Coca-Cola Brings Die-Hard Politicians Back to Sandbox Basics

coca-cola_jinx.jpg

"Jinx" by Coca-Cola sparked a political flare war in our Adrants Super Bowl chat room. In it, James Carville and Bill Frist set aside their differences over a personal jinx (except Carville has to buy Frist a Coke, not a slushee).

Cute. Why can't more things in life be solved this way?



Vicky's Secret Super Bowl Ad Looks Suspiciously Like Its Preview

victorias_secret_sb2008.jpg

Really, we don't know what we were expecting. But we sure hoped it would be more than what Victoria's Secret gave us.

What a waste of Adriana Lima's come-hither talents. Check out the preview, which is about as unimaginative as the ad itself, which just wastes more time.

Amp Juices Groovin' Auto Mechanic's Nipples to Start Stalled Vehicle

amp-fatman.jpg

We waited...and waited...and waited.....and it finally arrived. Yes, the Amp commercial. Late in the fourth quarter. For a drink that's all about getting you jacked up, this commercial features a chubby auto mechanic type who comes to the aid of a woman in a stalled car. He has all the necessary equipment including a tricked out tow truck, a sound systen, and, yes, nipples to supply the juice to get her car going again. Where does he get the juice? From his Amp drink of course. How humorously logical. We like.

Bud Light Refreshes the Palate ... and the Loins

will-for-ab.jpg

If you take Will Ferrell's word for it, that is.

This spot, where Will Ferrell screws up an uncountable number of Bud Light ad takes with Freudian slips, is probably our favorite Bud Light ad thus far. It actually made us wonder how much sweat goes into every bottle.

Bud Light. Suck one. Lawl.



Hey, a Car Ad. For Who? Beats Us. (We Wish.)

hyundaigenesis.jpg

We can't believe Hyundai waffled over the inclusion of its ads in the Super Bowl this year, a decision (or lack of it) that build unmerited hype for what we thought to be a really boring brand.

Well, that hasn't changed. This Genesis ad was a waste of time and a waste of $2.7 mill or whatever they ended up paying for it. If they were hoping to be confused for the average Lexus, or the average anything-else, good job, Hyundai.

Baby Pukes, We Forget What Etrade Advertises

etrade_puking_baby.jpg

We all know sticking a baby in a commercial usually guarantees it to be a success so we figure this Etrade ad with a talking baby would follow that trend...until, of course, the baby puked. Ew. Gross. And how much can you digitally manipulate a baby before it's really anything but a baby. And, what was it again Etrade was trying to advertise? We still can't get over that baby puke! See the commercial here along with another.

OK, so they are kind of funny but still.

Hey ... Beer Can Make Us Fly?

More slapstick Bud Light crap for Super Bowl 2008. Want the ability to fly? Guess what beer can help you out. Anheuser-Busch will not be held liable for jet- or sun-related accidents.

Carmen Says 'Whoa,' We Say 'Huh?'

caremen_icebreakers1.jpg

We suppose there's a legion of Carmen Elektra lovers out there but wasn't she popular like ten years ago? And what's up with that secret "whoa" word in this commercial? Yea we get that the security guards are reacting when she says the word but where's the set up? Where's the reason for them reacting the way they do? We don't get it. But, hey, she's still nice to look at so it can't be all bad.

Vacuum Cleaner Battles Sadistic Robot for 'Wall-E'

walle.jpg

We're not sure what Pixar's Wall-E is about, but the ad includes a Toy Story cameo and the murder of a vacuum cleaner by a cute robot -- a species that, by now, we're bored with.

Straight to DVD for this one.

BudLight Cavemen Disappoints

budlight-wheel.jpg

OK, so we finally get to see those cavemen do their thing as they struggle to deliver Bud Light to the party which becomes easier when another cave dude invents the wheel. We hate subtitles. We didn't like the ad. We did, however, very much like the Bud Light Fire ad. Now that was funny.
