Don’t get me wrong, I love football.
But I’m not always that interested in the matchup for Super Bowl.
And like some of the more than 100 million people who tuned in to watch the New York Giants best the New England Patriots, 21-17, last night, I was more interested in the commercials.
Except I was completely disappointed.
Nothing really funny. Not much stood out. And let’s be honest, the dogs outshined every human on screen, including Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima, who showed up in two commercials (Teleflora and Kia.)
Easily, my favorite commercial was Volkswagen, which had to one-up its memorable (and viral) Super Bowl ad last year featuring a young boy imitating Darth Vader. The German auto company ditched the Star Wars theme (sort of) and replaced the boy with an overweight dog. And it was magic:
This ad has already been seen by 5.2 million viewers online
Another canine star was featured in the low-budget Doritos commercial involving a missing cat and a very convincing bag of chips:
So what did you think about the Super Bowl commercials? Better than last year? Better than the game? Better than Madonna’s half-time performance? You tell me!
The dog (animals) won hands down. But must admit I got misty eyed with Clint Eastwood’s ad for America? Or was it Dodge? Nothing really funny except when I spilled my beer on freshly cleaned carpet and my dog tried to clean it up. Madonna gives this older woman hope. My advice take off the boots and really show us you can dance.
The dog commercial was good but c’mon, one can never get enough of Adriana Lima. lol
No comment on Madonna. :>p
I didn’t watch the super bowl, I went to the beach to standup paddle because I knew the beach would be empty and it was. I had the whole beach and ocean to myself and I had a great time,
CAT: Ads were not particularly distinctive. So was Madonna. The football game was exciting enough.
I liked the Clint Eastwood ad. The theme of working together for the common good shows that the Aloha spirit isn’t only found in Hawaii.
