This was my favorite ad yesterday

Apparently, I'm well out of step with the rest of the world.

So what else is new?

I liked both the Coke ads -- didn't get the highly-hyped Justin Timberlake ad at all -- and was entirely creeped out by the Career Builder "Follow Your Heart" commercial. But then, I looked away when the beating heart was ripped out of a victim's chest in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," too.

The Bridgestone screaming animals commercial was funny, but obnoxious. On the other hand it made a nice set-up for the later commercial with Alice Cooper and Richard Simmons.

I thought Simmons was toast for sure.

Honorable mention for funniest ad -- the Doritos mousetrap ad.

I wonder if these videos will really post....

Oh. About the game. If I had bet, I would have taken the Giants and the points. Honest. I'm happy for the Manning family. Unhappy that New York ever wins anything (that's the Chicagoan in me) and "disappointed" that New England didn't make history. I wasn't rooting for or against anybody... but I still was sort of sad that New England couldn't close out the perfect season.

This was the first time in YEARS that I didn't watch SuperBowl. Me & hubby were playing our computer game but the TV was on in the background so I heard the scores and the halftime show.

Thanks for posting these videos. Dang, the second one scared the crap out of me but was hilarious!

I have an award for you!

Well the Cleveland sports fan in me was glad that the former Browns head coach Bill Belichoke didn't get the record.

Ads are inventive, but we forget what they were selling.

I liked the screaming animals one... I hadn't seen these two that you posted.

We were really happy for the Mannings too.

happy day.

The screaming grasshopper was pretty funny, and I did like the Alice Cooper/Richard Simmons commercial.

Hilda has a funny commercial over on her site, you should go check it out.
