How would aliens judge our intelligence?


I didn't watch the Super Bowl commercials in real time because I didn't watch the Super Bowl. But I did watch all the commercials today, here. Most years, I'm about 50/50 on the commercials, but this year? I was severely unimpressed.

Is it me, or did anyone else think the ick factor reached new heights (lows?) this year? Hearts jumping out of chests, people getting smushed and beat up, kids picking their nose—and what's up with all the butt patting? Geez.

And what do they think our average IQ is anyway? 12?

I did like two of the commercials—the one for Planters Peanuts and the one with Hank, the Budweiser Clydesdale. Those were funny.

However, my current favorite commercial didn't make it to the Super Bowl but every time it comes on, it makes me smile. Wanna' know which one it is? Here's a hint...

Now playing on my iPod: New Soul by Yael Naim

I was very disappointed too. Afterall, it's the only reason I watch the superbowl. That and for the great whores-de-vours (hehehe)

But my faves were the Vlogging baby (except for the part where he puked) and the Audi commercial with the Godfather throwback.

And I liked the doritos commercial where they picked an indie artist to feature. The girl they picked was great (unlike Jordin Sparks who CLEARLY lip synched the entire Star Spangled Banner) and I'm excited to hear more from her.

Man, that's the best part of the Superbowl and you're right . . . major disappointment. I did like Hank the Clydesdale too.
