I am somewhat pleased that da' Bears did not win the Superbowl. I unjustifiably do not like them. I am glad that Peyton and the Ponies (known to all New Englanders and the 45 horsemen of the Apocalypse) won. Maybe Peyton won't need so much marketing exposure to sustain his ego.
The game was rather boring. Neither team looked like a Superbowl team (nothing like the '98 Broncos). The Colts, nevertheless, looked less unlike a Superbowl team, which is why they won. I personally was floored by the Artist Formerly Known as Some Symbol's halftime performance. Thankfully we had some Pepto on hand.
The commercials were very much below par. None of them really stood out. I found some of them quaint and/or amusing. I liked the Coco-Cola ads (1 and 2). I thought they were creative. I thought this Bud ad was quaint. The Garmin ad was by far the strangest. The Career Builder ads were fair (here and here and here), but not really better than the older monkey ones, which I liked. The Doritos ad won in the physical comedy department. Probably the best ad was the K-Fed Nationwide Commercial. I don't like Kevin Federline-Spears in any sense of the word. I think he has as much talent as air. That is probably why I found the ad clever.
Let me know what you thought of the ads, if you thought of the ads at all.
That is all.
