And Hollywood likes the more exaggerated story, so even with Pitts saying that's not the way things were, they went with Ephraam's version.

And of course, I am sure the conversations between the two didn't go the way they did on the commercials. "Oboe, it's a member of the woodwind family."

Hollywood does the exaggerated version because if reality programming was real, it would be boring.

Dramatizations of real events are rarely a reflection of reality because reality is usually boring and subtle and complicated and that doesn't make for good TV.

Of course Hollywood is going to exaggerate the story. The point of the commercial was to tell an interesting story in an entertaining way. The commercial probably wouldn't have been made if they told the story the way it actually happened and I think Chester doesn't really care either. Better to be in a Super Bowl commercial about yourself telling an exaggerated story than not to be in one at all.

As I said, it wasn't a complaint about the ad but more of an observation.

That would be cool, if she didn't look like the guy in gym class that everyone picked on... I mean her kissing a chick doesn't exactly conjure up, say Tiffany Amber Thiessen and Jaime Pressley, or Brit and Maddonna, etc., etc....

Dude, I watch Ellen everyday.....j/k. I saw a commercial for it while I was watching the news at lunch. Pitts and Salaam talked about the story behind the super ad. They said it was voted the #1 SB commercial on some poll. Also Salaam gave her a signed Texans jersey, and they were both decent dancers.

Figured someone would have put it on youtube by now.

This was funny stuff.

Chester looks like he is slimming down to play guard in Gibbs' system. He is usually a little rounder. Even Salaam looks to have slimmed down.

I thought Salaam was a FA this year?

Maybe his agent and the Texans have already been talking.

Interesting. Apparently our positive reviews of the commercial weren't seen through "homer-colored" glasses.

"Though an earlier survey by TiVo showed that E*Trade's Super Bowl ad was the most viewed, new data from IAG Research claims the NFL's Chester Pitts ad was the most liked and FedEx's carrier pigeon ad was the most recalled. E*Trade's ad featuring a talking baby scored high, netting No. 7 on the "most viewed" and No. 8 on "most recalled" lists. IAG, New York, bases its findings on 18,000 surveys with people who watched Sunday's telecast. The NFL's ad, about a Houston Texans player named Chester Pitts who was discovered bagging groceries by fellow Texan Ephraim Salaam, performed 72% better than the average Super Bowl ad."

Salaam needs to do stand up comedy when his football career is over.
