Favorite Super Bowl 08 Commercials

The first commercial of the night: The Bud Light commercial where the guy was breathing fire was pretty good.

I also really enjoyed the Sobe Lifewater Commercial with the rendition of Thriller.

3rd favorite so far was the Pepsi Max Commercial with everyone falling asleep.

I can tell you what I didn't like: The Salesgenie commercials. It seemed so stereotypically racist. Like they were aiming for how Dave Chappelle can make fun of different races and have it NOT be racist? Their commercials looked like a terrible attempt. With the Middle Eastern dude with the typical Middle Eastern accent and then the Asian ones with the Panda Bears. It just had me uncomfortable through the commercials.

Its not even the end of the game yet and I'm wondering when they are going to bust out with the Old-time Black cartoon characters saying, "Oh Lordy, Lordy, I need to get mes some salesgenie".

The bridgestone commercial with the animals all screaming was a riot. That's my favorite thus far by a wide margin.

The Doritos commercial with the rat busting through the wall to beat the crap out of the uppity guy and take his 'ritos.

Nothing beats the Bud Light commercial last year with the fist bump. Classic.

Overall, definitely not impressive. I loved that bridgestone commercial though. (apparently I am the only one)

Re: Favorite Super Bowl 08 Commercials

Gotta agree with Drave on this one, those sales genie commercials were overtly racist. My fav was Sobe dancing lizards. Hot chick + Dancing Lizards = Gold, Jerry, it's gold!

Re: Favorite Super Bowl 08 Commercials

I loved the one with Shaq riding the horse, especially because it had a slow motion shot of a little kid with flaming red hair and freckles picking his nose.
Seeing a ginger kid digging for gold might be one of the funniest things a man can witness, IMO.

PS- DRave, you hit the nail on the head and I believe you're in the early running for post of the year.

Will Ferrell (aka Jackie Moon)'s Semi-Pro/Bud Light commercial was pretty funny I thought

Bud Light...suck one

Re: Favorite Super Bowl 08 Commercials

I think it's gotten to the point where Ad Agencies aren't putting out the efforts they once were, and that expectations are higher than ever when it comes to commercials.

The Doritos one with the mouse coming through the wall was the best I thought. The Shaq one sucked, except for the perfect rendition of AMD at the race track (digging for gold).

Diet Pepsi Max one was decent. The Budweiser Clydesdale (Hank) one was good. So was the Bud Light "wine and cheese" one. And the Toyota one where all the people are racing Big Wheels was good.

The Coke one with Stewie, Underdog and Charlie Brown was my wife's favorite.

One of the quotes from the Jackie Moon/Bud Light commercial is currently my IM away message: "A lot of sweat goes into every bottle. Not literally, that would be gross, but you know what I mean."

I really liked that one too. I was waiting for Lucy to come outta nowhere and take the coke away from Chuck at the end though.
