Eminem OWNED the Superbowl commercials...

yeah, I watched the Superbowl. Yeah, I was pulling for Pittsburgh. Yeah, I knew Green Bay was gonna win. No, I'm not hating, but I was really just trying to watch some good commercials with my wife. Yeah, we are twisted here in America... The commercials for the most part, were mad regular. Only a few managed to stand out at all, and two of them featured the mighty Marshall Mathers...


I remember when these Brisk commercials had isht on lock. It was great to see Eminem holding it down in stop motion (or whatever). I haven't really been checking for his music lately (still hurt from the snafu on wax called Encore), but I've heard good things (signing Slaughterhouse to Shady Records helped). I used to be a fan, so it was good to be able to cheer for Marshall again...

I really enjoyed this Chrysler commercial Em was in, too... but for different reasons. Most Americans -regardless of political leaning, race or geography- have it in them to be patriotic. I personally get turned off by the more obnoxious parts of patriotic speech that are based on nothing at best (and lies at worst), but this is a propaganda piece that I can enjoy, because of how understated it is. And before you say otherwise, the almost religious elevation of the midwest is as patriotic as it gets in America. It's why Superman is from Kansas after all... After the economy took a buzzsaw to the midwest in recent years, people across the country look at any improvement in the midwestern economy as an improvement for everybody. So this will likely strike a chord on some feelgood isht (it doesn't hurt that the Superbowl teams were from the midwest either...)
Beyond these, there were a bunch of uninspired beer and car commercials, and multiple attempts to get me to watch Glee (not gonna happen). The young Vader was pretty fresh too (my wife had been watching it repeatedly on youTube already)

and this Doritos commercial was pretty good in a WTF kinda way...

so I guess if I saw four commercials I liked, that's a win, right? What commercials did you like?

holla!

I was pulling for the Packers. My fiancee and her family are from Wisconsin, and the Cowboys were nowhere to be seen.

The commercials were kinda bland, but I think that's because they got so much flake last year.

I thought the Group On ads were terrible. The Vader/VW commercial was funny. Eminem's Chrysler commercial was classy/cool.

The Vader/VW one was good, the chimps from the CareerBuilder commercials always make me laugh, but as for the rest, they weren't YouTubable at all..

@ David- I thought Doritos had too many commercials. The Mercedes and Audi commercials tried really hard but just weren't funny. The harder they tried, the flatter they fell.

The Groupon ads REALLY sucked. they should stick to adSense (lawl)

I also think the E-trade baby needs to retire. seriously.

@ Ola- I missed the Career chimps somehow...
