Best Super Bowl Commercials

In recent years, the quality of the Super Bowl commercials has kind of gone down.  This year, a great swing up.

My favorite was the Snickers ad with Betty White playing football.  I also liked the Bud Light one with the scientists partying down thinking an asteroid was going to destroy the Earth.  The Casual Friday ad for CareerBuilder was also funny.

Although, Bud Light overdid it.  They had several commercials, and only one really deviated from the set pattern, the house made of Bud Light.  All the others followed a familiar path of disaster, but we found beer, so let's live it up.  The scientist one was funny, but had it run later after, say, the riff on Lost, I probably wouldn't have laughed as much.

Nice try, Budweiser.  I KNOW the background music in your commercial was the main theme from the movie Stripes.  It's one of my favorite movies, and is a great piece of music.  Not saying there's anything wrong with it, just that I was less interested in the commercial because I was remembering the source.

Hmmm....I know what movie I want to watch while eating dinner tonight.....
