There are two kinds of commercials during the Super Bowl fancy ads for products and longer than usual movie spots for Blockbuster movies.
The Best Super Bowl Commercials
Best Buy (Amy Poehler) – Asking Amy
AMY POEHLER IN ANYTHING IS THE BESTEST EVER!!!
Bonus Extended Cut because you need more Amy!
Audi – Prom
This commercial was very cute. I love the fact that the kid doesn’t necessarily get the girl in the end but still had an awesome night, black eye and all.
Tide – Miracle Stain
This one is hilarious and then ultimately very sad —poor sad 49ers LONG LIVE THE STEELERS being the only team with six Super Bowl WINS!
Samsung – The Next Big Thing
Paul Rudd + Seth Rogen = Magic!
Best subversion of gender norms
Doritos – Fashionista Daddy
Usually this kind of ad would make me roll my eyes —hahaha dudes in dresses hahaha— but the dude with the beard totally sells it!
Best use of THE ROCK
Milk Mustache Campaign – The Rock
I love The Rock —for realsies!
Best Old People
Taco Bell – Viva Young
Old people can have FUN too people!
Go Daddy – Perfect Match
This commercial has a lot of grossness to it but the audible sounds from the kiss are the most disgusting thing of all —well that and the fact that people think it’s funny to make fun of nerds! Is there no douchier company than Go Daddy?
Budweiser Black Crown – Coronation
The only thing this ad acomplished was for my mother to go get a beer but it wasn’t Bud’s FANCY beer it was a Yuengling Lager!
Waste of Kaley Cuoco
Toyota RAV4 – Wish Granted
I wanted this to be better but alas it was just boring and didn’t really say anything about the new RAV4.
Biggest Warhorse Rip-off
Budweiser – The Clydesdales: “Brotherhood”
Yes, it’s touching but it’s also like the *SPOILER ALERT* end of Warhorse.
The one that might have been offensive but wasn’t as nearly as offensive as all the dumb GoDaddy.co ads
Volkswagen – Get In. Get Happy.
Well it’s dumb and it’s nowhere in the same universe as the “Darth Vader” ad of a couple of years ago but whether or not it’s offensive, I’ll let others on the internet fight that one.
Product that I was excited about seeing an ad for
Redd’s Apple Ale – Bar
Redd’s is great and they sell it at 7-11!
The Movie Spots that were the most exciting
Star Trek: Into Darkness
I’m so excited about this movie I have watched this spot about 30 times between last night and today.
World War Z
The more I see from this movie the more excited I get. I LOVE ZOMBIES!
Fast & Furious 6
I love Vin Diesel as much, if not more than, the Rock. Paul Walker is a horrible actor, so just ignore him and watch Vin and The Rock be AWESOME!
Iron Man 3
Robert Downey Jr. is hilarious but this movie better be better than Iron Man 2. [OK I still have your copies of Iron Man AND Iron Man 2. I know where they are! I’ll watch them soon, I promise! -M]
Oz the Great and Powerful
I’m kind of excited about this movie but maybe it’s just cause I love everyone in it. [I saw Return to Oz in the theater as a kid and walked out. I would walk out of this too. Unless I was drunk. -M]
