Super Bowl Ads

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I didn't care for that one at the first, but I liked the ending....
At the beginning was a message that's it's OK to sass your parents, and Mom just shrug it off.
Mom: "Boys, can I get some help here?"
Sassy little Son: "I don't know, can you?"...... If I had said something like that when I was growing up, I would have been the one needing help!

The most enjoyable/adorable was the Budweiser/puppy love commercial. Well done!

Here's the link to all the ads....enjoy!

I didn't watch the superbowl, but I heard that there was a scientology ad played in certain places:

Of course out of a country of 300+ million you're going to have some bigoted, racist individuals. Fact is, you'll have racists and bigots anywhere you go, even places that are supposedly more "tolerant" than the USA. But like I said, the media needs its controversies and the public feeds off of drama. Blind racism is drama par excellence. Social media has turned reality itself into a gigantic f'ing TV show.

Yep, I liked The Radio Shack ad that featured celebs from the 80's, The Audi-Doberhuahua ad ( :lol: ) , The Budweiser/A Hero's Welcome ad,
Terry Crews and the Muppets, and The Doritos Time Machine.

For the most part, I hate commercials...but, but, but....

They're pulling a reverse chick-fil-a.

Play an ad that pisses off a bunch of people. People that approve of ad flock to the company and buy their product to show their solidarity. Company profits.

I was back and forth between rooms, so I didn't see that many ads. Most of
them seem to be rather dull with a few that stand out. Cheerios? Already
buy 'em. I caught the Coke ad. Started off like one of those we're just a
super great country and then went with the different languages. Same bs,
different vocabulary. Didn't see the Scientology ad. Is that the one where
the snake jumps out of the mailbox? -0-?

They deserve it. (The company, not the people.) They had a good niche, but then decided they just wanted to sell phones and contracts so the stores inventory of actual electronics went to nothing. No point of even stepping in there now, plus they were horrible to their employee's and got rid of the ones that were too expensive because they actually knew something. Now it's like, "Where are your resistors?" -- Uh... what's resistor? Wouldn't you rather have a shiny new phone?

ugh....

Radio Shack used to sell a decent line of home electronics. Note I said "used to". Their products, to me, really went downhill over the years. My biggest gripe was the wiring in their components; it seemed the wires would break under the insulation at point of entry of a speaker, power supply, headphones, or microphones.

Using a volt/ohmmeter, I could usually find the problem and repair it, but it seemed like every time I turned around, I was repairing something....
so I had a choice to make; stop turning around or stop buying. I stopped buying.

The million dollar winner was the Doritos commercial; the dogs shopping for Doritos. Funny! :lol:

Agree. The one time I would've settled for more commercials.

Do you think the Denver Bronco's winning the super bowl will help with the legalization of marijuana?

According to wingnut fundie Rick Joyner, God does pick SB winners (not sure about whether it's against the spread or straight up) but he got it wrong in saying the Carolina Panthers would triumph. Maybe it's really Satan whispering in Joyner's ear.

So, maybe the upset was divine intervention on behalf of CO's stand for freedom, beneficial economics and sane public policy. Or, maybe S/He just picked the less self-congratulatory, faith-promoting Christian QB.

Wait a minute. Let's see here: "Visit the Doritos Forest" When they get there, there's no trees; yet the activists are bemoaning PepsiCo being the world's leader in palm oil. Makes it appear that the palm trees must be destroyed to obtain the oil. How can it be a "Doritos Forest" if there are no palm trees?

Along with coconut oil, palm oil is one of the few highly saturated vegetable fats and is semi-solid at room temperature. Like most plant-based products, palm oil contains very little cholesterol.

Palm oil is a common cooking ingredient in the tropical belt of Africa, Southeast Asia and parts of Brazil. Its use in the commercial food industry in other parts of the world is widespread because of its lower cost and the high oxidative stability (saturation) of the refined product when used for frying.

The use of palm oil in food products has attracted the concern of environmental activist groups; the high oil yield of the trees has encouraged wider cultivation, leading to the clearing of forests in parts of Indonesia in order to make space for oil-palm monoculture. This has resulted in significant acreage losses of the natural habitat of the orangutan, of which both species are endangered; one species in particular, the Sumatran orangutan, has been listed as critically endangered. In 2004, an industry group called the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was formed to work with the palm oil industry to address these concerns. Additionally, in 1992, in response to concerns about deforestation, the Malaysian Government pledged to limit the expansion of palm oil plantations by retaining a minimum of half the nation's land as forest cover.

Didn't bother watching it all the way through. Faulty premise - the Nazis are the ones that want Big Brother to be their surrogate on doctors' backs and in women's wombs. Plus, that same scene has been used for several other issues, with different subtitles. Boring and uncreative.

Also, Godwin's Law = Automatic loser.

I thought the ad was funny until the end, which I think is creepy.
