A lot of people say they only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. And while us die-hard football fans who like to watch the game for the, you know, game, would very much like to beat those people with a sack full of belt buckles, they do have a point. Super Bowl ads are part of the whole shebang. Problem is, they've been pretty lame lately.
Look! Danica Patrick is fighting a girl with giant breasts! Now go build your own website dammit!
Look! That guy got hit in the crotch with a snow globe! People getting hit in the crotch is comedy gold, you see. What was that an ad for?
Look! That Clydesdale just fetched a tree trunk to out do a dog because horses are better than dogs!! Haha you suck, dogs!! Wait. Whaaa?
Meh, you get the point.
Anyway, Anheuser-Busch is saying no mas! to lame un-funny, un-original Super Bowl ads this year:
But most of the likely spots tend toward the outlandish: Townspeople form a human bridge when the real one is out to assure safe delivery of Budweiser. In another, men talking on the phone in Auto-Tune — a pop-music effect that can make voices sound robotic — are excited they have Bud Light to "make the party right." And there's the requisite TV reference: People stranded on an island happily drink Bud Light in a nod to hit show "Lost."
Guess we'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out on February 7. Odds are there will be a few chuckles here and there that'll have us all talking at the water cooler on Monday. And others that probably won't garner any talk at all.
