Super Bowl Commercials 2011: Best and Worst

    I was not all that impressed with this year's Super Bowl Commercial line-up.
    The Pug dog Doritos was OK, but my favorite was the Couple with the Pepsi. Especially when at the park bench.

    BEST: Couple together having a Pepsi and another woman walks by and the man looks. Girlfriend throws Pepsi at him, but...hit the blonde. lol They run away.

    WORST: Dorito- finger sucking and pants ripped off and sniffed! YUK!I thought that one was sickening.

      Have to agree with the worst, it was a little creepy,

      The funnest was Pepsi, and the one outlined above was a funny #2, but I think the best was the mechanical cooler that nailed the guy in the crotch.

      Up for third was Rossanne getting hammered by the swinging log

    I agree. Where were the Budweiser frogs?
    Even the Career Builder monkeys seemed tepid this year.

    I give the top honors to Chevy and VW commercials.
    I'll see if I can get links to them.

      That one was OK. I liked the bud light commercial that was based on that house building show. Where all he does is put some buds on the counter , it was pretty funny and that Chevy commercial was pretty funny too. Otherwise most of em were lame. Go Daddy needs to retire.

    Yes, the Bud Light commercial was pretty good.
    The Stella Artois where the guy is singing and all the women in the audience start crying was cute, too.

    Oh -- and let's not forget the new e-trade baby commercials.
    Did you see the pregame one where they had babies in suits that looked just like the commentators? Very, very cute!

      Now that one I liked. But they needed a "Jimmy Johnson" baby.

      I am heading out for the night. Has been a long day and need to do some research before bedtime for Super Bowl hub.

      Wonder if anyone will do a SB Commercial hub?

    Michael, I will have a review of the Super Bowl ads coming this week.  Overall, I was disappointed with the lack of quality ads.  To me, the only winner tonight was Pepsi with the Pepsi Max commercials.  They were good.

    I loved the Doritos one where the dog was being teased by the guy through the window, and then he knocked the guy over for the dorito.  that was funny as hell.  I just wished the dog would've been a weener dog instead, as it would remind me a lot of my dead dog itchy.  that would've been epic.  however, a pug dog was still just as cute and funny.  lol

    Then my other favorite was the one where the car was captured by aliens, then sucked into a dimensional portal back during the mayan era.  that was a great commercial.

    the one that disappointed me the most was captain america.  after all that waiting for a trailer, it didn't really show enough to get me interested in the film, and I wanted to see more of Red Skull.  Not a lame four or three seconds of his face to where if you blink, then you'll miss it.  No, I was hoping for a better shot of the Red Skull's face, and something more from the trailer.  Don't get me wrong, I still plan to see it.  I was just hoping for more from it. 

    Overall, I thought the commercials were all great in their own way though. smile

    I like the boy as Darth Vader trying to figure out why the force wasn't working.

    MM,

    Thanks for listing these from YouTube, saves me having to hunt down and find them on there, since I didn't get to see the game this year on the tv.
