Maybe that was the (ill-advised) point.

I thought the Motorola Xoom ad was the most interesting ... a lot of money for a little social commentary.

Also liked the Kim Kardashian and Bud Light product placement commercials.

My favorite was the Chevy one spoofing Lassie...really got a kick out of that one.

{Rant Begin}
Hated both with Eminem. The first one just wasn't funny at all. The second was such an insult to Detroit. I got beef with Eminem anyways, since he is a transplant and grew up in Taylor, but he totally sold out. How anyone could support GM like that, considering they grew up there, is downright stupid. I hope they paid you well Eminem, since you seem to not give a shit for anything other than money. {Rant Over}

Didn't see them all but my favorites were the VW-Darth Vader and the one where the guy running around after hitting 'Reply All.' Also liked the one that had all the classic tv clips. The career builder one was good too - you really never can go wrong with monkeys in a commercial.

I'm pretty surprised more of a stink hasn't been made about the Groupon commercial. As someone who usually has no problem with "tasteless", I was pretty dumbfounded by it myself.

This was posted by Rich in the House thread and aired yesterday, but I thought this was worth posting here too.

The House/Mean Joe Green spoof was pure gold.

And while I don't like his music, I do respect Em for standing up for his home state/town. He hasn't bailed for L.A. or Florida, has he? Nope.

Also liked the Mercedes commercial with all the classic Benz models.

The Groupon commercial was such shocking bad taste, I wouldn't be surprised if it hurts their business. And they deserve it.

I just liked that Brisk went back to doing claymation commercials...I had a guess it was for Brisk after the first few seconds, with the black and white and all that...weird to have Eminem, but good to have the style back.

Hasn't that spot been airing for at least the last couple months, though?

All I can say is that kid in the VW Passat commercial did one hell of an acting job conveying perfect emotions without dialogue and behind a mask. I saw where he has a congenital heart defect.

Chrysler, not GM. Ad had to cost more than $12 million, it was quite long at two minutes. I liked the Imported from Detroit' line, would have been better without Eminem and a minute shorter.

Favorites were Doritos pug and Darth VW. There were a few other good ones. Also liked Doritos adam and eve.

Another one people told me they liked was the Bridgestone beaver. MIssed that one.

Ad prices were $3 million/30 seconds.

Possibly, it was the first time I had seen it, so I thought it was a SuperBowl ad.

FWIW, my favorite ad of the night was the Chevy ad on Glee. And I'm a loyal Ford driver.

And he has never seen a Star Wars movie because they're "too scary."

Utah native wins $1 million for Super Bowl ad

The Salt Lake Tribune
First published Feb 07 2011 07:15PM

Two Doritos commercials created by people with Utah ties made it onto the Super Bowl telecast Sunday, and one won a million dollars.

“Pug Attack” was created by J.R. Burningham, who graduated from Alta High and attended the University of Utah but has lived in California for years. The ad was one of the tops on the USA Today Super Bowl Ad Meter. And in doing so, he added $1 million to the $25,000 he won for finishing in the top five of Doritos’ annual Crash the Super Bowl amateur-commercial competition.

The ad featured a guy taunting a pug with Doritos; the dog leaped at a glass door between them and knocked it on top of his tormentor.

The five finalists didn’t know if their commercials would be among the three Doritos ads that would air during the Super Bowl. Tyler Dixon’s spot, “The Best Part,” was telecast early in the game.

“I was sort of overwhelmed,” Dixon said. “I was just kind of speechless.”

And although the 35-year-old BYU graduate who lives in Lehi didn’t add to the $25,000 he’d already won, Dixon said he might be winning again.

“Our ad has had a really positive response from the advertising community,” he said. “I’ve actually had some job offers already.”

Dixon’s spot featured a guy so enamored with the taste of Doritos that he licked a co-worker’s fingers, then ripped the pants off another co-worker after that guy had wiped his Doritos-crusted hands on them.
