Super Bowl Ads Disappointing


So, I watched about half of the Super Bowl and may have missed some of the ads, but I don’t think I really missed much. Hey, big advertising gurus, where’s your knock-my-socks-off creativity? My favorite ad was Carlos Mencia’s English as a Second Language Class in Beer. Carlos’s advice: if you are asked for a Bud Light, you say, “Me no speak English.”

Then, I’d give a wet noodle or maybe a wet t-shirt would be better to GoDaddy for their dumb ad. It seems to be the favorite “bad” ad; and therefore, I believe it to be successful. We are talking about it and I remember it.

The Snickers candy bar ad with the two grungy mechanics coming together for a “kiss” gets my vote for the grossest ad.

And lastly, does anyone watching the Super Bowl and eating party food really care to be reminded of heart disease? What a killjoy that ad was!

Sheila, the Mobile Press-Register online edition has an article about the Super Bowl commercials today @ http://www.al.com/news/mobileregister/index.ssf?/base/news/1170670691259330.xml&coll=3 that you may want to look at.

Thanks for stopping by Don. I'll check it out.

Sheila, I wouldn't miss stopping by every day as long as I'm able to. It's just that some days I don't have anything worth posting (BUT, I have been known to post worthless stuff anyway).

Hey Sheila. I know I haven't been by for a while, but I've been trying to get back into blogging regularly myself. I have just needed a long break, you know?

Anyway, I've missed your blog. It is so witty and fun to read. You rock! Come on over and see my slideshows on my blog.

I didn't watch the Super Bowl this year. I listened to it on the radio with Daddy, so I missed all the commercials. They've always been the best part of the game, so I'm sorry to hear they weren't that good this year.

So I didn't miss anything, Huh??

Don, I'm happy to hear from you no matter what the content.

Dana, I directly attribute your blog to helping me start to get readers. You were kind enough to mention me. Glad to see you are blogging more lately. I always enjoy your writing and find the YouTube pieces fun.

And DB, I can assure you, you didn't miss much. It was a crazy game for the first half with the turnovers and the run back. I would have liked it if the Bears had won, but I thought the Colts deserved it.

I was about to turn in my whole comment here, but I decided to turn it into a post instead . . . I was outspired. ;)
