They all sucked this year, from what I saw.

Touchy, feely, self-serious, tear jerker, huggy-wuggy PC bullsh*t.

Just like the current mindset of the audience & country they were playing to.

When you start having halftime acts like Katy Perry though, what can you expect?

We've gone around the bend.






Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I think it was for Microsoft that's just a pure guess!

It was Always. 
I thought that Nationwide 'kid who died' ad was the worst and stupidest thing I saw all night...at least until that last interception by Seattle.

What about the Snickers one with Danny Trejo?

Apparently, there were 16 ads worse than the dead kid.

I enjoyed the Clydesdale Horse as always. And the one with "Estella's Brilliant Bus" for Microsoft. What a wonderful lady, allowing her retirement money to go into kids who need technology and are allowed to use technology in her bus. 

I HATED Jublia. How in the world did they come up with all that money to get into the Super Bowl? I don't need to see that big toe smiling at me with fungus all over it, thank you very much. 
Also hated Loctite - a bunch of people just rapping away. Disgusting. 
Hated Geico's "Push It" as well.

Agree 100% that nationwide ad was vile, and I can't even begin to stomace Katy Perry.

Pa, this is from LAST year. I don't think Nathan will abandon us 2 years in a row.

Would you, Nathan?

Maddy, we're simpy orphans, another year older, another year farther displaced, another year left to fend for ourselves, thus that much more street-wise and known to the 'public health departmexxxxs'...the things we have to do to survive, I tell ya!
If we could only get Nathan to take a DNA test...

That Nationwide "I can't do that because I died in an accident" was MORBID! Not too many Superbowl ads stuck with me I liked Nissan's "Cats In The Cradle" ad. Only because they used the ORIGINAL song and of course I'm a sucker for race cars.

I imagine it was also inspired by Mo'ne Davis, a 13 year old girl who dominated in the Little League World Series last year with a brutal curve and a fastball reaching the low 70's - the equivalent of a low to mid 90's fastball in the big leagues as far as distance to home plate & reaction time go.  Though she's just one girl, she "debunked" the 'throwing like a girl' negative connotation by being one of the top pitchers in the LLWS last year.

Then again, said commercial probably has to do with boarding the PC train more than anything else.  But no worries, we'll still see plenty of advertising in 2015 to stereotype boys & men as irresponsible, lazy, can't-do-anything-right-without-help dunderheads Ouch

Confused...and now for another chapter of 'Insane Life With PaWolf (Believe It Or Don't)' ...Big smile
I got busy with a work-related issue, yesterday afternoon.
Completely forgot about the Stuporbowel - missed the whole darned thing, nary a thought about it entered my mind until I decided to spend a little more time on CIH, this afternoon...who won, besides me?

^^ I did.  The only bowl I watched yesterday was the Puppy Bowl, off and on.  Yesterday evening was a movie evening at the house of insanity.

Amen, Jimbo! The comercials all sucked, and I did not watch the halftime show (I detest the music of today!).

I completely agree about the "Nationwide is Horrified" ad.  My jaw hit the floor...between Nationwide's  "hey, kids, you could die!  Drown in the tub!! Drink chemicals from under the sink!!" and the R-rated songs at the halftime show (no, "Work It" and "I Kissed a Girl" are  not kiddie-friendly, even when you have that Animatron Formerly Known as Katy Perry lip-synching them), I'm glad I didn't have any kiddies watching the Super Bowl with me.  Shocked

I thought Nathan was supposed to start the actual "2015 Super Bowl Ads" thread.  He kind of told us he wouldn't be around again this year.  I don't think Nathan comes to the board any more unless he gets a PM.  Question

I saw Katy Perry rubbing her ass up against the front of Lenny Kravitz when they were dueting "I Kissed a Girl".  I doubt that made much of a stir compared to the shenanigans of years past and what passes for family-friendly these days.  I was disappointed Lenny was onstage with Katy.  I was hoping he'd be performing on his own (or with his own backup band).  That's the only reason I watched the HT show.  Unhappy

WinkAnybody can start it - there is nothing sacred about cranking up a thread. Heck - a few years back, we even notified all to try out the Chat Chat - a lot of us got to chat with each other, 'real time'

^  Well, it's not just a thread.  It's a section of the forum.  Nathan would have to create the section called "2015 Super Bowl Ads", and then we could post threads for each commercial.

That's what I meant when I entitled the thread "2015 Super Bowl Ads" as in the starting of the section in the whole SB Forum.  Thank you for realizing that, Thor.

Who are you calling Miss Priss?

That's what I meant when I entitled the thread "2015 Super Bowl Ads" as in the starting of the section in the whole SB Forum.  Unfortunately you, PaWolf, didn't realize that.  I do know that anyone can start a thread.  Wink

The only one I liked out of that bunch of crap was the Snickers one. Because I adore Steve Buscemi and he just cracked me up!

But seriously, WTF were these advertisers trying to get across? "Throw like a girl" "Your kid is dead" etc...

I cleaned up during Katy Perry's act so when I heard on the news this morning it was the MOST WATCHED HALF TIME SHOW EVER, I have to disagree. While my TV was turned on, I was busy in the kitchen as I'm sure a lot of people walked away.
