Super Bowl Commercials

Post by Bobbert » Sat Feb 12, 2022 1:16 pm

I was watching a TV story about the Super Bowl commercials.

One of the ads shows an actress in a staring contest with a Barbie doll.

I started wondering, where do you draw the line between healthy escapism and inane idiocy?

The Barbie add was actually a Rocket Mortgage commercial featuring Anna Kendrick. I thought it was one of the better ads of the night.

My favorite ad was the Roman Colosseum tailgating for avocados. :lol Romans and barbarians -- very clever! One wonders why this scenario wasn't dreamt up before.

Nothing else left much of an impression on me. Too much hyperkinetic animation and CGI all around, it was a turn-off.
