It's the one game a year that I actually watch from beginning to end. Honestly, I could care less who wins, I'm just there for the commercials and the food! This year, I would have rather been doing homework.
Yup...I just admitted that I would have rather done homework.
Just like the commercials.
There was something about this season's commercials that just didn't click. THEY WERE BORING!!!
As a communications major, I tend to look at things with a different eye. I found myself thinking how cool it would be to see the broadcast set-up that Fox had as well as the dozens of other broadcasters that were there.
Did you know that SiriusXM was broadcasting that game in Hungarian?
I wonder if they were as bored as we were here in the states...
The Seahawks and the Broncos. It was supposed to be a good match-up but instead, the Bronco's forgot to get on the plane and I'm pretty sure they stayed in Denver. Where were they? I don't know much about football but even I could tell that they were NOT playing their best game.
At least we could stare at Manning all night...that was nice.
Just like the game, the commercials didn't show up for their big debut either.
A super bowl commercial is supposed to leave people talking by the water cooler the next morning in the office. They are supposed to blow up social media as soon as they air. Instead, they fell flat.
I can count on one hand the commercials that stuck out in my mind following the game. Less than 5. For a 4-hour game.
Budweiser seemed to be the only regular spot that showed up to play this season. Both their "Puppy Love" and "Hero's Welcome" spots stuck out and left me wanting more. How can you NOT love a commercial with a puppy, come Clydesdales, and a really cute farmer?! They stepped it up with the military commercial, those get my tearing up every time. Great job, Budweiser!
Another commercial that stuck out was the one by Coca-Cola. "America the Beautiful" showed us that American's don't all have to speak English, we come in all shapes, sizes, races and religions. It definitely stuck out amongst the others and one I hope to see on my TV screen for months to come.
Did you catch the Full House reunion commercial? Between this and their Jimmy Fallon reunion, I swear they are just teasing us with an even bigger full cast reunion in the future. I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!! Anyway, if you missed it, here is the Dannon Oikos commercial. These commercials are always good because they feature the super sexy John Stamos but now that you throw in the other men of "Full House," you really can't go wrong.
There was one more commercial that I really enjoyed and if you were one of those that couldn't stick it out until the very end, you missed it. It was one of the very last Super Bowl commercials aired and as they say, they saved the best for last. This one has to make Junior Nation smile because "Dale Call" was a hit.
Five commercials. There really weren't many others that stuck out. There seemed to be more local spots and movie/TV previews than ever before. All in all, the Super Bowl was a big disappointment this year, unless you are a Seahawks fan of course.
Now that football season is over, there is only one thing left to say... is it NASCAR season yet?
