The little-known actors and actresses who star in Super Bowl commercials have one chance to make a career move after their brief but massive moments of fame. Some do. Some don’t.

Besides the endless hype, one thing, for sure, emerged from Sunday night’s Super Bowl commercials: unlikely stars.

Such as the pudgy geek who locks lips with the Go Daddy supermodel.

Or the super-friendly, super-happy white dude who fast-talks Jamaican dialect for Volkswagen.

Or the sexy robot who beats the stuffing out of the guy who touches her Kia.

Mixing sci-fi elements with tongue-in-cheek storytelling, the ad — one of the more elaborate narrative ads of Game Day — stars cute babies and baby animals galore.

About the “Hotbots” Commercial:

Hotbots Kia Super BowlKia made a statement with its Super Bowl ad for the 2014 Forte with a little help from former Miss USA Alyssa Campanella and a handsy, disrespectful media reporter.
The futuristic Forte is unveiled at a media event by a group of sexy cyborgs born from the likeness of Campanella as a slovenly news writer smears his greasy paws all over the vehicle’s pristine body. The cyborg unleashes a fury of quick strikes that send the reporter flying from the pedestal as she offers him a warning to “respect the tech.”

It’s probably safe to say he’ll never make that same mistake twice.

**Update**

DENVER – Automated cars won’t be allowed in Colorado this year after a state Senate committee rejected a bill to allow driverless vehicles.

The Senate Transportation Committee decided against the bill to make Colorado at least the fifth state where automatic cars are legal. The cars are under development and are touted as safer than human-operated vehicles.

The bill would have stated that automated cars must still contain licensed drivers, and that the cars would have to have an override switch so they can be driven manually if needed.

DENVER – Cars without drivers could be possible on Colorado roads – but first lawmakers have to change state law to make them legal.

The state Legislature is poised to do just that under a bill up for its first debate in a Colorado Senate committee this week. The Transportation Committee will consider whether Colorado should become at least the fifth state to change the law to specifically allow automated cars.

The driver-less cars are developed in California by Google. Colorado’s proposal would state that automated cars must still contain licensed drivers, and the cars must contain an “override switch” so they can be driven manually if needed. The “drivers” in automated cars would be allowed to text or type.

A few years ago when I carved a jacko-lantern, I couldn’t help but think about all the wasted food. So, I developed a method to remove the pumpkin meat without baking the pumpkin, making it impossible to use it as a jacko-lantern. I use the pumpkin innards to make several things, but my favorite is a pumpkin pie. Once you try this recipe, you will never want canned pumpkin pie again.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups pumpkin purée
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger*
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon*
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg*
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
9-inch pie crust, unbaked

*ingredients can be substituted for 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.

Directions:

1) Use a sharp knife to carefully pierce the top of your pumpkin. Remove the knife and insert a pumpkin knife into the slot. Cut a circular opening around the stem.20121030-195602.jpg
2) Remove the top. Use a strong metal spoon to remove the seeds and strings. (Put the seeds aside if you plan to make roasted pumpkin seeds).

3) Use the same spoon to vigorously scape the pumpkin meat. Set aside the pumpkin meat in a medium bowl. The more you scrape from the inside, the more purée you’ll have and the more your jacko-lantern will glow.

4) Steam the pumpkin meat for 30 minutes.

5) Blend the pumpkin meat in a blender or food processor, until it is practically liquefied. (If you have extra it will keep in the freezer for about six months).

6) Preheat oven to 425°. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pie pastry, homemade or purchased.

7) In mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. Add eggs; mix until well blended. Add evaporated milk, water and vanilla; mix until smooth and well blended. Pour pumpkin pie mixture into the prepared pastry lined pie plate.

8) Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for about 25-30 minutes longer, until the pumpkin filling is set.
