This isn’t news in the sense that it’s new, it’s more like holy-crap-how-come-I-never-knew-that news, if that makes any sense.  Anyway, remember the “Aaron Burr” ad from 1993?  The first Got Milk spot, the one that launched the most pervasive, most oft and annoyingly copied ad campaign in recent memory?  Yup, that was a Michael Bay commercial.  I’m not sure how to feel now that I know that.  On the one hand, you can’t deny that it’s a really solid, perfectly-executed commercial. But on the other, does this mean we have Bay to blame for an annoying, un-clever slogan that refuses to die after 16 years and can be applied to any product with a sufficiently hacky marketing department?  One thing is for certain: definitely could’ve used more tigers.
