Super Bowl ads on tap

In television, tv on 02/01/2009 at 11:16 pm

I’m not always in love with Videotron, my Montreal cable provider. Why can’t we get Movie Network On Demand? Why can’t we get A Channel, CTV’s “B” channel. And how about AMC, the channel on which the rest of the country sees Mad Men etc?
But one day a year, I like Videotron. Super Bowl Sunday. Although CTV blocked the Super Bowl ads, my trusty HD flat screen showed that despite fears to the contrary, the U.S. ads were not blocked on NBC HD feed.
So thanks Videotron. But just for today.
If you were not so lucky and missed the ads — love the Jason Statham Audi car chase and the Doritos tomfoolery — you can watch em all online, courtesy of Just for Laughs, (or hulu.com if you’re in the U.S., lucky bastards!). Just for Laughs even has PETA’e Vegetarians Have Better Sex ad, rejected for broadcast for being too … vegetarian. Way better than a V8 if you ask me.
