All righty. I hope there's none worse than the Hyundai commercial. It may be that I just loathe group-singing in commercials (excepting the Coke ones). Intel: bleah. (In general, don't expect to see any this Bowl) But I can see where a foreign car company might want to show how really into that totally American phenom, the Super Bowl, they are. But for me, it falls way flat.

Maybe a category for most $ spent with least impact. So far, still in Q1, the Elton John-Pepsi commercial must have cost a fortune. Great costumes, lousy "story".

And is this the first time Chevy has actually mentioned Ford in their commercials (lots of previous knocking, but hadn't noticed them using the name)

Ford asked them to pull the ad.NBC refused.There's a link on FOXNEWS.com but it leads to a story on the TSA telling vendors how to spot suspicious items.

I knew there'd be a least one smart-a** notation thereof.

You do realize that titles are not editable? At least not by us mortals. (Prolly Mods can, so feel free, Mods.....)

I liked the kid peeing in the pool. Reminds me of well...never mind. :D

Frankly, I'm tired of every other commercial featuring dogs. I love animals, but enough with the canine commercials.

Ok, I think my favorites were, in no particular order:
Cheetah
VW
M&M
Bulldog
Wego
I thought the extended CRV commercial was funnier

And I just wish GoDaddy would stop.
Amen! The Italian lady was again hot, but I've never felt close to that looking (or driving) any car...like the guy was supposedly entranced.....I don't remember the car, but I remember her!

I'm stunned. Assuming amusing isn't a requirement for best ad, for us far and away the best ad this year was Chrysler's "Halftime in America" featuring Clint Eastwood. For those who went to the bathroom and missed it (and I'm putting it back up as Chrysler put it on YouTube to be shared):

As noted in this article:
For the second consecutive year, Chrysler made viewers fall silent with a gritty, gut-level ad celebrating Detroit -- and built around an icon not known for shilling for products.
