Serious lack of great commercials this year. A few great ones, but a lot of generic crap. Which is amazing considering how expensive those ad slots are? Jesus.

Christ, there's only 48 seconds left? This was a not-so-great superbowl. BESIDES CADETS "PLAYING" HALFTIME

...Well that was underwhelming.

Pretty amazing KIA Optima ad. Well, not amazing, but entertaining. And rather clever. Considering how many other ads have been a letdown this year...


YES

SAMSUNG

NOT ONLY DO YOU MAKE AWESOME PHONES

(THIS ONE HAS A STYLUS)

(ALTHOUGH I MISS MY ALIAS)

YOUR ADS ARE HILARIOUS

AND YOU PICK ON PRETENTIOUS MAC-HEADS

Yup. Pretty awesome ad. Please keep making awesome hardware, and my next phone will be yours.

that that "Ferris Beuller's Day Off" sequel turned out to be just a parody Super Bowl commercial. Because the ad is actually clever and a sequel would have been a FUCKING HOT MESS DISASTER.

What I just posted to fb: "Wow, I wonder how much in licensing fees that MetLife commercial cost. I didn't see any Disney characters though, so probably not as much as all the Roger Rabbit sequels that never happened for that exact reason." I would really love to see another collaboration some day though, that was pretty awesome you have to admit.

Good on budlight for encouraging people to help rescue animals. It's good to see someone at least trying to put all those millions of dollars towards good things and not just pointless-ass commercials.

Says the girl watching it just for the commercials.

(And halftime) (the joys of commercialism)

with LJ, Facebook, and tumblr posting right now.

I think that says a lot about how not-so-great the commercials are this year.


...Local ads have some seriously great production value though, I keep thinking they are national ads. Muuuuuch better than Dayton ads.

However, it has taken me three viewings of this cellphone-seafood-poke-allergy commercial for me to understand what was going on in it. Also, the one girl has an AWESOME dress that I VERY MUCH WANT. Like the other hand, I thought it was a national ad at first and was confused by the fact that 99% of the US probably doesn't have a clue what poke is.

Poke is what has been sitting out on the counter all week making me want to puke 1) because it's spoiling and 2) because it's poke anyway.

I went past the poke counter at Foodland today (it's a huge counter on its own, like the size of a normal meat or seafood counter, but ALL POKES) and wanted to retch. And I like seafood

Okaaay

Pretty badass looking Fiat. A little creeped out by the guy imagining it's a woman, though. I mean what's objectification, amirite?

...I'm pretty sure the only time I ever see Pepsi Max or Coke Zero commercials is every year during the Super Bowl.

(WHAT IS WITH THESE SHITTY INTERMITTENT GAME MOMENTS)

Lol reinvented men/women couches. Yes please, it's just like drum corps.

(Actual game break)

Interesting "Budweiser through the years" ad (more like relevant American events), although I think I missed some of them? Like the bar basement moshpit one? What?

I'm going to start off by saying that at Finals last August the Mayor made sort-of a joke about having drum corps do the halftime, because they had invited him to come watch Finals and see how much work it took, how much athleticism.

I mean, I know he was probably locked into a show already? But you don't take a group of people who are looked down upon and say "you guys are awesome, maybe I would give you a chance" jokingly. It's rather dismissive. I'm not saying it was really realistic for the audience at Finals to expect anything would happen, but can you imagine if it had? Fuck. Woulda been awesome.

(Probably would have to be all age-outs since they would be the people who could afford it time-and-money-wise for rehearsal while having what it takes, I VOLUNTEER)

Aaaahahaha oh man, Hulubratory, Will Arnett is amazing.

...I really do not like LMFAO. I don't find them particularly clever or awesome, and their music gets gratingly annoying the more and more it gets overplayed.

HALFTIME HERE WE GO

WHAT ARE THESE ROMANS

Well, other than the extremely confusing mix of cultural imagery, let it not be said that Madonna doesn't fucking know how to do awesome entrances and costumery. She looks pretty damn good for her age, too!

Got some kinda interesting stunt dancers, too.

LMFAO

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE

I FUCKING HATE YOUR HIPSTER FACES

Lol Madonna shufflin', that is pretty awesome though.

Nicki Minaj! She's really growing on me, I like her.

CEEE LOOOOOOO <3 Also whose drumline is that?!

And that digital floor is pretty fucking awesome, a lot better than last year's which was Tron themed and FAILED FUCKING HORRIBLY.

Also my whole friends list is bitching about "what's the big deal about Madonna", but this halftime show is better than SO MANY OTHER ONES I'VE SEEN. Fucking shit.

"World Peace"... not sure why that got thrown in there. Seems horribly out of place in a huge AMERICA FUCK YEAH SWEATY GUYS BEATING EACHOTHER SENSELESS type celebration.

Okay, ad for The Voice is pretty awesome! Nice use of the Wilhelm scream. LOL BETTY WHITE TWIST, I LOVE IT.

Jesus christ Clint Eastwood, I fucking love you. I know this is a shitty car company ad, but for fuck's sake, the man is articulate as hell. And he knows America. In a good way.



