Super Bowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV Commercials: The Good, The Bad and the Bootyful

At a record $3 million for 30 seconds, seemed like most of the Super Bowl XLV ads were cars and movies and Fox promos. As I watched a run-of-the-mill On The Border commercial, I had to wonder if those folks really see $3 million in increased chips 'n hot sauce 'n margaritas.

Doubtful.

Yesterday we were treated to the cliched crap featuring talking babies, animals, the obligatory guy getting hit in the nuts and everything from Joan Rivers to Kim Kardashian to an Old West roughneck singing Elton John.

One man's review ...
