So this thing called "The Super Bowl" was on last night, which was the pre-show and after-show hype for the SPECTACULAR AND AMAZING BEYONCE CONCERT! Seriously, did you see Sasha Fierce work it last night? Home girl was on point, thank you very much to all the haters.
So other than the awesome half-time show, the Super Bowl is known to have some pretty sweet ads (people actually claim they watch the game just for the ads, but that's ridiculous. There is a reason there is no TV station dedicated to just ads.) A lot of the ads were pretty "meh," but I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too (who wants to just look at cake, though!?)
Let's look at some of our favorites ads from last night, as well as ones that aren't winning any trophies from us any time soon.
Okay, so let's get this one right out of the way so that you won't be too grossed out to eat your lunch. GoDaddy, nobody likes you for a reason so creeping us out isn't doing you any favors.
Was the close up necessary? Look, our bone that we're picking isn't that Hot Chick A gets it on with Nerdy Boy B. It was the close up and those, ughhh, sounds that did us in. Everyone in the room just got kind of quiet and it felt like we were all witnessing a train wreck. It happened so fast that none of us thought to grab the remote and change the channel.
Basically, we all wanted to take a shower after, because somehow we felt dirty after viewing that ad.
For this ad, it doesn't hurt that my friends and I are big fans of Dubstep and Electric Dance Music. We appreciate the fine art of "dropping the bass," so add in a cute baby, perfectly timed drops with said baby and some slow motion? We cheered. We honest to God cheered.
If you saw this commercial and did not say "awwwwwwwwww" or feel warmth and happiness go through your heart, we're going to go ahead and say that you have no soul.
I don't even care how not possible this is in real life, so all of you neigh-sayers (HAHAHA SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) can sip your haterade elsewhere. Let's just all sit back and enjoy a loving story about a man and his horse. And beer.
We're going to give honorable mention to Best Buy's ad featuring Amy Poehler because, come on, it's Amy Poehler. Also, we don't know what a dongle is, but it got a chuckle out of us. And while it wasn't terrible per say, the 2 Broke Girls ad felt a little unneccesary.
Still, anything is better than listening to two people quite audibly make out for a few seconds.
