2008 Super Bowl Commercials: My Five Favorites


The commercials that aired during this year's Super Bowl were pretty hit-or-miss, but the ones that "hit" really made me laugh or, in the case of the Wall-E spot, made me grow a little misty-eyed. After the jump, check out my five favorite Super Bowl spots — from talking stains to talking babies — and tell me which ones you liked as well. To check them out,

.

Bud Light: Ability to Breathe Fire

I have rarely been a fan of Bud Light commercials in the past, but some of their Super Bowl spots this year were pretty funny. I laughed out loud when I first saw this guy sneeze fire, which is just a hilarious concept.

Etrade: Bobo the Clown

Yeah, talking babies, when done poorly, are creepy and just wrong. Something about this little guy's adultish nuances and average Joe chatter just cracks me up, though. And this Bobo the Clown spot is infinitely funnier than the other E-Trade baby one in which he ends up puking. That's just gross.

Coca-Cola: Coke Floats

Get it? "Coke floats"? I love these silly, whimsical Coca-Cola ads. Not only is this a funny concept, but it's beautifully made. Also, Charlie Brown wins! It's so satisfying.

Tide: Talking Stain

Not only does a shirt stain talk in this Tide commercial, it shrieks in another language. Awesome. Also, the stain babble could be your new ringtone, which is just wonderfully absurd.

Wall-E Trailer

OK, first off, this trailer has Toy Story's Woody and Buzz Lightyear debating the virtues of Wall-E ("I hear he even goes to infinity." "But not beyond.") while tucking into a gigantic bowl of popcorn. Then there's Wall-E himself, making friends with a vacuum cleaner, accidentally sucking up a cricket, and then making a mess trying to save his little buddy. What's that? Crying? Me? No, no, it's just onions. Onions. Right.

Superbowl Commercial For the Deaf Community! Amid the wall-to-wall sound during next Sunday's Super Bowl, one commercial from PepsiCo could send some viewers grabbing for their remotes to check whether they'd accidentally hit the mute button. The pre-game advertisement features a joke that originates from the deaf community and will play out on screen over 60 seconds of total silence,a veritable eternity when it comes to the noisiness of Super Bowl ads. Check out this behind the scenes video!

Wall-E was cute, but I couldn't help thinking "Number 5 is ALIVE!" the entire time. Looks a lot like that short circuit robot.

Out of this 5, My fave is definitely the 'coke' one. But I think Stewie should've won, he is way sneakier than the other 2...lol.

The first E-Trade baby commercial creeped me out, but I liked the clown one. "Yeah, I totally underestimated the creepiness factor." lol..

Most of the ads were underwhelming, but the Bobo the Clown spot did make me smile, unlike the other ad where the kid throws up. Gross.

The Richard Simmons one had me howling, it was so funny. I also loved the Charlie Brown one though.

The Bridgestone one (screaming animals?) was one of my favorites, as was the talking stain one. And yes, finally, Charlie Brown wins out. It's about time. Good grief. :)

I loved the Alice Cooper/Richard Simmons one. But the one for the same tire company before with the screaming animals was the BEST! I did really enjoy the Coke float where Charlie Brown wins, and the Clydesdale Rocky one :)

I thought the Bridgestone tire ones were both funny...the ones with the screaming animals and the one with Alice Cooper/Richard Simmons.

I loved that budweiser commercial and the tide stain one. I too really enjoyed the Ephraim Salaam & Chester Pitts commercial for the NFL. I was trying to explain it to my husband but it got lost in translation. Oh well.

Justin Timberlake's ad was hilarious! I loved all the cameos.

Coke floats battle, the Timberlake Pepsi, and the talking stain were the most popular among our crowd. Didn't like the What Is Love bobbing head commercial, but the Chris Kattan cameo was great. Could have done without the Thriller video; you can't top Filipino prisoners doing it.
