The OFFICIAL Superbowl Commercial Thread

Posted on 02/04/2007 3:00:33 PM PST by blu

I have neither started nor maintained a thread for football commercials in the past...

...So if I'm, stepping on someone's toes, uh, well.....I haven't seen a thread yet that was devoted to the only part of the Superbowl I deem worthy of looking up from my knitting, (But, yes, DA BEARS).

So go ahead and tell us what you think. I haven't seen any pre-game shows (there's a Little House marathon on the Hallmark channel!) so this will be interesting. Couldn't find any previews on AdAge's page...so I hope they're good.

I may tune in now and again for some ads, but of course, I can always catch them again on YouTube.

one ad had an ugly fat man as somebody's mom, counselling her
son. "If your mom was a man, she'd tell you to eat Combos"

Predictable dorky-white-guy-bashing, followed by talking animals, thus far. Blah.

Loved the Mouse commercial. Very witty and will appeal to everyone. And, hey . . . it's animals.

Coke has been running that video game spot in movie theaters for weeks. Was that guy Max Payne?

So far the commercials suck. However, I did like the coke commerical with CGI in it. Good message to counter the violent video games that it parodies.

My company (Boehringer-Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals) has our very first Super Bowl commercial airing in the fourth quarter. It won't win any awards for cleverness or humor. We were bummed when we saw it last week.

So far they've been pretty bad IMO. The Go Daddy one did make me wanna move to marketing though.

I don't know that Pharma Co's need humor or cleverness. What is the product they are selling?

Difficult to make that too funny or clever. I think I've seen these commercials before. They are a bit lame, but so are all of the pharma commercials.

They're sure making a big deal about the two black head coaches. Coke and Doritos are fighting it out to see who can be the most pandering and pretentious.

Supposedly, King Pharma is going to air a rather humorous spot this evening. We'll see.

Half time show is LAME. Fake band, lip syncn', etc. Why even hold a guitar when you can obviously see that Prince isn't even playing it.

Oh yeah, I bet you guys didn't know that both coaches are black!

Oh, and I LOL at the Blockbuster animal ones. I find animals highly amusing. Picture this: A beautiful chestnut stallion, tall and proud, wearing a pair of those over-sized giant sunglasses, with a ceeeegar clenched in his teeth! (Ronny Thomas, if you're seeing this, does it still make you laugh hysterically?!) Ya, I find animals funny.

I thought the Chevy commercial with the guys with their shirts off was good - just needed a bit more of the cowboy in the tightie whities at the end. Definitely could have lingered a bit longer for the ladies.

I always wondered: If you were "working for the man every night and day," how exactly did that count as "a good job in the city"? Can you spell PERJURY?

Maybe Nifong or Fitzgerald can make a federal case of it.

NAACP bowl so far too much way too much pandering.

Commercials are no good. Coverage is no good. My biggest complaint though is the main camera is fogged! This is the SUPERBOWL! There should be plenty of back up cameras.

They could even clean the rain off once and a while. Sad very sad.
