Either I am older and more cynical or super bowl commercials are just, kinda, over. Some of them were funny in a "twist" way but isn't that just repeating what was funny in 1995? Same criticism of longstanding "running gags" like etrade... only Budweiser does a multi-year story well and even theirs is getting tired.
The Super Bowl is one of the few events where people will actually watch the commercials, and I didn't see a lot of attempts to step things up this year. Except of course the Star Trek trailer. It wasn't so much that it was a good trailer (I do think it was) but the absolute awesomeness of advertising something so geeky during the biggest football game of the year had me grinning.
