Super Bowl Ads

You couldn't avoid them, even if you didn't watch the game.  So now have your say.

Some quick thoughts to get things started:  The Passat ad showed a husband and father in a good light.  That was a pleasant surprise — and may even help sell a car or two.   The Coke border guard ad made me a little more likely to buy a Coke; the Pepsi ads made me a little less likely to buy a Pepsi.  Some of the worst ads, for Doritos for instance, were created by on-line amateurs.  I haven't decided whether our tax dollars were well spent on those Chrysler ads.   (For some time I have been speculating that the Chrysler ad agency is deliberately making awful ads — in hopes that people will talk about them.)

Oh, and here's an interesting poll finding:  About 35 percent of Americans say they prefer the ads to the game.

1. You really should get DirecTV and a DVR, Jim. Then you could have started viewing the game at around 4:30 and fast forwarded past the pop singer who couldn't recall the words to our national anthem, the thoroughly aisinine commercials and the typically nauseating halftime show. It was a great game that went right down to the wire. Congratulations to the Packers players, coaches and management.

2. As for me, the two ads I hated were Pepsi Max ad and Chrysler ad featuring Eminem. For one, did Pepsi Max intentionally create some type of racial undertone? If the ad featured a white couple with a black girl getting knocked out, it would have been called the most racist ad. Then came the Chrysler ad. I thought to myself, what a waste! I didn't quite understand the metaphor, and it was entirely unclear who the target of the ad was. Was Chrysler trying to reach out to those who listen to Eminem? Well, probably the easiest pointless millions (my speculation) for Eminem, and quickest millions wasted by Chrysler.

3. Game was very good, I thought...GB is the team I wanted to win; I give a lot of credit to their coach. Half-time was a good time to shut-off the television and say the Rosary. :)

4. I thought the majority of the ads were disgusting and family/children unfriendly. I don't know to whom these ads are directed but if it was me or my husband or my sons in their early and late 20's - they totally missed their mark.

The only ad I laughed out load at was the House ad take off with the cane.

I thought the half-time show was bad BEFORE they started warbling a love song to Obama.

On another note, the hypocrisy of the Obama's totally cracked me up with the menu for their football party. Either Barry locked Michy in a closet or she is a total hypocrite

White House Super Bowl menu: 'Bratwurst, Kielbasa, Cheeseburgers, Deep Dish Pizza, Buffalo Wings, Potato Salad, Twice Baked Potatoes, Potato Chips, Pretzels, Chips and Dips, Salad, Ice Cream'...

Um, I'm not seeing limp broccoli and tired carrot sticks, there Michelle - - good enough for school kids but not for you?

5. Glad Green Bay won. Payback for the Steelers beating the Hawks in 2006. Also glad to see the media narrative about rust belt towns get ditched by the Pack.

As for the commercials, loved the Darth Vader one. But was very disappointed by the Pepsi Max one. Not at all kid friendly to see some 8 years old girls in the room where we were watching try to make sense of the ad where the guy is thinking he just wants to sleep with her, sleep with her, sleep with her. Nice Pepsi. Real family friendly content.

And the Eminem $9 million ad paid for by taxpayer bailout for a resurfaced Sebring. Now that's a joke. And no one will buy it either, and GM will again be headed for the abyss. Hopefully by then we will have a new administration with the sense not to pay to bail out union pensions. Note, neither Toyota, nor Ford ran ads. They are too busy focusing on profits and success.

I guess we can thankfully stick a fork in Eminem now that he "doesn't do commercials."

Lighten up, Ragnar, it was a ***** party. Unbelievable - how low and pointless will you guys go to take a swipe, not at the President, but at his wife?
Every first lady has taken on some project - actually, Bill Maher riffed on this last night - LadyBird Johnson had beautifying roads, Laura Bush worked on illiteracy. So Michelle Obama is concerned about the explosion of obesity, particularly among children, and you're out to take swipes at her simply because you don't like her?
Sheesh. Why don't you just 'go Galt' and disappear into the mountains and deprive all of us of your pithy insights and other great contributions to the political discourse.

7. I have to admit I did get a laugh out of Snickers knocking Roseann Barr on her bum. Too funny.

The Toyota/Darth Vader ad was perfect: exactly what an effective ad should be - draws you in then makes you smile THEN makes you remember what they were advertising.

Dorito's made me remember - remember not to buy Dorito's and although I don't eat candy bars often it might be worth it to buy a Snickers to reward them for putting Roseanne Barr where she belongs....

