How about that Super Bowl last night? That was something wasn’t it? My team wasn’t playing, but we still gathered as a family and watched while munching on some seriously delicious appetizers. That’s what us “my team didn’t make it into the big game people” do. That and check out the commercials. That’s one of the highlights of the game, isn’t it?
Some ads were hysterical like the Kia Space Babies. I could watch that baby’s cheeks shake a thousand times and it will always make me giggle.
And then there were the ads like the Jeep commercial that reduced me to a puddle of tears. Thank God for my stockpile of tissues.
There were also the dumb ads that made you wonder what the point of the ad even was. That Coke commercial in my opinion was just a downright waste of advertising dollars. I wish they would go back to what they’re good at. Fuzzy polar bears. So much better than showgirls in pink feathers.
It wouldn’t be a proper Super Bowl without one highly offensive ad and the winner of the worst ad of the year goes to Go Daddy for their Sexy Meets Smart. This spot stars the super model Bar Refaeli and some exceedingly young, not so very attractive male who’s supposed to personify all things geekdom.
The two share the longest most disgusting kiss known to mankind. Seriously, it made me nauseous. Wet lips smacking together as if they were simultaneously eating a gloppy ruben sandwich. Hurl.
To think that this was even remotely appropriate for family viewing is laughable if not appalling. Shame on Go Daddy and CBS for even allowing it to air.
Did you know that CBS declined earlier versions of this ad due to indecency? Makes you wonder what those could’ve possibly been like? Maybe they sealed the deal at the end? It’s the only thing that could make this ad any more uncomfortable to watch.
Also, did you know that they had to shoot this ad 45 times to get what they wanted? Makes you glad you weren’t on the film crew, right?
Go Daddy certainly got people’s attention with this ad. But for this girl, the only thing I’m going to think about when I hear about Go Daddy is puke. Way to brand yourself Go Daddy.
What do you think? Any thoughts on the best and worst ads from this year’s Super Bowl? Are you offended by the Go Daddy ad or do you think it’s harmless fun?
