Sucky Commercials

OK, there were a lot of bad commercials tonight. But the worst is when a company with an already-lame commercial has the gall to play it twice. Just stop while you only have a little egg on your face. And more than one company did this!! Seriously, what marketer has their head up where? The only excuse I could give them is that they weren’t able to test their commercials back-to-back with the commercials of their competition. I could personally write something better and more effective than at least half of what was on the screen tonight.

On a more positive note, which of the superbowl ads were your favorites?

    I thought you would’ve commented specifically on the Kermit Ford commercial.

    Oh and I have to say that the MacGyver one was my favorite. Emerald Nuts was kind of funny too.

    MacGuyver and the FedEx one. The Bud ones were decent but not that great, it seems this was a bad years otherwise. 🙁

    I would have to agree with Jeff about the Kermit the Frog commercial and wonder why Josh didn’t make a directed comment toward the commercial.

    As for the commercials I liked…The MacGuyver and the Prehistoric FedEx commercials were up there on my list, but the one I got more of a rise from was the Ameriquest commerical with the two doctors, one of which kills a fly with the refibrulator paddles and says, “that killed him” just as his family walks through the door. Good stuff!

    The bigger dissapointment was the half time show! I found a good episode of Crossing Jordan on that managed to take up all of half time.
