*I* was disappointed and judging from the lack of topics/replies here, there weren't many funny commercials. Considering the money spent and previous Super Bowl ads, I wasn't impressed at all.

Yeah, nothing spectacular.  Maybe by now, the Super Bowl commercials have become too much of a pop culture thing, and we've come to expect too much.

Kinda got a chuckle from Tim Tebow poking fun at himself for having no contract.

Most of the better Commercials were shown in the second half of the game. I liked the one where people were walking Mutant "Doberhuahua" Dogs. LOL

The only three ads I saw that even came close to prior years' standards were Budweiser's puppy adoption and welcome home ads, and Doritos' time machine ad.

The rest were just meh. Can't believe companies paid $4M to air those, plus whatever they cost to produce.
Hundreds of threads killed.

I wasn't impressed with the majority of them, either.  Glad I'm not the only one.

There was a point where they were trying too hard to be outrageous. But this year, the ads were tame...that I'm okay with. But, they were also just.......meh.

The Radio Shack and Squarespace ones were pretty funny, but still mostly forgettable.

I haven't watched a single commercial during the Super Bowl in 3 years now, out of principle.  When the breaks come on, I either change the channel or step out for a smoke until the game comes back on.
