    I just witnessed the previously seen Dark of the Moon TV Spot (that was shown during Daytona 500) while watching the UK channel - ITV1. It aired during the advertisement break in the Champions League semi-final game between Manchester United and Schalke 04. Obviously it's nothing we haven't seen before, but that's definitely the first time I've seen a TV Spot of any nature in the UK.

    I don't know how much television coverage Dark of the Moon has had in the US or other countries, but all I can say is - Bay and Paramount are starting to give the general public here a taste of the new movie, and I can feel (almost taste) other TV Spots just around the corner.

    What do you guys think? Have you been seeing any or an increase of Spots on your screens, wherever you are in the world? Maybe the campaign has just started...

    Keep your eyes open for new stuff!

    Nothing here [I'm in Brazil].

    But that's normal, we only see TVspots for a movie when we are weeks [or days] before the opening day [If I recall well, ROTF Spots were only seen in TV one week before ROTF hit theathers].

    Which is sad, there's nothing more awesome than seeing watching your TV on automatic mode when all of sudden [Warpath] KABLAM [/Warpath], a TV Sopt for your most awaited movie of the year comes!

    Seirously? Damn, I have to watch more TV then.

    Even better then, like I said before, my heart fills with joy when I all of sudden the spot comes and get you unprepared! It's like...PURE MAGIC.




    Okay, okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit.

    As I said, it was only the same spot that was aired months ago during Daytona 500. But I have to say, it did feel a lot more exhilarating being on a television screen as opposed to the internet.

    One of the trailers aired a couple of times during the 1st round of the NFL draft here in the states on ESPN.