...All in all, not a bad halftime.

UPDATE, JUST GOT SOME GOOD NEWS, THE DRUMLINE WASN'T ACTUALLY PLAYING, JUST FAKING IT, AND THE CADETS RECORDED THE DRUM CANDENCE

FUCK

YEAH

That threw me. They look professional enough to be US-wide. I was like "huh, Hawaii family with accent... that's new"

I wonder who had to do the 3d digital model of the stadium? Because the windows are wrong.

HAFLTIME DISASTER TIME

I can't imagine the bungee cord that was required to get that car to not crash.

HEY

GUESS WHAT LUCASFILM

I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT 3D RELEASES

...I would go watch the OT though.

(shitty game break)

AAAAVEEEEEENGGGEEEERRRSSSS AD awyeeeeah <3

omg the dog with the running shoes, ADORABLE.

LOL THIS CREEPY CONFIDENCE AD, I FUCKING LOVE IT

That is my brand of ridiculous. <3

(Oooh, apparently all the commercials are going to be on YouTube. This is awesome.)

G.I. Joe what am I watching
mercat: (Default)
Awwww the Lorax looks kinda cute. Although the ad gives no reference to the original story, so.... I'm a bit confused.

Beetle ad... >>> cuter and cleverer than all the Chevy ads so far.

OMG STAR WARS CANTINA AD

YOU KNOW THEY HAD TO REMAKE ALL THOSE COSTUMES

AND THEY DON'T LOOK AWFUL

HOLY SHIT

HOLY SHIT

HOLY SHIIIIIIT YES

(Wait I didn't even see what the ad was for...?)

(shitty short game break again)

(shitty short ad break)

(this year sucks)

Wow

Troy Aikman, really? That's an oooold reference.

Also, Go Daddy, go fuck yourself. Your commercials aren't ~clever~ anymore (were they ever?) and we've already found out at least twice this year that you are a total scumbag of an existence.

BATTLESHIP

WHY IS THIS A MOVIE

WHY IS LIAM NEESON INVOLVED

WHAT THE FUCK

I'm ready for some Battleshots though. The entire premise of Battleshots is better than every single idea that went into the Battleship movie. What. Even.

Apparently we are keeping up with this shitty ad scheme.

...Yeah, Budweiser, I'm pretty sure "the end of Prohibition" didn't bring forth bottle openers covered in dust.

I am liking this recent trend of classical music pieces in ads, though. It brings my entertainment level up a significant notch.

Disney, what the fuck is John Carter? That just looks like a whole pile of Avatar-ripoff fail. Which, if I may remind you, is a whole pile of appropriative, racist, ableist fail already.

aaaaaand I am already sick of reality show ads.

The quality of this year's superbowl is appallingly low.
mercat: (Default)
stop it with your shitty srs bzns commercials.

BROWN M&Ms

YES

STILL NOT LIGHT BROWN, BUT THAT'S OKAY (I miss the blue light brown ones)


Ohhhh snap words-with-friends jab!





...Seriously, what is with this "two minutes of commercials, 30 seconds of game, two minutes of commercials, five minutes of game" crap? I hope they cut this shit out.

Ahahaha this apocalypse commercial. Pretty funny, actually. So many references, and the twinkies
mercat: (Default)
Well that wasn't a very interesting ad, Bud Light.

Yes... #solongvampires, indeed.

...Damn, that was a short ad break. "Downtown Indianapolis!" Looking for the hotel where we had a total shitshow and it turned out that the same night some Indianapolis politician was doing some unethical things or something, I don't remember exactly. What even.

...Okay and like a minute later more commercials?

OMG ELTON JOHN I don't know what I'm watching but it's a pretty amazing commercial, let's just say that.


...Is it just me or does it feel to anyone else like Indianapolis does not know how to throw a big party? Then again, I kind of already knew that. (Crappy parades, crappy music... crappy stadium echo? Does that count? Seriously though, Indianapolis.)
mercat: (Default)
Oh yeah baby, the only thing I give a shit about. Comedy critique.

ALSO! I marched on that field (twice*).

Also fuck you NBC for not showing the marching band, at least one of my friends was in pregame.

Also "America the Beautiful" and SSB were less than impressive. FUCK INDOOR STADIUMS.

I have to say, it's weird as shit to be watching the Super Bowl by myself at one in the afternoon. I like evening parties and shouting and rollerskating around in a rented room eating puppy chow.

Also, the reason I'm not doing this on Tumblr or Twitter is because I want it here. My Twitter and tumblr commentaries usually go pretty unconsidered, and I don't want to spam facebook, and I want to condense things down more and so, I want it here.

Also Indianapolis fuck your obsession with parades and shit.


AND FUCK INDOOR STADIUMS, JUST SAYING.

*technically five times and I have set foot on it seven.

Lol, Numa Numa guy and Chocolate Rain! And it's not a Droid commercial, I am disappointed.


Apparently this song that's getting used in every other ad (the one played in the Where The Wild Things Are) is being used so much because they are donating all their royalties from the Superbowl to Haiti. Good on them. =)

GEEZ, Budweiser horses FINALLY. Not a great punchline, though. Good setup, but didn't really deliver.

