Super Bowl ads

I wrote a mildly snide post about the ads during the Super Bowl–I don’t watch the Super Bowl, never have, but I wasted the time to watch all the ads (plus four rejected ads) on Google Video today.

And Lishost ate my draft: When I clicked “Save as draft,” Firefox couldn’t make the connection.

There must be a cosmic lesson there, particularly given the domain registrar that Blake recommends and who I’m more delighted than ever that I don’t use…

So: Never mind. Pro football’s not my thing. The Dove ad was nice. The Glaxo “Asthma Control” ad was a clever tribute to a classic ad. Otherwise…well, I guess you need a big-screen TV, loads of bad beer, and a bunch of friends to make these ads really special. I’ll let it go at that.

    I don’t watch the Superbowl either, and as for the ads, since I figured you can get them online the next day, why bother? I saw them today on Google videos. I used some other website last year. Probably will do the same next year. The crop overall did not seem as good. Kind of the usual for beer, Go Daddy, and a couple others. The rest, let’s just leave it at that, but at 20-30 minutes versus however long the bowl was, I am thinking efficiency here. Best.
