You, like me, probably don’t remember what happened during any given Super Bowl from years past, but I’ll bet you remember Betty White last year, or “Whassup” from 2000 or the Budweiser frogs from 1995, or even the Mean Joe Green Coke commercial from the 1980. And who can forget Apple’s 1984-inspired introduction of the Macintosh to the world in ’84?
The commercials are important. They become small talk fodder for year’s later; they bookmark our cultural history and they inspire creativity in one of our most important social commentaries, advertising.
But this year was a friggin’ bust.
Well over half of this year’s ads looked like the usual shit that I fast-forward through on my DVR. It was so bad, that I can barely remember them now to write this piece. I had to google the ad list just seconds ago to get through this. Here are a few of the worst. I decided to put the worst first so everyone gets to it. Those that follow are bad but they pale in suckitude to this one:
Stella Artois – Adrian Brody is an UGLY MOTHER FUCKER WITH NO TALENT AND SHOULD HIDE UNDER A ROCK SOMEWHERE! WHO TOLD THIS DICKTARD HE CAN SING?
BMW X3 – Defying Logic
Bud – Hack Job
AB is the star of Superbowl commercials, but they can’t all be gems. This one just failed to deliver. Whose fucking idea was this anyway, an interns? It was just flat and even though they had a bunch of people jumping around in the kitchen, I just wanted to turn it off.
Brisk – Eminem Doesn’t Do Commercials
This guy is an ass. What the fuck is he so pissed off about? Seriously, get over it already. Nobody’s buying the “Eminem is a hard ass” bit anyway. The only fight you might win would be a gun fight, provided your hoody didn’t block your line of sight.
With all due respect,
