The Game Was Great. The Ads Were So-So

And that about sums it up, I guess. Since everyone in our group was rooting for the Packers, everyone left happy. Great game and not lopsided or boring at all. I personally enjoyed the half-time show. The Black-Eyed Peas did their thing very well, but what fascinated me was all those people down on the field in light-suits, I guess you’d call them. That was pretty cool. I’ve had this idea for years that they ought to sew lights into certain kinds of clothes, such as the safety vests worn by highway construction workers or miners, spelunkers, kids’ bike helmets, and so on. The technology is there, and wouldn’t one of those light-suits make for a great Halloween costume?

The Super Bowl ads were okay, but I think maybe we start expecting too much. The pug that ran through the glass door and takes away a guy’s bag of Doritos was the top-rated ad. It tied with the Bud Light ad about the dog-sitter throwing a party and getting the dogs to cater. The VW ad featuring a kid dressed like Darth Vader came in second. This, by the way, was the highest ranking ever for a car company’s Super Bowl commercial.

The only ad that made me laugh out loud was the Bud Light commercial for the kitchen remodeling, and then they show a shot of the landscaping project. Really simple, but funny. Another good one was the beetle zipping around in the forest before finally merging into the silhouette of a VW beetle. Clever.

It seems Groupon managed to get the Chinese leaders’ knickers in a knot by merely mentioning the Tibetans during one of their ads. Horrors! We dare not offend the Chinese! Then again, maybe we ought to – every chance we get.

Well, another Super Bowl is behind us. Now it’s off to the gym to work off those extra calories consumed last night.
