What Was Your Favorite Super Bowl Commercial?
Were you as disappointed as I was with the Super Bowl commercials? I thought there were more misses than hits during the game. Do you agree?
To me, there were no great memorable spots, like past ads with the Coke truck driver drinking a Pepsi, the kid getting sucked into a pop bottle through a straw, the guy working with a bunch of monkees, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan playing horse, or Bud Light spots with Cedric the Entertainer spraying his date with beer, or the naked guy sliding across satin sheets and out the dedroom window. Or Wassup!
Most of the Bud Light spots made me laugh, and I didn't see the Jerry Springer one, so the suits must have felt it wasn't as strong as the others. We'll probably see it during the NCAA basketball tournament.
The Chad Johnson spot for the NFL Network ran before Billy Joel sang the National Anthem, so you might have missed it. Chad had a lot of star power (Jimmy Fallon, LL Cool J, Rascal Flatts, Martha Stewart, Reggie Bush, David Beckham), but it wasn't really funny. I thought for a while it might have been a multiple part commercial we'd see several versions of, but that didn't happen.

Didn't see the Doritos duct tape commercial from the Batesville brothers.
