for me, it's certainly the commercials

Husband is a big football fan, and (as you probably know by now) I like witty advertisements, so Super Bowl Sunday is the bees knees in our book.

However, we spent the first three quarters at a party, where we saw most of the game but everyone talked and re-filled appetizer plates and wine glasses during the commercials. Ah me, as Julia Child would say. Or, carry on, as Kurt Vonnegut might say.

Since we came home for the 4th quarter, I did see a few. Of those, this was my favorite:

And Husband managed to catch this preview early on in the game, and he is counting down the days till this comes to theaters in May:

Any favorite Super Bowl commercials?

  1. That commercial was great!
    Unfortunately here we were only able to watch the game; something about licensing made it so the Austrian channel wasn't aloud to play the American ads.
    So thank you for sharing!
    The movie looks great.
    We are personally looking forward to The Road with Viggo Mortensen.

  3. I absolutely loved the game. My favorite commercial is the Betty White Snickers one. What a woman she is!

  4. yah - I hafta agree w/ you here about the commercials being the best part. Perhaps that's bc I don't really know squat about football ... & that's about all I care to know. I'm just not a big sports fan....unless of course my kids are playing :)

  5. me neither! I get "first downs" explained to me each and every football season. The definition leaves my brain completely once spring arrives!

  8. Dang, Girl!!! I am SO thrilled that you passed on that preview!!!! I hadn't heard of that movie, and now I'm waiting with bated breath!!! Looks FANTASTIC and I LOVE Cate Blanchett! Anything with her in it HAS to be fabulous!

    Didn't watch the game myself, but my fav commercial that I saw on line last night was the Doritos one, where the dog puts the bark collar on the mean guy and steals his chips.....Hee hee hee....Gotta pull for the pooch! ; )

  9. Betty White, of course. Oh, and I like the pony/cow....horse/steer...... I was hooking quietly at home with pleasure, as Scooter was at a party.... I was in heaven....

  10. Am I one of the few people who DIDN'T watch the Super Bowl?? I think so.

    I am looking forward to the Robin Hood movie. I'll admit that I went through a whole Robin Hood fixation when I was growing up.

    Now, about that green commercial. FUNNY. Loved it and it is SO VERY MARIN.
