Super Bowl Monday

The day after the Super Bowl. The Monday when I know that everyone is just as tired as I am. Up late watching the game, and feeling the need to detox and eat light for a week. What a game it turned out to be! I am very happy for the Saints, and their fans. I have a soft spot in my heart for N'awlins. It is hard to visit that city without taking a piece of it home with you forever. I can only imagine the scene in the French Quarter this week! I've witnessed the Mardi Gras festivities in person, and can only imagine it now that they have a huge victory to celebrate! I was rooting for the Saints to win and was never nervous that they wouldn't. As a Steelers fan, I know that the black and gold always pull ahead in the end!

So, let's talk commercials. A few good ones, but in general I wasn't as impressed this year. I loved the McDonald's commercial with, LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Larry Bird- reminded me of the commercial that ran when I was a kid. J and I laughed out loud at this Dodge Charger commercial because it is so true, particularly the comment at 0:36 since J spent the morning heckling me about my Twilight obsession (Hi Edward! Love you! Call me!):

The Snickers commercial with Betty White got a laugh out of me. The Doritos commercial with the funeral was a little outrageous.'s fiddling beaver was a little too silly for me, and I like some of the other E*Trade commercials from years past a little better: this and this. "Frank it was on the cart path. Why don't you try reading the rules Shankopotamus." The Budweiser Clydesdale commercial was great as usual; I always love those. The donkey version from a few years ago was so cute! The one that I really loved was Google's ad here:

So clever and I love the sap, of course. Did I miss any good ads? What were your favorite and "not so much" ads?

Oh, and let's not overlook the fact that "Jersey Shore" was on all day yesterday too. Recognize.


  1. Shankapotamus... that still ranks as one of my favorite commercials! I liked the Doritos one in the beginning with the little kid threatening his Mom's date.

  2. That was a cute one too! I forgot about that.
