Kia replaced Adrianna Lima with creepy babbies.

Of course this year is the suck. :(

Also, Kate Upton ad needed more Kate Upton and less Mercedes and jocks.

The movie and GoW:Ascension trailers should be ok?

Half the reason I watch the super bowl when my favorite teams ain't in it is for the commercials. If you're releasing them online early, what's the point? It's just another commercial then, not something special like the Nike commercial shown ONLY ONCE due to the uproar it caused with the chick outrunning a leatherface wannabe. You don't get people sitting around talking about the stuff as much after the game because if someone gets hyped about it, someone else will say, "oh yeah, I saw that one last week." Takes the wind outta yer sails.

I dunno. It feels like it loses something. It's not special anymore, it's just another commercial. I see enough of those already.

Whats a commercial?

Do you mean that blurry stuff on the screen that happens when I push the 'back to the show' button a couple times?
Perhaps you mean the stuff that only exists with lost socks and timestamps between my HTPC metadata marked points?
blah blah blah signature blah blah blah

There's more money, effort and talent spent producing a 30-second commercial for the Super Bowl than to produce an hour of "reality" television programming.

I agree, pretty "meh" commercials... Mercedes' one was ****, just as expected (Mercedes makes mostly boring cars and even worse Ads for them), the Audi's one was ok (but not great), the VW's one was pretty disappointing (bring back "unpimp my ride" Ads please!)...

This thread reminded me of something I read on Vice today

"I HATE SUPER BOWL COMMERCIALS"

http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/i-hate-s ... ommercials

Please, for the improvement of humanity, we need to stop ranking Superbowl commercials. Picking the best Superbowl commercial is like picking the best catheter. Maybe one leaks the least, but it's still a tube in your peenhole. There is no such thing as a “best” commercial, just as there is no “best” tube in your peenhole, or Judas Priest album, or plague. There is only “the least bad,” which shouldn't be of any interest to anyone.

WTF is wrong with that company, their first commercial was stupid but at least it was their first try, they have no defense since, literally will not use GoDaddy ever out of spite just like that stupid commercial from way back.... the one that kept repeating "apply directly to the forehead" can't remember the name of it.

The one and only time I was registering a domain, GoDaddy's prices were almost as raunchy as their advertising and priced a la carte to the max, with constant attempts to fool the user into clicking on service adders. A friend who runs a small hosting company then pointed me to a small-biz Canadian registrar that offered exactly what I needed at the most competitive pricing available, and that was that.

"Da land of ten tousand lakes mon!" :lol:

Yeah, I loved the VW one where the guy talks like a Jamaican.

Apparently some people out there thought it was racist or something. Meanwhile, Jamaica comes out and says they loved it..haha

jesus was that inspiring.


Well, the Paul Harvey narration was inspiring. The images of farmers was inspiring.

Dodge however, not so much.

The GoDaddy commercial was nasty. And not in a good way. :x

not quite, no tongue.

maybe next year they'll add that and call it a whole new idea, a real change in course for GoDaddy.

No need to wait, it's in the 2nd version (on their web site).

The problem of this GoDaddy Ad is that they used wrong people - they should've replaced this dude with Danica, instead of letting her passively stand around... Or they should've replaced this female model with a male model from a Calvin Klein's "Concept" Ad! :wink:

The problem with the Skechers commercial is that "man outruns cheetah" was done during a Superbowl by Mountain Dew...about ten years ago. And that one had a proper "twist" on the ending which justified the ludicrous premise. Anyone who has ever tried to trap all four of a cat's paws at once -- especially the fronts -- knows the result is being shredded to ribbons, which is why the Skechers ending doesn't work.
