SS Digital Media’s Favorite Super Bowl Moments

The 2017 Super Bowl was one for the records. The first Super Bowl to ever go into overtime, the game had us all at the edge of our seats. From the commercials to the halftime show, all of us at SS Digital Media found different moments to be the highlight of the night. Here’s our favorite moments from Super Bowl LI.

Nick Skislak: Budweiser – This commercial was a great reminder of how we built this country.  Amazingly inspirational.

Michael Taylor: The Verizon commercials. They were some of the only funny ones this year.

Tessa Feeley: Melissa McCarthy’s Kia commercial because she’s hilarious of course!

Amanda Friedt: Did you guys check the Justin Bieber Six Flags Meme? Classic. The drones were amazing too!

Krista Krautner: All of the glorious food because everyone knows indulging in taco dip and wings is the most important part of the Super Bowl… What is football?

Michael Muscat: Julian Edelman’s unbelievable catch.

Dave Salazar: The drones during Lady Gaga’s halftime performance. They were so well coordinated.  

Natalie Roosa: Guacamole and all of the amazing memes posted during the game.

Allyssa Costanza: The Mr. Clean commercial was hilarious. I’m hoping my boyfriend was paying attention!

Elise Hubel: I loved the Lady Gaga Spongebob memes and the fact that they were posted within minutes of the halftime show.

3.14 Things I Love About the Internet

3.14 Things I Love About the Internet

Serious number significance is happening as I type. In honor of Pi Day, I’ve thought about this blog for 3.14 hours, & have typed it in 314 characters (spaces included, I’m not crazy) per paragraph. So whether you’d prefer your Pi apple, cherry, octo, or pizza; here are 3.14 things that I love about the Internet:

1. The Internet makes anything possible. The World Wide Web is at your fingertips, literally. The possibilities are endless. If I felt the need to exist in the forefront of people’s minds as Carol the 27 year old yoga instructor from Missouri, I totally could. I wouldn’t, but I could. Catfishers, I’m looking at you.

2. The joke’s on you – and you, and you, and me. Rumor has it that average joke intake per human lifespan has increased. But seriously, I can’t think of a better source for positive things existing in the world today than the people online who create all of the interesting, funny, punny, and clever jokes. Thank you!

3. What does Britney Spears look like with a dinosaur body? Now you can solve all of life’s greatest questions. There is no longer an excuse to leave your mind void of information.
