Thread: Super bowl commercials?

  1. #1

    Super bowl commercials?

    There's a fine line between edgy and weird.....

    Congratulations to the advertisers, you've obliterated it.

    WTH? WHO approved some of these, especially the taco hell and Calvin Klein ads?

    I wait until after the game is over and watch the commercials online! That way they aren't interrupted by football ... and I can skip the ones I'd rather not see!

    I must have been busy doing other things when the commercials were on. The only one I remember is the Clydesdale one - love the horse

    I thought the Budweiser Clydesdale commercial in the third quarter was sooooooo sweet!

    I was creeped out by the CK spot. Who decided that's appropriate for Sunday night TV? There were two with Stevie Wonder's song "Superstition" that I didn't get; and I didn't get the one for Coke with the showgirls and the cowboys, either. I didn't think the Taco Bell spot with the retirement home residents was funny, and it doesn't make me want to race out and eat there. Psy for pistachios didn't work for me; I wonder how much they paid to get him to appear in that ad.

    My all time favorite Super Bowl commercials are the one from last year with the dog "Here, Wego!" -- the one from maybe 4 or 5 years ago about herding cats -- and Mean Joe Greene for Coca-Cola from the mid-1970s. And any commercial with a Clydesdale.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Somehow Bud's ad agency ALWAYS does a good job with the clydesdales.

    The Doritos' ad was a tad past the edge of creepy as well, grown men wearing dresses playing with a little girl? sorry.....

    My favorite was Paul Harvey's Ode to the Farmer.

    The revamped 'cheetah' ad was a hoot and the Bud/Clydesdale horse commercials were the best.

    To say that most of the commercials sucked, is being kind.

    About the entertainment (singers and dancing)?

    Bring back "Up with People" that way I can watch the Puppy Bowl without having to keep changing the channel to see when 'it's over?

    I don't even remember what the ad was for, but the people kissing.............YUCK!!! I wish I could have fast forwarded past it. DISGUSTING!
    I liked the Taco Bell with the senior citizens, I thought it was cute. I liked the Goat one and the Clydesdale one, of course. There were a couple others I laughed on, but I can't remember them. I guess I'll have to go watch them online again to see.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    The absolute best spots were by Chrysler - once again. I did not see them last night. Here is a link - http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/arts-cu...ute-to-farmers

    Scroll down and you can see both of them.

    The stain in the shape of Joe Montana's face, and the guy's wife, the closet Ravens fan, washing the shirt! That gave me the giggles.

    I that Budweiser commercial. I think, over the years, Budweiser has had the best commercials - the ones that always make you go "Awwww"
