Guys usually watch the Superbowl for the actual football game (or in some cases *ahem, my dad* as an excuse to shove as much pizza and wings they can get down their throats). As a sports-crazy girl (go Duke basketball!) I also watch it for the action, but I can understand if some non-sporty people don’t feel as enthusiastic about a bunch of big, padded guys running into each other and chasing after a little ball. At least, that’s how my mom puts it.
But she’s found an entertaining reason to join our whole family during this epic February event: the commercials. This year, NBC Superbowl commercials will cost companies $3 MILLION dollars for 30 seconds of air time! That’s equal to $100,000 for 1 second. Aren’t we in a recession?
Anyway, to celebrate the fact that our economy is in shambles but we still have enough money for ads with talking frogs and cowboys chasing cats, here are my favorite 5 Superbowl commercials of all time:
5) James Carville and Bill Frist Fall In Love Over Coke. With all the political hype going on right now, we hope the Republicans and Democrats will unite like these two do over a can of Coke.
4) EDS Cowboys Herding Cats. What could be better than kitties and cowboys?
3) Mean Joe Green and Coke. Probably the most effective commercial of all time. Maybe Coke can bring peace to the Middle East?
2) Apple 1984. The one that started it all. And because I love my mac ^_^
1) Terry Tate and Reebok. Terry Tate tackling “Office Space” workers. ‘Nuff said.
What’s YOUR favorite Superbowl commercial ever?
