Live Blogging Commericals (and other comments)

The winner of the Super Bowl is the Jackie Moon Bud Light commercial. I guess there was a football game on too.

==

Congrats to the Giants. More congrats to the Pats for playing clean and not being abusive and harmful like the New York players. Pats 14, Giants 17.

--------

9:56pm: Yes, everyone totally saw that Giants end zone pass happening. WTF Pats?

-----------

Amp overcaffeinated drink "Tow Truck Driver" - disturbing, but not funny enough to overcome the weirdness.

--------

Yawn. Victoria's Secret "I'm in the Mood for Love." Whatever.

----------

9:39pm: TOUCHDOWN! Pats 14, Giants 10.

-------

Jackie Moon for Bud Light - AWESOME. WINNER! 4th quarter and I will call this election for Jackie Moon Bud Light spot! I'm only posting one spot from the entire game, this is the one.

------

Gatorade "Man's Best Friend." Tom is questioning the dog slobber aspect of this spot. Me too.

---------

Taco Bell Fiesta Platters. Whoopee.

------

Another E-Trace baby on the webcam commercial. E-Trade, you underestimated the creepiness.

-------

Adam Sandler: You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Cute ad, but I'll pass.

-------

Toyota Sequoia, for crazy people? Rock on with your mini van selves.

------

James Carville/Bill Frist Coca Cola spot perfect. Absolutely perfect.

------

Stewie vs. Underdog coke spot was adorable. More interesting than the entire Thanksgiving Day parade.

------

Sunsilk with Marilyn Monrone, Shakira and Madonna in the "Life Can't Wait" spot - I need more than that to visit your site.

--------

NFL.com "Mr. Oboe" spot - gorgeous and sweet and funny and lovely. Go team.

-------

9:01pm - About to start the 4th quarter Pats 7, Giants 3

-------

Fox, takes time time to shoot the banans on the sideline. They suck so badly.

-------

Bud Light "Rough Flight" - very funny. "Ability to fly no longer available" - nice.

---------

E-Trade "Baby" - gross and stupid. And it's been done.

-------

The film Jumper - looks like a wild ride. Samuel L. Jackson as a blonde. Yes!

---------

Why are my Pats not getting to Manning?

-------

Toy Story commercial for upcoming film Wall E - VERY CUTE. Want to see.

--------

Hyundai Genesis. No twist, no interest.

-------

8:38pm: Ruling in favor of Pats! First Down!

-------

CareerBuilder.com "When you wish upon a star" - kind of funny. Not Underpants Man funny. But cute.

---------

Alice Cooper, Richard Simmons for Bridgestone - now that's funny.

---------

Ice Breakers Gum - didn't get it.

---------

Bud Light "Wheel Suck" - VERY funny.

---------

8:34pm: 12 men on the field challenge.

-------

I can hear the Vitamin Water pitch meeting: "Shaquille O'Neill as a jockey - it's totally funny." Except that it wasn't.

--------

Sales Genie, second slightly racist cartoon. Yikes. Fox was more concerned about Danica Patrick and Go Daddy?

--------

Cars.com - second commercial. Tom chuckled. I didn't.

---------

Will Farrell is Jackie Moon. Can't wait.

---------

Zantac. Hmmm, lady in weird black dress, oddly fitting, not age appropriate. Very odd.

---------

Acura MDX "Make Someone Happy" (Advancing your mood.) Nope. Nah uh. Dull.

------------

Air Tran, Dunkin Donuts - running not new spots?

--------

Tom Petty, totally perfect for football half time (though I did enjoy Prince last year.)

Hmmm, was expecting a new tune or two. But the NFL is playing it super safe.

--------

Halftime show discussion, blah blah blah. Everyone needs to stop trying to hurt Tom Brady. I don't mind a little sacking, but I object to arm wrenching and driving helmets into stomachs.

--------

Ontario Canada "No Place Like This" - looks like America, but cleaner.

---------

2009 Nissan Murano. Snooze.

----------

Nice spot for the Daytona 500. "Taste the Smoke" - nice.

--------

7:54pm HALFTIME

---------

7:51pm Who is supposed to be covering Umenyiora? WTF?

----------

Doritos "Mousetrap" - even Tommy laughed! Good one - you got me, it was unexpected and funny. First gut laugh of the night.

-----------

Justin Timberlake for Pepsi "Every Sip Gets You Closer" to Justin's MP3s? Wow, that was probably expensive for that much lame.

----------

Planter's Cashews "Unibrow." What the fuck? Yeah, I said it.

----------

Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian - if I was twelve. I'm sure it will be exciting for the kids.

---------

Bud Light with Carlos Mencia "Language of Love" teaching yet more immigrants how to be funnier than him. Whiff.

---------

Yukon Hybrid - lovely upfront animation - I was expecting a financial company and was surpised it was for GMC. Gorgeous, and I am not a fan of trucks!

---------

Anti Drug commercial - uttter failure. BORING.

---------

Lizards doing Thriller with model for Life Water. I don't think so. Fumble.

----------

CareerBuilder.com "Beating Heart" spot, creepy, but kind of okay.

----------

Leatherheads. Football movie with George Clooney. I'll see that.

----------

Budweiser "Clydesdale in Training" was nice. Can't go wrong with animals. (Though Bridgestone did earlier.)

---------

Iron Man with Robert Downey, Jr. looks interesting.

---------

7:13: Ellis Hobbes intercepts Manning.

---------

Tide "Talking Stain" - everyone's nightmare in film!!! Go to the site make your own talking stain!

---------

"Carrier Pigeons" for FedEx - nice.

---------

Dell (Go Red) spot - HOT HOT HOT.

---------

Jeter & Manning for Gatorade G2. Puh-leez.

---------

Wanted looks very hot.

---------

7:01 TOUCHDOWN NEW ENGLAND!

---------

Doritos spot with Kina Grannis. Sweet, simple. Doritos as music promoter - I like it.

----------

Bridgestone Tires spot with all the animals. Borring.

----------

Man fool Joe Buck just announced that all of the commericals will be posted on MySpace after the game.

-----------

Under Armour, you take underwear much too seriously. I'm so over it.

----------

Bud Light "Cheese party" commercial - funny.

-----------

Sale Genie, are you planning to present a slate of slightly racist cartoon commercials? Really? OMG.

-----------

Joe Buck and that other football guy in a spot with "What is Love" playing for Pepsi Max. Yikes, that was a miss. Chris Kattan at the end doesn't make it funny.

-----------

Audi R8 "Godfather" commercial (Old luxury just got put on notice...) - AWESOME!

------------

Bud Light "Do you have a cat" - eh, not so funny. You can visit the Budbowl site to view and rate the commercials. Right now there are only 5 votes. Kudos to Bud for setting up a nice site for this event. You can vote on the foolishness (potentially a double-edged sword,) download the commericals or post them. Smart.

------------

Ford "Centrifuge" commercial WICKED funny. "Closed centrifuge," indeed.

------------

COIN TOSS: Giants win the coin toss.

------------

Drillbit Taylor? I hope this is a good career move for Owen Wilson.

------------

Tom teasing me because I didn't know who Jordin Sparks was. I only like the audition part of American Idol, I don't watch all 48 weeks to know that she was last season's winner. OMG, is she lip synching? That was uncalled for. NOT wild about the dress, it's all bunchy.

------------

House guy just played the NFL intro music on guitar in promo for the show after the game. (Who do they think will be sober enough to watch AFTER the game?)

-------------
Missed the start of pre-kick off coverage because there was a sudden death playoff in the FBR Tournament in Arizona. Phil Mickelson just missed the win. Congrats to JB Holmes.
