Mine is this one, no contest:
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Mine is this one, no contest:
One with the NFL imposing team logos on TV characters
I'm a sucker for the funny ones, so it's between the Vader one and the doritos raising the guy from the dead one.
But yeah, Em and Chrysler killed it. Woo Detroit!
I thought this was ok. I was expecting much more from a Bud Light commercial, they have had really funny ones in the past.
is hands down the best one in my book.
He had two...the one for Brisk or the car commercial?
The Chrysler one, I didn't see the brisk one.
3 words...Imported from Detroit
hands down, this was the best comercial this year, prolly my favorite SB ad ever
I agree with the OP. Detroit kicks ass.
agree....Em killed it. Not just that but the lead up to Em with the pictures and what the guy was saying....gave me chills. "The ones by folks who have never been here....don't know what we're capable of...." Love it. Reppin the D well
Chrysler was the best by far IMO.
And I'm part of a GM family...
Also, the VW Darth Vader commercial was hilarious. Laughed the hardest at that one for sure.
Imported From Detroit and Vader, the others weren't even close.
Vader and Roseanne gettting Crushed...
Besides the Em/Chrysler one. I think i'm going to have to go with this Pepsi Max one.
I was laughing so hard during that one, and commercials rarely make me actually laugh.
Anyone else think this year's batch were kind of weak? I didn't find any of them to be particularly funny or touching.
I find myself saying this almost every year. Seems like they get progressively less interesting.
I liked Chrysler's Em one, Motorola Xoom, and the Doritos bringing grandpa back from the dead. Can't remember many others right now.
Chevy must have spent a fucking fortune tonight though, they were everywhere.
The hype usually overrides the actual product. But I thought this year was a modest step up. There were at least 2 I thought were great, and a number of other pretty good one's, with the usual array of clunkers.
It's not that superbowl commercials are getting worse per se, it's that advertising in general is getting a lot better. Companies used to spend SO much on just their superbowl ad, and not much on anything else, now EVERY commercial on TV is better than every commercial 10 years ago, so the superbowl ads don't seem as sweet since the bar has been raised all around.
I agree, most were "meh." I liked the VW, Chrysler, and Audi ones best myself.
"Hit them with the Kenny G!"
It was written by someone in advertising.
One of my issues is that the ads are mostly dominated by 3 companies, it's just the same 3 companies (Doritos, Bud Light, Pepsi Max), and I think EDSBS pointed it out on twitter during the game.
The Bud light ones aren't that funny, I didn't see the Doritos one that riled up so much controversy, and the Pepsi Max ones were alright. But overall, the commercials were slightly amusing, nothing real special or outstanding.
that chrysler eminem one was the best.. this one below was second best:
This one creeped me out. I got a good laugh out of it though.
I would say that Doritos had the funniest commercials, but the best would be the Eminem Chrysler one.
lol the doritos commercials were awful
"bless you Peppers" my favorite line of any super bowl ad ever (and eminem one was sick too)
and this one
Speak from the heart led to "you have a nice rack", or something along those lines!
Ya! I got a good laugh out of that one. Embedded above.
That one and the Em/Chrysler one were the best.
After that, the Bud Light truck, VW/Vader, and the Snickers one that clobbered Roseanne with a log.
Vader was awesome but 'Imported From Detroit' is the absolute best tagline I've seen. Totally inpiring commercial. Anyone who lives in Detroit or works in the auto industry has got to be pumped up after seeing that ad. Hell I'm in neither of those categories and I was pumped. I know everyone likes to say that whatever they just saw was the best but that truly might be the best commercial I've seen.
The em commercial was my favorite.
"We don't care what you think of us" is precisely the opposite of the attitude espoused by the commercial. "You should think better of us, because we made this frickin' sweet car" is what they're trying to tell you.
And they did it in a way that isn't likely to turn off anyone who wasn't already sworn to buy Toyotas for life, and would definitely appeal to 99.9% of people in one particular city.
Yeah, obviously. That's what I said. So what, exactly, about the commercial had a "We don't care what you think of us" attitude?
...and you'll see all the "wonderful" things the national media has to say about Detroit and the state of Michigan.
People outside the area have really forgotten that the city of Detroit and state of Michigan have done FAR more for America than America has done for them. You think the Allies win WW2 without the "Arsenal of Democracy"? Fat chance.
Nothing wrong with a little reminder now and then.
If you disagree, I'm gonna find you and punch a hole in your wall.
I don't care if it took a commercial to express it -- this entire state needs some god damn pride. Have some pride in your home. This is Michigan, for God's sake.
Of course the Chrysler commercial, but the "Prison for Rich people" in the Audi commercial, was f-ing hilarious.
But for LAUGHS, I was really struck by the ending of the Pepsi Max commercial, where the wife threw the can at the husband and instead it struck the other woman in the head.
Also loved the takeoff on the classic coke commercial with House throwing his cane at a kid.
Loved the Chrysler commercial, loved the Doritos ones, and loved the VW/Vader one. But I think my fave was the Best Buy commercial.
Sharon: What's a 6G?
Ozzy: What's a Bieber?
Audio Dude (Bieber in disguise): I don't know, but it kinda looks like a girl.
If it ended with Ozzy biting Beiber's head off.
This one was my 2nd fav because it made me laugh for longer than a second.
expect him to throw his cane at the kid. I haven't laughed so long in a good while.
How could you not expect that? It's the classic Mean Joe commercial and all he was holding was the cane. Nothing else to throw at him.
Hahaha, I loved it!
But best serious one, was by far, the Chrysler commercial.
