Cost of Super Bowl Commercials outrages Merjeo reader

Email from Merjeo Reader:

Dear Merjeo,

Personally I don’t handle drama of any kind very well. However, my boyfriend read me a segment from the Chattanooga newspaper a few minutes ago and it saddens me, so if you will be kind enough to endure my rant you JUST MIGHT AGREE WITH ME. if not that’s OK by me . . .

After all we were created to be and think differently . . .

He read to me that a 30 second commercial for the SUPER BOWL costs 5, yes I said 5 million dollars. What has me in a funk is several commercials were aired last evening, and I agree some will make people howl with laughter.

BUT THINK FOR A MOMENT. 5 million dollars per commercial could build hundreds of houses with one bedroom, one bathroom and a small living room/kitchen area for our nation’s HOMELESS. It can also build several 2 and 3 bedroom houses with one bath, and don’t even think to say that’s not enough bedroom and baths.

How about spending a few million dollars for food pantries, homeless shelters, medical care (including those on low fixed incomes) and last but not least, giving school teachers a decent pay raise and also giving good teachers a supplement to do things for their classroom so they won’t have to use their pay check to make learning fun and interesting?

OK THAT’S MY DRAMA FOR A FEW MONTHS. For all who read through to the end THANK YOU. FOR ALL OF U WHO DID NOT READ TO THE END, PISS ON YOU!


Response from Merjeo:

It sounds to me like sour grapes.

Did it not occur to you that the money the big Companies spend for commercials is an investment? If you don’t know what I’m saying, let me explain it to you. An investment is spending money, in order to make more money.

These big Companies know what they’re doing. If they spend 5 million dollars for a commercial, you can bet they will make it back, and and probably 10 times.

Big Companies also give a huge amount of money to charities. Bill Gates, the richest man in the world, recently gave 4.6 billion dollars to charity. Yes, I said BILLION, not MILLION.

How do you know the Companies that made the commercials are not helping the homeless? If they’re not, I’d be very surprised.

As a general rule, you get back what you give. Need I say more?
