Joe: “As soon as I saw that coin base QR code that was so different from everything else I’d seen, I told my wife ‘that’s the best ad of the Super Bowl.’” (17:10)
Robert: “Of course, they knew! This was all part of the narrative to be able to release a headline the next day that says, ‘So popular, it crashed the system.’” (19:01)
Robert: “Overall, I thought it was a pretty weak effort, other than a couple. Of the ones I really like was the Larry David Ad. I thought they did a really good job capturing the culture right now with NFTs and web 3.0 and of course it’s classic Larry David.” (21:35)
Robert: “When we look back 5, 6, 7 years from now we’re not going to point to 2022 the same say we point to 2000 or 2001. I don’t think it’s the same level of hype.”(27:49)
Joe: “My hot take on this one is that the music streaming business that they’re mostly known [Spotify] for is a lost leader for their podcast business.” (35:46)
Robert: “As soon as they [Spotify] own the centralized distribution, well now they start calling the shots.”(41:06)
