Q:¬† It was July first that NBC broadcast the first TV commercial. What was the product?
A:¬† Watches.¬† Bulova paid nine dollars for a commercial during a Dodgers/Phillies game on July 1st, 1941.¬† For some perspective, a thirty second TV ad during the 2010 Superbowl cost close to three million dollars.
We talked about this this AM,¬† so if you're looking info about Project Surf Camp near Moro Bay, you can find it here. A great idea...teaching special needs kids to surf...probably something that they'd never get a chance to do otherwise. It costs the camp $160 per camper, but they only charge a $50 registration fee.
