Too busy watching Puppy Bowl III like us? Here’s a quick recap of last night’s ho-hum Super Bowl and the advertising and media circus surrounding it:
SETH GODIN: I quit. After watching GM run a 2 million dollar commercial that consists of a robot getting fired, walking the streets and then committing suicide [above], I’m so confused, so clueless and yes, so ashamed to be even peripherally involved in this line of work, I have no choice but to quit. If your company was breaking records (in losing money) and was so adversely affecting the lives of thousands, why on earth would you run this ad? I give up.
