    Since no one cares too much about either team, just wondering if people have any thoughts on the best and worst commercials?

    I thought all the Bud Light commercials worked well - especially the "Roof Repairs" one

    I thought Diet Pepsi bombed with their commercials - especially the rap commercial that didn't need to be 30 seconds, let alone a $5 million rare 60 second spot

    Any thoughts?

    I liked the Budweiser one with the fans holding up the cards. And the monkey ones. And the Disney World one. And Bruschi was nice to see on Super Sunday.

    The Go Daddy one I didn't mind....

    I agree, Diet Pepsi had the most hyped commercial and it stunk...


    The Addicted to Lost commercial was probably my favorite, me being a huge LOST fan and all.....

    Thought the best one was the "streaking lamb", especially the "we didn't have to see that" line.

    The only one I even really remember is the Hummer one with the giant robot and the Godzilla-looking thing mating and....having a car, I guess?

    I was a little weirded out by that one.

    The Disney World one wasn't too bad either.

    Naw, the best one was the Sprint one where they guy has a phone with "Theft Protection"..he goes on to tell his friend to try to steal his wallet, then chucks the phone at his buddies head...the budweiser ones were all pretty good..i liked the magic refrigerator one..overall it was a weak year, though.

    Honestly, none of them made any impact on me at all. I can't really recall a specific one. Probably not what they're hoping to hear on Madison Avenue.

    I thought the 1st commercial, by Burger King was the absolute worst.

    The 1st Ameriquest commerical, with the doctor holding the defibrilator paddles was HILARIOUS.

    The Fed Ex one was best. The hottie getting pancaked with the guy taunting her was great too. Of course, both got the 'edge' taken off with the big dino stomping on the guy who kicked the little dino and the girl getting her revenge in the bar.

    Try watching the game in Canada, where they even take over the American networks and broadcast boring, repetetive Canadian ads.


    Does anybody have a link to the 2000 Etrade ad with the monkey dancing, where the punchline was "we just wasted 2 million dollars"? I can't find a d/l anywhere!

    The only commercial worth mentioning was the first Ameriquest one. The rest ranged between meh and awful.
