    As the time approaches for all those eye candy commercials to start appearing on our televisions, rather than having many threads talking about 'this commercial' or 'that commercial' let's consolidate into this one location.

    Uhhhh, who's playing in the SuperBowl anyhow? I'm just watching for the commercials. :D

    Here's to hoping that Apple has some surprise for us! (Hey, I can dream right?)


    Let us also remember those who died heroically a year ago today in the Columbia space shuttle accident.

    Not really a commercial but,

    I don't know who this band is that's playing as the announcers move inside, and I don't really like their music, but the keyboardist does have a Aluminum PowerBook off to the side! Looks like a new 15 inch. Great to have a little cameo!

    I just knew a thread like this would appear for those of us who can't see any of the ads 'cause we're in the wrong country.
    Keep up the good work I'm dreaming in darkness with you.:D

    So far none of them have been that great. I like the pepsi bear one, they are all pretty funny but the acting is pretty bad.

    Oh yeah its 2min left in the 1st

    The itunes/pepsi ad was not that great at all. People want someone to relate to, like well known artists that use itunes or something not kids. Apple really needs to do the sledgehammer 20th ad that would be sweet.

    Janet's Boob

    It shure did pop out. In australia we get an international feed with no ads and they did cut away after 2 seconds but enough to see it side on so you could tell it was real.

    there's a picture there... I'd post it, but I don't want to offend anyone....

    Also, what was up with that pause before the third half started? Was someone on the field or something? A streaker?

    thanksyou G4Scott... just took a screenshot. ;)

    As for the pause, Im guessing some un-authorized person was on the field, because they seemed to keep the cameras away from it.

    CBS is going to get so much **** for this. HAHAH. I can't all the mothers out there that are still in a fit about it. Here in utah it was only on for 1/2 a second.

    Well at least we are progressing a bit.

    I loved the Pepsi Seattle Jimmi Hendrix ad. I laughed so hard, I started coughing.

    i love the modern digital age... those two pictures would never have been seen before the internet!

    i love what technology is capable of!

    (apparenly it's only taking pictures of (semi)naked people though... that's unfortunate)

    Sorry, I didn't think any of the commericals were that great this year. Some of them were funny but nothing outstanding.

    And what was up with the pepsi commericals. Only one of them were for iTunes and if I didn't know about the promotion already, I would have totally forgot about it by the end of the game.
