Winners and Losers (aside from the Bears)

Emerald Nuts - Robert Goulet. They need to make a series out of this. Or maybe a movie. Or a trilogy.

Bud Light - I guess if they didn't have a winner out of the three dozen ads, it would be pretty sad. I think the first one, rocks-paper-scissor, was the best.

Sierra Mist - The combover was a winner, although I'm sure I'll be sick of it in two more weeks.

Snickers - Will & Grace was on the air for like 10 years without showing a man kiss. Enough said.

Garmin - It felt fresh and fun, despite the proliferation of monster-themed ads these days.

And the looooooooooosers:

Go Daddy.com - So done with it. Get a clue.

Salesgenie - These spots would put the Matlock crowd to sleep. If they had put their $2 million into a paper shredder, at least they could have lined the hamster cage with it. This was a total waste.

Prudential - A rock. Arock. aaaarock. Enough said.

Of course the real winner was you, the viewer. Or not.

Was the Blockbuster mouse spot an "official" super bowl ad. It was the best of the bunch.

It was a national ad. To me, though, it felt like a Budweiser rip-off, you know?

The rock paper scissors ad for Bud Lite was good, too.

My favorite part of the SB ads: No Levitra, Cialis, Viagra ads!

Dena, the features editor, was just talking about some ad for a phone company or something, with a tagline of "connectile dysfunction."

Which is cute, but I didn't see that ad at all. And I was watching pretty closely. When did that air?

It was Sprint with the "connectile dysfunction" ad - I think it was 3rd Q, definitely after half-time. The ad is on their website.

The Blockbuster ad was the best overall I thought.
