Jeffrey T’s Favorite Commercials
Everyone is talking about the doggies today! As Tom & Maria told you this morning, the Bud Light and Doritos commercials featuring pooches were the highest rated during the Super Bowl. Frankly, I think they took the easy way out. Everyone loves dogs. Come on…take a risk! While I thought this year’s batch were subpar overall, there were FOUR I thought stood out. Only ONE of them showed up in the “Top 5.”
#4) Go Daddy Dot Co – Joan Rivers
Ok, there wasn’t anything really exciting about this one. But, I LOVE Joan Rivers. She doesn’t take crap from ANYONE. Of course, that’s NOT her body. But, who cares???
#3) Snickers – Richard Lewis & Roseanne Barr
While I DO enjoy Richard Lewis‘ humor, I must confess. The first time I laughed out loud during yesterday’s game was when Roseanne got whacked by the log!
#2) Volkswagon – Darth Vader
This is the one where I agree with America. That litrle kid dressed up as Darth Vadar is cute! But, this was NOT my absolute favorite commercial. That would be…
#1) Groupon – Timothy Hutton
According to that USA Today poll, this was #41 out of 61. For me, it’s TOPS! I was so ready to hate this, too. It starts out a sanctimonious, preachy commercial about Tibet. (HATE THOSE!) Then, halfway through, it makes a 180. This one caught me by surprise, and is my FAVORITE commercial from the Super Bowl!
But wait…there’s more! While those were my four fave commercials, it was NOT my favorite piece. That honor goes to a Fox promo for House - one of my favorite shows on TV!)
