Big Game (Commercial) Review

Oooh, you didn't really think I was going to give you a review of the actual Super Bowl game, did you? Aw, that's so cute.

Um, seriously, if you've been reading this blog for about 5 minutes you know that phrases like "1st down within the 30" are over my head. I enjoy the game when a team I like is playing, but that wasn't the case this year. T disliked the Packers least, so that's who we cheered for.

In between eating brownies and watching T obsessively check his office score pool, I watched each commercial with baited breath. No classics, but I did see a couple funnies.

I would be tiiiiicked if I was this woman:



Sadly, I've worked with people like this and they couldn't use the excuse of being chimps to make up for their behavior:



Even T had to smile at this one:



And as for the post-game episode of Glee, I tried to negotiate terms that would allow me to watch the show on T's fancy, big HD LCD TV (that's a lotta letters), but it was a no-go. I was banished to my crummy, Neanderthal-ish TV in the family room. Anybody else stay up to watch? I was glad to see a new episode. Wasn't sure how the Warblers would pull off a Destiny's Child number, but "Bills, Bills, Bills" was great.



{Did you watch the Super Bowl? Did you have any favorites commercials or performances?}

Come back tomorrow for my Spinach Artichoke Dip recipe!

  3. I think that the VW Darth Vader one was one of our favorites. There were SO many car commercials! Nothing legendary though. Fell asleep half way through Glee, but the start was great, can't wait to watch the rest on the DVR. ps - I got to watch glee on the big LCD HD TV, it's the way to go!

  4. That Volkswagon commercial was my favorite!!! Loved it! I, for the first time ever, did watch the entire episode of Glee. It was really good! Before now, I had only watched bits and pieces. Hubby even enjoyed it.

  5. Our favorite one was one of the NFL commericials with all the classic tv shows wearing the jerseys from the teams near them! Friends, Cheers, The Simpsons, Glee and ton of other shows:) It was so fun we watched it twice!

  8. I really liked the Darth Vader commercial, too. Adorable. And of course the pug Doritos commercial. Ryan liked the Doritos commercial where the guy brought the grandpa back to life.

  9. I watched both(yes, and I napped for it this morning!). The commercials were so so this year. I do think the Darth Vader one was great! As far as the game...who knows???

    We did watch Glee afterwards and I probably should have gone to bed but thought it was the best episode in a really long time, as I have kind of dropped it from my "list of wanna watch" because of the lack luster shows this season. Maybe they are going to kick it up a notch! Just glad so see this week has some new episodes planned...signed, a new TV junkie.

  10. I liked the VW commercial too. It was cute! The commercials were good this year, but not great.

    What did you think of the halftime show? It was too much for me.

  11. I'm a Chrysler Kid and former Detroiter (who wishes she could move back, right now!), and the Chrysler ad with Eminem made me cry.

    It was worse than a Hallmark commercial. I've watched it on youtube a few times today...

    I liked the VW ad with Darth Vader, too :)

  12. Hey girl! We sometimes have a big Super Bowl party. This year we just had about a dozen friends over to watch the game. The men watched it downstairs on the big screen, and the women watched it upstairs on the regular TV. That worked beautifully! We all concentrated on the part we liked best--which for the women was mainly the commercials. :) I liked the Passat commercial best! But then, I've been amazed by The Force for a long, long time.

  13. We took in the game at a restaurant on a date. It was a game. There were commercials, but I was on a date! lol

  14. My favorites were the Darth Vader one and the Dorito's one where he brings the Grandpa back to life...that one seriously cracked me up!

  15. That Darth Vader one was so cute. For funny, I liked the Doritos grandpa one and the Ozzy Osborne/Justin Bieber one.

  16. Loved Darth Vader, but like alanna rose, the Chrysler/Detroit ad gave me chills. My family is from Detroit waaayyy back, and I spent some of my growing up years living in the area, and all of my years visiting my grandparents (both sets) there. Eminem and Chrysler not really my faves, but the commercial was awesome!

  17. The commercials were so so this year but I reall liked the Black Eyed Peas show! The Darth Vader was the funniest, too bad they cutted alot, a friend of mine sent it to mee via youtube and it was longer!

  18. I watched the half time show and enjoyed it. I started reading a book and the next thing I knew both the game and Glee were over. The only commercial that I remember is the Faith Hill one. I have Glee DVR'd and hope to watch it soon. I love the clip that you shared today. Hubby said that this episode is a good one.

  19. Family want stop talking about the Darth Vador. I loved all your picks but the one that stood out the most to me I thought was going to make me very mad! It was the pug that the guy was trying to get to run into the glass door and then he was the one on the ground!

  20. I didn't watch. I used to watch every year, but have sort of lost interest.

    But I must say I watched the top 5 contenders for the "Crash the Super Bowl" dorito's ad contest...and there were 2 from Utah that were winners! And this one is freakin' hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRMMBXx3kqk
