So.... this is what everyone will be talking about tomorrow (once they get past Giants winning). What ads did you like or hate?

Here are all of them: http://www.hulu.com/adzone/featured/wat ... ide-teaser

I will vote for Dannon as one of my favorite ones (though cheesy.... well, it is a yougurt, which is a kind of a cheese anyway)

Coke was kind of flat - just average.

And the worst I think was the GE/Bud ad. I did not get that one.

I have to say I missed a number of ads (while watching after 2 kids), including the VW barking commercial which now having watched the ones I missed, I have to say is definitely one of my top 2.

the fact that those of us who were watching the game online could not see the ads in real time, had watch endlessly looped crappy digital ads during out commercial breaks, and had the "opportunity" to watch the creative ads from the main TV broadcast DURING the actual game, was not a special moment in digital broadcasting. yes, a legal livestream of the superbowl is a good thing. no, breaking ground there does not give you leeway to completely screw up the experience of game + ads. this is a total package experience. get it right. inexcusable.

I loved the etrade with the baby speed dating... so cute!

also the VW fat dog... love that dog

last... all of the Adriana Lima ads... she is stunning and although I am not into girls she always captivates my attention

I thought that Chrysler's "It's half time" commercial was pretty solid.

The worst one is hands down the Michigan "Debbie Spent It Now" ad.
