We were in the presence of wrestling royalty a couple days ago when Y2J himself, Chris Jericho, came to Attack of the Show to talk about his new book, Undisputed. We were able to catch up with him after the show and talk with him about what it's like to be a WWE wrestler, what his legacy might be, and whether or not we'll ever see him in a ring again.
On an average day, nobody likes watching the commercials for a television program. On Super Bowl Sunday, the commercials are the best part. With the big game just around the corner, we’ve decided to take a look back at the greatest commercials in Super Bowl history.
1. Apple (1984)
Apple’s 1984 ad from, you guessed it, 1984 is probably the most recognized Super Bowl ad of all time. It’s clever, intense, and most importantly, original. No sexual innuendo, no over-hyped shock value. It blurs the heavy line between product advertisements and pure entertainment and for that one minute, you forget you’re watching a commercial. Plus, being an Apple commercial, it is totally ironic and hipster. A commercial about not following the crowd, being an individual, and buying an Apple product. LOLZ. Love it.
Unless you've spent the past week and a half in stasis, or in a Mrs. Winterborne-type coma, you know that Sunday brings with it the game-of-all-games, the Super Bowl. This year's combatants, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, are two storied franchises with long histories that make them two of the most important teams in the history of the sport.
Every year, here at G4tv.com, we make our predictions for who will win the game. Usually, as in last year's Feed article, it's based on videogames and what they might tell us about the future. We're down with that idea at Attack of the Blog, but we wanted to try something a little less scientific, namely comparing aesthetic points of the cities of Pittsburgh and Green Bay themselves, to see which one was truly worthy of winning the title.
Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day in sports of the year, so check out the 2011 Super Bowl ads and have a laugh. Or ten.
Danica Patrick and 2011 GoDaddy Super Bowl Ad: Edgy or Annoying?
Danica Patrick and Jillian Michaels return to the 2011 GoDaddy Super Bowl Ad campaign. And the preview is exactly what you’d expect: Danica and Jillian get semi-naked to perform “some crazy stunt” that they’re “obligated” to perform. Super edgy stuff. It was especially edgy when GoDaddy did it in 2007. And then even edgier when it was done in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Innovative, creative, and empowering. No, really.
From time to time, I like to take a break from violent video games with lots of fisticuffs to enjoy some real world violence with lots of fisticuffs. That being said, MMA Chokehold, featuring Blair Butler and MMA fighter Jason Chambers, is my staff pick to close out the first week of Epic April.
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin opened a can of whoop-ass on the AOTS set yesterday, drinking a beer with Blair Herter (who was lucky enough not to get a Stunner in the process) and talking about his new movie, Damage. We caught up with the Rattlesnake after that, and talked to him about his acting career, as well as the birth of the 'Stone Cold' character in the ring. He also talked a little about his love of improv, and what it's like to be the other person in the ring when The Undertaker is coming after you.
The G4 offices is a little Olympic crazy with all the winter competition going on, but let's be honest. Wouldn't the global sporting event be a little more interesting if all the contenders gathered in a big gym and threw a bunch of balls at each other instead?
Most of you guys are probably excited about Superbowl XLIV but for those of you who like to fight down and dirty inside the Octagon, we've got UFC 109 coming up on Saturday, February 9th.
Join celebrated MMA fighter Amir Sadollah with Blair Butler and Kevin Pereira today as they discuss their picks for the two battles featuring Nate Marquardt vs. Chael Sonnen and Randy Couture vs. Mark Coleman. Perhaps they'll roll their sleeves up for a fight over their own! Tune in to G4 tonight at 7p for Attack of the Show.
