So this year, as I tuned into the Fox telecast, I sit and wait for the inevitable mention... and yet, nada! They've used the camera angle, and it is an awesome angle as the cars drive over the installation of Digger. And I've seen the animation pull out some ads from the side of the screen and such.
(Back in the day, it had been noted way back when, that Fox's David Hill wanted an animated mascot, much like Cletus from the NFL.)
But I got wondering why they stopped mentioning Digger? Why, after all that effort, would they be mum!
Maybe because the name Digger, as cute as it might seem, isn't the first time something animated has been named Digger.
I hate to say it, but Digger is the name for the Lamisil medication. Digger is the animation used to represent toe-nail fungus. Ug.
So maybe fox caught that and backed off a bit. But with that said, I still love the camera angles the in-ground camera provides! It's a unique and rare perspective.
