Advertisers spent $5 million per 30-second commercial slot during the 2018 Super Bowl: that’s over $166,000 a second. They spent a total of half a BILLION dollars throughout the whole game.

I pointed out that dollar-store push-pins did not communicate financial stability and commitment to the same extent that thick, solid frames made of wood or metal would.
