Spending 2.5 million dollars per 30-second spot advertisers vie to capture the viewers’ attention. I resorted to viewing the commercials at Ifilm.com, because I missed the Super Bowl due to work. The two commercials listed above, at least in my humble opinion, tied for first place. Of course Ameriquest’s: “That Killed Him” was pretty funny and would be right up there also.
Pathish had this this to say: “I loooooooved the Hummer commercial. The Hummer was the ‘baby’ of a mating between king kong and some other metal monster. It impressed me enough to go buy a Hummer if I were in the market.”
Which was the commercial that on one local talk radio station in Topeka, KS, callers repeatedly said was the stupidest.
She continued by saying:
“I also adored the Burger King commercial but I hear that this commercial was considered a bomb by some poll or another.
Come on … that commercial was made to be viewed by WOMEN! Men would never appreciate a lady in a tomato dress and one dressed like lettuce than another in a dress that looks like swirling mayonnaise. These components of a Burger dance around in their clever dresses then at the end they fall on this big hamburger bun to become, voila, a handsome Burger King Burger.
Men wouldn’t like this commercial and I remind you, it was the Super Bowl. I hope BK doesn’t discard this commercial if the poll is right. It was so good every woman in America will be out buying Burger King burgers.”
As for the GoDaddy.com commercials, Pat had this to say, “Who would ever hear of Big Daddy if not for their Superbowl commercials?” While an anonymous responder to a post at KevinsView.com had this to say about GoDaddy’s commercial:
“What do big boobs have to do with GoDaddy’s domain name registration service? Is GoDaddy TRYING to force women customers away, cause they are leaving like crazy. Who wants to do business with sexist pigs? Other sexist pigs, I guess.
GoDaddy better hope this commercial brings the boys running. Cause the girls are running away from this garbage.”
To which, I have to agree. It’s time to stop treating women as nothing more then eye candy and acknowledge that they have brains too. I mean come on, it’s the 21st century. Why are we still treating women like it’s the ’60s and ’70s?
I would love to hear what commercials you liked best.
