I thought both Doritos commercials were great -- the time machine, and the dog/cowboy.

Also loved the Radio Shack ad -- "the '80s called, they want their stores back."

Liked the Budweiser spot featuring the dog and the Clydesdales; ditto for the Chevy spot with the stud bull being delivered to his new harem, to the tune of “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate.

Overall, this was one of the lamest groups of Super Bowl commercials in history. Lots of companies will be looking for new ad agencies tomorrow.

Cheerios!

and all the ones with horses, dogs, the American flag, and war heroes!

(My theory: Budweiser is all of a sudden not about babes and boobs anymore, but patriotism, because they are pitching to the over 50 crowd. Now that pot is becoming legal everywhere, beer sales will go down among the under-50 gang. Bud has a newer, older market.)

Bob Dylan doing the Chrysler add was a shock. I'll bet a lot of pinkos feel sold out that he's schilling for a (perceived as) American capitalist company.

Yup. The puppy and the Clydesdales. After that, the Chevy truck ad with the bull in the trailer.

The Budweiser ad was cute, but none of these ads made me interested in anything they were trying to sell. In fact, none of the ads really seemed like they were interested in me as a consumer.

That Maserati commercial was the suck. Why not just show the damned car? I got curious and went to the Maserati website for the car. It said it wasn’t working, but I COULD watch the Superbowl commercial. WTF?

I have to agree.
Nothing stands out from tonight's spots.
The Bud puppy was cute, tho.

Not a great crop of commercials, but then it was a little noisy where I was. I did like the dog and the Clydesdales (but then I always like the Clydesdales) and the Doritos commercial in the same break, with the Lone Ranger theme.

The shame of it was that many people were no longer watching by that point.

So was it, or was it not, “pajama boy” hugging Bruce Willis?

At first I thought, yes. Then... no. No way. But then... was it? (can’t remember what the commercial was FOR, so regardless, it was bad).

I almost always change the channel when any program goes to commercial. A habit I picked up years ago for obvious reasons.

But the one I did see with the Matrix guy Morphius (Fishburn) was pretty good. Even Agent Smith got a few seconds in there.

being that i am a sucker for the 80s, this was my favorite... overall, i did not enjoy this year's commercials... i usually come away with a handful that i like, but not this year... i did like the puppy love Budweiser commercial and the homecoming Budweiser commercial...

I watched the Audi ad a few days ago. Enjoyed it, but not sure that it’s going to sell cars. Would have worked better for the old El Camino.

I preferred the Lone Ranger Doritos ad to the puppy-Clydesdale only because Bud has become more and more cloying with that series of ads. The soldier homecoming was Bud’s best.

Scarlett Johansson’s turn for the Soda Machine was the most unexpected, knowing what a left-wing nut bag she is. Still, she got major props for standing up to the Oxfam group-think clan and standing FOR Israel. She’s still largely a left-wing nut bag, but it proves that they can learn...

"A blank t.v. Screen is my pick."

I'm with you. I didn't watch the entire game, but what I saw was, in my opinion, garbage. Did you notice that in all the talk about how this childish humor and amoral pandering no one mentioned THIS?

Bob Dylan for Chrysler was absolutely stupid. We should by a car built in Detroit because it’s patriotic.

Compare with the KIA commercial. NOw that was cool

In Short, show the car dummy.

Both Chrysler and Budweiser, now foreign companies, are exploiting Americana. It’s kinda disgusting.

I’m all for the patriotism, but not interested in being mocked.

The Coke ad certainly stuck out. I can’t figure out if I like it or not. At first it was off putting, but then I remember that practically every country I have been to which is a total of 46 have coke everywhere.

“The Coke ad certainly stuck out. I can’t figure out if I like it or not. At first it was off putting, but then I remember that practically every country I have been to which is a total of 46 have coke everywhere.”

The problem with the Coke add was their singing “American the Beautiful” in multiple languages. It’s a tribute to what the left see as acceptable multiculturalism WITHIN our country. It’s a post-Obama add. I found this spot the most offensive.

The Coca-Cola ad was offensive, and there’s a huge backlash growing on it.
