Yea Giants

I'm glad the Giants won the Super Bowl yesterday.

Now that I have that said, lately the only reason I watch the game is to see what the ad agencies can come up with to entertain us.

Generally, unless it has to do with beer, I won't remeber an ad from one minute to the next, except during the super bowl.

Some years are better than others but this year was not one of them. There were relatively few really good ads.

My favorite was a Budweiser ad (they usually have the best) with the dalmation training the clydesdale.

2nd in my book was the doritos commercial with the guy and the mouse trap.

3rd - Shaq as a jockey for vitaman water.

4th - a tie between 3 bud light commercials, the invention of the wheel, fire and flight (options no longer offered for the last two).

5th - Coke - with Stewie, Underdog and Charlie Brown

The worst ad was for Bridgestone; only because of Richard Simmons.

The ad with poor taste, with the heart jumping out of the womans chest.

The most disappointing but could have been great; the ad for Sobe. The lizards were good, they should have left the woman out.

Over all I would rate this years effort no better than a 5 out of a possible 10 and maybe even a 4.

I would agree with you on all the commercals. I somehow missed the Richard Simmons one, though. So when I went to look at it, Gilda said, "Let's look at that one - the one with the guy wearing a dress!"! Now, he's not wearing a dress, but it's funny how she picked up on his effeminate side by just a picture of his head!
Oh yeah and YAY Giants!

I have to agree with your analysis of the whole things. And though I hate Eli Manning with a passion, I was still kind of glad the Giant's one. Because I don't like Tom Brady, either.

Gilda is a very astute little girl.

Good call on the commercials. I loved that Dorito's one... how about the Baby ETrade online? Those were HYSTERICAL!
