At first I thought the Elizabeth Hurley ad was serious, and my jaw dropped. I thought she was a completely inappropriate spokesperson. Even when I realized it was an ad for Groupon, I still wondered why they used her and thought idea was tasteless. I love satire, but this wasn't funny, just tacky. It doesn't make me want to use the service. Sure, it's got people buzzing, but for the wrong reason. Groupon must have paid a ton for the celebrity director and spokespersons -- not to mention the many millions for Super Bowl airtime -- but they'd have better spent the money on a new concenpt.

Timothy Huttton, you have a well-reviewed TV show with decent ratings. Did you really need the money?
