Best Super Bowl ad?(11 posts)

Best Super Bowl ad?mr_spin

I thought most of the ads were kind of lame. But two ads that stuck out for me were:

1. Yahoo - The talking dolphin. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

2. Bud Light - The one where the falcon brought back beer. I was laughing so hard I almost cried.

I thought that puppet one was really lame.

I thought in generally all the ads were pretty lame this year:

The few I liked were:

1. "Field of Dreams" Barry Bonds/Hank Aaron.

2. Bud Lites raptor commercial.

3. Lipton- Danny Devito

I'm really get bored with the Britney Spears Pepsi Ads..can't they come up with something else?

Okay, I'm not much on her music but she's not totally w/out merit. I mean, she ooze's sensuality, she's hard not to watch if the sound is turned down. While I wouldn't buy a Pepsi because of her, I would probably spring for a Playboy if she were in it. I think that would easily bring us out of the recession and then some ;-) Of course all the men would lock themselves in the bathroom and the women might take over. Hmmmm, I could be on to something. . .

Actually for a teenager who's grossed millions; at least she's comes off publically as down-to-earth, keeps her nose clean, and is appreachitive of her success. Even if Britney goes, you can be sure another will be along to take her place. . .

I really have no feeling one way or the other for Britney Speers. I don't begrudge her of making a living. I just hope that she is investing her money wisely as her main talent seems to be showing off her midriff. Her Pepsi ads are geared for the teenage audience of which I have one (a teenage daughter). The word is that Britney is no longer the fad anymore. And she almost isn't a teenager anymore at the age 19.

I watched Saturday Night Live last Saturday and Britney was the host. Some of the skits she was in were actually funny and were aimed at poking fun at herself.

You can be sure that someone is lined up to take her place, speaking of Pepsi ads, I liked the old one showing the two delivery guys, one from Coke, one from Pepsi who sit alongside each other at a roadside diner and exchange drinks with each other then get into a big fight as the Coke guy won't give the Pepsi back to the Pepsi guy (or was it the other way around?)

I agree, Dino; by the time anyone over 40 even hears of these teen idols, they are probably way past their peak, with rare exceptions like Madonna.

She looks good, but she can't sing. She's all fluff. I think she'll be waitressing in 5 years.

Last year Britney went up against Jennifer Lopez in dueling TV specials. Apparently, in both specials, the women were crawling and rolling around on the stage at one point (I didn't watch either). On a talk radio show the next day, one of the guys made a comment "With J-Lo, it was sexy. With Britney, you want to tell her to get up!" I thought that was pretty funny.

Anyway, waitressing? I doubt it. She's made something like $100 million so far. It's hard to lose that much unless you are Kenneth Lay. Figure 60% goes to handlers and agents and managers and general entourage, so even with a paltry $40 million, she's in good shape for a while, and she's not done yet. She's coming out in a movie pretty soon. A new career is launched (and hopefully squashed)!

Maybe the secret to Madonna's longetivity (besides actual talent) is that she began as a sex queen. That freed her up to go whatever direction she wanted to, and she's been all over the map in 20+ years. Britney, on the other hand, professes to be pure as the driven snow, which restricts her to cheesy pop drivel that no one will remember in five years. She can dress in the sexy outfits and sing the sexy lyrics, but it's a joke. She's too "good" to be true.

After watching the overexposed, undertalented Ms. Spears for the umpteenth time, I turned to my friend and asked "I wonder what she'll be doing when she's 35?"

"Rehab", came the unhesitating reply.
Can you say OVEREXPOSURE?Sintesi

They never learn. These teenybopper groups start thinking they're great artists, and their success is just going to grow bigger and bigger and bigger. Doesn't anyone watch Behind the Music anymore? If you are in a teen pop band, you get 5 years max. your audience outgrows you and the young kids don't want to listen to the same bands as their big sisters and brothers. Spice girls, New Kids on the Block, Boys in the Hood, Boyz to Men, Tiffany,.... NEXT!

I just want the choreographed dancing to end. That's all. Just make it stop. : )

1.) the guy sliding across the satin sheets.

2.) the guy getting coached in the bar to tell the women what she wanted to hear. ("What's it cost")

3.)Danny Devito Lipton commercial.

Worst was Brittany Spears/Pepsi.
