Yes, I am aware that the Superbowl is actually a football game, and the main attraction is – or at least, is supposed to be – the competition between two teams.
But come on! You know it’s all about the commercials!
My pick for the winner? Bridgestone, who had two funny and original spots, one with Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head and another with astronauts. What do toys and outer space have to do with tires? Umm, nothing, but they were still funny.
Second runner up, in my opinion, goes to the Budweiser horse commercials. Cute, funny and memorable – the perfect combo for a Superbowl campaign. (See them here, here and here.)
And the loser in the big game? Definitely GoDaddy.com. Congratulations to them for continuing their legacy of being crude and juvenile. And way to go, Danica Patrick, for playing along. Two thumbs down.
Just in case you missed a few commercials (loading up on cheese dip maybe…or was that just me?), go HERE to watch all the Superbowl ads.
What were your favorite commercials this year?
The hulu and Taco Bell commercials were my favs. I’m a Diet Coke loyalist (will drink water–or anything else if Pepsi is my only option), so it pains me to say that Pepsi had a few good ones this year.
OH yeah! I forgot about the Alec Baldwin commercial for Hulu – that cracked me UP!
I didn’t watch it, but it sounded like it was quite a game (at least at the end)! And on one of my radio stations this morning, people were calling in about the commercials, and many commented on how they hated the GoDaddy.com ones. Hopefully GoDaddy.com listens. What are they selling anyway? I’m not sure I’ve heard of them.
Go Daddy sells websites. I think it is interesting that they turned PETA down for their racy ad, but allowed those…not that I was for the PETA ad, but they must have JUST barely stepped over the line!
I liked the potato head one the best :-D
I just watched a tiny bit of the game here and there, so I missed all of the commercials. I’ll eventually go online and watch them, then I’ll come back here and let you know which ones I liked, okay? See ya later!
the godaddy ones were bad. they had approached nbc beforehand, though, to see if they could do them. here’s an idea – if you have to see if you can do them, don’t do them.
i really wasn’t too impressed with the ads this year. (although i missed the first quarter, so maybe those were better.) they did have a commercial for my boys, though! (which i’m sure you non-minnesotans didn’t get, but i sure enjoyed!)
My favorite one was the one-second ad with the High Life guy that cracks me up!
And the Doritos Crystal Ball one was pretty funny.
Chris votes for the doritos one, but I liked the potato head one. Especially when she put on her “angry eyes”.
What was the video of? It says it’s been removed.
By far, the ETrade commercial with the golfing baby. Shankapotomous….my favorite new name on the very rare occasion I find myself on a golf course!
Hope to meet you at Blissdom!
Oh, bummer, chelley! It was the Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head commercial. I'll have to fix that.
Thanks for stopping by, Stiletto Mom! Hope to meet you this week, too!
Okay, I’ve watched almost of them. Here were some of my faves: Pepsi: Forever Young-I liked hearing Bob Dylan singing Forever Young and I liked some of the old pictures in that one. Doritos: Office Ball- That one cracked me up. Budweiser: Clydesdale Plays Fetch- super cute. PepsiMax: I’m good- That made me laugh too. Taco Bell: smooth moves was funny and I felt sorry for the girl. The guys scary. Also, I thought the words “Cerebral Gelatinizing” in Alec Baldwin’s Hulu were very funny.
I missed some of those, Brenda – I guess I wasn’t paying as close attention as I thought!
Ha! Thanks for posting a new link. :) Very cute commercial. I wonder why Mrs. Potato Head brought her angry eyes but not a spare mouth, though. Unless that was the second time it happened. ;) My brother has laryngitis right now and couldn’t talk yesterday. I think my SIL kind of enjoyed telling him that once in a while. ;) I told them about this commercial and they loved it. :)
the one-second high life one was good
