First, congratulations to the Who Dats...the New Orleans Saints, Super Bowl Champions? Maybe I am living in an alternate reality like those guys on Lost...

Anyway, more importantly, what were the best ads on Super Bowl Night? My personal list...

I wonder how much money we taxpayers spent for the census ads? Completely useless, IMHO.

I always like the Budweiser Clydesdale ads the best.

And that whole Census thing... I keep seeing ads locally (Dallas, TX) about how if you don't complete the census the area may miss out on federal funds. So is getting money from the government the point of the census now? It used to be about counting people and adjusting the house of representatives as needed. Then again, we seem to be trying to catch up to California in becoming just another part of Mexico. /rant

The ads that intended to be humurous were not. I chuckled a bit at the little boy threatening his mom’s date. Unless you enjoy watching back to back commercials of men in underwear, the ads generally sucked. So did the Who.

Being a diesel fan I enjoyed the Audi comercial. Displaying the eco-freaks as the Gestapo was a bonus.

Quite a few freepers were offended by this commercial - personally I thought it was a great parody of how fascist the eco-wacko’s really want to be and will be if allowed to succeed.

Me too but for a different reason. It was a perfect caricature of our future "green" world. Here is the link for anyone who missed it:

My fear is that people looked at the Green Police as a good thing in that ad. It was held in the wrong light - It scared me, quite frankly.

“Buy our car now and be prepared for the green holocaust!”

I think many Americans (including some Freepers) suffer from SPDD (Satire Perception Deficit Disorder).

Rather obvious satire and sarcasm quite often gets taken literally.

“Buy our car now and be prepared for the green holocaust!”

My thoughts too. Green Nazi World was too lightly done. At least the famous “1984” Superbowl ad implied that Big Brother was a bad thing.

It would have been better if the guy happily slid through the roadblocks in his Audi, then got home and started taking AK47s out of his trunk to arm the resistance.

Because of the overall message, which was basically "get used to this kind of crap and buy an Audi so you won't be targeted." Capitulation. Surrender. If you can't fight 'em, join 'em.

I was initially angry when I saw this. Looking to the net, I found that lefties on various forums loved it. They think it makes fun of people on the right and where they believe all this green crap is heading, all the while ending with a wonderful green message. It was pretty much a characterization of a leftist's wet dream.

Go back thru posts after the game - general comments like “It made me angry”, “I'll never buy an Audi”, etc. - the point being everyone has different perceptions of parody.

Probably why it is effective. You take away from it what you want. I dont see how anyone can see it as anything but negative, but hey I dont pretend to understand lefties.

I'm with you. The not-so-subtle message was "This is coming, get ahead of the curve to stay out of trouble."

It was done lightheartedly, but the message was clear. You will get in line.

I can understand that, I was offended. But I was more in the category of, put your hand on me and you will take back a stump. The ad drove me angry because there are people who want to do just that, be that green policeman, run a fascist country.

Correct! Just pimping hits for his website. He didn't get one from me.

All I saw was too much Who but very few ads.

It helps to be familiar with the source. I have been on both sides - my post misunderstood and my misunderstanding others. There are so many dummies amongst us, including me at times, it is hard to know if one is reading good satire or just a stupid post.

Neo ... given that your still a noob, apparently you haven't learned how to pay attention to details yet. So, just to refresh your memory .... from the Freerepublic Home Page - down in the Disclaimer Section:

Please do not post advertising, solicitations, spam or any other commercial messages. Do not spam us with links to your own site. No one likes spam.

So, even though you're proud of your blog pimping, stop it.

Spam is something you are forced to get in your email, where you are forced to delete it. Spam is something you have no control over seeing.

This is on a public forum. Again, you clearly don’t understand the concept of free will or free choice is, which is what free republic is all about.

It is your choice to click on the link, or not. You do not read everything posted on this site, to be sure. So if you don’t want to read it, fine by me.

And again, I don’t make any money off of this. It all goes to my charity.

So again, I am doing nothing wrong, and frankly don’t care what you think. It isn’t because I don’t respect you...I don’t know you. It is just that I know that I am simply using my right of freedom of speech. And ultimately, that is what this site is about.
