The Not So Super Advertisements


After watching some of  the commercials and the half time show during the Super Bowl I wonder if anyone can still arguably question if it is our schools or our society that are falling  apart.   Terribly, of the millions of children who watched this at times  openly egregious and apparently proud display of sex, poor taste, and sexual innuendo, nearly none saw anything  that was out of the ordinary on TV or in our society.  Our children are great observers of us and through our tacit support of these commercials we teach a lesson. A lesson that most of us did not intend.

In reality we would all probably be better off it they had tied most of the products and actors/actresses in the commercials to the prop of an outboard motor and turned it on to see if they, like a Timex, “Could take a licking and keep on ticking.”  However as I read this again I realize that an ad executive might take that simple phrase and make it into something else

There was one refreshing thing  however,  it was nice to see that for once the athletes on the field on both teams for the large part were the class act  of the whole night.

About safrisri

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
