Super Bowl Commercials: A Make Out Session with Bar Rafaeli and an Oreos Fight

Go Daddy/ Bar Rafaeli make out session:
 
This commercial almost blew up twitter. Most people thought it was gross, out of place, and even inappropriate. But, any time you can watch Bar Rafaeli make out with someone—even if it’s with a nerd—you should take advantage of it.
 
Maybe it’s because I love an underdog story, but I am glad this actor got to make out with one of the worlds hottest supermodels. I heard in an interview that they did over 50 takes.

Most people were grossed out by this one. Decide for yourself.



Best Buy/Amy Poehler:
 
This commercial was simple and low concept, but Amy Poehler knocked it out of the park with her great one liners.
 
“Whats LTE? Is it contagious?”
“So what makes a Smart TV so smart?”
“How many megapixels does one person really need?”
 
Poehler is quickly becoming a star for her quirky and hilarious humor. Her performance at the Golden Globes might have just sent her into superstardom. Her best Golden Globes line: “This next presenter makes young George Clooney look like trash. Please welcome middle aged George Clooney”.

Amy Poehler's Best Buy commercial was low concept but hilarious. Here's a link.
 


Milk/The Rock saving the world:
 
I don’i know how Joe Flacco was voted Super Bowl MVP over ‘The Rock’, but Dwayne Johnson got robbed. The Rock was in two Super Bowl commercials and may have been the true MVP of the evening. Johnson had a ridiculous commercial for his upcoming movie the Fast and the Furious 6, but it was his Milk ad that really hit the mark.
 
In the ad, Johnson must control his urge to save people while the world is falling a part in order to get some milk for his daughter who wants some cereal for breakfast. The ad was charming, funny, and on point. It was definitely one of the best of the evening.

The Rock saving the world and making his daughter breakfast--all in a days work. Here's a link.


Budweiser Clydesdales:
 
What a tear-jerker this one was. I was minding my own business, trying to act tough by watching the big game and then bam—I’m in tears pretending I got something in my eye. I guess this commercial just reminded me of that pony I never got when I was six.
 
This was a well done ad by Budweiser that reminded us of the bond between man and animal. But, if you need to watch it again, just make sure you are alone--nobody wants to see a grown man in tears.

What a low-blow by Budweiser--making grown men cry during the Super Bowl. Here's a link.
 

 
Oreo cookies: Oreo fight:
 
This was one of the most random commercials of the night. Everyone knows that the cookie is the best part of the Oreo—actually, maybe it is the cream. Either way, Oreo had one of the funniest and entertaining commercials of the night. If I wasn't still on my New Years resolution to lose weight, I'd have an Oreo right now.

Is the cream or cookie the best part of an Oreo? It's definitely something worth fighting over. Here's a link
 


Worst Commercial of the Evening:
 
Did Ram Trucks really pay for a two-minute long commercial about why God invented farmers? This ad felt longer than the 34 minute power outage. This may be one of the worst ads I have ever seen. How about a little more Beyonce and a lot less farmers.

I appreciate farmers, I just don't want a two-minute long ad about them. Here's a link.

I thought the worse one I saw all night was the one where different groups race for the Coke.  The farmer one went over pretty well here in the midwest.  I am to the point now where I don't see any performer for the halftime show pleasing everyone.  Maybe they should just have more analysis from the halftime crew and then go back to the game.

MORE media analysis? Please, no. But remember when they used to switch it up for the halftime show? Weren't U2 and Green Day together in the same year? Something like that appeals to the masses because you kind of have something for everyone. Get a few artists from different genres and have a mashup.

I would rather stab my eardrums with a dull steak knife than listen to that commercial again.

My husband said "I'm gonna throw up"

GoDaddy sold us nothing.

that's called a "publicity" comment... if she said he was a horrible kisser would have been the death nail to the ad.  Which is still gross even if she said that :P

I haven't been that impressed by Super Bowl commercials in a few years. There's usually one or two that stand out but overall, for as many as there are, they haven't been that great. I personally think it might be because regular commercials are getting better - not all of them, but occasionally I see a new one come out that makes me think "that would've been a great SB commercial"

As for the GoDaddy one - I only saw it because they replayed it after the game and we'd changed the channel to watch the last play (I'm a sucker). I was actually disgusted...but mainly because the sounds made me want to punch someone in the face. Gross.

was very gross.. he was a terrible kisser!!!  ugh

The 'Dodge Farmer Commercial' may be the worst you've ever seen? More Beyonce? You are entitled to your opinion as much as anyone. But I feel entitled to let you know that you've lost the plot. Guess it had too much blue collar and not enough TMZ.
 

I was being a little tongue-in-cheek, but the commercial was long, out of place and to be honest boring. It's the Super Bowl! The ads are supposed to be fun. I think they were going for the Clint Eastwood "it's half time in America" type of feel, but it did not work-- at least in my opinion. I don't have anything against blue collar workers.... It was just an out of place ad.

I agree about the Go Daddy. At the time I didn't think it was that bad, but they played the sound this morning on talk radio and I was pretty disgusted by it.  I still say Bar Rafaeli makes it bareable.

My two favorites were the Budwiser Ad with the Clydsdales. The Tide add with the JM image... Really the GoDaddy had no purpose. The Ram ad was interesting on that it used Paul Harveys voice and was targeted to somethng other than urban dwellers...

Not really blown away by most of the commercials.

My top 2 were the Taco Bell spot with the old folks sneaking out and "living mas" and the Tide spot with the Joe Montana stain where the 49ers fan has his Ravens fan wife wash his jersey.  

My top 2 were probably the Taco Bell and the GoPro ad with the baby. I agree that overall they were underwhelming.
