Super Bowl 2012 Commercials

I have to say that this year’s commercials did not hold up their end of the awesome Super Bowl commercial bargain. There were a few good ones, but overall it was a slightly disappointing turn out for 2012. Clint Eastwood depressed the hell out of me and Pepsi was slightly disappointing, though Flav-a-Flav added some flavor. I expected a really rad Avengers commercial and did not get it. Coca Cola bears are always sweet, and the fumbling play commercial was cute. NBC The Voice did a good job with this little play on Kill Bill and incorporating the Wilhelm scream. Love Betty White. Chevy Sonic used a little clip from OK Go’s new video. You can see it here, if you haven’t seen it yet. You really should watch it, it’s rad.

Here are a few that I thought were pretty good. You have to go through them all to find out which one is my favorite. Have a favorite of your own? Leave me a comment, so I can see which ones you loved the best.

Chevy’s Apocalypse ad with a throwback to Zombieland. Love that the guy is eating the Twinkies!

Naked M&M- When did the girl M&M become a brown M&M? Hasn’t she always been Green? Either way, love this one.
Kia Optima Sandman
No big shocker that this 80s baby loved the Met Life commercial.
CRV with Ferris Matthew Broderick. They even added the nod to the ending credits of the movie. 

Not sure I love the VW Star Wars commercial this year. It’s like they wanted to go a different way, but had to squish Star Wars in, so they did this Cantina scene. It’s a bit awkward.
So who made the best commercials of the night?? I have to give props to Doritos. They did not disappoint and had two of the funniest commercials in the lineup; Slingshot baby and my favorite “Man’s Best Friend” or better known as Great Dane cat killer.
