Stupor Bowl

The dollar eye lights us green. Subtle.

Originally:

Sports. Sports on the news. Sports as the news. Part of the war machine, this newsworthiness.

Upgraded To:

Sports. Watch for the commercials. Watch the news for the recap of the commercials and the sports. If you can’t be a good soldier, be a good consumer. At least that.

Upgraded To:

Sports. Watch for the commercials. Tweet everything. When the power goes out and the game is stopped, read corporate tweets so you don’t miss a commercial. Watch the news for the recap of the commercials and the sports and the weather map-like display of trending topics tweeted about sports and commercials. If you can’t be a good soldier or a good consumer, be a focus group. At least that.

See, in the Information Age, you’re the information. What did we learn about you this year? You like ponies and hate “super” models kissing fat boys. And you think women entertaining you through song and dance = powerful women.

Tomorrow you’ll wake up and decry how shallow it all is.

And the next day they’ll sell that to you, too. You will allow it.

One thought on “Stupor Bowl

  1. Well, that’s just looking at the negative, Jeremy. What about the Puppy Bowl? Couldn’t you just feel the best in all of us emerging, as millions of Americans left the game crap and switched over to the Puppies, Puppies, Puppies, Puppies Bowl? That way they got puppy crap instead. And damn, that stuff is authentic. You’ve got to hand it to Americans for that. No matter how much irony and negativity we have, we’ve always got a soft spot and a good heart for Puppies Puppies Puppies Puppies PUPPIES!
