It's that time of year again, in between buying our girlfriends booze on New Years Day and flowers on Valentines. Yep, it's Super Bowl commercial watching season again.
In between Cristina Aguilera destroy the National Anthem, the Black Eyed Peas destroying "Sweet Child O' Mine" (and any notion they were actually good musicians), and Aaron Rodgers destroying any notion that Brett Favre will be missed in Green Bay, there were a bunch of commercials. $3 million commercials. Yes, the price for a 30 second commercial during Super Bowl XLV was $3 million (which makes Eminem's two-minute long Chrysler one an astounding $12 million...bailout money at work).
While Green Bay fought a Pittsburgh comeback to win it's first Super Bowl in 14 years (and first in the Aaron Rodgers era), I was paying attention to whether Doritos and E*Trade are up to par (they weren't).
In a rather sub-par year for Super Bowl ads, here are some of the best.
