Beer Institute Super Bowl Ad Solves World's Problems

cheers_beer.jpg

The Beer Institute ran a Super Bowl ad that showed people around the world saying "cheers" or some such equal salute in different languages and locations around the world. It's an interesting strategy and one that harken s Warren Beatty's statement in in the movie, Bulworth, when he said, "If we all fucked each other, we'd eventually end up the same color," in that if everyone in the world just got together and had a few beers with each other there'd be none of the ridiculous political problems we face today. See the ad on the Beer Institute's site.

Emerald Nuts Super Bowl Ad Stupid

emerald_nuts_super_bowl.jpg

OK, the Emerald Nuts Super Bowl ad was just stupid. There's not much more to say about it. Unless, of course, you have a thing for druids and Asians with machetes. If you simply have to see it, you can see it here.

Toyota Tacoma Super Bowl Commercial Less Than Honest

Toyota ran a time-lapsed commerical for its Tacoma during the Super Bowl in which the truck is parked on a rocky beach and subjected to the rising tide and heavy waves that smash it against the rocks. Of course, when the tide goes out, the truck is undamaged even though it was toss all over the place during high tide. That would explain the disclaimer at the bottom which stated this was a dramatization. More like a lie.

Budweiser Clydsdales Bring Out the Baby

clydesdales.jpg

As usual, the Budweiser Clydesdale spot in this year's Super Bowl was emotional, showing a small Clydesdales doing his best to pull the Bud wagon, eager to become one of the famed older Clydesdales. In a spot called "Clydesdale American Dream," the little guy succeeds but has a bit of help from his friends. Need a Kleenex? Remember, these are the horses that bowed to the New York city skyline post-911. See the spot here.

Everyone's been stuck in that frustrating situation on a plane when you're sitting in a window seat in a row of three seats and you just really, really have to go to the bathroom except the passengers next to you are sleeping making a graceful exit to the aisles a tryting task. That's the set up for Ameriquest's second Super Bowl ad. The poor woman trying to make it to the bathroom ends up in a rather embarrassing position once a bit of turbulence hits causing the lights to go on and revealing to the rest of the passengers her not so normal seating position. See the spot here.

Cadillac Escalade Makes Dramatic Entry

As fashionistas eagerly anticipate the latest fashions on the runway in this Cadillac Super Bowl "Chrome Couture" commercial, this runway's a bit different. It's all wet and dark and mysterious with models rising out its glistening ooze. But the finale is what grabs everyone's attention. Rising slowly from the liquid is the new Cadillac Escalade. A very dramatic entrance indeed. See the spot here.

She's Wide Open!

mich_touch_football.jpg

You know, it's just not right when a hot girl says to a hot guy in a touch football game, "Throw it to me. I'm gonna be wide open." Sorry, you witty creative. We know what you were thinking when you wrote that line and we know you laughed about it over and over and wondered if you'd get it past the client. Apparently, you did. And you know what? It was funny. Oh, was it for Bud Light? Sorry, we were, once again, distracted. Oh wait. It was Michelob. See the spot here.

Ameriquest Kills Its Patient

frame_doctor.jpg

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.
