Gear Patrol makes the big game

Vizio 2013 Rose Bowl Game

Vizio has officially presented the Rose Bowl for several years now and often uses their accompanying commercial time to tease the gadget-loving public with new products. The commercial that kicked off halftime this year was no exception, showing glimpses of a few unreleased devices we’re certainly excited to learn more about at CES. These include what looks like a Windows 8 tablet, a next generation Android tablet and of course, sleek-looking, new TVs. If you haven’t seen the spot already, we’ve embedded it above to study at your leisure. Look out for it on the air over the coming weeks as well. Pay close enough attention (*cough* — 8 seconds in) and you might even catch a glimpse of your favorite site, a.k.a. us. Special thanks to the fine people at Vizio for choosing GP for such a cool cameo. We are truly honored and can’t wait to learn more about what’s in store from the great American electronics company in 2013. With a resume credential like this, our dreams of landing a part in Rudy 2 are now that much closer.

Some men will argue there were better (if so, leave a comment). Some men will argue…

Mercedes C63 AMG Commercial | GP Salute

Television commercials, for the most part, are blasé. Little creativity and a lot of politics tends to sum up the results of most of what’s on the airwaves today. However, this spot for the 2008 Mercedes C63 AMG, which we posted on GP a while back made me want to take a second mortgage on…
