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