Yesterday I found myself at a Superbowl Commercial Party and I must say one of my favorite commercials was Garmin's. Probably because it had a mapping relating theme. If you missed it here is the full Maposuarus music video.

After watching the ad there are a bunch of people in this office referring to themselves as outdated Maposauruses.

But as the Maposaurus says in his interview "somtimes you just need a good old fashioned map"

A watched the game with a few other guys. While I sort of liked the commercial, it was a dud with everyone else. So I'm not sure how well it did with Garmin's target audience!
