G.I. Joe TV Spot second most watched commercial online from the Super Bowl

This news was broken on TFW2005, as they report that the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen TV spot was the most watched commercial online following it’s debut during the big game on Sunday, but the best news to Joefans is that this same article shows that the G.I. Joe TV Spot ran second.  While Revenge of the Fallen still beat out G.I. Joe by nearly 2 million unique views, the fact that G.I. Joe ranked second is great news.  According to this article, the TV Spot beat out the Pepsi commercial “forever young” by over 50,000 views, and was uploaded to the internet 279 times compared to the Pepsi one, which was only uploaded 33 times.

This is a great sign that the G.I. Joe film is appealing to a mass audience, and hopefully the momentum continues to build…  and just because I’m always looking for an excuse to post it, here’s the trailer again, courtesy of

A new look

I’ve really liked the new “look” of GeneralsJoes, but there’s always been a limitation to the width of the central column, which was affecting how the pages were coming out.  I got a bit sick of dealing with that, so I moved to a more “flexible” width WordPress theme and added some drop-down menus as well through css for easier access.  It’ll also give somewhat easier click-access to widgets in the sidebars if wanted.

Anyway…hopefully this will give me a bit more flexibility and help the page not look so screwy.  The Brandon Jerwa interview really showed me that this center column was way too narrow.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
