Kenton & Dan run down this year’s crop of “Big Game” advertisements from the brands that paid millions of dollars to produce very “safe” commercials during the Superbowl.
Dan & Kenton take a few moments to pay their respects to the late Alan Rickman, then run down the list of Oscar Noms (giving their completely uneducated guesses on who will win.) They pledge to watch all of the Best Picture nominees before the Oscars, so we’ll see how successful they are with that.
