Super Bowl Commercials (video)

Apart from watching the Stones' remarkably peppy yet nonetheless depressing Nextel-sponsored performance at half time, the only real reasons to watch the game are the deep-fried jalapenos, papa's chicken wings, and football-shaped eclairs.

Thanks to Google's technology (and Metafilter's vigilance) you can just watch the commercials and down the bad food... all in about 20 minutes [HERE].

Then go read a book for G-d's sake. (Metafilter)
