According to a friend who actually follows football, Pittsburgh was leading in the Super Bowl 21-10. They were 14-3 an hour ago, when Eric and I were having dinner at a trendy cafe while on the way home from a LARP.

I had only the mildest curiosity about the game, but while I was glancing at the TV screens I saw the most bizarre commercial. The opening shot is of a Godzilla-like monster, trashing an ordinary American city. An Ultra-Man style robot, just as tall as Godzilla, walks up to it. They stare at each other a moment, then they gently touch hands (okay, hand to claw), and walk off together. Ultra-Man pulls a random tree off a passing apartment building and hands it to G. as though it were a bouquet. Cut to a scene of the two of them reclining, in a posture of happy satiety, under the moon. Cut to a second scene, showing G. now looking hugely pregnant. Cut finally to a scene where UM is standing solicitiously over G., who has a bright red truck-like vehicle in her hands. She sets it down, and it drives away.

The slogan? "HV3--it's a little monster." Apparently Humvees are produced by the carnal union of Godzilla and a robot. Who knew?

And would somebody please send Godzilla to stomp on Hummer's corporate HQ or something?
