Jamaica wins the Superbowl

Yup, Jamaica was at the Superbowl. From Bey to VW, foreign was clearly taking cues from yard. As a demonstration of this fact, I’ve collected some of the best tweets referencing Jamaica’s presence. Some of my faves had to do with the blackout. Jamaicans have a sense of humour–and the remarks take the USA down a peg or two. Enough with first/third world characterizations. The powercut placed the US on a playing field no better than anywhere else. And it’s always nice to find an opportunity to poke at the incredibly expensive JPS electrical company.

@Lacey_World So Bahamas paid for an ad and Jamaica got free advertising. #superbowl

@DebiBunni Poor Bahamas spent millions for that ad and Jamaica got free ad space from VW and Beyonce… rough…

Then, of course, there’s the response to *that* ad:
