Playing right into our enjoyment of sick humor, the first Ameriquest Super Bowl spot showed a couple of doctors presiding over a patient with cut shots to the patient's husband and daughter. A fly is buzzing around the patient and one of the doctors kills the fly with the those heart paddle things and says, "That killed him" just as the wife and daughter walk into the room. Love that sick humor! However, we forget what the spot had to do with mortgages. See the ad here.
The FedEx ad took place in pre-historic time with a cave man setting a bird free becasue the bird was delivering a package for him. but as soon as he set the bird free, a large creature devoured it. The cave man goes back into the cave and his "boss," who wanted the package delivered overnight, fires him but than man, complains, "FedX isn't invented yet!" He then walks out of the cave, dejected, only to be stomped on by some gigantic elephant foot. Funny. Click More to see the ad.
OK, we were already to hate the Burger King Brooke Burke Whopperettes commercial until all those Whopperettes started flying through the air, dressed like burger ingredients, and landing face first, one on top of each other, until they formed a Whopper presented by Burke all while that really freaky looking Burger King dude looked on. From Crispin and we like it. See the ad here. And thank you Crispin for making it so easy for us ad types that obsess over this stuff to actually find and view the ad. Much appreciated.
Is it just us or are the creative folks behind the Jessica Simpson Pizza Hut ad pulling one over on us? The copy, "These bites are gonna pop right into you" uttered by Simpson as she lears into the eyes of that horned up kid just can't help is feel there's some sort of sexual overtone going on here. Just what bites is she talking about putting into his mouth?
With an explosive orgasm of motor vehicles including Hell's Angel's-like bikers, hemis and attack helicopters, Coke's Full Throttle ad is so over the top...and so good...that we bet even those complaining truck drivers will be choking on their Bud's, laughing and the over-blown hilarity of it all.

While we're sure there's some deep inner meaning to the winged woman in white bending over the hood of this red car counting, we're too distracted imagining ourselves sitting in the driver's seat to bother figuring it out. Maybe Flirt vodka has some sort of stamina-building ingredient and our winged one is keeping score. Whatever. Back to the Super Bowl.

Hart+Larson, that agency that tried to hire Neil French has launched a weird site that promises to entertain by allowing us to view a certain Andrea as she watches the Super Bowl and view Super Bowl commercial ratings from the "Hart+Larson patented rating system." Whatever.
To help promote its microwavable soup bowls, Progresso has launched Home Sweet Cube, an episodic collection of interconnected videos that form a soap opera of sorts.
