    What are the odds of Tesla having a Super Bowl Commercial?????

    That would be so awesome and sales would explode.

    I doubt sales would explode. I dunno about you, but I don't have the urge to buy a Hyundai.

    Zero.

    I would much rather see Tesla spend 4 Million on personnel, service centers, stores, etc.

    The time for Tesla to have a SuperBowl commercial will be with the introduction of the Gen 3/BlueStart product, when its a more affordable car.
    It makes zero sense to do it now, they have more sales than they can manufacture product at the moment, and the Model S is too expensive for the majority of the SuperBowl target audience/demographic.

    The one Tesla owner in Louisana plugged in in the third quarter and blew the power grid. Investigation to follow.

    I heard on Faux News that the outage was caused by all the Volt owners plugging in all at once!

    seriously, those car commercials just seem like a joke given the entry of the S on the Market. gas burners are just outmoded rehashed technology that is destroying the planet.

    What is the point of selling cars you can't make?

    On Stupid Bowl commercial could pay for several Superchargers. Superchargers are far more important to Tesla's success.
