Not so much the one with Richard Simmons, but I agree with your other choices.

Oh I loved the screaming squirrel, the Fed-Ex pigeon one and really liked the one with all the dancing lizards.

I especially liked the way The Giants won the game though. ;)

Neither did I. Never had any interest in watching football. Or any sport for that matter, really.

while football for me is just a glorified game of grabass. its always fun to watch the ads:

p.s. get ready to get annoyed by e-trades dumbass commercial that plays before each AD. its amazing how you are expected to watch an ad before seeing an ad...

yeah, me neither. Not sure why I have to keep explaining to people that it doesn't make me a homosexual. Not sure why everyone is so jazzed about a bunch of over paid monkeys tossing a piece of leather around and then seeing them slap each other on the butt. Yeah, and I'm the gay one?

The Pepsi JT ad had some pretty solid compositing.

FedEx pigeons rocked.

FedEx was probably one of my favorites. I saw the ad on the msnbc website. I did not watch the actual game either.

Wait a minute .. did you say Superb*wl ? Oh man ... did you get special written concent from the NFL and their pack of vicious lawyers to type that into a forum post? Better look out -they'll get you for that! You'd better change the post title to "Big Game" or "Super Sunday" before you start getting phone calls and wire taps....

Wall*E and Iron Man.

I thought the Wall*E was underwhelming animation-by-committee. I love the Wall*E trailers and artwork so far, not so sure about the tie-in with Buzz and Woody on the couch.

I get it there were watching the game... but it seemed like a bit of a stretch in the concept department.

Still looking forward to the movie though.

Great game! Perfect for a peripheral football fan. It was the most watched match of all time for a reason.

I liked the macy's day blimps sparring over the Coke.

For that Richard Simmons car commercial: I know the guy stepped on the gas but if they had committed to the gag and had him run over Richard Simmons I think it would have been THE watercooler commercial.

Come on! Create some controversy! Even if they had cut to black at the last second.

Yes, it was a great game. I'm no big sports fan, but I do appreciate a high stakes game like that, especially when it's so close and played so well by both teams.
Especially considering the Giants came from behind on a Wild Card, got into the Super Bowl and then beat the much-favored Patriots and denied them their perfect finale for their perfect season. They would have been only the second team ever to do that, since The Miami Dolphins in 1972.

Aside from that, yeah, I was also rooting for Richard Simmons to get run over. ;) If I'd have been directing that, it would have faded to deep red, not black. SPLAT! :devil:
