My Favorite Super Bowl Ads

Overall, I thought it was a pretty weak selection of ads this year. There was a whole lot of can throwing, iPhone close ups, and just overall boring spots that faded from memory as soon as the game came back on. However, there were a few bright spots.

Captain America: The First Avenger

While Thor and Pirates of the Caribbean 4 gave us footage we'd all seen before, this gave us some wholly new clips and did not disappoint.

Star Wars Kid for Volkswagon

I was a bit miffed that commercials were coming out before the game (way to kill the suspense!) but this ad still proved to be among the best after all was said and done.

Bridgestone's Reply All Fiasco

Who hasn't worried about this very disaster occurring? Well, this tire would help you drive fast and accurately enough to stop everyone from reading that email.

NFL Super Bowl ad using old TV Shows

As a huge TV fan, I loved that they used these clips from older shows to illustrate just how the Super Bowl, and football in general is integrated into our culture. Plus, looking back at these old shows just made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

What were your favorite ads?

Music Monday: Yo' Little Brother by Nolan Thomas

I'm posting this mainly for the music video, because just look at it!
