Asians and Asian Americans are Out There…

Asians and Asian Americans and the Super Bowl, from Angry Asian Man. Yep, that was Aaron Takahashi in the Living large commercial (he was already the guy who did not resist the ketchup for his McDonald Angus burger). (see here for a previous mention on Takahashi and his Angus burger here at triscribe).

And, yes, that was freaking Voltron in the MetLife commercial, with Peanuts and every other cartoon character. Gasp.

(but the New England Patriots had Patrick Chung, who’s part Chinese and Jamaican).

Oh, and boo to the racist political ad…

(I’ll probably link more later about the ads from the Super Bowl).

Ken Jeong and Elmo on what is a deciduous tree:

Super Bowl! NY Giants!

OMG.  NY Giants win!  (against New England Patriots; again!!). Yay, Giants!

I had actually called the score, days ago, when I put in my picks.  Man, I should have put money on this.

Still: the Giants win!

Regarding the commercials: the Coke polar bears commercials were sweet, as was the MetLife  commercial that brought Peanuts characters with other cartoons (even Voltron!).  The NFL commercial (supposedly about safety in the sport, but really about the history of football) was moving, as was the one where they thanked fans (after all, this season had a lockout).  Other commercials – ugh.

Also, I didn’t hate the Matthew Broderick as not-Ferris Bueller commercial, but you had to wonder why he had to do it for Honda.

Otherwise, way too much end-of-world commercials (really?  Chevy trucks and Twinkies will survive alien invasions?  in addition to trailers for movies that I’ll pass on, thanks).   I think one of us at triscribe will post links to the commercials or articles about the commercials.

What a Super Bowl, ultimately…
