The game hasn't happened yet, but I automatically vote against any commercial with that dumb talking baby.
Mine won't be shown until after the game, when Ben is saying his is going to Disney World.
But the one Chris posted... Is FANTASTIC
This one from last year was my favorite and will be hard to top.
Anything with Danica Patrick gets my vote!
Any commercial with hot women
Bet that one wins first place in the voting...
That is classic
I agree. Those things creep me out.
"All the ads" on YouTube ...
In no particular order ... ads I liked more than others (although it was a good year):
Budweiser 'Wild West' (A bit silly)
Bud Light - Dog Sitter (Lighter than silly)
CarMax - Kid In A Candy Store (Clever)
Miss Evelyn - Chevy Camaro (Inside the mind of an add writer)
Chrysler Eminem Super Bowl Commercial - Imported From Detroit (Made in America - a nice long form ad)
Tommy - Chevy Silverado (a lot of scenes)
Groupon - Tibet (and others for them ... stars giving the "for a cause" lead in then there is a flip to "I got a great deal")
2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid: Anachronistic City (Nice flashback tech)
SNICKERS - "Logging" (Betty White's ad remade)
DORITOS® - HOUSE SITTING - Crash The Super Bowl 2011 Winner (Grandpa!)
And my favorite two:
Bridgestone - Carma
He's got your back.
McDonalds - Proud Papa
Always an extra fry.
(Apparently 9 months old but it was aired during the Superbowl and was good.)
There were a lot of other decent commercials as well ... but those were the ones that stuck out to me.
I still think the Darth Vader VW commercial was the best, with the Snickers log-thumping of Rosanne second.
Right off... I'm with Chris Blount, the Vader baby was my favorite, and as usual I simply wish E*TRADE would go away.
I liked the Doritos commercial where the guy neglected the roomies plant and fish, then used the DOritos to resurrect them...and the ashes.
I thought they all pretty much stunk this year. A few of them were OK.
The one time of the year we actually watch commercials! :lol:
The irony of this thread is the mammoth effort many of us put into AVOIDING commercials on a year round basis and come the Stuperbowl we do the opposite.
Which kind of makes the point that if advertisers put the same effort year round into the ads that they create for the Stuperbowl, i.e. make them fun and entertaining, and kept them to a reasonable commercial break, all of this time shifting might never have happened.
People will watch a commercial... if it is fun and entertaining and not annoying, which some ad firms think making a commercial annoying is the way to make an impression.
It seems like Bieber was everywhere this last week!
Favorite lines: "What's a Bieber?" "Looks like a girl." In a commercial he is in.
The two favorites in our household were the two James Long posted plus the promo of "House" by Fox, a parody on the old "Mean Joe Green" Coke commercial which I can't find on YouTube so here's an article with the video as well as the original commercial video.
Also, Fox's Super Bowl promo commercial (posted here) has me salivating over their new upcoming fall show "Terra Nova"
Here's a thing on the Vader, Max Page. They are right, he does look a bit like a 6 year old Mark Hamill. He has a pacemaker, but they say he lives an otherwise normal life.
