I’m still recovering from the party I attended last night, but in between sips of coffee and popping Tylenol this morning, I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on what everyone loves about the Super Bowl… The Commercials.
All in all, I felt it was a pretty down year for Super Bowl Commercials. So many of them had what appeared to be a great setup, but fell apart when it came time to show the advertiser. Coke’s ad featuring The Simpsons comes to mind in that department. Also, most of CBS’ in house ads were especially awful… enough with Neil Patrick Harris, already!
For the record, there were only three commercials I really enjoyed. The Doritos spot with the little boy slapping his mother’s date, telling him to keep his hands off his moma and his Doritos. That was funny and cute.
Also, there was a commercial with Brett Favre where he was accepting the 2020 NFL MVP. I have no idea what the ad was for, but it was great to see him having fun at his own expense.
And my last pick is an exception to the earlier statement I made about the in house ads for CBS… How in the world did they get Jay Leno to do a spot for The Late Show with David Letterman? And while we’re at it, how did NBC allow it to happen? Is there some kind of Quid Pro Quo where Letterman will be in an ad for the Tonight Show during the Olympics? Crazy!
Anyway, those are my thoughts. A little later I may actually feel up to talking about the game itself.
