GMA 7’s Ad Fest

March 16, 2008

GMA TV’s so-called live coverage of Pacquiao-Marquez boxing bout dubbed “Unfinished Business” was reconstituted late into the day into A Festival of Advertisements featuring as side show the replay of the rematch.

If you know the result in advance, interesting things you can do besides watching and pontificating about the game, in between cursing the network, of course. In my case, I turned researcher. Longest ads time in between rounds is 8 minutes and 30. Shortest is 5 and 30. Average would be about 6 and 30.

Each round is 3 minutes. The game lasted all of 12 rounds. Not counting the singing of three national anthems which came in three installments.
