That usually surprisespeople because,

uh, look at me.

Why would I cheer for mynatural predator?

It's a great Superbowl thisyear not only because of

the game but, of course, for theincredible commercials.

One big achievement inSuperbowl commercials this

year, of course, was theomission of a particular type

of sexist commercial andthat's the commercial where a

man chooses a beer over awoman.

You know, in all thesecommercials? Right?

The archetype is basicallythe man and the woman are

chatting in a bar and all ofa sudden,

he gets distracted and looksaway and will say,

"oh, my God, that's amazing."

And she'll thinkthey're still talking.

So she'll be like,"really, you think so?"

And then he'll be like, "no, notyou, that beer over there.

"Not you, object, that object."

That's basically thatbeer commercial.

Now some of you might bethinking,

"Hari Kondabolu, how do youknow that man was even

interested in that woman?

How do you know that manwasn't a gay alcoholic?"

No, progressive dreamer,we're not there yet.
