We're back let's find out if we get -- run so far for that -- -- -- TVs -- really did dictate -- or you know me.
I really don't think well maybe he should anybody well maybe became -- -- mixers more often.
Everybody comes to the -- but you.
They all leave with different parts the fact that it's it's through my friends but you know what you get for your career just into one of the -- time when the next one.
-- OK excellent I'll be there.
Is VW Super Bowl ad Reese's John -- general focusing on the action but is it a good dad and you don't think it is actually didn't thank you.
Could let you like it but they get stuck and he -- jamaicans.
Quite the opposite really -- -- All contrary they seem to make -- was removed I hope somebody whispered in my ear when I missed what you said.
I wound am -- happy to talk Greg let out in my view enough about that night.
Joseph you said it's a bad ad also.
Again I actually think you.
And correct answer but you -- you -- -- -- with the product but the point is obviously that the -- make you happy I actually bought three of them today at Virginia you look at you then you beat me positively beaming I don't think it's a roundabout way to demonstrate.
But isn't that the way commercials work these things.
It's not an effective commercial it's called soft sell in the in the does not believe the I would definitely when you're spending is billion dollars in the Super Bowl -- -- think people think.
I believe that's what the mad men call it a to slang term for the guys who work on Madison X.
And we got the damage done and it's been.
Also I thought -- -- -- -- chill Winston since lock stock and he's not in Paris to nobody -- Now -- is that.
Did you live in England didn't yes chill -- kind of a British isn't.
-- government what is talking about -- separate the phrase chill Wednesday and it comes from I think an old TV show in Britain in late eighties.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You get disappointment.
But at that and we kind of my segment.
I -- I need to read your -- more closely at.
Bill you asked how this is any more races than those racist -- dear red stripe commercials you actually some people are comparing it to and saying that they're both races.
I don't really know and -- -- -- that -- -- I don't know I don't either but I saw people saying that today.
Common people -- -- drink -- Jon you said VW who probably wanted some people call -- racist for the publicity.
Maybe true but we should point out that -- -- -- -- chief marketing officer told CNN quote we did our homework to make sure we weren't offensive that.
Right -- -- Al Gore answered it and it worked out well you know and the people under him so they were only following orders.
I think what he said he gets the criticism but he disagreed -- I played -- -- at a wacky Jamaican accent and he has he did.
-- about -- there are some talk that VW.
Might use they have a back -- bad as some companies do conceivable that they might use it at this one becomes too controversial.
USA today reports that VW has made their call and they will -- the -- spot during this.
-- -- the backup and it's a bunch and apparently a bunch of people who are famous from YouTube while gathered on -- -- together.
Yeah -- didn't think I was gonna know that and now I was I was opening it up for you to say a potentially worse idea involving.
Child which you didn't go to war -- now I would for the truth yeah I think have been funny or however -- had actually zip.
Well they have some -- doing blank I was told it was a really offensive by the lacked the night.
I had time we wanna read this if -- -- admiral Paul and -- -- yet Greg I think as I've proved most nights it's not my job to be funny.
-- President Obama says that he has decided be tough to let him play football acumen after -- -- -- agree with the president I kind of plucked out of yeah.
And you know ideally yeah.
What I wanna know that Jon is do you think would Obama take an imaginary -- skeet shooting with.
Of -- suppose it's.
Greg said this is about risk vs Xavier reward and I and you said you agreed saying these people are adults and making their own decisions all of which obviously it's true.
The question is -- are they taking risks that they're.
Fully aware of that they're not aware of as you pointed out -- a lot of information is coming out now about concussion the stuff like that you've got guys.
Who devoted her whole career to this not really realizing what was going on.
-- -- that's why the NFL has thousands of lawsuits against it because they allegedly covered up right kind of damage concussions can -- a person and several other charges involved but.
That's all coming out now also means that that -- already done you know now it's a matter of how to react to it ready.
Yes right isn't it ironic that President Obama had an absent father.
And he has an -- something.
Not it -- And what was the other -- actually -- -- ironic I don't know what should have been -- you know instant.
