    Was there a commercial you really liked? I didn't see them all, but plan to get around to watching them on YouTube.

    I got a little teary eyed about the Dodge "God created the farmer" commercial.

    Didn't watch many of them, but I liked the "God created farmer" too.

    The cars.com wolves was pretty funny.

    I liked the one where the goat ate all the Doritos.

    As a group, I was not that impressed with the commercials this year. My brother and I TiVo the game and watch the game in real time, and then watch TiVo for the better commercials.

    The game was amusing, and the 30 minute 'break' was what the 9r's needed, though they did not quite pull it off. Amusing end game. Glad I did not bet on it.

    i liked the budweiser commercial with he horse running after his "childhood friend"

    the farmer one was great as well, used to listen to Paul Harvey's "rest of the story" every day on my way to school what an immortal voice.

    I tend to prefer the funnier commercials . . . but Dodge nailed it with "God created farmers" -- they resisted the temptation to overload the ad with Dodge vehicles, it wasn't a contrived ad like Budweiser (which was nice) and with Paul Harvey's distinctive voice practically demanded that you listen to every word.

    A few other favorites: the Tide stain . . . Speedstick Fold Your Panties and Doritoes Dads.

    Fails: Budweiser's Uppity People ad, the singing fish with the beer and GoDaddy's cringe-worthy kissing ad (although I at least remember that ad . . . so maybe in hindsight it worked.) I have to say Calvin Klein's ad did nothing for me . . . but I'm guessing some women might have liked it. Oh yeah . . . and a few other ads which I have probably forgot since they were not all that memorable.

    The problem is there is no time to go to the bathroom. You either miss the game or the commercials.

    It was supposed to project relaxing, no worries attitude. I thought it was pretty good, though of course some are calling it racist.

    Ahh, cause people from Jamaica can all be stereotyped as worry free and happy. Shoulda just said in the commercial "You'll want to buy it even if it is made by angry germans for fat americans"

    Why you gotta hate. There clearly is a strong presence in the music and bong industries.

    People who were offended by the Volswagon commerical are people, I think, who go through life looking for things to be offended by. (TheJamaican tourist Board or some other Jamaican advocacy group said it was OK by them.) As the man said in the commercial: "Chill, Winston." I like the farmer commercial too -- very poetic.

    I know you aren't directing this at me, but instead at the comment that Adios made about people calling it racist. My complaint is just that it doesn't really make a lot of sense to ME.
