Super Bowl Ads: Which Super Bowl Ads Will Draw Rave Reviews in 2011?
Super Bowl Ads, America's second favorite part of the Super Bowl Sunday experience (or first depending on who you ask). This year it seems like almost every ad set to air during the Super Bowl has already been released online or at least "previewed", which kind of ruins the fun a bit.
Still, seeing a commercial in full, or afew seconds, or a preview online before the big day itself arrives isn't the same as seeing them live during the game. By then, the adult beverages have started flowing (if you're into that) and the food coma is usually fast approaching. So the reactions and opinions tend to differ at that point.
For me this Super Bowl already has a tough ad to top, and it's not just because I was Luke Sykwalker for Halloween when I was in the fourth grade. Volkswagen's "The Force" commercial is just perfect, from the use of "The Imperial March" as the music down to the mini-Darth Vader who will probably become an Oscar winning actor some day and it will become a trivia question that he was Vader in this commercial.
It's linked below and I highly recommend checking it out, even if you're totally indifferent to Star Wars.
For some other notable Super Bowl commercials, we of course have web domain host site GoDaddy.com's annual entry into the scandalous, PG-13 rated link-baiting realm involving their poster girl, Danica Patrick. This year GoDaddy has also added Jillian Michaels to the mix, as The Biggest Loser trainer and Danica are pretending to have a contractual obligation to be nude for some type of shoot. Pretty much par for the course at this point for GoDaddy.
You'll also have the E-Trade baby or babies, making yet another Super Bowl appearance in what seems like the billionth commercial they've been in. The formula must be working because E-Trade keeps shelling out millions of dollars to put these CGI-manipulated babies on our screens on Super Bowl Sunday.
CareerBuilder.com will also take a break from luring any number of the 9% of U.S. citizens currently unemployed to their site to look for jobs to give you a commercial featuring their tried and true apes destroying some guy's car in a parking lot. Jane Goodall weeps at this ape manipulation.
Overall it looks like a promising year for Super Bowl ads. I hope that we get some surprise entrants into the field come gametime that blow away what's already been posted online. I, for one, will probably still walk away thinking Volkswagen's "The Force" ad is the best, but you never do know what could happen by drink number two.
