List off your top three commercials from tonight.

1. NFL Network - "Tommorow"
- Nothing like Warren Sapp and Zack Thomas singing showtunes.

2. Budweiser - "Yelling Like a Ref"
- Very few commercials made me laugh out loud tonight. This one did, the poor sap.

3. Mastercard - "The Simpsons"
- Just because.

My favorite, even though I don't like Nascar, was the Dale Jr. Lipstick one.

#2 was probably the bear buying the Pepsi with a check..

And "Tomorrow" is #3 on my list.

I liked the Chevy commercial with the soap, that's #3.

Simpsons Mastercard was hilarious, #2.

NFL Network comes in #1, resoundingly.

Normally I'm annoyed with the fact that we don't get the US commercials during the Super Bowl up here...but since in their place this year we got a new Labatt Blue Light commercial based around two hot ladies making out on the dance floor, I'll save my complaints for another year.

To echo BigVitoMark's thoughts, I'm glad that Global didn't shove 1000 ads for that godawful Train 48 show down our throats. And the Labatt chicks making out was pretty schweet.

1) The bear getting id'd writing a check for beer at the general store -- excellent!

2) I love the Clydsdales. The convincing speech by the donkey to get into the Clydesdale lineup -- awwwww! :-)

3) 1953, Seattle -- Jimi Hendrix, guitar, pawnshop -- very nice. (That was shown suprisingly late in the game -- odd.)

Honourable Mention: Viper the Border Collie cleverly fetches a Bud Light from the cooler for his owner. Angus the scroungy mutt takes a shortcut to acquire a Bud Light for his owner.

Honourable mention 2: "My family wanted an SUV but my husband was brought up by wolves."

I detest "Tomorrow" from "Annie", so that one didn't exactly rock my world.

"Troy" (opening on May 14) just nudged out "Van Helsing" (opening May 7) for the "How Far In Advance Can We Promo a Movie" award.

And don't forget the *2* mystery prescription drug commercials. At least one of them explained itself later on in the show. (Although, do you really need an erection to sit in separate bathtubs overlooking the ocean????)

i think the commercial said it lasts for 36 hours, which is far and wide beyond ridiculous.

favorite 3 (in no particular order):
1. attaching aol 9.0 to the car and going back in time
2. the "holy $#!t = soap" car commercial
3. how a referee trains to deal with yelling

sadly i don't really remember which brand these were all specifically for. in addition, the general consensus of our living room was that the budweiser(?) commercial with the donkey was definitely the most "awwww that's so cute" commercial of the night. :-)

What's up with Ali? Is he hard up for cash? I believe he appeared in three different ads for three different companies.

1. "Tomorrow"- NFL Network
2. "D'Oh"- Mastercard
3. "Donkey" - Budweiser
3a.- "Dale Jr."- Budweiser(the one where he drove to LA to give her the lipstick...that wasn't hers)

Incidentally, I think this was a pretty weak lot overall...

Honorable Mention - AIG - last ad of the game and a corporate suck up by me

Low Brow Award -

Budweiser - The Horse blows a "Blue Lily" - I couldn't help but laugh.....

As for Van Helsing, it looks like it will be somewhat fun, but the effects look barely above made-for-TV movie quality. Troy could be fun. The desert horse race movie (can't spell the name, so I'm not even going to try) still looks like alot of fun and I've been seeing previews of that for a couple months now.

I think that was the Subway ad where they explained that when they said it was okay to be bad because you ate Subway, the badness only referred to breaking your diet, and not other general malevolent behaviour.

DAMN YOU SUBWAY!! Holding down Wang Chung like that...I oughta smack that JaHHHred. :-)

On the other hand, I oughta smack myself as well for missing the Simpsons' MasterCard ad. To quote the great philosopher Homer..."D'oh!"

As a bit of an advertising smark, I'd say this was one of the weakest run of commercials in quite a while. There were no commercials that stood out and made you say, "Man, I'll be talking about THAT tomorrow", and there were only a few that were barely memorable. That said, here's my Top 3:

1. "Simpsons"- Mastercard. Even though it was buried until late in the game, it was a brilliant take on the classic campaign.

2. "Tomorrow"-NFL Network. I wish they'd snuck a couple more of their ads in, because all of the NFL Network commercials have been gold. They're kind of like the "This is SportsCenter" campaign-funny, but not so over the top to be completely absurd.

3. "iTunes"-Pepsi. Because I've already won two free songs.

Honorable Mention: The Budweiser spots. They have very little to do with beer, but they're funny, so they get a pass.

Creepiest Ad: The Charmin "Snap" commercial. I can't even bring myself to type out why this commercial was so terrible, so I'll swipe a review from Adage.com: "Thunderously insipid football gag about somebody substituting -- are you ready for some hilarity? -- Charmin toilet paper for the towel the center has dangling from the back of his pants! Ha! And guess who, over on the sidelines, pulled the prank? The Charmin bear!! Har! What a zany unexpected gridiron twist! If you are a moron!"

Biggest disappointment: No Apple commercial? In my office, I have a poster celebrating the Macintosh's 20th anniversary. It's a picture of the woman from the legendary Super Bowl ad. She's still carrying her sledgehammer, determined to take out Big Blue, but now she's got a small accessory hanging off of her hip. It's an iPod. Considering Apple and BBDO essentially created the Super Bowl as commercial event 20 years ago, and considering it's the Mac's twentieth anniversary, I was surprised that Apple had no representation this year.

Van Helsing looks interesting, although the special effects look kinda silly. Troy looks cool, although I'm actually looking forward to Hidalgo (the horse movie) the most out of the three.

1) Simpsons MasterCard
2) Honda Pilot owner raised by wolves
3) FedEx Alien Office Worker

Pretty weak year for commercials, I thought. Honorable Mention to Jimi Hendrix/Pepsi, Budweiser/Donkey, Budweiser Ref, 7 Up Slam Dunk and H&R Block/Nelson.

The Honda Pilot commercial wasn't new, and therefore should be disqualified.

Big Ups (tm Stuart Scott) to Mastercard, Staples, and Pepsi

Not so hot perfomrances by Budweiser, Cialis, and John Kasay....err...

Anti-tobacco ads finished an impressive 1 for 2, with Shards O'Glass being the funniest thing Truth has ever done, and the other ad, not so much so.
