Last night's was arguably one of the best Super Bowls in a long time. To quote my highly-caffeinated friend Chase Jones, who's a better sports commentator than I'll ever be:
UNDOUBTEDLY THE MOST ASTONISHING UPSET VICTORY IN THE WORLDS GREATEST GAME ON THE WORLDS GREATEST STAGE IN HISTORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!That said, the crop of ads this year was completely disappointing (except for CareerBuilder's, which always grabbed the room). If you missed them - or just want to relive the dumb - they're all online, organized by quarter, on the Super Bowl Ads MySpace Page. It seems that lately, not just with the Super Bowl but across the board, media has overtaken creative as the cool kid on the advertising block. If so, that's a problem. Was this year's sad lot reflective of changes in the ad industry, or was this just a bad year?
