@TheresaJohnson I think they did it in a poor taste intentionally to last in peoples memory since General American public got short term memory. Groupon has sites set up for donation to the causes http://savethemoney.groupon.com

"It is clearly a mockery of american culture and not of Tibetan culture and the same goes for Brazilian rainforest and the whales. If you don't get the joke, you shouldn't jump the gun. Do we honestly think these actors want to make fun ofendangered species, whales, or cultures? We need to take a chill pill. Like someone else mentioned, they clearly said Tibetan culture is in danger in the beginning. That was the real message. And why would they ask people to donate fund to these very organizations they apparently maligned with their ruthless bad sense of humour." on facebook.

"People seems to be jumping the gun on Groupon ad. So many Negative comments on several posts on different media outlets. If you look at their contents on their site, they are bringing attention to lotta causes that needs involvement."

"I suppose any mention of a Free Tibet during the Super Bowl is better than none. Comodification is the way Americans understand things, and if Groupon donates to The Tibet Fund a little poor taste is probably worth it."
