As the Superbowl this year had no green and no gold (to both mine and Karen’s heartbreak) I actually watched the commercials. If the Packers were playing I would need the commercial breaks for important things like . . . well, you know. But for most of the first half I could do important things while was playing so I wouldn’t miss the commercials.
I don’t think this year’s crop was the best. Of course they really can’t top the original E-trade Baby commercials. They were so fresh and funny. Now the kid’s kind of “meh.”
I was looking forward to the Volkswagon commercial, which was supposed to feature people they’d found on Youtube being enthusiastic about something. A local girl was chosen because she’d cried on camera about the Packers losing to the Giants last year. It was upsetting, but I draw the line at letting someone film me crying and putting it on YouTube. However I never saw any commercial of the kind.
If you missed those all important Superbowl commercials, you can go here and view them all:
My favorites were the Taco Bell Old Folks, the Kia Robots and, while the Budweiser Colt was adorable, the commercial that made me tear up the most was the Paul Harvey/God Made a Farmer RAM truck commercial. That was beautiful.
Which Superbowl commercials were your favorites? Which didn’t you care for. Do you have an oldie but a goodie from previous years?
