Yes, I watched this year’s Super Bowl, though I’m only mildly interested in football. But my hubby went off to the exercise club and left it on so I could watch the commercials. So that’s what I sat down to do. Mostly I thought they were… meh. They made me feel alienated from our culture. I do realize they are not aimed at me. However… one of them stood out. It had to be my favorite simply because of its name: Go Run, Mr. Quiggly! Plus I think it’s funny.
If you didn’t see it… here it is. Of course, as most of you know, my Mr. Quigley spells his name differenlty and doesn’t look anything like than this one.
My 2nd favorite was the “Sandman/happily ever after” Kia commercial. http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/46/commercials?module=HP11_hot_topics#video=09000d5d826a80bf
Fave was Silverado (perhaps because we have one)! http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/46/commercials?module=HP11_hot_topics#video=09000d5d826a0731
I wanted to like the Silverado one, Karen, but one of my good friends works for Ford! Plus, Ford didn’t take the bail-out! LOL!
My 2nd fave was the one with the dog who was too fat to go through the doggy door and went on an exercise program so he could chase the Volkswagon. http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/46/commercials?module=HP11_hot_topics#video=09000d5d826a7e10
I laughed and laughed at the Audi commercial showing the headlights as bright as the sun, and disintegrating all the vampires.
I also laughed at the Doritos commercial of the dog slipping the man a bag of chips for not giving up the run-away cat.
But for the most part, I’m with you, Karen. I felt disconnected from our culture and even commented my sister that commercials made me realize how our society is falling further into degradation, and we make it a point of jokes. Even that Doritos commercial I mentioned — the punch line was the man lying to his wife.
Hmmm, I thought the dog had buried the cat… Maybe I wasn’t paying good attention. The vampire one was clever, too, in a creepy sort of way…
