Yes, I did watch the Super Bowl this year. I don’t really know much about football but my boyfriend’s from Baltimore so I cheered for Baltimore during tonight’s game and I made sure to wear my favorite purple bra and thong. (Of course, I was wearing more clothes than just those two items but apparently, the important thing was that I was wearing at least a little purple.) However, I have to admit that I was mainly watching the game for the commercials!
Super Bowl commercials have become something of an American tradition, beyond the fact that most of them tend to be overproduced and kinda sucky. But every year, after the game has been played, people spends weeks debating which commercial was the best.
With that in mind, here are my 6 favorite commercials of Super Bowl XLVII.
6) Samsung Mobile USA — The Next Big Thing
It goes on a little long but I still liked it.
5) E-Trade — Baby Gone Wild
I don’t care what anybody says, I like the E-Trade Baby.
4) Mercedes-Benz — Willem DaFoe is Satan.
It’s really not that much of a shock.
3) M&Ms — I Would Do Anything For Love
I love how upset the M&Ms get over the prospect of being eaten. They’ve got a point, to be honest.
2) Budweiser — “Brotherhood”
This commercial made me cry.
1) Calvin Klein — “Concept”
You probably already knew this was going to be number one. This commercial was the perfect antidote to years of creepy GoDaddy commercials.
