    Chunky Soup

    Did anyone see the alternate version of the Campbell's Chunky Soup commercial with Cruz?

    WOW, is there some head-scratching stuff.

    For those who didn't, after she gives him the crappy soup, VC's mother -- who is dressed as the Giants "mascot" -- runs away and trips over a camera man (I'm sure Antrel doesn't find that very humorous).

    And after his mother falls, his late grandmother -- who was hiding in the helmet -- falls out and says "hi" to him. Double ouch.

    What the hell are they thinking showing that? Not so much the first part with the camera man. But isn't that insensitive to air that now that she died?

    There aired it prior to her passing away. Well before the Rolle incident and they have been running it every week since.
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    I saw that too - thought it very odd, I can only hope that's something they cleared w the family first.

    those commercials were recorded many months ago. Contracts were signed. It would be cold hearted of Campbell's to keep running the ad if the Cruz family aasked them to stop. Of course they might enjoy seeing her in the commercials.

    Question.....which thread subject, currently on the MB, is the most meaningless? This one....or the Fanbase Power ranking one?

    Are we really this bored?


    edit....I found another thread on the smack talk forum that can be added.....the one asking Giants fans why they haven't wished RGIII to get well soon.

    ever think maybe cruz and his family really enjoyed filming that commercial, and it's another way for them to remember his abuela?

    i swear some people complain about stuff just for the sake of complaining.

    As long as we're being honest, I found your response to my "meaningless post" to be even more meaningless. But yes, I'm bored. *Sigh*
