GoldieBlox at the Super Bowl

Intuit is sponsoring a contest, Small Business Big Game, wherein a small business can win television commercial time on the broadcast of the Super Bowl. GoldieBlox, an awesome company that makes engineering toys for girls, is in the Final Four. You can see their video (and the other three in the running) here, and vote once per day on every web-accessing device you have. Check it out, won't you? Even if you prefer one of the other companies, it's great exposure for deserving small businesses.

I just took a couple of minutes to watch all four videos. As far as I'm concerned, it's no contest. Nothing against eggs, beer, or fertilizer (the other three products), but this is the only one that's truly innovative.

I think the "Rube Goldberg" YouTube video, in a cut-to-one-minute version, would make a great commercial. I confess, though, that I'd like them to refine the soundtrack, making the song more sung and less shouted. Right now, it grates on my ear.
