Oh no

posted by BH

Worst. Halftime. Show. Ever.

Bad sound. Piped-in audience noise. John Fogerty singing old songs. United Way flags unfurling. The most anti-climactic fireworks usage ever. Guh. I like that they get fourteen people to stand right in front of the stage to act like it's a great show. It's even better when they show the fans in the stands, there to watch the game, doing nothing. CBS cameras found one lady rocking out in the stands, surrounded by nothing but bored people sitting on their hands.

Is there a special class in cameraman school in which students are taught to create the feeling chaos by zooming in and out real fast, shaking the camera, or tilting it at weird angles?
