Super Bowl Commercials

Needless to say, Super Bowl XlV was a little disappointing.  The game was boring, the halftime show was terrible, Christina Aguilera screwed up the National Anthem, and the commercials were pretty lackluster.  On the other hand, I spent the evening with good friends and enjoyed delicious food.  I posted on Friday the recipes I would be making for the game and you must try the Zannie's Black Eyed Pea dip. FANTABULOUS. Oh, and add cilantro, you won't regret it. I promise.

Anyways, I wanted to share the few commercials that made me laugh.  I thought there was way too many movie and tv show commercials but whatev they didn't ask me for my opinion.  Here they go:

The Doritos commercial with the guy house sitting. 

Budweiser's take on "Tiny Dancer"

Audi's escaping the confines of Old Luxury

There might have been a few more that made me chuckle, but those are the ones that stood out & I can actually remember.  I also really liked the commercial that showed clips from sticoms through the decades and they were all football-related. Directv maybe?  It was a good one. 

What were some of your favorite ads?


  1. We liked the VW one with the kid dressed as Darth Vader. And the House throw back to the Mean Joe Green Coca-Cola commercial.

  2. Dangit! I made the black eyed pea dip and didn't even think to add the cilantro! It was really good but next time I will use less onion and cook them before adding to the dip. I bet rotel instead of salsa would be fantastic!

  3. I made the dip too and next time will use some fresh cilantro cuz it just need something. Loved the Eminem commercial -shhh dont tell anyone I like that - cuz it was actually a Chrysler commercial

  4. Cooking the onions & rotel is a great idea!

    The Eninem commercial was pretty good too.

  5. Definitely the Darth Vader was one of our favs- but I liked all the ones you posted too! And I agree about there being way too many movie/t.v. commercials! Oh well!
