The question this week -- Super Bowl week -- is always the same. Do people chatter more about the upcoming game, or the commercials?
Probably in the 50-50 neck of the woods, we'll guess, though there is a serious group of fans that wait all year just to see the ads. There've been some notorious commercials. And some that brought a tear. Or did we mean beer?
Now the Paley Center for Media is screening several earlier commercials -- and by "earlier" we mean commercials before 1990-ish -- through Sunday, February 7th. The commercials will be shown on the big screen, in a way probably most of us have never seen them.
And yes, the very very very famous Apple commercial from 1984 is in the bunch.
