Super Bowl 2013: Reviewing the Commercials (1st Quarter) — Plus: Rewatch Them Here!

Feb 3 2013, 6:06pm CST | by

Priceline-KaleyCuoco

It’s time for the Super Bowl (airing on CBS), where every year advertisers pony up big bucks to wave their wares in front of 100 million viewers.

Who drafted big stars to shill? Who went for laughs? Who tugged at heartstrings? And who went out of their way to remind us with a sledgehammer, “Sex sells”?

Read our quick take on the commercials from the 1st quarter of Super Bowl XLVII — refresh for updates! — beneath this handy gizmo for playing back your faves (or ones you missed whilst hitting the loo), then share your own reviews in Comments.

Budweiser Black Crown | If I may borrow from review of last year’s Bud commercial, for something called “Platinum”: “Do we need another beer SKU on the market?” The answer, 360-plus days later is: Apparently yes. Black Crown is seemingly targeting douches, with the tagline: “Here’s to taste. Here’s to our kind of beer.” Grade: FUMBLE

M&Ms | The red M&M will do anything for love, he sings — especially when it involves Glee goddess Naya Rivera. He does however draw the line at licking his candy shell, whipped cream and other indignities. This MM loves anything M&M, so: TOUCHDOWN.

Audi | Borrowing dad’s car gives stag prom kid the gusto to lay one on the prom queen prom kid, black eye or no. The “Bravery. It’s what defines us” slogan seems random, but still: FIELD GOAL.

Hyundai | This may be a local/regional spot, but ’twas a cute one, as a wimpy kid rounds up a ragtag team of football players. Grade: FIELD GOAL

Peyton Manning and Sunday’s Super Bowl Rematch Sparks Twitter Conversation

Sep 24 2014 10:59am CDT | Source: Lost Remote

Let’s face it: last year’s Super Bowl was a dud. The Seattle Seahawks demolished the Denver Broncos 43-8. This past Sunday, the Broncos had a chance to avenge their loss, and a late Peyton Manning-led drive forced the game to overtime. According to our analytics partner Canvs, which measures Twitter sentiment, the five minute period immediately following Manning’s incredible drive accounted for 21% of reactions for the entire nine-hour window m ...
