I didn't see any this year that were all that great, IMHO..
A couple were a bit different...but nothing memorable..
The one I liked the best is likely the "troops coming home" one.
Also, the animals gathering for the donkey in the Busch ad..
There was one in the beginning that I liked, but can't recall it.

I thought the Olympus ones were a ripoff of the jeans(?) one..

What did you like/dislike?

The damn Monkey with the banana in his ear - near the beginning . . .

"can you hear me now" . .. . .

And the Anhauser Busch commercial, salute to the troops . . . Applause in the Airport for returning troops. I have been on the receiving end of that kind of welcome, nothing like it in this world! Thanks Budweiser.

The finance company ones were pretty classic. The guy holding the knife and the cat with the red sauce all over the floor would have been SOL with any woman..... I mean, what do you say? "It's not what it looks like!"

Pretty blah.

The one I liked had a tag line that went something like "Don't judge too quickly."

Don't remember the brand name (not a good sign for the advertiser).

It involved a guy trying to hurriedly cook dinner for his mate. He's fixing spaghetti sauce in a tiny little kitchen and trying to control a white Persian cat that is jumping up on the counters. Anyway, while he's chopping an onion, the cat steps on the handle of the pot and red sauce goes everywhere, including the cat.

The final scene shows the wife opening the door and seeing hubby with a dripping red Persion in one hand and a big knife in the other with red sauce pooled on the floor.

Then the tag line: "Don't judge too quickly."

Cute.

I like the troops coming home ad, but they should have gone and filmed some troops actually coming home at ATL or BWI. The folks in the ad were hand picked folks who are stationed in the U.S.

I only saw the last 2 or three seconds of this ad. Was it filmed in BGR..??? It kind of looked like it might be, and I know they still greet every flight.

I have to agree with DL021 on this - the financial ones (it was either Fidelity or Ameriquest) were great. (the guy holding the cat and the knife with the red sauce on the floor, and also the guy in the convenience store reaching into his jacket while saying "you are getting robbed" into his cellphone headset).

The troops in the airport commercial was also very touching. I just wish companies didn't have to commercialize that kind of thing by putting a promotional website at the end of the ad.

I liked two of them. I liked the one where the guy said you are getting robbed, you are getting robbed and also the one where the guy is preparing the dinner for his date and the cat spills the sauce. When the women walks in she sees him putting a knife to the cat. Those were the only two that I thought were funny.

The troops commercial was touching, but its kind of hard not take it as at least a little explotive.


The Mustang Commercial was amusing the first time.

I liked the bud commercial with te sky divers

The insurance ad with the robot was good too.

YEs the Mustang commercial was amusing. Also I have to concur that the troops commercial was touching, i wonder if it was real though.

There was nothing spectacular, but my favorite was definitly the Cat and the sauce commercial. Its the only one that really made me laugh out loud.

The FedEx "Elements of a great superbowl ad" was pretty funny too, and I did like the P.Diddy Pepsi Truck one.

Other than that, nothing great. I was hoping for something more from Budweiser (although the troops one was touching), but I am willing to bet that many companies were a little hesitant to do anything too crude or over the top.

I saw more of MC Hammer today in Superbowl commercials than I have in the past 15 years or so.

I really liked the Budweiser skydiving commercial too. Didn't expect the pilot to jump out.

Yea, no kidding. The thought was there, which is nice, but shoot...send a film crew to BGR and you can film the real thing everyday with real people greeting the flights showing real gratitude.

Thanks! i think it was that skydiver ad that i had forgetten..

And yes, having true troops coming back would have been better but having to make a commercial is not something you want to have the public involved in, as i understand it...takes too long...

The 3rd one with the monkeys...showed one kissing the bosses butt...bit different...

Then the one with the people the size of a doll...smile but no laugh..

If one (me, specifically) were to points-score all the ads and all the millions spent, I would comment that, overall, the ads were as lackluster as the game.

Although things picked up a bit in late, most high-school games would have been more exciting overall, and with all the hype, I also expected the ads would have been more memorable too.

Shit, even the coverage of flybys sucked, and, the WWII flyby (good grief: a single 25 and a couple of 6s? Wifey and I do that when we get bored on a Saturday afternoon) was almost an insult to the "Greatest Generation".

Back to the ads...nothing I'll remember after sobering up tomorrow. BUT, I still remember the Bud Frogs and goal-kicking Clydsdales from before. Regards...Jack

Come to think of it, the Diet Pepsi truck ad was great the first time, not so good the second time around.

The Mustang commercial was an interesting take on Fargo (yes, it does look like that).

And the skydivers commercial was also quite good.

Dude you just joined up today? Damn, welcome.

And I didn't see the superbowl, sorry I have never given a hoot for sports, though I am looking forward to downloading previews of the commercials.

And no, I didn't drink either. I do not do it that often, when i do I go overboard.  Big thumbs up