8. Nope our pet liberal can't see the hypocrisy in telling us what to eat and when to eat it.

School kids can't bring birthday cupcakes anymore:
Lighten up, Ragnar, it was a **** party."

Can't have bake sales to supplement school coffers: Lighten up, Ragnar, it was a **** party."

Can't bring Halloween treats: Lighten up, Ragnar, it was a **** party."

Look up hypocrisy in the dictionary Dr pet - who do you see?


Obama Super Bowl bash: All the food and drinks we peons aren't supposed to have

Hey, if the prez wants to get schnonkered and clog his arteries with fatty foods, I doubt I could possibly care less than I already do. But for the love of Pete, do not tell me that I need to lay off of the same stuff that you are downing unless you are willing to live by example.

And this isn't the first time Michelle Antoinette has spit at us while lecturing us - lots of pics at various places of her stuffing cheeseburgers and fries in her pie hole and just last week she publicly salivated over all that good barbecue she expects to chow on down at the DNC convention in Charlotte.

Hypocrites,

12. "Imported from Detroit." Nice. Glad they're finally acknowledging they're a third-world nation. Too bad their target demographic (judging by the ad) can't afford a bus pass let alone a new car.

13. how low and pointless will you guys go to take a swipe, not at the President, but at his wife? - Dr. Lib

Maybe if his wife wasn't constantly running her mouth telling us what to do - and then ignoring those directives when it comes to herself - we wouldn't be taking swipes at her.

Got it?

Posted by: jimg on February 7, 2011 01:11 PM
14. @6 - Ex-squeeze us - don't we realize the Libs are the high moral authority (In only their own minds). It also means (in their own minds again) to them that they never have to say they're sorry.

In reality it is; "Don't do as I do, do as I say", Michelle Obama or whoever wears the Democratic stripe.

15. 6. "Unbelievable - how low and pointless will you guys go to take a swipe, not at the President, but at his wife?"

Not even close to the filth and hatred directed by the left toward Sarah Palin, or any other conservative for that matter. Are you seeing anyone for that condition yet? You really should you know. It's not healthy.


Posted by: Jack on February 7, 2011 03:31 PM
16. @Dr. Liberal: Michelle Obama took a swipe at the entire country when she let the cat out of the bag that she wasn't proud of her country until her husband started winning primary elections. That was the first time, she stated, that she was proud of her country. Many of us were proud on many occasions long before that.

17. "Let's Move! Superbowl Edition!"

You know, I honestly can't help but laugh sometimes. Liberals. I swear to god, they just set themselves up for ridicule. It's like they have no clue whatsoever. They say one thing, and do another. The left hand never knows what the right hand is doing. It's hysterical.

So, I suppose I should set this up. OK. I'm a young, male, red-blooded American. I loooove football. So what was I doing yesterday? Of course - Superbowl Sunday.

Now, honestly, I didn't really care about this Superbowl. I got a big gust of hope when my Seahawks took down the Saints. I hate the Saints. They're my second most hated team next to the Patriots. I don't just want to see the Saints lose. I want to see them end up dead last, with all their starters on the IRL. (The Patriots, however, I want to see their plane blow up in midair.) I knew my poor Seahawks wouldn't stand up to Da Bears though, but still - it was good while it lasted. But I WANTED the Seahawks to go again to face off against the Steelers - because every ounce of my soul was screaming "grudge match!" for the bullshit ref job back in '05. Alas, I was resigned to rooting for Green Bay just because I'm still mad at Pittsburgh five years later.

You know, everything about this Superbowl was boring. The game was pretty weak. A testament to the IRL. And I especially hate any Superbowl that ends on a QB-kneel. (In this case, two!) Yes yes, it was fun to see Pittsburgh make a valiant effort to recover ground after the first quarter - but still. Not a play in the game was exciting enough, in my opinion, to make Sportscenter's Top Ten. It was just a largely boring game. Rothelesburger getting sacked (not a minute after the sportscaster said he hadn't been sacked yet) was pretty much my favorite part.

So, blah on the game. How about the commericals? Superbowl commericials are an American tradition.

