I think it originally aired during the Superbowl. A woman calls for help. Thor, Wolverine, Spider-man, and some other heroes anwer her call. They are digusted to learn that she only lost her Visa, and of course, since she’s fully protected by their policies, there is no need for any heroics. Underdog show up at the end.
Are the superheroes live actors or computer-generated? They sure look like CGI to me, but my wife is positive that they are live. (Not Underdog, smartass. I know he’s a cartoon.) Anyone have the skinny on this?
Who are the other superheros in the background? You can’t see them clearly. Pepper Mill figures that they just needed more people to make a crowd, so they just dressed up some folks in generic superhero-type spandex, and they aren’t really anybody. Maybe VISA didn’t want to pay Parvel more in royalties than they had to.
Proty is admittedly cool. A sentient asexual polymorphic blob broadcasting its thoughts in your head is a recipe for disaster in my book. How do we know Proty ain’t unspeakably EVIL? MMhm-umm. Gimme a shmoo!
…and why is Spider-Man doing an impression of Michael J. Fox?
Anyway, on the screen where the clips play (from ArchiveGuy’s link) you can see “This Place Sucks” in the lower right window. Kinda funny parody done using clips from “The Superfriends”. Fair warning: it uses sound from Office Space, which I have noticed winds up a few people 'round here.
