Post-Super Bowl 46 Notes: Ad Favorites, Puppies and Avoiding Who Actually Won

Well, another Super Bowl is done and I can’t say I’m happy with the result.

It was a great game, though, and my husband sure is happy.

If only Wes Welker caught that pass. If only Tom Brady didn’t start the game off with an intentional grounding/safety. If only…

Before the game, we watched some of the Puppy Bowl. My 3 year old asked when the puppies would be playing again during the first 5 minutes of the football game.

During the game, I ate lots of food, Facebooked, tweeted, texted and took a few notes on my iPad.

Being an advertising junkie, I noted which ads I liked the best. (Because, let’s face it, as a Pats fan I’m trying to focus on something other than the game right now.) Here are the top 5 ads that stood out for me:

  • Suzuki “Sled” - The Suzuki commercial features Siberian huskies jamming out in a 2012 Suzuki Kizashi, presumably somewhere in Alaska. The driver apparently traded the dog sled in for the car. It has huskies in it, so we loved it.
  • M&M’S “Just My Shell” – A couple of men giggle because they think a brown M&M showed up to a party naked, as a red M&M takes off his red “shell” and starts dancing to “Sexy and I know it.” Dancing M&M’s are funny. That is all.
  • Doritos® – Man’s Best Friend – The Doritos commercial that starts with a Great Dane hiding tags to a cat collar and ends with him bribing his “Dad” with a bag of Doritos and a note that says “You didn’t see nuthin” was a big hit in our house.
  • The Dog Strikes Back: 2012 Volkswagen Game Day Commercial – The sporty new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle inspires Bolt the dog to get into shape. Another animal-themed ad that made us laugh.
  • A Dream Car. For Real Life.” — 2012 Kia Optima – This commercial features Motley Crue. That’s about all you need to know. It made everyone in my house laugh out loud. Or, kickstart my heart, if you will.
