Advertising makes us buy things we don’t need – like the Toilet Coffee Mug, Bacon Bandaids, or Gun-shaped ice-cube trays. I say turn off the Super Bowl, avoid the commercials, and cook a vegan meal together. Okay, I’m just messin’ with ya.
When I was in a few Super Bowl ads, my buddies assumed I struck the mutherload! I wish. Although the average price advertisers pay for a 30 second spot is almost $4 million, actors’ scale pay for a national network airing is about 50 bucks – be it a low-rated sitcom or Super Bowl.
