Let's see if they are as good this year as in the past.

So far I am not too impressed with the Full Throttle ones.

That Disney commercial was kind of cute

02-05-2006, 07:23 PM
What time do the commercials start?

02-05-2006, 07:51 PM
The Fed Ex commercial with the cavemen :bowrofl:

02-05-2006, 08:18 PM
I liked the Bud light commercial with the grizzly bear and the commercial killing the insect in the hospital room-"we killed him".

Streaker :lol:

I liked the caveman Fed Ex and the Bud Magic Fridge one.

02-05-2006, 09:23 PM
They might as well have played commercials all the way through halftime as well. I'm only 27, but man, that was not a good show just put on my the Stones.

I know plive acts don't sound the same as the CDs, but man that was bad.

02-05-2006, 09:29 PM
I agree Buckeye, that was less than inspiring.

The Fed Ex commercial with the cavemen :bowrofl:

YEAH! Best commercial ever!

Not my problem :laugh:

The Benny Hill/ Sprint commercial almost made me pee myself.

02-05-2006, 11:09 PM
Benny Hill wins. Overall, pretty disappointing batch this year.

My favorite was the "monkeys" and "jackasses" one by Careerbuilder.

The Budweiser Clydesdale pony gets my vote this year.

"Brown and bubbly?"

Someone should be fired for that one.

02-06-2006, 12:08 AM
I agree Johnny. The whole Diet Pepsi thing from the "Machine" to Jay Mohr has been, well, stupid.

I can think of other brown and bubbly things that aren't very pleasant.

Diet Pepsi ones - STUPID

Not really impressed with any of them, though I liked the "Dreams" one.

The Bud Lite/Grizzly bear one was OK ("I still got the moves!").

And the monkey's celebrating sales was pretty good. That one image of the monkey with the cigar in his mouth with a burning bill in his hand was pretty good.

But the commercials, like the game, was ho-hum.

Agreed. Disappointing crop of commercials this year. I did like the Emerald Nuts spot where they spelled out every letter, instead of just the E and N. Also, the Dr. Spock Aleve commercial was a nice idea.

Among the worst were again the Diet Pepsi ads. The sight of Jay Mohr just makes me cringe. Just as cringeworthy was the movie ad for Tim Allen's "The Shaggy Dog" with Chris Berman doing his same old tired voiceover schtick.

I liked the Budweiser pony and the Budweiser wave. Thought the wave was creative if nothing more.

Here is a link where you can vote for your favorite or just watch them again if you want:)

Pretty disappointing batch this year. I did get a good chuckle out of the phone with the theft deterrent system though.

02-06-2006, 12:15 PM
The Sierra Mist (airport security) one was also very good, as was the Burger King (dancing food) spot.

I thought this year's batch was the best in at least three years. Six, if you happened to think 2003 was flat.

The funny ones were generally funny, the sappy ones tugged on the appropriate heart strings, there were a few clunkers to help us appreciate the gems, and production values were excellent.

My favorite was the streaking sheep

Yeah, those were my two favorites.

Kathy Griffin is hilarious.

The only ones that I really laughed at were the Sierra Mist one and the two Sprint commercials ("Theft Deterrant" and "Benny Hill Music").

But, even the Sierra Mist commercial just seemed like something I'd expect to watch during an episode of Boston Legal -- nothing spectacular or worthy of a Super Bowl ad buy in the 1st half.

While I liked the Burger King commercial, I was really hoping for a better usage of The King mascot (currently my favorite series of commercials going). I have to chalk that one up as a partial "dud."

Biggest dud of the night: repeat commercials. Why would anyone spend $2.5 million dollars to run a commercial that's been showing for months already (see: Gillette and it's pointless 5 bladed razor, and Hummer)? Talk about killing an potential buzz...

In case anyone missed any of the commercials, or if you want to watch again:


Did anyone see the promo for the Adam Sandler movie coming out this summer. Looked hilarious, but I forgot the name of it.

Nevermind. Found it. It's called "Click" if anyone is interested.

02-06-2006, 04:36 PM
The more I thought about it, the Monkey thing with the profits (or losses as it were) was pretty funny - SOmething about a Monkey lighting a cigar with a $100 bill that works.

I still like the Benny Hill Sprint one the best but think many may have missed the reference.

I got it, but I was the absolute only person at the house I was at who did get the reference.

The promo for Lost was pretty good too. Might as well face it you're addicted to Lost.

I was at a party with about 250 people and when the Burger King commercial ended a noticable 'uuuwww' went up. Burger sales dropped off immediately. Not to mention that a number of people commented that burger 'King' looked like a pedophile. Easily the most discusting commercial of the year.

I think the Pepsi ads were by far the worst. I mean the "brown and bubbly" thing was just plain stupid, and the one with Jackie Chan, while better, viewing wise, I thought actually made me remember the Diet Coke can being used as the "stunt double" more than I remembered the commercial being by Pepsi. Probably the exact opposite results that Pepsi wanted. I'm sure someone is being fired over that one today.
