do you mean the one of all the showgirls that turned into codiments & toppings for the burger?

it was weird. I liked the hidden refrigerator, the bud ad with little horse pulling & two big ones pushing.. the airline one (cant recall the advertiser) with the lady atop the man.

most this year were rather flat IMHO

I agree that it was the worst. But I think that is their plan. They had the Hootie strutting around last year in a rhinestoned studded cowboy outfit - which was talked about a lot at the time. The tune wa a littel catchy and that commercial was just weird. This one had no catchy tune, and was simply HORRIBLE beyond belief. They were going for strange, but went right into the unbelievably horrible.

As I was watching the Kermit the Frog- Ford Hybrid commercial, it suddenly became clear to me why the just had to lay off 30,000 employees and shut down a dozen plants.

all the pepsi ads were pretty poor.

btw - did ABC have trouble selling the spots? I've never seen so many plugs for the station's own shows.

Well, the Darius Rucker spot was so bad, it was good. This one, if anything, made me LESS likely to go to BK.

Worst: Burger King

Funniest overall: Bud Light - hidden bottles in the office

Best ending: Fedex

Most disturbing: Hummer H3

Burger King ad.

Agreed. I hope BK didn't spend more than $500 producing it.

Best ad by far: FedEx caveman.

Addendum:

Yes, the Pepsi ads were all very disappointing and stupid - Marketing must be doing lines because they think they don't have competition.

Brown and Bubbly??? What are they thinking?

I think they re-sell
internet domain names. So,
porn's business for them . . .

Side Note:

Thank God for Tivo technology - Skipping the halftime stupidity is such a joy.

Rolling Stones for halftime? What do they have to do with football or even America? They aren't even American and spew hate about our President. Rolling Turds is what they are.

I thought the Burger King ad was horrible, then I saw the Hummer ad. Both stunk.

Off topic, but you jarred my memory:

Sometime during the Alito confirmation process, Nagin was asked what he thought of Roe v. Wade. He became livid and screamed, "As long as we get the peoples back in New Orleans, I don't care how they get here."

I thought the FedEx ad was the best - most of the rest were awful (Pepsi), overdone (Burger King's Busby Berkeley on a Bun), pretentious (Cadillac) or boring (Hummer).

I thought the mortgage company that zapped the fly with the defibrillator while the family witnessed was hilarious.  Something to the effect 'don't judge too quickly.' Their other one with the airplane turbulence was also entertaining.  Outback was also disappointing, an opportunity lost.

The Bud commercial with the 'streaker' made the Miller Lite go up and out my nose - reminded me of a Brokeback film trailer...
