Superbowl Ads

Mon Feb 08, 2010 3:55 am

I don't know but I didn't think this years Superbowl ads weren't all that good. I did like the Simpsons Coca Cola ad and the Snickers one with Betty White. What did you think of this years ads? What was your favorite?

Google - "Parisian Love." Maybe not the best fit for the Super Bowl audience, but it's a fantastic (yet oddly minimalist) ad.

I liked the Dodge Charger one and the Bud Light one where they were stranded on an island. Boost Mobile and Homeaway.com had good runner-ups.

And the Brett Favre one with the retirement joke. That was pretty funny.

Most of the ads were stupid or just didn't work, especially most of the Bud Light ones. You are trying to sell a product, not just entertain.

Hyundai stuck to selling a product, introducing the new Sonota, that several models are made in the USA, using employees carrying a new car. I liked the use of Brett Farve as '2020 MVP' to note the 10 year warranty on major parts of their cars.

Audi's 'Green Police' ad was clever making fun of the 'Green' movement and getting in the introduction of their new diesel powered cars.

The Snickers ad was clever.

Please no more ads with guys in undwerware, or crotch hits or making fun of men having to give in to women to get beer, a certain car, ect.

My picks:

The Betty White/Abe Vigoda Snickers ad. (I didn't realize that Abe (Fish) was still alive).

The nervous chickens in the Dennys ads. (touting the Free Gland Slam breakfasts for this Tuesday).

The Doritos funeral ad.

The Audi Green Police ad.

The Bud Lite house ad.

The Brett Farve 2020 ad. (I forget what it was actually advertising though).

Two of the Budweiser ads.: the human bridge and the clydesdale/steer.

Of course, the E-Trade ones were great...they were excellent, then slipped, and it seems they might be decent again.

In general, I thought the ads this year kind of sucked, but there were a few highlights:

The first two doritos ads--the dog with the bark collar, and the kid with the guy dating his mom--that one was probably the best ad of the first half.

The Betty White snickers ad.

The green police-audi ad was probably the most creative and well-scripted ad, and I could easily see it and the Betty White snickers ad in the pantheon of super bowl advertising "classics."

Honorable mentions:
Budweiser's usually touching spot with the steer and the clydesdale--yes, it's formulaic, but it works
The e*trade commercial with the "milkaholic" line--not as good as last year's "flex the golden pipes" ad, but still funny.
The Hyundai Brett Favre ad--too cliche to be among the best
The Bud light book club meeting, which only gets an honorable mention for the "what do you think about little women" line
McDonalds LeBron-Dwight Howard ad--saved by the last second inclusion of Larry Bird.

Apparently you're not the only one, so someone has made it easy to keep track of Abe here.

I wasn't overwhelmed by the commercials this year. I really liked the Google ad, and the little kid in the Doritos ad was cute, but the Doritos ad with the guy in the coffin? That's just wrong. As a Mopar guy, I loved the Dodge Charger ad.

I'm really sick and tired of the E-trade talking babies, that got old after the first 243,293 times I've seen that concept used. The retired Bears and the Super Bowl Shuffle? No, just no...

The Brett Favre ad would have been funny if we haven't been subjected to his "will he/won't he" routine for the past 3+ years.

I can't believe how much money the US Air Force Reserve spent...uh, really? 4-5 $2 million spots during the Super Bowl? Can't we spend that money on ANYTHING better?

The USAF Reserve ran ads? Wow. I missed that.

I'd say they all pretty much stunk this year. The Betty White ad was pretty good. The McDonalds one was a good re-make of the classic MJ-Bird one too.

Trust me, I wasn't even drinking last night. It played 4-5 times, the same exact commercial.

Ah, there ya go, it's only in certain areas...mine being Kansas City. So, at least it was cheaper...but still not cheap, especially running it that many times.

It would be in the 30-45,000 dollar range for one ad in that market. Maybe as low at 100K for a block of 5.

You mean nobody liked the millions that the government pissed away on the census ad time, not to mention how many more $$ it cost to stage and film the mostly-forgotten Ed Begley spots?

Surely this made an impact on how important it is to be counted. Hhhmmphh.... jack
