Are Super Bowl commercials as good as they used to be?

    Are Super Bowl commercials as good as they used to be?

    Should advertisers "dial it back" for a couple of years? Are we out of material?

    It doesn't seem that we're out of material but it does seem that many of those in charge of creating the commercials came up with complicated or contrived ideas that the advertisers did not draw the line on. I figured that it was just me but this year's commercials did not seem to have the same level of creativity and funny jokes as some that I've seen. Also, it's possible that the advertisers just did not hire the best writers, scripts, etc.

      Hey Express10, agreed. that's exactly what I saw. Advertisers trying to "outdo" jokes from previous years. The one in my image specifically inspired me to open this question, though I will admit after doing so i did have one or two that made me laugh

      Have you seen the Hormel "pepperona" commercial? It's hilarious to me, I love the original song. I did not see that commercial airing during the SuperBowl though.
