Tonight was the big game, and to sum things up, booze and gumbo be flowin’ strong in the French Quarters of New Orleans tonight.
The obvious big draw of the Super Bowl is the game itself, but right behind that it the unveiling of some of the best commercials you’ll see. Recent years have been an incredible disappointment for the advertisement industries, and it has seemed like very few companies have anyone working for them with fresh and funny ideas. So would this year be the year when commercials rose back to their former glory, or would failure loom once again?
The short answer is no, no there was not any glory. The majority of this year’s commercials, like recent years, were utter garbage, and that’s just sad and honest truth. The only real bright spots of the year came from the always-popular Bud Lite ads, and Doritos made a strong showing themselves. There were a couple of decent ones scattered around in between these, but that’s about all there is to it. You can head over to SPIKE to check out all of the commercials!

Also big on Super Sunday is the presentation of some of the biggest upcoming movies, and this is our area of expertise. Unfortunately, most of the movie spots shown were identical to the trailers that we’ve already seen, side for a clip here and blip there. The only really new one that we saw came from M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Air Bender, and it was alright if you’re into that sorta thing. Other movies showing up were Alice in Wonderland, Robin Hood, The Wolfman, Shutter Island, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and a cool peek at video game (and eventual movie) Dante’s Inferno.
