Not trying to be grumpy, but I happen to agree.  This year's sucked compared to last year's commercials.  Also, am I the only one underwhelmed by the whole Beyonce halftime show?  It was more hype than anything.  And to think she kinda phoned in singing at the inauguration for this?!?!

Another favorite: Willem DaFoe as The Devil for Mercedes. That
was perfectly executed and he is always interesting on screen. The message was
simple and direct: Affordable luxury you don't have to sell your soul to afford.

Contrast that to the Audi prom spot, where the "bad boy" is going to have a very bad Monday.


After all the sturm und drag, the VW Jamaica ad and a Sodastream ad aired. Jamaica made me smile, sodastream didn't really explain itself well.

It wasn't over the top.  It was a perfect testament to the hard working and under appreciated farmer.  The trials, the tribulations, the sacrifice, the heartache that goes with a profession that they truly love.  As a son of a farmer it really hit a soft spot and it made me even more sad that I didn't stay on the farm and why I am trying to get back into it (went to college, got a BS, needed to get away).

Also, not connecting to the product?  Its Dodge, its a truck, you know, that they would use on a farm.  Also, Dodge is sponsoring the FFA (Future Farmers of America, you see the logo at the bottom at the end, albeit a little small).

God forbid a commercial has a message other then "here is my product, buy it" or try to keep your attention for more then 15 seconds.

It was more of a thank you then an advertisement.  I nice breath of fresh air and an appreciation of a slice of Americana that is slowly dying.  In an evening of "here is my commerical, isn't if funny/sexy/gross, buy my product!" it was nice to see something thoughtful.

Clydesdales rarely mention the product, the latest VW ads rarely mention the product so why is the Dodge farmers ad so different then either one of these.

Sorry but a company joking about needing to sign a contract with the devil for their product is bad taste, now I thought the commercial was very well done, but to me it failed for both the devil contract and in my view lowered the special appeal of owning a mercedes. heck if any lame 20 something can own one why is your product special.

Actually, I thought that was clever. It took the two attributes of its product and personified them into every dude's fantasy. I'm a woman and I was laughing hysterically. But then again, I'm not normal.

When someone thinks Clydesdales, they think budweiser.  It's one of the longest ad campaigns.

Waldo Pepper: the latest VW ads rarely mention the product

I honestly don't know which ones you're talking about.  Which if you think about it, it means they did a crappy job of advertising.

so why is the Dodge farmers ad so different then either one of these.

It's only similar to the VW one(s?) in that it was hardly tied to the product.  If it resonated with you then it was indeed successful.  For the rest of America, it kind of sucked.  Reminds me of those levi's commercials in black and white that just show americana.  Yes, they're apart of it but what does that mean now?  Nothing really.

I'm not trying to say that your opinion was wrong, I was just explaining why most people didn't like it.

I'm somewhat of a christian (a lax christian, I go to church but I don't care if you believe or not, and I hate religious zealots) and I thought the Deal with the Devil one was a good and funny commercial (because I am fascinated with demonic lore and stories of the cunning/trickery of the Devil) although I felt it was just a little bit off in terms of greatness.

My problem with the Dodge Farmer ad was this:  It's a great tribute to farmers, but let's all step back and be honest.  THEY AREN'T SELLING IT TO FARMERS.  They're selling it to Joe-Bob who works at the garage and Mike at Home Depot.  And Jim who actually sells insurance, but doesn't want to look like a namby-pamby city boy.  The actual agricultural demographic is so small in today's America that this is nothing but a pandering to the non-existent "Yeoman Farmer" ideal that people are trying to sell themselves.  If you actually farm?  Good for you, you do a ridiculously difficult and vital job.  If you just happen to live in a flyover state and drive your pickup to Best Buy for the afternoon shift, shut the hell up, you have no business crowing about how that ad speaks to you.

Really?  The consensus around the net (at least what I am seeing) is that it was pretty well received and one of the best spots of the night..

In a era of everybody loathing their job because they are under appreciated, overworked and underpaid, it is nice to see a tribute to people who have always been under appreciated, overworked, and underpaid, yet do not biatch about it because they love what they do and would not do anything else.  They work not because they have to, but because they want to, because it gives them a purpose.  While it isn't the most glamorous life, it is rewarding.

BeatrixK: RAM:  Didn't hate it, but felt like it was totes going for the 'Pro-'merca, fark yeah!' demographic.


It wasn't.  It was a "here a tribute to farmers".

I get that people won't "get it", but it was still a great commercial (beautiful and poignant)  Yeah, it might have been a little heavy and somber, but damn it if it didn't get the message across.

OMG SRSLY, and Volkswagen might as well name their new car the "Schutzstaffel" because they're a bunch of racists letting two white and one Asian guy have Jamaican accents.

/hope you were being sarcastic too

There's a huge difference between the VW commercial, which Jamaica's tourism people loved, and a commercial that depicts and glorifies what is, by all legal definitions, sexual assault.

