Why do I watch the Super Bowl when I have to look up what KO RET stands for? To see the commercials, of course. Companies paid $85,000 for each second of our eyeballs' attention.
I DID NOT LIKE the Snickers commercial and most of what came from Sierra Mist and Budweiser. They say this proves that I may not be a man, after all.
But I did enjoy the Toyota Tundra and Ford F-Series truck ads as well as General Motors' “Robot Suicide,” w/c I thought was blah till the very last seconds. Chevy HHR w/ the shirtless men polishing the car was okay.
GoDaddy had another big-boobs ad. They managed to sign up Danica Patrick and could have used her fame to graduate from sophomoric T&A ads. But, no... Bob Parsons has that greasy look that says he's a man fixated on mammaries.
Garmin's “Ultraman vs. the Roadmap Monster” and Emerald Nuts' “Robert Goulet Messes with Your Stuff” were weird, but made us chuckle. Coca-Cola Grand Theft Auto was cool, as are most of the Coke ads. E-Trade got its point across.
As for the much-covered ideas from amateurs, the only one I found even slightly funny was the Doritos Crash.
