Ahhh, I can see it now... A halftime Super Bowl Commercial...
High above the Earth, an astronaut is on an EVA. (very silent, as people look to their tv sets in their homes to see the commercial) and the astronaut is very carefully opening a locker on the outside of the ISS. A small satellite (resembling ECHO?) is revealed...solar panels and antennas deploy. The astronaut pushes a button, and the satellite is launched by some sort of spring-loaded mechanism, and begins to rotate as it moves away from the ISS.
As it rotates, you see a Pepsi logo come into view.
Ooooh, the possibilities.
I would love to produce that commercial.
