The Coke race spot would have been infinitely better if, instead of show girls in the bus, they'd gone with a Priscilla Queen of the Desert reference. It would have made more sense since the other bits were loosely referencing movies.

ThrnPhl: They all sucked.


static.neatorama.com
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?!?!

RatMaster999: I was onboard with the idea of a Lone Ranger movie until....WHO THE fark THOUGHT THEY SHOULD CAST JOHNNY farkING DEPP AS TONTO INSTEAD OF AN ACTUAL INDIAN???

Seriously...


The answer is Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp thought it was a good idea. It's how the movie got made. They don't spend $100 million on movies with Armie Hammer and Joe NotFamousIndianDude. How do people not understand this?

And Depp says he's part Cherokee, like many, many other people. Feel free to argue with him.

Waldo Pepper: Paul Harvey /Dodge /farmers: Very moving but so over the top, and did'nt
connect to the product enough.

How was it over the top? It was perfectly executed.

oh that's right it mentioned God so of course on fark that is a dirty word. but hey the a company trying to get you to sign a contract with the devil for their product is okay.


For me, it was way too long. I was bored by the third "God needed a..." Also, I'm a bit tired of the farmers=Jesus metaphor.

RangerTaylor: 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.

/rant


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.

Thought some were good - some were meh.

GoDaddy - They are only shooting for people talking about their commercials.  They are getting what they wanted out of it.

Budweiser:  No idea what you're talking about - the Clydesdale didn't have me ugly crying one bit.  Not one bit.  Nope.

Old People taco bell add.  The old lady coming out of the stall with her dealer made me choke on a particularly delicious bite of guacamole.  But the guffaw was totally worth it!

Tide:  I GOT A MIRACLE STAIN!  Cracked my shiat up hard.

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

Bravo, Oreo - you won the viral marketing award.  Whoever is in charge of that department deserves a ginormous raise!

thecpt: The farmer one was boringly somber and excruciatingly long.


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.

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).

No, you're not the only one. I've read everything from "It sucked" to "It was lackluster" to "It was awesome".  I guess it just depends on your own personal criteria.

I nearly did a spit take at that Scientology.com ad. I was floored that anyone thought airing that one was a good idea. But then I remembered, oh yeah, money.

The Tide miracle stain won the commercial stakes, with Oreo in second, but Oreo's blackout capitalization won them the day. Third place was M&M's.

Leon Sandcastle had a surprisingly good showing; usually the league's offerings are completely forgettable and usually not even considered 'competition' ads.

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.

Oreo's moment came when the lights went out and they delivered this mere minutes later--just as everyone was taking to Twitter with jokes, comments, etc.

https://twitter.com/Oreo/status/298246571718483968

They'll be using that in 'realtime marketing' seminars and presentations for years to come. It's over 13000 retweets now and it went over 12000 in just a couple of minutes. The return on a per dollar basis for that little bit of humor and goodwill is gonna outstrip the TV ad ROI for a joke.

Ok, I'm noticing that the Oreo's library fight is not on this list. It was the only good commercial of the Super Bowl imo.
