The Super Bowl is over. Beyonce‘s boobs stayed where they were supposed to during the Halftime show (and she kicked ass), someone lost their electrical engineering job, and the Baltimore Ravens won.
I’m only able to report any of that as a first-hand account because I tuned in (like many of you) to watch the commercials. Some made me laugh, some made me cry, and some made sure that I would never, EVER buy the featured product.
Kia‘s “Space Babies” made me laugh because WHAT PARENT ISN’T totally fearing this question? And what a lovely answer. (See also: squealing baby rhino in a spacesuit!)
Oreo‘s “Whisper Fight” was a decent effort, but the last line delivered by the police nearly made me pee my pants. I am probably going to use that in the future. While whispering.
Budweiser continued their Clydesdale ads with another called “Brotherhood” which used Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide as it’s soundtrack. OH, THE WATERWORKS.
Hyundai‘s “Team” was awesome, and those kids were badass. Bear wrestling? Indeed.
The Volkswagen commercial? Hilarious. Probably more funny to me thanks to the Minnesota joke.
A greased up fit guy wearing underwear? Calvin Klein stuck with what they know, which is black and white and – most importantly – NAKED. (Completely uncomfortable to watch in the same room as your father-in-law, thankyouverymuch.)
Really GoDaddy? REALLY? If you’re really going to watch this clip, I recommend turning the volume down. So gross, so typical GoDaddy.
Any other commercials of the eve I missed that you totally loved? (Or totally hated?)
