NHL Game 5 Commercials

June 4, 2008 at 9:25 am 1 comment

Watching the Red Wings game Monday night was a lot of fun, even though they lost.  But during the commercial breaks, I started to get annoyed (weird).  There were literally maybe seven commercials that played the entire night during the TV timeouts and intermissions.

  • Edge shaving gel
  • Dockers
  • Cialis
  • Flomax
  • NBC’s new show Fear Itself

I know there may have been one or two other commercials I missed, but when a game goes into 3 overtimes (that’s a total of five 20 minute intermissions) and you only play a handful of commercials, it gets really annoying.

If these companies bought all the ad time, great.  But is it too much to ask for a couple variations of your commercial?

    Couldn’t agree more, I’ve accepted the fact that the networks need to pump the event with commercial for revenue as well as the company’s pay for ad time. But really can you fill that time with a variety. Each time I see the same commercial I have a smaller desire for the product/service.
