In a shift from mostly serious blog postings, I decided to list my five favorite Super Bowl XLVII commercials. Don’t worry, that disgusting GoDaddy make out commercial did not make the list. Sadly, my eyes are still trying to erase the image to this day. Anyway, what were your favorite commercials?
Got Milk – The Rock
I thought the Got Milk campaign hit it out of the ballpark with this commercial. They got one of the biggest names in Hollywood right now, the Rock, and placed him in a commercial that appealed to both children and adults alike. It was funny, interesting, and eye catching.
Bud Light – Stevie Wonder
This commercial felt like the perfect culmination to the series of superstitious commercials. Throughout the NFL season, Bug Light has had different superstitious commercials using Wonder’s hit song. Well, they added Wonder to the commercial and it was pure gold.
The NFL - Leon Sandcastle
This was a silly commercial that worked. In an effort to promote the NFL Draft, the NFL had a commercial featuring Deion Sanders. After hearing about how great the NFL rookies have been, Sanders decides to make a comeback as Leon Sandcastle. Wearing an afro and mustache, Sanders looks like he is straight of the 70’s. Some of the funnier lines were how he looks like an ugly Deion Sanders and commissioner Roger Goodell asking Sanders if he knew him.
Tide – Miracle Stain
I found this commercial to be funny. In general the idea of any fans congregating to see something like a stain of Joe Montana’s face on a Montana Jersey is amusing. However, the big punch line of this commercial was amazing… especially for Ravens fans. Unless you were a 49ers fan, you couldn’t help but chuckle.
Toyota – Wish Granted
The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco as a wish granting genie? That’s not too hard to imagine I guess. The throwback to Skee-Lo’s I Wish was a nice touch. I am not too embarrassed to admit I bought that CD back in the day.
