Maria & I agreed that this years Super Bowl ads were ok, but not a great as in past years.

My favorite spot was the Dorito’s commercial where the dog is caught burring the cat’s tags.  Maria’s was the M&M spot where the male M&M comes in late and rips off his candy shell!  What was yours?

  • Ferris Bueller Back for Honda. Matthew Broderick returned in character with nods to his ’80s classic.

  • Volkswagen’s Dog Strikes Back. A perky puppy challenged Darth Vader.

  • Brown M&M. A brown female M&M clarified that she’s not naked.

  • Hyundai Goes Rocky. Office Space met and Glee as employees did the theme to Rocky.

  • TaxACT’s Kid in a Pool. A kid peed in a pool to illustrate feeling free.

  • Camaro Graduation Gift. A recent grad is ultimately disappointed that he doesn’t have a new ride.

  • Vintage Cartoons. Met Life brought us characters from Peanuts, Thundercats, Scooby-Doo and other classic toons.

  • Clint Eastwood Motivates Us. During halftime, Clint Eastwood got serious about tough times and coming together for Chrysler.

  • GoDaddy Gets Sexy. Race-car driver Danica Patrick, and fitness guru Jillian Michaels, body painted a nude woman.

  • Pepsi Star Power. Pepsi gave us Elton John, with X Factor winner Melanie Amaro and Flava Flav. Pepsi Max gave us Regis Philbin, proclaiming, “I’m back.”

  • Jerry’s Back. Seinfeld pitched for Acura with the “Soup Nazi,” and fellow car-collector Jay Leno.

  • Double Model Duty. Victoria Secret’s model Adriana Lima did commercials for both the online florist Teleflora and carmaker Kia.

  • Toyota Goes Gay. The Toyota Camry gave us possibly the first gay friendly Super Bowl ad. An awkward guy was happy to find shirtless hunks in his living room.

  • Audi Fights Vampires. Vampires rose in a nod to Twilight, and got blasted to dust in the glow of Audi headlights.

Here’s a link to all of the spots on USA Today’s ad poll…
