Best Super Bowl Commercial

I know I’m getting somewhat of a late start on the whole ‘best commercial’ discussion, but I still wanted to get it out there.

Overall, I thought the Super Bowl commercials were extremely weak. Maybe its the state of the economy? Maybe people are out of ideas? I’m not sure.

Pepsi had a total of three commercials, two of which we’re (in my opinion) phenomenal. The first Pepsi slot was the best, the best for Pepsi and the best commercial all night. The commercial included a split screen of two completely different generations, symbolized in the beginning by Bob Dylan and Will.I.Am (from the Black Eyed Peas). The ad then goes on to show the transition that our country has taken through the years in terms of fashion, style, music, dance, politics, etc. All the while, Pepsi stays the same. What made the commercial so unique was that it was effective, lasting, and surprisingly great despite the lack of raw humor that we typically see in Super Bowl ads.

Others that busted into my top three were Pepsi Maxx (“I’m Good”) and Coke Zero (“Mean Joe Green Reenactment”). Pepsi Maxx’s “I’m Good” commercial was the typical Super Bowl ad, funny and literal. The Coke Zero commercial received mixed reviews because many believe that the original Coke commercial from 1980 involving Mean Joe Green and the cute kid should never be altered. I thought Troy Polomalu did a pretty good job and the directors decided to throw a little comedy in there as well.

All in all dissapointed with the Super Bowl ads but there’s no doubt that Pepsi took the cake.
