I thought the game was better than the ads this year. Nothing really stood out for me. Budweiser was sweet and the Farmer ad caught my attention, but I forget what it was selling.

The Montana stain ad was epic, indeed. My favorite? The Oreo "Whisper Fight" ad. That was HILARIOUS!

My favorite ad is conditional. If I win the contest, the AXE ad will bar none be the best ad of all time. If not, I'll have forgotten about it quite quickly.

I liked the Bud commercial, but it was predictable. Doritos goat, Tide. I always liked the M&Ms.

The Paul Harvey farmer commercial was Chrysler, for Dodge Ram.

GoDaddy just needs to go away.

My favorites:

Tide Joe Montana stain
Doritos goat
Mercedes Benz soul (Willem DaFoe)
Oreos Cream vs Cookie (whisper)
Bud Light lucky chair (Stevie Wonder)

ETA Honorable Mentions:

Got Milk with The Rock
Sketchers cheetah

The Kia ad about making wishes started off with some potential but then fizzled badly. The VW get happy ad confused me. Happiness means driving a German car and speaking with a Jamaican accent? Yeah, yeah, I got their point but it was still messy.

I tend to favor humorous and clever ads and dislike the ones that are manipulative. Boring needs no mention. And then there's Go Daddy, whose ads I've never liked. It seems they're always geared to appeal to 12-year old boys on the cusp of puberty.

The Taco Bell ad with the folks from the retirement home was by far my favorite. The Paul Harvery farmer (Dodge Truck) ad isa close second.

I tuned in just in time for the Paul Harvey farmer ad. After about a minute, I was like "OK, I get the point. Farmers work hard. Are you trying to sell me farmers? No thank you." and I flipped back to my TiVo recording of Criminal Minds.

So far, that's all I've seen.

So far I've seen the Clydesdale, the Ram farmer and Got Milk? with the Rock. Like them. I may go looking for the others, but I'm in no hurry.

Tina loved the Rock ad. Now I have to rent the "Walking Tall" remake for her.

ITA, it was AWFUL. The group I was with let out a collective groan when it ended.
