A couple of commercials

A football referee turns on his microphone and says the following:

"I totally blew that call. In fact, it wasn't even close. But don't worry, I'll penalize the other team for no good reason in the second half to even things up."

Anything that adds to the myth of the makeup call pisses me off. And this ad for Subway (the ref's admission is a "fresh moment") does that.

All fans believe in the makeup call, and anyone who has ever officiated a game knows that it's a complete fiction.

But the Bud Light ad where the defense says "Whoever sacks the quarterback gets a Bud Light," and an official rushes in from his position and blindsides the quarterback? That's a really fun one.
