SUPER BOWL AD WRAP 2014
Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I am actually a huge football nerd, so I wouldn't have missed it (I was also rooting for the Seahawks, so the outcome was awesome!). But I have to admit that most of the fun of the 'big game' yesterday—given the lopsided outcome—was the halftime show and commercials. I was skeptical about Bruno Mars performing but he was awesome! I loved the styling of the whole thing, from the costumes to the sweet dance moves. They even managed to merge his peppy swag with the angsty rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers, which I didn't think was possible!
Anyway, in keeping with my yearly tradition, here is a round up of my favorite commercials this year (and here are the past posts from 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2013). Overall, I thought the quality was not bad and was happy with the fact that there were very few objectifications of women or croaking frogs . . .
MY TOP TWO
Animal commercials get me every time!
It's hard to beat the Muppets and Terry Crews, but the sheer silliness of the Tim Tebow 'no contract' idea might top it.
THE TEAR JERKERS
Soldiers coming home and cancer—tough themes for beer and car commercials, but these were done really well.
BEST VISUAL EFFECTS
This was a pretty simple ad, but I thought the styling and cinematography were stunning.
