What Was YOUR favorite Super Bowl Commercial?

Like every other red-blooded He-Man Real American, I watched the Super Bowl.  Best commercials of the year.  Yes I know there’s some sort of ball game, basketball or — oh, football? — between the commercials.  Whatever.

Anyway, my favorite commercials, in no particular order:

Two Doritos commercials — the one with the goat and the one with the macho father playing Princess with his daughter while his buddies are outside waiting for him to come outside and play football.

The Audi ad with the kid going off to the Prom by himself;

The Bud Light ads with Stevie Wonder;

The GoDaddy.com ad with the gorgeous girl and the fat nerdy guy hooking up;

And the ad honoring our veterans.  Even if it was a Jeep ad — sorry, I couldn’t tell for sure — it was still very moving.

For some odd reason, the commercials I noticed the most clearly were in the first half of the game.  And this has absolutely nothing to do with those funny potions I was drinking.

And WTF was up with that Great New Orleans Power Outage of 2013?  Was this some sort of San Francisco Forty-Niners’ conspiracy?  Actually I didn’t care who won or lost.  But the game went from a slam dunk to a nail-biter.

Whoever that Louisiana utilities company is, they’re a hero to millions of football fans and a villain to millions of others.  Somebody’s Mojo slipped away during that 30-minute power outage.  Stella ALMOST got her groove back.

Can't say that I had a favorite this year. None of them grabbed me. But I certainly have one that was my least favorite... Go Daddy kiss. Vulgar trash.

Tom, your post has been the best part of the whole hypetastic thing, IMHO.

I rarely watch the game, I use that time to go to the gym as I know it's going to be empty

Mr. C: Aw, I kind of liked that "Brains and Beauty" ad from Go Daddy. But that ad got panned more than any of the others. Nobody's ever accused me of having a finger on the public pulse.

Randal: Commie.

SW: Thanks.

Erik: That's a perfect time to go to the gym. I used to love driving around during the Super Bowl since the roads were empty. But there's always the chance of getting stuck out there at halftime when ten million people are scurrying to the minimart for more beer and chips.

I watched the puppy bowl instead. One commercial I did like, was the farmer training the baby horse and they meet up again.

Jess: I really liked that ad too, the one with the Clydesdales.
