20080310_bruce_springsteen.thumbnail.jpgDuring the Super Bowl pre-game show, when Bob Costas asked Bruce Springsteen why he decided to do the halftime show this year after he’d passed several times before, the Boss responded:

I have an album to promote, dummy. It’s not rocket science.

Way to make your audience feel like you care, especially when you add in this attempt at humor from Springsteen right before he started playing:

I want you to step back from the guacamole dip! I want you to put the chicken fingers down and turn your television all the way up! And what I want to know is: Is there anybody alive out there?

Cynical much, Bruce? At least he didn’t mention that he has TWO albums to promote, one of which is the Wal-Mart exclusive he now realizes was

a mistake.
