Book-related Super Bowl Ads

Baltimore is a football town, so we've got to watch. Best book-related ad definitely Bud Light book club commercial. "Do you like Little Women?" "Well, I'm not prejudiced. I love them all."

Dante's Inferno video game ad: Part of me is happy it gives the book more publicity. The other part is just disgusted. You know someone's going to say one day, "They wrote a book based on the video game?!" Random thought: did they have to license rights? Probably not. The book is public domain, though the translation isn't.

  1. MW says there's already an edition of the poem out w the video game cover (mentioned in NYT article on it, apparently).
