Maybe I am over critical because I majored in advertising and work in the industry, but is it me or was every commercial either for a car company or a preview of a movie that I had zero interest in seeing? Now, some of the car commercials were excellent - VW: Darth Vader and Audi: Release the Hounds ads were both very clever. But did I really need to see car ads that I have had to endure for weeks on end? When I think Super Bowl, I think brand new, over-the-top, humorous ads.
A few other good ones (but not as good as in the years past) were Bud Light: Kitchen Remodel, Doritos: Pug Attack, Snickers: Roseanne Barr, Best Buy: Ozzy and Bieber, and NFL: Favorite Fans. (You can watch all Super Bowl XLV ads here.)
This year I give the mediocre ad award to CarMax. Their ads were annoying and felt forced. So take this award with price you wannabe dealership - you clearly can't play with the bigwigs.

- Fergie looks like a man, or as the fiance commented, "she looks like that manly chick from Third Rock From the Sun" - but I think she looks more like Kirsty Alley.
- Why didn't Usher just do the whole show and have a cameo by The Black Eyed Peas?
- I couldn't imagine signing up to wear a space outfit that glowed. I mean, really!?!
- I really didn't know who the other two members of The Black Eyed were until last night (I knew Fergie and Will.I.Am), and honestly, they just looked out of place.