I didn't see it during the game (didn't wake up till almost halftime) but I just checked it out on youtube, and if you think that was "glorifying sexual assault" you might be taking it a little bit too seriously. And the kiss didn't really look all that non-consentual, unless you mean the Prom King didn't consent to the other guy kissing his date.


Unless a guy has a signed, notarized document giving permission, a girl can always say any sign of affection is sexual assault.

I'm with everyone on the Oreo ad being the best of the evening - I loved the cops whispering into the megaphone. I also sort of liked the "Coke Race" thing - the showgirls in the bus firing the glitter cannon had me laughing really hard, for some reason.

GoDaddy commercials always make me cringe, and the Bar Rafieli/Walter kiss was disgusting. I HATE mouth noises in general, so this one had me gagging on my spinach dip.

That's how a lot of advertising works. They're associating their brand with a positive image, not marketing to that one specific little group. Red Bull uses extreme sports to market their energy drink not because they want to capture the extreme sports athletes, but because they want their drink to be associated withe the lifestyle attributes of those people. Chrysler wasn't trying to get rappers to buy their car in last years ad with Eminimen--they wanted to associate the brand with certain attributes like grit, success, and living large. Every brand who takes some environmentally responsible tact in their marketing is doing this. Brands don't give a fark about the environment--they don't have feelings at all. Brands are built on the attributes associated with them. That's how they get their meaning. The insurance agent who doesn't want to look like a pansy wants the same hard working cred as a farmer, and the truck is a little way for him to buy some.

2013-02-04 10:21:17 AM  
Both Chrysler ads were an over-the-top bit of pandering and our Superbowl party generally agreed that they were the worst two ads of the evening.

It was plainly obvious that they picked two groups of people universally loved (or at least not disliked) by all people and them made over-long tributes to them and then shoe-horned a jeep or truck in there.

Very well said and also how I feel about the majority of modern country music. "Hey, I like drinking beer too, this guy really gets me!"


Unfortunately, this is true.  I come from a farming background, and the white trash rednecks who associate themselves with "farmers" turn me off.  My parents never listened to country music (their record collection includes Rush, Steppenwolf, The Animals, and a lot of classic rock, but not one country record), do't have large trucks with oversized tires, no "stars and bars" anywhere.

Of course, this is they way with a lot of lifestyles.  You think hip-hop (true hip hop) likes being associated with rap?  Do you think a person drinking a cup of coffee at a coffee shop wants to be associated with hipsters?   Or politically left leaning people want to be associated with communists?

Right, I forgot, the most discriminated-against segment of America is the White Christian Male.

The commercial was thoughtful, serene, well-produced in terms of visuals and sound, and Dodge should be celebrated for buying two whole minutes instead of truncating the speech.  And I still thought it was a terrible Superbowl commercial.  My family thought it was an ad for CASE farm equipment until the very, very end; I thought the pace was inappropriate for the venue; and many, many others loved the commercial if it weren't for the fact that there was a damned pickup truck (aka THE PRODUCT) at the end.  You can call it a tribute to Americana, or you could call it manipulative: using the dying family farm to sell a short-box pickup.

The Deal with the Devil ad was effective.  And, no, it wasn't because FARK loves the devil.  It's because it sold the product.  It presented a message: you won't have to make a deal with the devil to get your own super-awesome car.  What did the Ram ad communicate?  Ram, because Farmers?

Ah, what do I know.  Among the less cynical set the Dodge commercial seems extremely popular.

rtaylor92: Both Chrysler ads were an over-the-top bit of pandering and our Superbowl party generally agreed that they were the worst two ads of the evening.

It was plainly obvious that they picked two groups of people universally loved (or at least not disliked) by all people and them made over-long tributes to them and then shoe-horned a jeep or truck in there.


Both ads were basically trying to pull the same heartstrings, but for some reason the farmers one struck me as more authentic than the Oprah soldiers one.

pjlawrence81: That GoDaddy ad w/ the model and the geek was disgusting with the slobbery kissing sounds. The Leon Sandcastle ad w/ Deion Sanders was hilarious, and the Doritos one w/ the guy and the goat made me chuckle. The rest were meh.


Amazing how standards have lowered if Leon Sandcastle was "hilarious." I'd say that one and a few others might have qualified for "meh" and he rest were boring or awful. And these are presumably being made by the highest-paid marketing firms in America? This actually has me worried for our national integrity.

Kind of a weak year for commercials, but I enjoyed the Leon Sandcastle one, the Joe Montana stain one, and the Clydesdale one.

At one point during the game though, a local spot came on, and it was the commercial I did for the law firm I'm in (I just started practicing recently).  The commercial had already been running for a few weeks, but I don't know that many people who watch TV, so no one really saw it until last night.  It was kind of fun getting a bunch of texts and facebook messages and such.
