1) To see if any of the advertisers can come up with anything that remotely impresses me for their paltry $2.6 MILLION per 30 second spot.
2) My sister-in-law, Betsy's, layer dip and Fritos. It is a guilty pleasure I reserve for very special occasions. I may hate myself later but, YUM!
Okay. So there were a f-e-w spots that got my attention, kinda, but most were pretty dismal. Though, I must say the CareerBuilder.com ads were disturbingly memorable in their graphic depiction of hopelessness and futility... I liked them in a creepy/cool kinda way.
My favorites, however, I display below:
The E*Trade Baby made the whole extravaganza for me. The ads were so good, in fact, there's already a parody, which follows.
An honorable mention, as a sentimental favorite... the Coke balloon ad. I DO NOT endorse using Coke products, or any other High-Fructose-Corn-Syrup-Laden Swill sold as soda, but CHARLIE BROWN FINALLY WINS!! And for that, I post this commercial.
Oh, and the ad for AMP energy drink with the sweaty fat guy that jumps a car "the hard way"...
::shivver:: I'm still queezy after that one.
I understand the game was pretty good, too. Underdog win and all. All hail the Lesser Manning Brother!
