I'm tired of businesses trying to tell me how to think.
Just stick to funny, please.

Oh, and every "cause" doesn't need a sappy anthem.

Commercials are unwatchable now. All get muted.

I laughed at a few of them.

But now, 12 hours later, don't ask me which ones or what they were selling because I don't remember.

My brain has learned to let advertising go in one ear and out the other. So the companies that are spending millions of $$$ to get me to buy their crap are just wasting their $$$.

I laughed at the two Louisiana boys dancing with each other.

The Australia Chamber of Commerce or whatever they are was kind of clever, disguising the commercial as a Crocodile Dundee movie upcoming movie promo. But it was a tad overdone.

We learned advertising is getting less creative.

Wait, didn’t we already learn that?

Not a Super Bowl commercial but one a I saw a few times last week. For insurance (I think) and getting good quotes. The start is with bad quotes (pretty lame & stupid IMO) but I LOVED this one:

"I literally misuse that word a billion times a day..."

Cracked me up...that's all I got...

I watched the entire Super Bowl, did not pay any attention to commercials, and missed the halftime enormoganza. It was an excellent game.

I have a hard time believing that they will sell enough additional M&Ms to pay for that $5million spot.

I mean who runs out to the Kwik-E-Mart for M&Ms just because they watch that?

I was at a Super Bowl party and when commercials came we talked about other things, so I missed most especially the audio. I did notice Budweiser makes cans of pure water for disaster relief.

I was surprised how funny my 14 yr old daughter found the Tide ads. Then I learned that guy is one of the stars of "Strangers Things." She loves that show.
I liked the Lindsey Vonn bio ad as a prelude to the Olympics (to the tune of 'Girl on fire.") Tastefully done. That girl has done the work!

(JT halftime show: big 'meh.' Bruno Mars does it better. JT needs a new jam.)

Seemed like there were many violent/creepy commercials.

For one, the dilly-dilly thing seemed to promote a war over Bud Light.

I'm pleased to report that I didn't see a single second of the super bowl or the commercials.
