What's your favorite commercial so far?

So far, mine's the e*trade monkey spot.

All the Bud Light ones have been funny. The guy sliding across the satin sheets and out the window.

Also, I saw one for Cadillac with Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" as the music! Is that a first? I didn't think Zeppelin was the type of band to allow their songs to be used like that. Kinda weird.

I really was hoping (not today, of course...I knew they didn't buy time) that Apple would debut a cool new iMac commercial.

Satin sheets was the best IMHO. I did not get the MLife commercials at all. What the hell are they advertising? Insurance? Banking? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

mlife sounds kinda weird for a technology company name. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

It would be nice if they explained what they were advertising though...it helps, it really does! <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

MacAddict obviously did not see all of the super bowl.

1.) they had a series of ads that left you guessing what it was and saying to visit <a href="http://www.mlife.com" target="_blank">www.mlife.com</a> that was great as it made people remember and think about the commercials after they were aired and it brought up conversation in a group of what is it and a desire to find out
2.) near the end of the game they aired a commercial which IMO was great of a series of shots of the navals oftons of people then a baby's birth and the clipping of the cord and it said people were meant to be wireless. mlife from att wireless.

great ads. most effective.

exactly
they were pissing me off through the beginning of the game, but really it is genius. it gets people wanting to know more and then when they finally tell u, then u will remember it all the more clearly.

Frankly I though the comercials for this superbowl sucked really bad. A couple budweiser ones where amusing, and the e*trade was okay.

However suprisingly the game more than made up for it. There was much screaming and yelling through sticky fingers of buffalow wings. The only sad part was getting pasted 7-21 in a 2 hand touch game durring the halftime show. Damn our QB!

I agree.

I especially liked the satin sheets ad and also the one where the guy is being fed pickup lines by his friend.

I thought the whole "mlife" thing was a monumental waste of money. First of all, they blew it by letting news shows last night, during "SuperBowl commercial preview" segments, report that AT&T Wireless was doing this "mlife" thing to promote wireless stuff. Shot their buzz in the foot.

Second, they spend eight million plus to generate a fake buzzword that means, what, the "wireless lifestyle"? I think it's a little late to try to brand that to AT&T. IBM seized "e-business" because they got it out the gate early in the 'net craze. Wireless is already a commodity, and is even in the middle of a price war. Even worse, AT&T is adding nothing new to the wireless market. They're just trying to rebrand their existing services to make them seem cooler. I can't imagine that's gonna work.

Heh, "How much?" was pretty damn funny though.

I had a hoot comparing Phillip Morris...err, "Altria"'s anti-smoking ads to truth's. Call me crazy, but which seems like an effective anti-smoking campaign and which seems like a bald-faced attempt to improve corporate public image while doing as little as possible to actually deter teen smoking?

And the ONDCP ads were suprisingly sharp-edged. I liked that. Even if they left me wondering, "are these guys telling us we should legalize drugs?"

I did see it all...and that ad. I understood the ad, I understood that AT&T and mlife had something to do with each other and wirelessness. But I still don't get what mlife is advertising to consumers. Wireless internet routers? Financial services with no strings attatched? I don't know, maybe I'm just not the fast one around here.

I like the Bud "robo bash" commercial.

I thought it was going to be that lame Energizer commercial with the little yellow duck. Then the "mini-fridge" came squeaking out, opened up and the other "robo" was slowly taking the beer out of the mini-fridge. Suddenly "Bam!" that bigass hammer comes flying out and smashes the other one. haha.

smash smash smash.

mini fridge wins.

I think I liked it most because I was expecting that stupid yellow engergizer duck and got mini-fridge instead.

smash smash.

Most of the commercials sucked. I like the satin sheets one, though. As for that e*trade ad, I wouldn't let those people anywhere near my money.

Well, I found all of the the superbowl ads - that's the good news (I guess).

Bad news is they don't have them in QT Format. Don't know what's up with that. Maybe they don't want anyone 'downloading' and keeping them.
