    It was just ok. Not horrible, but not great.

    Re: New Football Commercial

    And judging by the comment on facebook, I'm guessing either the commercial or the comment gets pulled in 3,2...

    Re: New Football Commercial

    I still dont know why we dont use the song Soldiers by Drowning Pool? Even when I was a marketing intern I was pulling for this song. Great pump-up song, has sirens to start, a 'hard hitting' feel to it.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LsgwWfTuTk"]YouTube- Drowning Pool - "Soldiers" Eleven Seven Music[/ame]

    imagine this being played when they start to come out of the locker room....

    ..and yes i know they are air raid sirens, so since they are not tornado sirens, the city of ames should approve :)

    Re: New Football Commercial

    Well, something in the marketing feedback molded this ad. But I would agree it really doesn't hit the mark for me...hmmmm so I am guessing it is the new fan or going after long time fans that should be buying tickets or people that like the pre-game events during tailgating. Get people to the lots for pregame then they are likely to walk up and buy a ticket/bundle at some point? I'll have to watch it again when I have time.

    Finally, that ending music must indicate some meaning, I hope???

    because, just like the new commercial, it's not good.

    Re: New Football Commercial

    Honestly, I thought that was probably the worst that they've come out with recently. Not that it's that bad, but they've come out with some really strong marketing spots in the last few years. This one really needed some better music and some action shots and crowd shots from last season. You have to get people to buy in that not only will they have fun tailgating, but see some exciting, winning football.

    it isn't about the tailgating?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: New Football Commercial

    Just toss together a couple turnover scenes from the nebraska game and CPR's 'I'm so proud' speech. That would be WAY better then this.
