Most boring Super Bowl I ever watched. Dare I say, thank God for the commercials.

Which one did you think was the best?

Worst?

My favorite was the Game Of Thrones commercial destroying the Bud Light dude.


Worst, Burger King and eating like Andy. Sorry I missed it and I don't care.

Didn't watch the Super Bowl, but just watched that Burger King one you posted.

By the looks of it, the goal wasn't to entertain or make a best of list. Looks like they were going the earned media route because every major publication is talking about that spot. Even forums are talking about it *ahem*.

Hell, it got me to see what the deal was.

Turns out that's Andy Warhol.

Yeah very boring super bowl.

Wasn't really rooting for a team but the los Angeles rams blew it.

They played way too aggressive and impatient causing an interception. I knew it was pretty much over.

It's kind of like a slippery slope. Make one mistake, make more mistakes etc.

Loved the bud light commercials.


Although there were a lot of bad commercials that just fell flat and were awkward.

Interesting watching Bud Light trying to create value skew in an otherwise crowded field of low-end brews.

I liked this one mostly because I hope it means that the Bud Light king and all those characters were toasted and I don’t have to hear anyone say “Dilly Dilly” any more.

Yeah, I knew that was Warhol, but only because I dated an artist in college.

I can’t imsgine any of Burger King’s target audience is even old even know who he is.

I'm curious how we as consumers got to the point of actually caring about the commercials.

It's genius marketing by whoever convinced us that it's a fun game to watch the commercials in order to figure out which one's the best and which one's the worst.

My favorite was the Game Of Thrones commercial destroying the Bud Light dude.

That's a great ad.

I thought the bud light ones were great.

I do wonder if companies get their return on these commercials. That one with the shark tank, was it worth $5M for that company that I don't remember the name of?

Not sure, but one winner back in the day who put it all on the line for their first one, remember?

GoDaddy

Of all the ads ever, I would say they win the Championship of Super-bowl ads on “returns”.

Superbowl Commercials stopped being funny 10 years ago.
Yea, it's gone in the crapper like late night comedy.

Now it's a lot of political pandering and social justice narratives.

I like Bateman as an actor and the floor names were great!
Ha Ha, that was good as well. I got a laugh at the Vegan reference which promoted the stereotype that vegan food is pukeworthy and bland ... a Beetloaf!! LOL!

I think this was one of the worst super bowls in a while. Boring game, boring half time show, and boring commercials. That chunky milk commercial was just outright nasty....

Monster also got great return from their one ad.
