Super Bowl Ad Showdown

It's been a while, huh?  Happy 2015!

Sorry I haven't blogged in ages.  I've been busy practicing urban bee-keeping.

Who am I kidding?  I can't even keep a plant alive.  (No, seriously, my aunt gave me a ficus a few weeks ago and already it's on death's door.)

What I've really been busy doing is working.  And watching TV.  And working.

Well, as luck would have it, the Super Bowl is where my love of work and TV collide.  I guess the game was exciting, but as always, I'm in it for the commercials.  And the snacks.

Most brands release their commercials in advance, so on the Friday before the game, we gathered with a great bunch of teenage girls around a Snackadium and asked them to watch a few ads for the way women were depicted in them.  But little did we know this would be the year of the Super Sentimental Bowl.  Paying for hamburgers with hugs?  Check.  Crying dads in cars?  Check.  Cat's in the Cradle?  Check.  Puppies?  Of course!

I didn't know whether to throw a flag or a hankie.  None of those made my list.

Here are my faves from SB49:

Funniest Commercial: "Very Brady" by Snickers

Sexiest Commercial: "Little Blue Pill" by Fiat

Best Use of Celebrities: "Invisible Mindy" by Nationwide

Best Commercial I've Seen Before: "#LikeaGirl" by Always

 Best Commercial That Never Aired: "Angels Play Football" by Victoria's Secret

Most Depressing Commercial Ever In the History of Advertising: "Make Safe Happen" by Nationwide

Best Video of Teens Reviewing Commercials (because I made it)

Agree?  Disagree?  Are you still reading?  Tell me all about it below...
