On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it around 4 to a 5.

Of course I didn't say great. I just said not bad.

On the other hand, this one is BAD.

It might be bad, but I think people will remember the VW commercial longer than they'll remember the Toyota one.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Volkswagen probably needs a new agency, and fast. Hopefully they get better from here.

Oh, mon! I guess they don't want to sell any VWs in Jamaica.

That is baaaaaad. And it won't sell many in the rest of the world.

I watched the Pro-Bowl recorded started 1 hr and 30 min after the start and it was a real pleasure to skip the softball interviews and COMMERCIALS.

WHAT A JOY FOR ME (maybe not U) there were at a lot of turn overs and not a lot of fake hits either

In 46 Years -I'm am recording the super bowl for the first time so I can SKIP the COMMERCIALS, I hope you all enjoy them I will be skipping them :lol:

I say that it is BAD. I miss the Darth Vader ones. I guess that they couldn't get him this time around since he is either forcechoking Mickey Mouse or the producers of Episode VII.:lol:

Another thing that I miss is when in the old days when a awful commercial came on, it was interrupted by the Energizer Bunny.

All the SB ads Canada didn't see. www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/02/03/super-bowl-commercials-2013-canada_n_2606492.html Did you see it?

Anyone see the Motive CTV premiere after the game? I bet that no one here will talk about it till ABC shows it in the summer. I never know why people wait that long. Also happened with Continuum and Lost Girl, no one talked about it when they first aired.

The Clydesdale commercial was good, but the ending was predictable. I also liked the Tide Montana stain ad.

The Doritos/Goat commercial got a chuckle out of me. Other than that, not so much.

Mercedes ad was well written and tightly shot.

I thought the VW commercial was pretty funny!


Mercedes ad was well written and filmed. A Mercedes starting under $30k? Wow!

How about the 30 minute GE commercial... Wait that was a power outage lol.
