    Anyone have any "scoop" on what some of the ads this year might include?

    What Super Bowl ads do you consider classics?

    One of my recent personal favorites is the Bud ad with the two cowboys watching horses play football...Cowboy 1: "This official is a real ***". Cowboy 2:"No, I believe that's a zebra".

    I also recall that Master Lock used their entire advertising budget on placing one ad during the game. It showed one of their locks being shot and not breaking. I read somewhere that a recognition study was done later and most people recalled seeing that ad 10-15 times even though it was only shown 1 time (during the Super Bowl).

    I loved the "Cat Wranglers" one from a few years back. EDS


    I'm looking forward to the Rolling Rock ad that they're already apologizing for - pretty clever gimmick, to promote your upcoming add. Don't recall that ever happening before.

    The one that drives me nuts is the Apple computer ad back in '84 that was a spinoff of the book 1984. So many people embrace it as classic and clever. I thought it was stupid then and still today when they replay it.

    I loved Terry Tate office linebacker for Reebok.

    That commercial along with the 4 or so online commercials that followed it were absolutely hilarious.


    heres a link to the first in a series of videos.

    I can't believe the fast food places are upset over that. What has this society come to if you can't even laugh at that?

    For me, nothing is better than the Budweiser lizards and frogs spoof.

    Classic.
