“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
Super Bowl XLVIII
Football's biggest annual event is set for February 2 at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This Super Bowl, whose major sponsors include Dassault Falcon, is the first in history to be held in cold weather in an open-air stadium and also the first in the New York area, the country's top media market. Bruno Mars will perform at halftime, and rumor has it that a 30-second commercial spot during the game is running north of $4 million. Stick around during the breaks for what will likely be some of the most creative ads we'll see all year.