Point with the -- the they came to me about a minute ago about how about the interview with Obama sitting next to the -- Hillary Clinton.
And where's her back pain awareness may be -- I'm sitting on the empty chair with Clint Eastwood.
It was it's and that it's ironic that this isn't the night her father picked it.
Chair I -- father and by the way coincidentally on Tuesday the NFL players' union announced -- giving a hundred million dollar grant to Harvard to study health problems affecting current and former -- It's a good thing.
No additional -- there is a problem yet there is a problem.
-- -- -- If -- gate keeping your kids -- a pop Warner because of that I don't know if that's like that's I think but I do it but I think again.
As you move up in the world you get into the higher parts of risk the reward becomes greater and people make those decisions.
And it's a problem that exists in many other rounds and many other sports for them the military just in football -- military -- I think come the debt debt debt risks so much.
For so -- and I mean what it was good for the country but in terms of finances.
Our paychecks very small and they come back with -- injuries.
You know here's -- it's you have what you could turn on the other way at least they're -- ends there.
Health for a good cause whereas football players are you know doing it for entertainment -- the causes to make us happy.
And a part of your case try this -- yeah -- There's an upside to this story which serves very depressing apparently Obama isn't as nice understanding anti -- I don't again.
That which is good volley it's just awful.
Al Gore -- selling current Al-Jazeera -- said -- at the wrong question that it's not about.
Al-Jazeera getting its funding from -- oil money it's about Al Gore getting on a million dollars from -- -- oil money.
Did it it's the same thing though isn't it I think that that is basically what lauer was asking.
Well I don't know but he he he the way catches said.
Don't you have a little bit of a contradiction here that you're selling it to people who use oil money -- -- you might.
By you that might slip somebody back -- that's really what it is that's oil money going down never lunches here Al-Jazeera.
Hey Kevin gives you a hundred million dollars with -- -- money don't you feel a little bad about that.
-- -- -- -- I thought that's what he was in essence saying yeah but not -- now look at Clinton got the -- and -- -- I get the criticism might exhibit it and but it had.
Thought if I got there.
Is there chicken -- shortage a couple things -- -- you brought up that big chicken says corn is more expensive.
In part because -- federal government requires that 40% of the crop be turned into ethanol rights.
Says they only get a net -- 17%.
Of the corn crop used for.
Renewable fuel production.
Because when you produce filed the -- you have a cold product which is distillers grains if you anything about the corn game Greg.
You would know that distillers -- -- sold as high protein livestock feed for beef -- Acts still smells foul on me start programs -- -- all -- -- also need some not so much pamphlets on the -- gave up ahead.
You may he may rethink this is a monologue for tomorrow no I thought I had an easy day and up now getting some else to write about.
I think last year I think the answer to this problem is clear we need genetically modified chickens with sixteen wings whoa yes -- -- all all all I want is already thinking about this.
That is such a good -- -- Here's a couple headlines I saw today cut chicken wings shortage forces sports bars to punt.
That was front and that's from November 16 2009 for her.
That's from 2009.
-- chicken wing -- -- prices soaring that's from 2010 there's nothing new.
Yeah but -- did you do you recognize too great content in there well OK here's can't get it there weren't enough for a reason I hate ethanol which of course there is it.
Stupid and ridiculous and we're wasting money on it.
The industry group growth energy which is the ethanol and you know people.
They call the national chicken council statement I love that by the bench and they called it quote if you're the -- -- unsportsmanlike conduct.
Then they called penalties on them like roughing the facts and accuse -- of committing a personal foul but the worst part of it is dangerous fell foul with the W.
I think if you're gonna make up -- take it to its conclusion that clay.
Wasn't it didn't national chicken council 4013 -- report every year they come out window winner -- and -- up.
They should not let them.
Then the bird I.
I think the most ironic things that the corn growers in the -- particularly people now have the -- Nice.
I'm Depp yes you are I think I've learned something I'm not doing this story tomorrow if I didn't think it's too complicated.
Ethanol sucks that's who we now at the all sides the resident and.
