the stands making meaninless, dumbass comments about the play on the field, you know, playing our usual role.

    Come on Mark, get this done.

  • What's the cost again? $2m for 30 seconds, isn't it? Have Jester write a check.

    We got Ebay AND Amazon money coming in. Cost should be no object! Or, we could always release Absolute in a cost cutting move.

  • This, but reenacted with .NET regulars:



    Mark, in an ironic, yet strangely fitting role, plays the part of Danny DeVito.

  • So, a Spike Lee straight-line dolly shot starts in a highrises lobby, and slowly rolls toward the elevator. The elevator door opens to; Diags, Rock, Jsea and platapus sitting in the elevator.

    Enter Zeb...

    Zeb squeezes into the elevator, giving off that normal creepy vibe only Zeb can. All the others move towards the elevator walls, to give Zeb more room. At this point Zeb starts licking the left cheek of EVERYONE in the elvator (face cheek, you pervs). Everyone stands there confused and saddened by Zebs sexual assault.

    At this point the 3rd wall comes tumbling down, Zeb looks into the camera and says "can you guess what I had for breakfast, guys? Smell your faces, guess, c'mon!"

    Enter theme music, the seahawks.net logo, then our motto flashes across the screen "Seahawks.net...now with more QB threads and less racism".

    Thoughts?

    Hey! I think you'll find I was the Coen to Peaches' Coen on that project until my artistic difference/marital break up/horse tranquiliser incident/public indecency charge.

    And I will be back shortly to post an idea which is better than the one Pehawk got by spiking David Lynch's ether-soaked "relaxation rag" with mescaline.

    You do realise that both of Linda McCartney's legs were buried with the rest of her body?

    If she hears this she will be spinning in her hand-woven traditional native Indonesian death basket.

  • No cdallan, let's keep this American. You'll add a British accent, which will lead people to believe its a political message supporting the current case OUR supreme court is hearing. No offense, but all Euro accents sound pro gay marriage.

    While I support you guys, this isn't the forum.

    Now, if you want to add Les yelling at Rock for using the wrong elevator, fine. Something like "rock, that elevators for 3rd floor tenants, and technically you sublease a room on the 3rd floor. So, hit the stairs, Stupid!"

    Right? Or instead of just telling you to hit the stairs he says, "Rock, check your PM's, top left corner of your welcome mat"


    Far to difficult of a prima-donna ego to work with. Plus, the craft services bill with his huge posse would eat up half the budget.

  • Hey again! I have a rather broad Scottish accent. Imagine James McAvoy's big brother who didn't win a place at a fancy school. It sounds pro-hardening your arteries with saturated fat and using the c-word as a general descriptive term, and anti-everything else.

    You're in. But the first time I hear a "Mel Gibson" style Scottish accent, you're back to the curb.

    At the time, we all laughed at him and his accent in Braveheart, and said he'd never make a convincing Scotsman.

    Now look at him - an alcoholic racist.

    I guess he eventually got the hang of it.

    It's a date - unidentified home game Sep 2014. That's when I next plan to be in Seattle.

    Otherwise, I'd be happy to meet up if you have time for a pint of 70 shilling in Edinburgh's Rose Street during the Festival.

    I thought the "I have a broad Scottish accent" would have given it away.

    Enter Zeb...

    Zeb squeezes into the elevator, giving off that normal creepy vibe only Zeb can. All the others move towards the elevator walls, to give Zeb more room. At this point Zeb starts licking the left cheek of EVERYONE in the elvator (face cheek, you pervs). Everyone stands there confused and saddened by Zebs sexual assault.

    At this point the 3rd wall comes tumbling down, Zeb looks into the camera and says "can you guess what I had for breakfast, guys? Smell your faces, guess, c'mon!"

    Enter theme music, the seahawks.net logo, then our motto flashes across the screen "Seahawks.net...now with more QB threads and less racism".

    Thoughts?

    Thoughts?


    OK, as everyone still seems to be taking the silkwood shower we all take after the sluice gate to Pehawk's sewer that he calls his mind is opened, I thought that I would revert on a couple of technical points.

    Firstly, if Zeb speaks to the camera, isn't that breaking down the fourth wall? If you break down the third wall, then that just means you have a really flimsy set (which, given the
    Net server, I am not ruling out for this commercial).

    Secondly, can we verify the alleged reduction in racism? I haven't noticed it.

  • So is the fact that Pehawk doesn't do anything lewd or offensive an inside joke for the rest of us or just an attempt to make the commercial somewhat marketable? I mean if he isn't 'being Pehawk' he really serves no purpose in the commercial, and as per the JS philosophy might as well be a cap casualty. You also don't have to worry about his ridiculous rider for 12 monkeys and a big horned ram in his dressing room prior to his performance. Something about 'prepping the pipes', whatever that means. I guess it helps with his voice, but he doesn't have a speaking role...

    I'm not sure you understand what you just asked him to do, Scottish slang is different than ours.
