Watch all the 2011 Superbowl commercials here

7 Feb

Watch all the 2011 Superbowl commercials here.

People wait all year to see what all the big ad agencies will come up with to promote their cars, beers, tech companies and brands.  There are always some greats and some groaners that tried too hard.  Here are my favourites.

  • Eminem – Chrysler Imported from Detroit
  • Mini Cooper – Cram it in the Boot – Mini Countryman
  • Salesforce.com Chatter – Can’t stand the Black Eyed Peas but got to give it up to Chatter for taking out ads on the Superbowl. Super nerdy.
  • Snickers tried to re-do their now famous Betty White commercial but I don’t know if it worked so well with whats-his-name comedian and loud mouth Rosanne Barr.  She might be able to swing this into a comeback like Betty White but ….

Side notes – GoDaddy it might be time to let go of the ‘almost racy half-naked chicks’ thing. It’s not original and it’s not cool anymore. You scored some points years ago by ‘pushing boundaries’ but this campaign is getting played out.

Eminem was in the Chrysler commercial and the Brisk Iced Tea commercial. I wonder how much Em pulled down this Superbowl?