Sigh. The once hilarious and sexy commericials have been totally neutered out of what I can only conclude is a crippling fear of offending anyone anywhere. (Hey, side note, was anyone convinced after those commericals that Detroit isn't a desolate wasteland with crippling unemployment?) Instead, they seem like they're making a half-assed attempt at empowerment. Did anyone else get that vibe from them? Like, they're trying to pitch us these ideas that everything is getting better and everything is going to be all right? The ONLY one I really liked was the preview for tomorrow's House - which played off the Mean Joe Green commerical. Which was really weird, because MOMENTS before it came on (I kid you not) I was so thinking, "Man, what ever happened to the Mean Joe Green Coke commercials?"

"I just watched a guy die. Why would I want your fried Mexican pastry?" And then *WHAP* "Ooooowww!!!" "Oh, I totally thought you were going to catch that." I laughed at that one. That's the ONLY one I laughed at. There's something really wrong when that's the ONLY funny Superbowl commercial.

Hmm. How about the halftime show?

The halftime show was blah - the ONLY redeeming factor was the sudden appearance of Slash, but then his performance was like 3 minutes of guitar-for-hire. (Though, I'll give Usher his props for the jump-to-splits thing he did. That was pretty cool.) You know what really pissed me off about it? The artists chickened out. That show, with the lights, and the stage, and the hundreds of people - it COULD have been really cool. They went with a 100-yd display that made us think TRON. It could have been totally awesome.

But then the frickin' coward auto-tuned.

As soon as I heard that unmistakeable sound, I thought, "Lame." Because, it so totally was. I was like, "Oh what the hell. How gay is this." You know what Black Eyed Peas? The Who used totally cool lights and stuff too. You know why it was cooler? Because it was REAL. "Baba O'Riley" was a million times more awesome because we knew it was a live performance. Because we FELT a live performance. You know what auto-tune is? It's total and complete shit. Ellen frickin' Degeneres can sing a Superbowl concert with auto-tune. Shame on you halftime show.

You know who would have made awesome use of that field with the hundreds of people in light-costumes?

Daft Punk.

It would have been weird, and not everybody would have understood it - but I kid you not, that would have blown the friggin' roof off.

Oh, and then how about Christina "I can't decide if I'm from New York, or from some South American 3rd world country" Aguilera. OK, you know what? I've never understood how a professional singer (let alone a purported "diva") screws up the National Anthem. I can understand it when it's an 8yr old. But a professional, international star whose ONLY job that day is to remember a song we all know if only as a matter of habit? No excuse. (Even the 8yr old didn't forget! Poor girl's mic just died. ps. Someone ought to slap the bitch that laughed at her.)

And for pete's sake. You know what? Unless you're pre-crack Whitney Houston, don't even try and sing it gospel. We all remember Whitney, Christina. And you're no Whitney.

Honestly? The most exciting part was the commentary about the pissed off ticket holders who were refused seating because Texas didn't plan for adverse weather! I suppose it's global warming's fault. No, wait, global warming causes warming. Or... wait, what?

Man, I feel like I got derailed there. What was I talking about...

Oh right, liberal hypocrisy. OK, so let's talk about my favorite part about this lackluster Superbowl. It wasn't the game. It wasn't the commercials. It wasn't the show. So... what was it? You know, I didn't even learn about this until after I got home and pulled up my RSS news feed. But when I did, oh how I laughed and laughed. Check it:

The rest of the menu for the 100 or so guests at the White House bash is tailgate-friendly even if served inside the Executive Mansion: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza and Buffalo wings with sides of German potato salad, twice-baked potatoes and assorted chips and dips.
Gee Bambi, that's kinda gunna piss your wife off, isn't it. Seeing, y'know, how she's appointed herself as the Healthy Food Czar. And we all know you're terrified of upsetting your wife, so... how exactly did you get away with this menu? Did you dispatch some secret service agents to chloroform her and lock her in the basement for the length of the game?

Little Miss Bambi seems to think that cheeseburgers and chips and pizza are bad for people (especially kids!). SO bad that she has to try and ban them from schools! They're contributing to obesity! For pete's sake, she called it an epidemic! Shouldn't Obama's Superbowl spread have consisted of raw broccoli and cottage cheese (and several dozen absolutely miserable guests who had nothing good to eat)?

Ahh, but there's the left-wing for you. Saying one thing, and doing the complete opposite. Telling you what you want to hear, but utterly failing to practice what they preach.

That is, in a nutshell, liberalism.

19. Uh, the topic was Super Bowl ads before your Michelle Obama infatuation took over.

Kind of sweet how you justify the criticism of your obsession with her with variations of "They're just as mean if not meaner", "She hates her country", and explaining 'liberalism' by way of Super Bowl party menu.

