    Don't know if it was just the overall lackluster crop, or the fact that half of the higher end ads were teased or completely leaked before the Game, but this was the worst Superbowl in recent memory as far as commercials go. Too much bad cgi and weak ideas. Disagree? Post your faves here and maybe you can change my mind.

    Simple and silly but I was partial to the M&M's commercial.

    This is the only one I felt was worth watching



    Most I kept saying "they spent how much for a spot on the superbowl and could only come up with this?"

    Darth Vader ad kid, facing heart surgery, finds hope in the Force | Blastr

    You remember that Volkswagen ad from a few years back, with the adorable kid in the Darth Vader costume running around his house trying to use the Force on stuff? It seems that life has dealt him a pretty rough hand, but he's handling it with a strength that'd make any Jedi proud.

    Max Page is now 7 years old, and he's spent the year since the Volkswagen ad broke during the Super Bowl helping the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles raise money for kids with heart conditions. It's a cause close to his heart, literally, because he is one: Max was born with a congenital heart defect. But the time has come for surgery to help correct it ... and Max was more than a little scared.

    Here's a letter Max's mom wrote to Business Insider, explaining Max's situation, how he responded to the scheduling of the surgery and the awesomeness with which he's facing it:

    We told Max and Els [Max's brother] Sunday afternoon. Initially, Max was crying and repeating how scared how he was. We unpeeled the layers by asking what exactly he was afraid of and tackled each issue as he could verbalize it. Blood draws, spending the night in the hospital and hurting are the big three. He was also very sad that summer would be in rest in recovery instead of playing baseball, golf and traveling. Around bedtime he asked if I would stay up with him and talk. He wanted to make a "CAN DO" list. So we wrote out all the things he can do so he could focus on those. Then he said we definitely had to "Fun Up" the house. So we went and got Els out of bed and spent the next hour redesigning each room with a theme, special rules and secret codes. In the Library (Els Room) we have to read with flashlights. On Whisper Lane (the hallway) you have to whisper. Going up the stairs you have to sing "Take me out to the ball game". The most favorite is the garage—Explode Zone—science experiments and art projects, the messier the better.
    Last night, I wanted to make sure he was doing as well as he seemed. He said, "Mom I don't have a choice. I have to go through it. I don't like it and it's still scary—but I have to. So I think I might as well go through it with a good attitude." So as we hop on Max's coattails to go on this ride—we too, shall do it with a good attitude. Though we will still tremble with tears and have our overwhelming moments—we will focus on the "CAN DO" and enjoy our Fun Up House.

    Mighty Max wants me to include one more thing—one of the lines he uses when he speaks to groups.

    "Kids, if you use your FORCE and dream big, you can achieve anything. We may be small—but we're mighty!"

    Default Shameless Guilty Pleasure Commercials

    <Mods, merge away if you'd like - wasn't sure if this was deserving of its own thread, or needed to be moved to "All Things Television", but given its specific topical nature of commercials in general, I figured I'd play it safe and throw a new thread out there, and see where it goes>

    We all know we do it - we gripe and moan about TV commercials, but every once in a while, some come along that actually speak to us - in some cases, they're actually more entertaining than what we're watching in the first place. So with that in mind, I thought I'd get a new thread started with the "guilty pleasures commercials". There are no rules here; doesn't have to be humorous, doesn't have to be recent; just some commercials that, for some ungodly reason, you just enjoyed probably either more than you should of, or were aware that you might have found the commercial(s) in question to be far more entertaining than anyone else seemed to.

    I'll probably edit the original thread here to include multiples, but to get things rolling, there's something about the Stubhub "Ticket Oak" commercials that just tickle the funny bone; I don't know why, and I've stopped trying to find the reason. I simply watch them....and enjoy....

    I always felt this one was wildly inappropriate for TV...and I loved it the first (and only) time I saw it.
