Every year I look forward to the Super Bowl as much for the ads as for the football. The Super Bowl is when big spending advertisers debut their most creative new campaigns.
Which ads did you enjoy most this year?
My favorites were:
1. Doritos -- guy with the "crystal ball" that predicts "free Doritos at work today."
2. Coke -- fantasy/animation with the guy sleeping and ladybugs, grasshoppers and other bugs abscond with the bottle and it floats down the river. Very pretty.
3. Coke Zero -- update of the old Rosie Greer ad where the little boy offers the limping football player his coke zero.
4. MacGruber -- taken from Saturday Night Live skit. Featuring Richard Dean Anderson -- the real MacGyver. This is one of many new Pepsi ads that I like a lot.
I didn't see many of them, but did like the Coke one-- especially the ending where the butterflies scatter when he reaches for the bottle.
I only caught a few--did see the new Budweiser ads featuring horses that immigrated from Ireland to the U.S. and one having a romantic affair with a fluffy white filly. Quite clever off takes from previous campaigns!
Oh right. The Budweiser Clydesdales ads have been great. I loved the one with him "dating" the white dancing horse. There were two GE ecoimagination ads that were good, too.
I want to check them all out on zulu.com
The Budweiser Clydesdales ads - Everyone at our apartment loved these too.
There is a field of Clydesdales on our drive to my brother's house. I always love looking at them, and there is usually a car or two stopped there to snap photos, show the kids the horsies. I wonder if those horses want to grow up to be in Budweiser commercials:-)!
I didn't watch them all either, but I saw the free Doritos one and it was really funny. I thought the one where the guy suggests cutting back on Bud Light and work and is promptly thrown out the window was pretty amusing as well.
Thanks and welcome to HP. Keep posting. Keep writing new hubs!
The only ads i wanted to see on the superbowl was the 3d ones. After that i turned it off.

If you haven't heard, in short, a Baptist-led onslaught on the Super Bowl is being organized to push the "I am second" Christian marketing campaign. They are trying to stuff 1 million little cards with this "I am second" website into everyone's pockets in hopes that they can...

Msn has listed their favorite Super Bowl commercials, I only agree with a few of them. Mainly the Budweiser frogs. There are some other good ones, but which Super Bowl commercial you have seen really sticks out?

Wow, was that great. That catch by Tyree against his helmet is definitely worth watching again. It's amazing that Eli even got it off with two guys on him. Does anyone who's not a Giant agree or disagree that it was the Best Super Bowl ever.The biggest upset over the greatest team...

Would you invite non-football fans to you Super Bowl Party?It seems that everybody's interested in football on Super Bowl Sunday. What do you think, should it be just die-hard fans?
