Let’s face it. Even though the actual football being played last night was really compelling, the real reason to watch the Super Bowl is for the commercials. The early to mid 2000s saw a slump in the quality of the commercials (mostly website, beer, and movie commercials), but the last few years have seen a jump in really good commercials.
Here are my Top 5 from last night:
#5 – Snickers Game
REMOVED ON YOUTUBE
Anytime you see Betty White and Abe Vigoda getting tackled in the same commercial is comedy genius!
#4 – Vizio Forge
This commercial made me immediately regret buying a tv less than six months ago. Lots of really cool ideas/features packed into a sleek looking TV.
# 3 – E*Trade Baby Girlfriend
#2 – Doritios Gym
I laughed so hard when the dude used the Dorito as a ninja star. Funny, funny stuff! Doritos made a big splash with their commercials.
#1 – Google Parisian Love
Google did an outstanding job with this spot. It was simple, yet told a story that drew you in. It showcased their products. It was true to who they are as a company. Oh, and this was their VERY FIRST TV AD EVER!!! Great job Google!
