SuperBowl commercials discussion

Submitted by michgoblue on February 4th, 2013 at 7:19 AM

I haven't seen any discussion on the topic, so I figured I would start a Monday morning thread about the SB commercials. While people generally look forward to them, I found this year's crop, much like last year's, to be largely forgettable. Have the agencies just run out of ideas? Last week, I saw a rundown of the top 15 or 25 SB commercials of all time, and the new ones are just a step down.

What did everyone here think? Any favorites? Least favorites? Discuss.

They were all horrible, esp. the f'ing farmer one.

There's nothing more disengenuous than when a commercial tries to be all sanctimonious and idealistic.  You're trying to sell me something, get off your fucking high horse.

The only one I thought was remotely decent was the Samsung one, but it was so immensely self-referential and meta that I couldn't decide if it was clever or not.

The rest sucked.  Everything in our culture sucks, western civilization is past its prime.
