Super-Bowl Wrap-Up

Monday, February 05, 2007
So I watched Super Bowl XXXVVI yesterday at my friend's place and - tragically - da Bears only brought a playoff game to the championship. It was interesting to watch the weather in southern Florida wreak havoc on the gameplay as the heavens opened up and threatened to drive the state underwater.

However, since I'm not a football fan (Note: despite the fact that I have no international readers, I'm going to point out that this is American football) I'm going to instead comment on the commercials from the Super Bowl.

My succinct review: They Sucked.

Really. There were a few that I thought were clever (I liked the GM assembly-line robot ad and the Bud Light rock-paper-scissors ad) but for the most part the ads were a gigantic waste of corporate funds as I don't think I'm the only one who was unimpressed. I mean, it's sad the Budweiser has some of the best ads there - despite being largely dissimilar to actual beer. I had really hoped to see an Apple ad or a Cadillac spot but I either missed them or they were absent.

Anyway, my condolences to Bears fans and any company that actually spent money on Super-bowl ads.
