Happy Well-Tailored Wednesday! This Sunday was Super Bowl XLVIII, which featured the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. The end result was a complete blowout, as Seattle defeated Denver 43-8. Luckily for viewers though, the commercials were more entertaining than the game. However, there were a few ads that, in my opinion, just didn’t make it. Here are the top three ads that I think deserved a penalty for Entertainment Interference during this year’s Superbowl (in no particular order):
1. Chevrolet “Romance”— A guy drives his bull around in just what happens to be a Chevy Silverado and then brings the bull to a ranch where he meets some cows. There. Chevy has definitely had some great successes in previous Super Bowls (see: Life and Apocalypse) but this one really didn’t sell me on their truck nor on their cow-romance story.
2. Honda’s “Hug From Bruce Willis”— I am kind of able to see what Honda was trying to do by emphasizing their safety rating by taking a macho celebrity like Willis and making him do something warm and fuzzy, but this one didn’t cut it for me. It’s always nice seeing Fred Armisen though.
3. Doritos’ “Cowboy Kid”— Okay, I swear I’m not a killjoy! And I admit that this ad is slightly better than the other two in terms of content. However, the CG effects are horrible. Sure Doritos was trying to get the famous Napoleon picture, but the ad looked like a really shabby job, in my opinion.
