New Little Caesars Pizza Commercial w/Scope
      #5524996 - 11/17/12 07:59 PM

Anybody else see the Little Caesars Pizza commercial with the Dad and the son were looking at the Moon with a reflector,
UPSIDE DOWN with the eyepiece pointed towards the ground.
Idiots......
My Rotten Cherry Tomato award for this year goes to this one!
Its worse than when a Movie does it, cause it is the focus of the whole commercial..

Yeah , I saw it the other night . The thing is that what they are using is called a ground inspector or a floor inspector .
They are used to check for cracks in the floor or they can be used to find ants and beetles and such in your lawn .

Don't think i've seen the commercial, tho it sounds on par with their pizza. I was gonna jokingly suggest whether this reflector had even been properly collimated before shooting the spot... but i'm beginning to wonder whether this case might be more along the lines of lens caps still being left on.

I once saw a *NASA* brochure with the same thing, GEM mounted Newt pointed at the ground.

Even my wife, who is not an astrogeek noticed the scope was pointing towards the ground.

Sounds like a top notch ad agency earning their cool million putting that *BLEEP* out to the general public! Mike

Yeah, I saw it last night in fact. Maybe it was pointed at a Little Ceasar's pizza they dropped on the ground, LOL. It was a really dumb commericial.

Well, they did put a dew shield on the mirror side to make it look like a refractor...wonder if it helped....

I don't think they did it intentionally, I remember a couple movies where these things happened, there was one
where a girl was showing a Comet to a Boy, they were looking through the wrong end there too,
I wish I could remember the name of the Movie..Anybody see it?

Not that it was intentional, but it does show a lack of attention to detail, which should be done in whatever endeavor one does....this just shows shoddy worksmanship and no pride in one's work....and the pizza ain't very good either...

I think it shows that when the general public thinks of telescopes they think of refractors.
