The Mediocre Bowl and Interspersed Ads?

With all the hype and chirping leading up to The Big Game, as one of the many who didn’t have a “horse” in the race, as someone just looking to enjoy an exciting and competitive game, I’ll borrow Richard Sherman’s infamous line (that he now apparently regrets, but I couldn’t help being reminded about, as he winced for the camera while being carted off the field): Mediocre.

Actually, less than mediocre, how about boring?

I’m not sure the ads this year did much better, nor the half-time entertainment, it all left me wondering if the whole event has just gone to pot? Get it?

But, there were a few ad diamonds in the rough, at least from my perspective.

Loved the Puppy Love ad from Budweiser, as did just about everyone else! I also was really drawn to the Bob Dylan endorsement of Chrysler, America, and Detroit.

I’ve never seen a Maserati ad before, and I’m actually seeing some of these exclusive vehicles on the road here in Minneapolis, but this ad didn’t “strike” a chord with me or most viewers, it appears.

Which ones were you drawn too? Which ones disappointed you? Which ones really turned you off?
