Here they are, if you can read through my random note taking. Yeah I’m lazy, sue me. You can check out all the commercials over at ADAGE.com to see what I am talking about in my notes.
Snickers – Bette White, who doesnt like bette white?
The Last Airbender, awesome visually and really makes you want to see the movie.
Dorito’s – Kid Slap, Funny-Cute, exceptionally well played out.
Dr. Pepper Cherry – Little Kiss Concert – I like the Dr. series and this one was pretty good.
Flo-TV : live mobile tv, no spine jason, change out of that skirt jason, to the point, blunt, funny.
Call Barney Stinson – How I Met Your Mother – marketing, I have no idea what the phone number lead to, but it was smart.
Vizio Internet Apps, – interesting visual
Emerald Nuts/Pop Secret – Dolphin people sutnts – Pretty cool, fun.
Dante’s inferno video game – Good music, visually awesome, make you really want to play the game.
Budweiser – nothing comes between friends, cow/horse, Forrest Gump? I have no idea what the FG reference is I noted down, but maybe you can remember. But this was a good classy fun cute commercial.
Audi A3 – green police, great idea, but kinda lost me in the product until the very end when they said what the product was. Obviously it hit point when they tried to make it known that this is a very clean car.
Robinhood Movie Trailer, interesting, nothing spectacular, another Ridley Scott/Crowe collaboration that will bank.
Simpson’s Coca Cola – too long, boring, enjoyable
Bud Light House, different, average
Motorola – Megan Fox cameo
Budweiser Bridge, meh, kinda unique, corny ending, not very imaginative
Budlight Vocalizer, only good part was a predictable T-Pain cameo

Cars.com – Timothy Richmond, too long, interesting story though
Careerbuilder – casual friday every day, meh

Intel Core Processor – sad robot, jeffery, meh
Flo-TV – The Who “My Generation” Will-I-Am remix, trying to hard to reach to boomers.
Denny’s free grand slam tuesday, bad day to be a chicken, sort of funny commercial, good time to announce the date.
Bridgestone – life or wife, cheesy humor
Coca Cola – african sleep walker, cute, but nothing over the top and it was a little boring and drawn out.
Google Commercial – ok due to the fact that Google doesn’t advertise
Kia Sorento – monsters/old toys large, traveling, fun, creative, yet long.
NFL – take/off fans commercial, meh
Miller High Life – what? giving others their air time? weird, ballsy and unique use of money used. Just like last year.

Bud Light – asteroid, unimaginative, just ok
Boost Mobile super bowl shuffle = desperate, need I say more
Dorito’s – funeral/fake death, weak
Carmax – dramatic hamster – “dramatically smart” lame, why rip-off an Internet “Star” when probably some people won’t get it.
Honda – “everybody knows somebody,” everyone knows this commercial sucked
Michelob ultralight, boring
kgb – sumo, surrender, kgb commercials suck
Voltswagon – slug bug 13 different “ones.” Why? Slug Bugs = VW BUGS not every VW, stupid, it won’t catch on.

Hyundai – Brett Farve, nostalgia unimaginatively lame
CSI Miami: star wars space promo, WEAK, STUPID RIP-OFF
Mercedes Benz – car through glass , dumb
Etrade – multiple babies crying, STUPID
Sketchers – shape ups? why? WHY?
GoDaddy massage- dumb, dumb , dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb
Go Daddy – newscaster interview with Danica Patrick, I’m done with Go Daddy.
Movie trailers Shown
Wolfman – Pretty cool, but did bad in theaters.
The Last Airbender – Awesomely cool looking
Shutter Island – hate movie trailers that tell you what the previous works are.
Alice in Wonderland – Fun cool whatever, it’s Burton and AIW, it’ll do fine in theaters.
The Back Up Plan – DUMB, no one care’s about J-lo anymore and no one will care about this move.
The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time – I am still convinced this will be pretty cool, but we’ll see
Basically all car commercials suck, many unoriginal rip-offs, spoofs – dramatic gopher, star wars, superbowl shuffle, Nat’l lampoons vacation, Forrest Gump. Not too impressed and maybe next year I’ll pay more attention to the game and less for the commercials? Maybe? Who knows? Who cares? These commercials were so bland that I was very disheartened with the creativity of people. Economy hurt, maybe, but suck it up and produce something that creates results. It’s the Super Bowl, you should be on top of your creativity game and make people enjoy your commercials, not roll their eyes. Bud Light and Dorito’s overload with average advertising, I expect more from you. And what was with all the pre-SB commercial releases, the whole point of a SB commercial is the surprise of it during the big game, don’t release the commercials beforehand, DUMB.