Top notch work by the usual regurgitators posting here. Almost as entertaining as the Darth Vader commercial.

22. The problem with liberals as evidence by Michelle Antoinette's hypocrisy is they are so d*mned drunk with their own ideas they don't know where or when to stop.

I will be the first to admit that encouraging children to eat healthier is a fine and laudable idea. BUT she didn't stop there: she mandated, she hectored, she lectured - and then she spit at those she mandated, lectured and hectored by not LIVING what she preaches. Don't pretend be anti-obesity while stuffing your own face.

The same can be said for public education - the liberals started the federal agency with ostensibly laudable reasons - then they went to far with the unions, with actively working against CHOICE in education, with social engineering rather than TEACHING and we end up with few barely literate graduates in a consistently falling graduation rate and rankings equivalent to third world countries.

The same might even be said for abortion - they said they wanted the few of them being performed safer and we end up with nearly 1/6th of our population murdered in the womb.

The same might be said for the welfare state: everyone wants to give the needy a helping hand, but liberals went from that gracious charity to a mandate that led to a welfare nation with 14% of the US population on food stamps.

I wonder (snicker, no I don't) what the reaction to these same ideas if they had been the cause of Laura Bush instead of her literacy agenda.

AND I guarand*mntee Michelle Antoinette never volunteered in her kids school kitchen or lunch room: you can present all the limp broccoli you buy, you can force it on their free food plates, then you can stand and watch them dump it right into the trash after they finish the things they like that they begged from their pals who brought a lunch they WILL eat. We saw it everyday in PRIVATE school that served lots of choices. Hells bells watch the d*mned commercial for chicken nuggets!

Predictable unintended consequences of liberal hypocrisy.

23. #6 & 19 - I notice you haven't offered a rebuttal to the Michelle Antoinette criticism - only an attack. How telling. Can't find one in the talking points?

Posted by: RagnarDanneskjold on February 8, 2011 12:01 PM
24. Get ready for more of the same, Ragnar, as we proceed towards the '12 elections. When they can't counter truth, the left turns to their tried and true tactics, verbal abuse name-calling.

Posted by: Saltherring on February 8, 2011 02:54 PM
25. Rebuttal to what #23? You're complaining that the First Lady has raised the issue of childhood obesity, you've convinced yourself she's trying to control the food intake you can provide your children, and you're positive that because she had a fattening dinner during the Super Bowl that progressivism is a failed ideology.

The more you type this kind of stuff to promote your own opinions, the less counter arguments anyone needs to provide.

Posted by: godtomsatan on February 8, 2011 04:38 PM
26. How about a rebuttal to the blatant hypocrisy? Your type likes to whine that we can see nothing good in her/them/you, but as or more egregious is that you can find no blame when some is clearly due.

She raised the issue of childhood obesity, and if that was all she did raise the issue and encourage better habits, her hypocrisy wouldn't be an issue nor fodder for mocking. But she went further with her lecturing, governmental mandates, punishing taxes on products the government deems bad, telling restaurants to omit salt and reduce portions and banning tempting toys. This isn't just her highness, it's governmental bullying encouraged by her stance. IF her stance is legit to her then she should publicly and privately live it. Instead she photos ops, then has the parks service maintain "her garden" and run to the market to buy the veggies they "picked" for the Top Chef show. She lectures while she indulges. 'Do as I say not as I do' seems to be the Obama family/administration motto.

I seem to remember that every time a 'family values' conservative slipped with failings in his personal life, the noisy left couldn't wait to gleefully engage in loudly pointing out and mocking it. However, those with the failings were not forcing their 'family values' upon the rest of us through their control of government schools, though bans, though mandates and taxes AND they typically publicly admit to and apologize for their indiscretions, while Michelle Antoinette publicly salivates over her excitement and plans to indulge in hers.

Yep, glaring, disgusting hypocrisy.

28. 21: "Consider writing for Sound Politics?"

Half a decade ago, maybe. But I'm an expatriate. I fled Washington around the time they started pushing their paternalistic, and utterly fascist smoking bans and mandatory recycling programs. When I learned that the ass-backwards city of Seattle - that has a major inferiority complex on account of NOT being San Francisco - wanted to tear down the major arterial highway that DOESN'T bottleneck under the Convention Center because they wanted a "pretty waterfront view," I was done. When I realized I had nothing in common with that State, and that there was nothing I could support about it or any of its idiot socialist politicians - I did the only thing an honest federalist could do: went somewhere more in tune with my ideology. That's why we're the "United States" - not "America." Because the whole idea behind it all was self-determination. And if someone didn't like the way things were going, they were free to go somewhere better. Somewhere more aligned with their values. And that's exactly what I did.

