This years superbowl commercials.

Wanted to start a post on this years commercials during the superbowl. In my opinion they were pretty weak, not funny at all. :no: So, what does everybody else think?

I liked the Pepsi/P Diddy commercial and I thought the New Mustang Convertible commercial was funny the first time but then they showed it like 5 times again and that sucked. Also the Bud commercial with all the animals was cute. :)

I saw a note about this on the news last night. I think they said it was more like 35%. Still way rediculous!

I usually get up and go do whatever I need to do when the commercials come on. Most of them are to the point of being abolutely ignorant anymore. That Mustang one was totally pointless Couldn't help but see that one as many times as it was on.

Also, wonder how much McCartney made for doing 3 measley tunes?

I liked the Ameriquest commericals - the ones where they were like 'Do not judge too quickly' - The store one (where the guy says 'You are getting robbed' to the person he is talking to on the cell phone and the store clerk thinks he is getting robbed and gives the guy a beatdown). Then there is the one where the guy is making dinner, and the cat knocks over the saucepan and he picks the cat up just as his wife (or girlfriend) walks in. The scene is really funny because she walks in and sees the guy holding the cat up, a knife in his hand, and sauce all over the floor (looks like blood).

Good stuff.

Other than that, nothing too spectacular in my opinion.

My favorite commercial was by Anheuser-Busch beer. The one where they show an american airport at normal time then walk in american troops and everyone starts clapping. ...that one brought a tear to my eye. :)

Did anyone get their ###### out this time around?

Why do they call it Football, when it's played apart from a kickoff, field goal or extra point with the hands?

IMO, the whole superbowl experience seemed to be below par this year. the pre-game hype was non-existent. the commercials overall were dull and boring, peppered by just a few good ones. the half-time show was the slowest i've seen in years. granted it was the cleanest but they could have done something else to really liven the show.

overall it was a rather bland experience. i really expected a bit more.

i personally thought this year's game was really exciting (all the turnovers, eagles leading in the first quarter). rooting for the patriots since the beginning made it even funner =)

I agree with you 100%. I think they just wanted to be safe in all aspects because of last years interesting halftime show experience.... :shifty:

I don't believe nobody brought up the Cadillac commercial.

It's the one where the Cadillac is in the tunnel acting as a bullet, and the tunnel is sort of like a gun.

I actually thought it was a pretty amazing, and creative idea.

I like the Cadillac one, but that's because I like Cadillac's new line of cars.

The GoDaddy.com commercial was interesting, making fun of the Ethics Board hearing and all that.

I hope they fired whoever thought it would be interesting, funny, unique, or in any way good, to have Gladys Knight playing rugby. It was seriously one of the most idiotic commercials I've ever seen.

There was also that one commercial with random people on the street doin some hot ass dancing, but I was never able to figure out what it was a commercial for. I just knew there was some vicious CGI pop n lock goin down. :yes:

Yeah, that one with the Spanish bird was pretty good.

Also, the one that had all the commercial clich?s, aka the one with Burt Reynolds getting kicked in the jewels by a talking bear, was great.

Only two commercials stood out this year, IMO. The Ameriquest with the cat that spills the sause...I laughed so hard at that one. And then the Bud Light with the skydiver...other than that, pretty bland.
