But I’m not always that interested in the matchup for Super Bowl.
And like some of the more than 100 million people who tuned in to watch the New York Giants best the New England Patriots, 21-17, last night, I was more interested in the commercials.
Except I was completely disappointed.
Nothing really funny. Not much stood out. And let’s be honest, the dogs outshined every human on screen, including Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima, who showed up in two commercials (Teleflora and Kia.)
Easily, my favorite commercial was Volkswagen, which had to one-up its memorable (and viral) Super Bowl ad last year featuring a young boy imitating Darth Vader. The German auto company ditched the Star Wars theme (sort of) and replaced the boy with an overweight dog. And it was magic:
This ad has already been seen by 5.2 million viewers online
Another canine star was featured in the low-budget Doritos commercial involving a missing cat and a very convincing bag of chips:
So what did you think about the Super Bowl commercials? Better than last year? Better than the game? Better than Madonna’s half-time performance? You tell me!
