Best Superbowl Ads 2010

Filed under: Anecdotes, Humor — lmwalker @ 4:58 pm

These were my favorite Superbowl ads:
Dodge Charger: Man’s Last Stand and Audi: Green Police (because they’re funny!)
Google: Parisian Love (because it’s sweet!)

Other than that, there was really nothing remarkable, although each of these had their moments:
Budweiser: Body Bridge
Bridgestone: Future Car
Cars.com: Growing Up
Bud Light: Observatory
Bud Light: Survivor
Doritos: Dog Gets Revenge
Doritos: Play Nice
Bud Light: Two Ladies
Coke: Simpsons Moving
GoDaddy.com: Danica Patrick (the extended version at GoDaddy.com, anyway)
Coke: Sleep Walking
VW: Punching Game
Flo Tv: Spineless
HomeAway.com: Hotels
KGB: Sumo Wrestling

NFL: Lift Off was my favorite ad sponsored by the NFL:

I felt the coolest for understanding the subtleties of Flo Tv: My Generation and Vizio: Beyonce.

And, I can’t figure out why Focus on the Family is controversial. Maybe it was toned down or something.

I thought the Candidate Calculator was interesting.

Not surprisingly, I have

  • 87.72% match with Mike Huckabee
  • 81.58% match with Mitt Romney
  • 64.91% match with John McCain
  • 60.53% match with Ron Paul
  • 29.82% match with Barack Obama
  • 23.68% match with Mike Gravel
  • 21.05% match with Hillary Clinton

If you are environmentally minded, you may purchase poo poo paper.

I’m not kidding.

In Honor of the Day

I only got 6/10 on the Presidential Myths Quiz.

I only got 7/10 on the Presidential Trivia Quiz.

I need a refresher course in history, I think. Or just a review of the 20 Things You Didn’t Know About U.S. Presidents.

Can you spot the fake smile?

I got 15 out of 20, which is probably not a good track record.
