Super Bowl commercials

The best thing about SuperBowl? The ads, always the ads. Here are a few I liked.

You've noticed how, in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits?

An unsuspecting couple meets Morpheus at a valet stand. He presents them with two choices: a red key or a blue key.

Remember when no one could save the day like Dad? That was then. This is next.

Technology has taken us places we've only dreamed, empowering us to make the impossible possible. Celebrate the people using technology to break barriers and inspire us all.

Watch as a father tells his daughter that every time a Volkswagen hits 100,000 miles, a German Engineer gets his wings.

I only let this one through because the star looks a lot like a Kelpie/Labrador X we had for about 17 years.

It's great to get to see the pick of the most watched US commercials of the year. I found it astonishing they got THOSE actors to do car ads (Morpheus looked like he was really singing Nessum Dorma). These ads hark back to strong family values: the fathers saving the day morphed very well into the car saving the day. And the puppy antics at the end kept me guessing as to what was being advertised until the last minute and yet still provided a boost for Budweiser. But strangely a couple of messages backfired. White soft wings advertising power and precision engineering? Is Microsoft really focused on helping the disabled? It came across as exploitation. Also the car, bus and helicopter movements at the beginning appeared clumsy to eyes used to movie spectacles

A very enjoyable bunch that made me think about movies and messages. Thanks, Henry.
