recommendations being put forth, in particular, he takes issue with the discouragement of the issue of helicopters. that monitors the large crowd to figure out which way the people are moving. on the flip side, those that are pushing for accountability believe that some of the recommendations do not go far enough. they believe this is common sense. we reached out to the group called the "berkeley cop watch" and we have not heard back from them. we also reached out to members of the cities, a representative from the city and also to the police department, and we are waiting to hear back from these folks. super bowl city continues to take shape in front of the san francisco ferry building. there are several detours in place around the area, but the commuters tell us that it has

computer. the most popular ad i've seen is the volkswagen for sought -- passat, where the little kid pretended he had the force, and the father played along, everybody loved it. >> i wanted to see the commercials in the super bowl, and now with the internet in the top five lists out as soon as the game is over, how has the internet changed how the people that make the commercials do their job? >> the inner net has changed everything -- the internet has changed everything, and they used it treated with secrecy, but now they send out the teaser videos, or they will air the entire slot online before you even see the game, and this is a smart move. by the time the spot comes onto the tv, your friend next you can say they saw the spot

only $30,000. how do you know who is the winner after, is there consensus on the internet, the amount of tweets, how do we know? or how do you know? >> i look at two things, sales and longevity. the brady bunch takeoff was a great commercial, and it is still running. that tells me that that ad is selling the products and is still popular. thank you for joining us, talking about commercials airing on the super bowl. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, two years and $20 million later, the grand reopening of the dolores park, and we will tell you about the new features, coming up.
