Per e-mail: “I have worked in advertising as an account planner for awhile and I understand the communication message they are trying to convey; But as someone who does not rake in 100+K, this spot is truly demeaning and very snobbish.”

“In 2006 the US Census reports that only 5.6 percent of individual income earners made 100+, and I am positive with the current recession that number has not risen much in the past two years. So to run this spot during a very popular national football game with a huge national audience where an overwhelmingly majority does not make 100+K is truly asinine.”
