Super Bowl Commercials: Yawn

Christina Aguilera wasn’t the only disappointment last night during the Super Bowl.  Once again, the over-hyped, over-produced, under-funny TV commercials were a bust.  It might have been the worst collection ever.  Sure, some of them were worth a chuckle.  I really think one of my favorites was the very first commercial of the game.  It was for Bud Light.

I know a lot of people liked the Little Darth Vader commercial. I didn’t. But I did like the ad for the NFL and its use of team apparel. Click here.

I especially like the gang from “The Sopranos” wearing the Jets clothing. And Norm from “Cheers” entering the bar wearing a Wes Welker jersey. And of course, I’m always a sucker for the little baby on the E-Trade commercials, especially this one:

But really, why were so many of the commercials these epic, dark, strange productions? Most weren’t funny and most didn’t make sense. I think they are all trying a little too hard now. Time to go back to the basics. And by basics I mean funny. Like Christina Aguilera.

    • I can’t stand when performers try and change the Star Spangled Banner. The song is not about YOU. Show some respect to the people the song is about and just sing it like it was supposed to be sung. Might be easier to remember the words.
