Okay,So the Super Bowl Halftime Show Isn’t Going to be ALL About Bruno Mars

I was nearly driven out of my mind watching the NFL playoffs on CTV last weekend because they kept playing that damn commercial with the Bruno Mars song in it.  (Was it just one advertiser? Or was someone else using the song? Or was I driven into some sort of hallucination?)