Hahaha, "Green Police". I wish they were real =/


Wow, that Taco Bell ad was a setup for a Super Bowl commercial? Not so great. =/

LOTS OF DISAPPOINTMENT THIS YEAR. lol. I keep posting lots of "meh" comments/smilies.


Hahaha, nice Doritos samurai ad, though. I think they win for best ads this year, probably.

[EDIT] ...Yeah. Not a great game this year.

Weird but silly Chevy Chase commercial.

I admit it, I am sad I can't get a free grand slam at Denny's. BUT, Waffle House is always there for me. ALWAYS

"Bolero" in a superbowl ad? Weird. Great song though.

Holy shit, it's a Coke ad. Is it sad they're some of the best ones this year?


...Weird e-trade baby commercial. Just... weird.


Awwwww giant sockmonkey getting his arm cross-stitched (tattooed). CUTE.

Also, Google, I would just like to say You Rock. After all the stupid sexist commercials this year, I do appreciate the "girl" search that yielded "impress a woman" results. Idk. It's the small things, I guess.
mercat: (Default)
Ohohohohoho, Motorola ripping on GoDaddy. Nice.

...Interesting VW commercial. Cute w/ Stevie Wonder, but, uh, any reason they used all VWs and not just Beetles? The game is "punchbuggy" after all.


OMG BARNEY STINSON

SOMEONE PLEASE CALL THAT NUMBER

I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT SAYS.

They always have websites for the ones they mention on the show, that number has to be something.



...Okay, I called it. Barney trying to get hookups, OF COURSE!
mercat: (Default)
Lovin' The Who for halftime. =)

So... not that interesting, all in all. Probably would have been ridiculous in person, though.

These commercials, though... Damn. Nothing great, really. Lamest superbowl ever? Quite possibly.



...Good lord. Nothing is happening. =/

Weird man Dodge Charger ad. How did I know this was going to be sexist stright from the start? Ugh. =/ Damn.

Hahahahaaaaa I like how the end the CSI: Miami "SPACE" commercial with whatshisface's glasses. SO UBIQUITOUS.

LOOOOL KISS COMMERCIAL RIGHT AFTER ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Whoever put these commercials in a certain order definitely knows how to effectively weirdly link things together. Also, though I will probably go see Alice in Wonderland... I'm not sure it's my brand of weird. Something just looks and sounds "off" about it, though I can't put my finger on what.

Um... girlfriend removed the dude's spine? Is it just me or are there a larger number of HERP DERP WE IS MANLY MENS. commercials this year? Or am I suddenly legitimately that much more sensitive to it just from reading a bare minimum more of feminist blogs? =/ I was talking about this with my mom the other day, I feel like a lot of my peers/age group are on this backlash against "logic", kinda. Feminism, conservation of the earth, etc. Makes me incredibly depressed because each day Facebook has at least three idiotic things to expose me to.



YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS PINBALL WIZARDDDD

Oh...kaaaaaay... weird Budweiser bridge commercial. I have no idea... weird.

SHELDON HACKS THE SUPERBOWL!!! BEST ADVERTISEMENT YET. And that's saying something. =/

Huh... two weird no-pants commercials in a row. I wonder if they did that intentionally.

LOL Bud Light "Lost" parody. I would be that first girl. And I would be pissed. And then I would just pick up all my survivalist camp stuff, say "fuck all y'all" and leave everyone behind. GOOD TIMES.

Woah, manly Dove ad. Was not expecting that. STEREOTYPICAL DUDE STUFF andthenoutofnowhere Soft Dove Cutscene. Huh. ...Good? I don't know. Rather. Does it bother anyone else when they don't lyricize the correct rhythm, though? I've always been sensitive to that sort of thing. Don't know if it's my linguist side, who likes written rhythms (poems, prose, et cetera) and rhymes to work, or whether it's my musical side just saying it's sixteenth notes, damn it. Either way, they slightly butchered the William Tell. Alas!

I think it would be awesome to be a song parody-er though. I've always thought I'd be pretty good at it. =)

I'm... not so sure about Robin Hood. It will probably be good, but, I don't know. It doesn't catch my fancy in the right way.

Heheh cute Doritos ad with the little kid.

And the Bud Light astronomers... Although I feel like astronomers would have realized they weren't going to die. They'd come up with a cleverer excuse to party than that!

YEEEEAH Simpson's Coke commercial. Haha, poor Mr. Burns.

T-Pain! Not sure what that has to do with Bud Light, but, you know, whatever. I almost thought that one guy was from The Lonely Island, and I got excited for a minute, because that would actually be kinda clever. Apparently I expect too much from the advertising industry.

A fiddling beaver? Okay… it's cute, I'll give them that. Looks like they took the old beaver puppet/model from that weird "your dreams miss you" depression/sleep medication commercial.


Sketchers… never stop having terrible graphic design, you stuck-in-the-nineties you.

You know... this year's commercials aren't that entertaining. =/ I apologize if this really drags on.
