    All the ads from the super bowl, right on google video!

    What was everyone's fave ad? least favorite ad?

    We the ads this year better or worse than those last year?

    Do you watch the game for the ads or for the game?

    Discuss. :p

    I was pretty disappointed with the commercials this year. A few where amusing, but not a single one jumped out and made me say, "Now that's worth 3 million dollars." This was by far the worst year for ads I can remember. I probably wouldn't have notice if the game was a little more exciting. It was a pretty wasted Sunday night. I could have been playing video games.

    Several "lousy" ones...Disney in the list. But Burger King was definitely the cheeziest. The only honest lol for me was the Bud Light Fridge one.

    I think that was the worst Pepsi ad I've ever seen. 'Specially since it had so much potential. :(

    Pepsi ads have been getting worse and worse, and I noticed it with one last year, I think. It was the one with P.Diddy and the giant Pepsi truck as a real truck...


    They need some fresh blood. All this hip-hop pepsi stuff... not so much.

    What was with replacing the Pepsi with Coke as a stunt double in the one ad? The only thing that told me is that Coke is a much stronger, more manly soft drink and Pepsi is a pussycat. Not the best advertising.

    I did like the ford hybrid one. It was kind of creative....the whole double-entendre of the green statement was great.

    Second, is the bud light one when the guy falls through the roof, that is priceless.

    Worst commerical? Any of the GoDaddy.com ones. I just didn't like them.

    Burger King ad was the worst... special mention for the two Diet Pepsi ads.

    Best ad: I liked the Budweiser ad with the young Clydesdale pulling the beer wagon... special mention for the Hummer and V For Vendetta ads.

    Come on guys, we have to go yellow. :p Anyway, my favs were the mist ad, the H3 one, the Escalade one, the bud light one where mass chaos erupted, the touch football one where the girl got destroyed and got payback, and Superfan Cowboy one.

    Worst: The Acura MDX one, Burger King, and the Fridgeline Oh I mean Ridgeline. I mean come on. It isn't a truck. It is based on a freaking Mini van platform.

    My favorite was the Lost commercial. (The one where they took scenes from Lost and played them to a "Addicted to Lost" song).

    It was great at the end when Locke said "I think we need to see that again."

    Burger King one was the most ridiculous, but the FedEx one had most of the people at the Super Bowl Party I attended in hysterics.....

    I was hoping for more Pepsi machine commercials, I think the Bud Light ones were best. The Miss Piggy Pizza Hut commercial was amusing.

    i thought the budweiser clydesdales one was adorable. it's pretty much my favorite superbowl XL commercial. ;) :D

    i liked the wave and the "magic fridge" ones too. hell, all the budweiser commercials were great. sucky beer but they do make good commercials.

    Today is for watching the ads; over the in the UK ,we got the game complete with the most irritating advert for a budget Ford Fiesta where a woman jilts her man at the altar for her car with mp3 streaming and voice activation? oooh!

    Anyhow, has there ever been a really bad Budweiser Clydesdale ad? Love all of them - and it was so cool when we finally got to see them at a Monday Night game in St Louis ;)

    I thought Kermit for the Escape Hybrid was pretty good.
