It was funny. But I really hate it when they do this cause I can see it just fine from where they have it in their hands and I can see their faces vs my tv screen being covered by a snowboard covered with neff and rockstar and Oakley stickers. It's not a big deal, but it's basically my only pet peeve.
If you understood this, why make the thread? This is exactly why they do it and the sponsors pay their bills. It's generally a good idea to keep the check signers happy no matter what you do for a living.
