Bowl ads

Here’s my take on some of the Superbowl ads:


Fed Ex cavemen — it was stupid, but I laughed at the end when he kicks the little dino, and then the big dino steps on him.
Bud Light with bear — the best of the night. I almost quit breathing I laughed so hard.
The Bud Clydes, as always. This year’s made me cry.
geriatric Fabio made me chuckle — dumb, but funny
The McGuyver Mastercard commercial…priceless
PotC 2: Hot DAMN! and it looks as funny as the first!


Burger King — WTF was that stupidity supposed to be? Do you think we don’t know what’s on a freakin’ Whopper by now? Or that we can have it our way? (Theoretically. Our BK is not great with special orders.) If you’d given $5m worth of Whoppers to Detroit’s homeless instead, I would have given up McD’s for you.
Jessica Simpson Pizza Hut — Ick.
Emerald Nuts —Druid? He looked like one of those little Jawa guys from Star Wars. Dumb, but not funny

Not quite sure:

Monster/robot/Hummer — I liked the “It’s a little monster” tagline, but the commercial…kinda dumb.

EDIT: For some reason, even though the link wasn’t long, having this link in comments dropped my sidebar. But this is from Alison:

You can see a lot of them again here.

    I liked the Budweiser one with the naked sheep. It started with Clydesdales playing football like last year but then a shorn sheep “streaked” the field and did a little dance.

    The streaker sheep was funny, too. I’m a sucker for anything Clydesdale. The dh’s favorite was something Sprint, but I didn’t see that one. And I loved the Budweiser flip card things that looked like the beer was pouring into the glass. That was just awesome.

    Oh, I forgot those! I was supposed to be taking notes on the laptop, but I enjoyed them so much I kept forgetting them.

    The Sprint one was hilarious. I think there might have been two,actually. But the one with the guy who had music for every occassion on his cell, and the guy asked him “What if your couch catches fire” was awesome!

    I think the s p r i n t word sends comments to moderation because of previous spam, but it’s hard to tell because my site sends all of MY comments to moderation. :rofl:

    I liked the Budweiser “magic fridge” commercial and the flip card one where they’re in the stands. I said the same thing to my daughter about the BK one…looked over at her when it was done and said “What in the hell was that?! How stupid!” ROFL

    Oh, the flip card one where they did the beer bottle being chugged? That was good, too.

    Except for a few major duds (BK and Emerald nuts) it was a good commercial year. :thumb:

    Okay, my thoughts

    The one Bud commercial made us all go “Oh how sweet.” The one with the baby Clydesdale.

    The naked sheep? We all just about peed ourselves over that one, being from the midwest and all. LOL

    The Fabio one? I personally busted a gut.

    And we all loved the magic fridge. How brill!

    But I hate to admit, or maybe I don’t, the burger k commercial with the layering of toppings?? Well, we loved it! Guys as well as girls. It was just so darn tacky, ala some of these stupid movies they make now-a-days that guys adore. But at least there was NOOOOOO doubt what product they were selling. It was just twisted enough to tickle my fancy.

    Jewell – the twisted sister
