So, admittedly, I missed some sections of the Superbowl last night, especially a large 45 minute section around halftime. But from what I saw (much of the same in commercial terms as B-Dawg, there isn’t much to say.
The commercials this year were weak, especially when gauged against the all important chatter quotient. Around the “water cooler” the participants in the annual Monday morning quarterback routine were all scrounging to remember any half decent commercials. To that end, I’ll give my list.
Most Bizarre: The Burger King Whopperettes
Most Annoying: The Cadillac Escalade
Most Forgettable-but-still-Halfway Decent: Degree Stunt City
The beer commercial that made me laugh out loud: Magic refrigerator tied with the beer hidden around the office for motivational purposes
Favorite “Celebrity” Usage in a non-movie commercial: Jackie Chan for Diet Pepsi
Commercial that reminded me most of my love for monkeys: Careerbuilder.com in the commercial with the sales graph.
Best commercial not featuring spoken english: Fedex
The commercial that reminded us why we are in this purgatory of poor commercials: GoDaddy.com.
