Super Bowl Commercials - Are you laughing?

The Super Bowl has grown to be an event that not many sports fans would miss on a bet, but you can bet that not many will miss the water cooler chater tomorrow about the commercials that are aired this afternoon. Last year it was estimated that 206 million dollars were spent on Super Bowl ads. I am not sure what the estimate is for this year, but you can bet it will at least equal last years expenditures.

In these times of great stress on our economy, is this the right place for some of our biggest companies in the US to invest their dollars? Do these dollars create jobs by bringing in sales, or are they just an attempt to flex some high paid executive's ego by capturing bragging rights amongst his or her peers?

Are you laughing? Is America laughing? Its a personal choice. Enjoy the game!
