It's Why I Hit The Wine.....Hard

Another Super Bowl come and gone and while the game on the field was exciting (although Baltimore had no business letting San Francisco back in that game!) - it's time for me to render my verdict on the commercials.

Yeah, they were terrible.  I mean, I always expect GoDaddy to be horrendous, but it was slim pickins' this year and the only two ads I liked got blown through in the same commercial break!

My favorite was probably the Audi high school prom commercial since it relies heavily on a universal truth: Every Dorky High School Kid Dreams Of Doing This.  My only quibbles?  The kid isn't dorky enough (seriously, he needs to look like he belongs on the chess club) and the girl needed to show up at his house afterward.  Either way, this is a romance novel flashback scene in a high school reunion story if ever I saw one. Authors, are you taking notes?

 

And in second place? M&M's. Because, I can totally relate to being one of these girls. You know, just not as hot. But my Mom thinks I'm special and she says I have a great personality....

Didn't watch the game or the ads, obviously, but I followed a link from Dear Author and got to see the one with the baby Clydesdale. That one, I like--who cares what's it for? Hot guy, horse, I'm all in.

(Yes, I'm that shallow, why do you ask?)

I liked a few:
The princess dress up Doritos
The guy training the clydesdale
and the kid asking where babies come from

Tracy: I missed the Clydesdale one (all that wine must have meant I was taking a bathroom break!) - and watched it online this morning. That was a good one too....
