From SuperBowl commercials to Shot Selection

Your blog post this week may take a little more work. Find a commercial that you can access online. Here are two links you may try: (I hope they aren't blocked by the filter... if they are, search for your own).

1. SuperBowl Commercials: http://www.superbowl-ads.com/

2. Classic Commercials: http://www.retrojunk.com/list_commercials.php

Now, post the link to the commercial and then write your "play-by-play" analysis of the shot selection that it uses. Obviously, if the commercial only has 1 or 2 different shots, it would not be a good choice for this assignment. Check on your fellow classmates... how well did they recognize the different shots we have been learning about in class?

GOOD LUCK!
