As usual, Budweiser ruled the screen by sheer number of commercials. At 2.1 million per 30 second spot, it was no light investment. But I was not impressed. The streaking sheep and magic fridge only drew a grin. Fill that fridge with truffles, then we'll have something to talk about.
Burger King anteed up with a srange Vegas-type production of flying female tomatoes and lettuce. It culminated in a stack of human vegies, meat, and bun. Alrighty then.
Ads for Lost, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy filled many of the breaks. Cadillac, Sprint, Ameriquest, and Hummer also competed for their share of the Superbowl crowd. Slim-fast weighed in (pun intended) late in the game. More nachos and cheese, anyone?
Diet Pepsi's Jay-Z and Jackie Chan commercials had as much fizz as a can of year-old soda.
Disney's commercial featuring Superbowl players practicing the "I'm going to Disneyworld" line had the cute factor at least.
The overall winner in my opinion was the Fed Ex commercial that featured a prehistoric man and his unsuccessful shipment. From the surprising snap of the Tyrannosaurus's jaw to the kicking of the Dogosaurus, this one had the twists that made me laugh out loud. Unfortunately, it was one of the first commercials of the night so it was all downhill from there.
50 million women watched the Superbowl, but only 3 out of 4 watched it for the football; the rest tune in for the commercials. So tell me--if you watched--did you tune in for the game or the commercials, and above all: which commercial was your favorite?
