Call Me Picky, But....

The thing the Super Bowl is most known for is the commercials (the football game is merely there to fill the time between the ads). One of the better ones this year was the one Justin Timberlake did for Pepsi. He gets dragged all over town as a girl sucks on her straw (insert dirty "chrome off a bumper" joke here).

At one point Timberlake gets dragged across a girls' soccer field and one lucky player manages to grab his right shoe as a souvenir. But when he ends up slamming crotch first into a mailbox pole, it's his left shoe that's missing. And by the time he finally ends up in the yard of the girl sucking on the straw (insert dirty "chrome off a bumper" joke, part II, here), it's his right shoe that's once again missing.

Not being able to tell his right foot from his left is the kind of stupid thing you'd expect from President Bush. But Justin Timberlake?!?!? Sorry, but he just lost my vote.

At $2.7 million for a 30 second ad, you'd think someone would have paid attention to his damn footwear.
