Since I missed the Superbowl (I think France is the last place on Earth one could expect to find such an American spectacle), I’ve been reading reviews of the commercials on the Internet and watching them on Adcritic. So far I think the funniest part have been the repeated slams on Andersen Consulting Accenture. My friend Kel works there, and I have to kid her about the completely cheesy name. And what is that “>” above the “t”? You can’t even reproduce that in HTML! I went to their corporate site, and the only place they properly spell their own name is in the gif image on the front page! I also found a story on Slate in which Rob Walker details the story behind the name switch and the split with Arthur Andersen. *snicker* Ah, bitchy I.T. gossip. I love it.
