Who are you people? Did a childhood of transformers and pokemon just melt your minds into a gooey bowl of ad soup?

Did Tivo come to late to save you?

These are the same people whose notion of political involvement involves commenting on Fark presidential debate threads.  All of these involve sitting in mommy's basement, their faces awash with the bluish reflection of their computers screens while stuffing Cheetos in their pie holes.

They shouldn't show a single commercial in the first half but this one. About five times. And the volume should go up a bit each time. And they should add in Dan Snyder's cell number, email, mailing address, country club locker number, and whatever else it takes to get the effing message across.

Not a Superb Owl ad, but one I just found on YouTube from the 80s. Out of all the old 1-900 ads that were on TV back then, there was just one I remembered if only for the dancing and the music. This was on MTV a lot.

The hero welcome should have started with her handing him fatigues saying "quick put the on" and ended with him whispering "you didn't tell them I was in prison did you"

Meh. They've ruined it now because the release them all in advance.

I'm surprised at this trend.  The 'event' aspect of the big commercials is played out before they even air, probably resulting in fewer people making a point of actually watching any of the commercials.

Although really, I think the commercials have gone downhill since the around the end of the dotcom boom.  They should at least bring back the Bud Bowl.  Hell, replace the halftime performance with it.

I'm opting out of the commercials this year. It finally dawned on me that I was willingly allowing marketing beamed directly into my brain pan for no real benefit to myself. I may check out the Puppy Bowl because that thing is adorable.
 
2014-02-02 06:06:17 PM  
I love how companies are now previewing commercials and getting people to actually intentionally watch ads.
 
2014-02-02 06:13:38 PM  
Who cares? I'll be suffering through the same commercials played ad nauseum for the whole next year.

I don't feel the need to attend "the premier".
 
2014-02-02 06:18:10 PM  
They need to do more commercials with Morpheus. Or just generally Matrix-themed.

If you like commercials there is something wrong with you.

devilskware: If you like commercials there is something wrong with you.


Why?
I've produced a few and can tell you a good commercial is like a small story or a fun joke.
Do you not have time for a joke? Or a cool little story.
Granted, some are dumb and some aim to just sell things, but some can be very clever and fun.

The Radioshack one was cute. Short and funny.

All right, Squarespace and RS just for our dose of 80s nostalgia. Remember MetLife a couple years back with all the cartoon characters? Nothing can to p that

Every commercial aims to sell things. If it didn't, it wouldn't be a commercial.

I used to like to watch Super Bowl ads, then I remembered that I hate ads. Now the idea of getting excited over watching commercials just strikes me as really farking sad.

No.

devilskware: If you like commercials there is something wrong with you.


Yes.

Here's a tip. No matter how cute or clever an ad seemed to you, if you can't recall the product being hyped, it failed. Hard. Case in point--everyone seems to love the 'cat-herding' ad from a few years ago. What was it selling? Beer? Car? Stockbroker? A dotcom? Potato chips?

Haven't you people seen enough super bowls to realize there's usually only 2 or 3 decent commercials at the most?

Threadjack/ thought the kid was alright before, but Bruno Mars just channeled the F*CK out of James Brown!!!!!! GREAT halftime show w/RHCP, I'm blown away n that ain't easy to do.
