As recently as last year, 30 seconds of air-time during the Super Bowl cost companies up to five million dollars!

That's why in 2000, when E-Trade featured a commercial with two guys and a monkey dancing along to La Cucaracha, they couldn't help but call themselves out, saying, "well we just wasted 2 million bucks."