Seattle is a dying, decaying victim of statist "progress"ivism. I got out while the getting was good. Still, I keep tabs on it. If only because I still have contacts there.

And I love my Seahawks.

29. Yeah, lots of disgusting stuff there with the kielbasa and chips. Why do they hate America?

Posted by: godtomsatan on February 8, 2011 11:19 PM
30. Her majesty has spoken!

So I have a little mental exercise for our liberals - do they have the courage to answer?

Let's say Michelle Antoinette was really serious about obesity... why START with the entire country with sweeping mandates (well, other than that's the way of hubby and dems exemplified by the daily failing Obamacare)?

She has at her fingertips 14% of the US population who have been repeatedly documented as the most obese, the most unhealthy and universally used as an excuse to make children cry and force us all into salt free, flavor free diets.

That's right, she SHOULD have started with the 14% of Americans on FOOD STAMPS. They are already living on government/TAXPAYER largesse.

Why hasn't she mandated tighter, healthier controls on what THEY eat? Why hasn't she started with the kids who are getting FREE breakfast lunch and dinner via the taxpayer?

It would be easy to tie limits to their food cards: ONLY fresh fruits, grains and dairy, ONLY certain cost effective/nutritive cuts of meat. NO processed foods, NO take and bake meals, NO salty, sugary, fatty snacks and drinks, NO instant food (particularly when FRESH whole is available (example rolled oats vs instant oatmeal).

She could even incentivize by offering DOUBLE dollars on fresh fruits and vegetables and/or mandate half value on things like lunch meats or convenience sliced cheese vs whole blocks.

She could have used her signature project to TEACH so many who simply don't know better how to eat better by modifying their buying habits AND as an added benefit made them healthier (which is purportedly hubby's goal) and thus saving the taxpayer's a few bucks.

So loud libs - why hasn't she?

That's right - it isn't about nutrition, it's about CONTROL.

31. If Michelle really cared about children
It's none of Michelle Obama's business what people eat, and it's certainly none of her business what portion size restaurants serve. So, why is she using her husband's position to strong-arm restaurants into conformity with her will?

If she is concerned about the welfare of Americans in general, and women, children and families specifically - why isn't she using her husband's bully pulpit to fight something that is undeniably important and that will truly make a difference? Something like human trafficking in America....

...What woman, especially a woman with young daughters, would not view the crime of forced sexual servitude and abortion as not being more important than the size of the pork chop a restaurant serves as an entrée?

I expect chirping crickets, how about you, Saltherring?

32. Michelle Obama: A Legacy Built on Salad
Of what good are salad bars in inner-city schools like Detroit, Newark, and Camden where too many kids are dropouts or truants? Will arugula, toasted sesame seeds, and splashes of raspberry vinaigrette really draw these kids back to classrooms? Or even lunchrooms?...
...As the first African-American First Lady in the nation's history, Michelle Obama is uniquely positioned to bring her appeal and unprecedented influence to bear in the fight to end the debauching and destruction of inner-city black and minority kids. These kids don't need a steady diet of tofu and bean sprouts. What they need are discipline, structure, strong values, intact families, church, safe streets, and public schools that actually educate. That's a menu for the First Lady to promote.

Michelle Denies the Fries
Michele attempts to dictate to restaurants what they can serve.

... The problem with the whole scenario is that while the First Lady's advisors were "holding private talks" with the National Restaurant Association, she spent the last 12 months partaking of foodie adventures and paying no attention to quantity, calories, sugar, fat or sodium content. ...
...Michelle's 2010 food inventory is not even close to being comprehensive and yet this woman feels she has the authority to deny Americans the right to choose the quantity and content of what we eat?

Where are those pesky liberals? No doubt hiding from the truth, eh, crickets?

N.Y. Rep Resigns After Claim He Sent Shirtless Photo to Woman on Craigslist

Rep. Christopher Lee resigned from office Wednesday just hours after a report claimed the married Republican congressman sent a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craigslist. ...
"It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York. I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness," he said in a statement.

just hours
I regret the harm
I deeply and sincerely apologize
I have made profound mistakes

Yooo hooo little lefty crickets in 3, 2, ...
