    Now that this year's Superbowl is history, what was your favorite commercial?

    Mine was the one with the guys on the roof tops BBQ'ing and drinking beer. One of the guys falls through his roof.

    Another favorite for the women in my house was the Bud Clydesdales pushing the cart for the younger horse. I have to admit, it was one of the best.

    I heard on the radio this morning that the "Magic Fridge" commercial was the overall favorite.

    The...
    I'll go for the 13th edit of the GoDaddy.com spot -- without a doubt, the most compelling, suspenseful and gratifying tv ad in HD I have ever seen. :sure:

    Speaking of HD, be sure to take part in the Superbowl "Ho-Hum" HD poll HERE.

    Well, I was actually pretty underwhelmed with most of the commercials (that I saw, probably only caught about half of them :eek:) this year, but I kinda liked the one with the stadium full of spectators with the cards that show a bottle on one side and the beer glass on the other. Yes, I know it was CGI, but it was still cool!


    I know this isn't what you asked, but two of my all-time favorites are Terry Tate Office Linebacker (You know you need a cover sheet...! Hey, Janice! :grin: ), and the one with Cedric the Entertainer, where he's dancing around the kitchen with the Bud Light and it spews all over his girlfriend's hair! Those two still crack me up!! !rolling


    Sorry, but if a commercial doesn't leave me ROTFLMAO, or saying "COOOLLL!!", then I'm just not impressed with its attempt to sell me something. :)

    But that's just me! :grin:

    My favorite where the Ameriquest commercials... "Don't Judge To Quickly"

    I've loved that campaign since it was premiered last year.

    I thought the commercials were generally weak this year, too. Probably my top 3 were:

    1. Don't Judge Too Quickly. (The airplane one was pretty hilarious.)

    2. Cell Phone with Theft Deterrant.

    3. Whopperettes. Why? Because it was so stinkin' ODD. I liked it when they did a "pile-up" on the bun. I couldn't help but think about how proud those actresses would be to have it on their resume that they were a piece of lettuce.

    I liked the Clydesdales playing football and the field being "streaked" by a shorn sheep.

    Fed Ex's Caveman/Dinosaurs.

    Ameriquest's "Don't Judge Too Quickly"

    Most of the Budweiser ads.

    [in that order]

    The one I hated the msot was that "Whopperettes" one - that was *painful* to watch. Partly because it was so LOOOOONG.. Maybe it just seemed that way.

    The Clydesdale colt was my favorite by far.

    And, please, if you have a consummable product to promote, don't use the phrase "brown and bubbly" to do it.

    My least favorite commercial was the one showing the officiating crew getting new glasses. OK, so in reality it was the Bud commercial with the little colt pulling the wagon. I thought that was pretty cool.

    Here's something I saw today..

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/front.htm

    Scroll about halfway down. There's a block on the right that says: USA TODAY's 18th annual Ad Meter. Under that, there's a link that says: View all the ads and rate them yourself. (Sorry, but that link doesn't work right by itself. Have to go from the main Super Bowl page, the link I posted.)

    I like the Leonard Nimoy one! :D (Didn't see that one last night..)

    I liked the FedEx and the Magic Fridge. However, due to some noxious substance spewing out of both orifices (orifii ?) of my body ( :barf: !pushit! ), I only saw the first quarter and slept for about 13 hours until about 8am Monday morning.

    I think the best ads were:
    1) Magic Fridge (by far!)
    2) Sheep streaking...
    3) FedEx Cavemen
    4) Office beer/hide and seek (funny)
    5) Sprint anti-theft detterent

    I think the Ameriquest ad was a bit spooky for kids....didn't mind it personally.
