I didn’t even know there was a commercial about Fluther.

Do you remember the form of it? Like whether it was a TV commercial or an online ad?

@KRD Maybe there wasn’t and I’m just completely delirious? That’s why I’m asking the question. :P

@Mimishu1995 I think it was actually on television? Though, again, entirely possible that I’m totally off base here. My memory has been pretty shot during the pandemic.

@raum Yeah, just asking so that I have an idea of where to look :)

Actually, now I’m thinking it might have been one of those Apple commercials where they featured an app?

Mimishu1995's avatar

Haven’t found any commercial so far, but I found this article that talks about an app.

I never heard of a commercial for it and I was pretty aware of Fluther from the beginning.

Just sent this question to Andrew and Ben. Hopefully they’re around to scratch this brain itch. :P

I think it might have been related to the launch of the Apple App Store in 2008?

@raum I think there was a write up of it somewhere, perhaps in a tech magazine at some point. Or perhaps there were mentions of Fluther when Ben and Andrew went to work at Twitter?

Andrew was in a Superbowl commercial once, maybe that’s what you’re remembering?

raum's avatar

@janbb It was before Twitter. And I don’t read lots of tech magazines. :P

@nikipedia Maybe? Was that in 2008?

nikipedia's avatar

@raum I think it was 2014.

Mimishu1995's avatar

The plot thickens ~

raum's avatar

@nikipedia Okay, so not Super Bowl. This question came up when another Q asked how you first heard of Fluther. So, definitely 2008.

@Mimishu1995 Ha!

No. I think Leonard from Big Bang Theory wore a Jelly shirt in a show.

janbb's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 That’s not the Fluther t-shirt they sold though.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@janbb I think that Leonard from Big Bang Theory wore another real Fluther Jelly shirt in a show. I can’t find it.

janbb's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 That would be cool!

Did you check YouTube?

raum's avatar

@jca2 Yup. Searched on YouTube a bit but didn’t find anything. :/
