I was discussing the Superbowl ads with some buddies at work and they thought all of them sucked. Some of the ads they thought were a little funny but not worth the 3 million spent on them. Here are the most obvious reasons why:
1. The ads were over done to the point of annoyance in the eyes of one of my buddies. (The talking baby has been going for a few years.)
2. Most of the ads, my buddies felt didn't take into consideration that our country is in a recession.
3. Most, if not all the ads were not funny. If they were a little funny, my buddies at least couldn't remember the product being advertised.
Finally after thinking about it for a bit maybe the concept of the "Free Doritos" spot was taken from the Sprint 2006 Superbowl Commercial below. Most likely I'm wrong.
But who cares? I thought at least some of the spots were good, which after all, is the case every year.
