Thoughts on Super Bowl commercials

Posted Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at 9:14 AM

I know what I thought about the all-important Super Bowl commercials. The three really amazing commercials weren't funny, but instead featured a tribute to farmers, those serving this country and a relationship between a trainer and his Clydesdale.

There were some laughs. Doritos got it done twice with a chip hungry goat and men dressed as princesses. Dejon Sanders was great. The old folks sneaking out of the home for a night of partying on the town. There were some good laughs.

And then we got the gross out. If not the worst commercial ever made, at least the worst of the Super Bowl from the folks at Go Daddy. Way inappropriate for an international event watched by families everywhere. I know commercials are supposed to make an imprint on your brain. Well every time I think of Go Daddy from here on out, I'm not going to think of domain names -- I'm going to gag and become ill. Not sure that was the response they were going for!

Honestly, I found the Jeep commercial a bit patronizing. I missed the Dodge one, but I did enjoy the Clydesdale one.

I liked the Hyundai one witht he dog slobber, myself. I thought the farmer one was a bit over-done. I agree that the Go-daddy one was gross, but the Calvin Klein one was way past the line of decency.

The Go Daddy add was just wrong.
