Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Kia Gives Us More Adriana Lima

Adriana Lima's appearance in the Teleflora ad was one of our favorite moments of the night, so of course it was very welcome when she surprisingly showed up again in a Kia ad. This time, she was wearing a bikini.

It was actually a pretty fun ad for the Korean carmaker. It started with the song "Mr Sandman" with people sleeping when a fairy spreads some dust on them and they start to dream.. about a Kia. Adriana Lima is on a race track in a bikini waving a start flag, Motley Crue was rocking in the background, Chuck Lidell was fighting in a ring on the racetrack... It looked like a pretty typical balls to the wall American car commercial... For a Kia. But I'd say they accomplished their mission. It was a really fun spot.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Still Have No Idea What Bud Light Platinum Is

The ad for Bud Light Platinum not only wasn't interesting, it's hard to even tell what it is. The ad plays it up as if it's some sort of futuristic invention. They refer to it as having "top shelf taste" at one point. Was a "top shelf" Bud Light something people clamoring for? This is very reminiscent of Budweiser Select, which was supposed to be a top shelf version of Bud, but no one could really tell the difference...

Bud Light Platinum is "triple filtered" according to the ad, but I'm not exactly sure what that means. If they make a Bud Light Diamond will it be quadruple filtered? The ad also says "they say you can't mix business with pleasure" and show a guy in his office. So can you drink this at work? Maybe we'll get some answers next or.. or we'll get another pointless Anheuser Busch product.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: NFL's Time Line Ad Was Among The Best

The NFL had an ad of their own during the Super Bowl and it was pretty good. It was called "Evolution" and basically followed the evolution of the NFL by showing footage of players changing from era to era as they run down the field. Nothing too innovative, but it was pretty fun watching how the NFL has changed over the years.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Clint Eastwood Says "It's Halftime In America"

I believe we may have a leader in the clubhouse for the spot so far. And yes, it's a little corny... but I fell for it. Clint Eastwood narrated and starred in Chrysler's "Halftime In America" spot. It ran during halftime of the Superbowl and basically played up the revival of the American car industry, the revival of Detroit and of course the revival of the whole country.

I don't know if it's that I'm watching football, or if it was the recent strong jobs report... But I was humming "America F*ck Yeah" by the end of this spot. It had the same feel as the Chrysler "Imported From Detroit" spot last year with the Eminem 8 Mile song. Obama should be using this spot as is campaign theme or something... Because it was awesome.

Check out the extended version here.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Adriana Lima Turns Up The Heat For Teleflora

Someone give Go Daddy and a call and let them know that this is how you do sexy. Teleflora.com hired Adriana Lima for their Super Bowl/Valentine's Day ad and...they hit a home run. The spot has Adriana just being her crazy sexy self getting dressed for what looks like a night out. The camera eventually pans back and you see a dozen red roses next to her and she says in her cute Brazilian accent, "Guys, Valentine's Day is not that complicated. Give and you shall receive."

It's sexy without being sleazy, suggestive without being vulgar. Very well done by Teleflora and in obvious contrast to the lowest common denominator spots by Go Daddy. Check it out and then go take a cold shower or something. This is a fun one. And the word is that there's more Adriana Lima to come...

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Chevy's Happy Grad Spot Is A Winner

Chevy took a page from the Doritos playbook for their second Super Bowl ad and much like the Doritos spots... it was pretty awesome. A new grad is blindfolded and his parents have bought him a mini fridge for college. However, behind the mini fridge is the neighbor's new Chevy Camaro, which the grad thinks is his actual present. Hilarity ensues...He freaks out, calls his friends, tells his g/f... All without realizing that the car is not his. At the end, the neighbor drives off and the happy grad thinks his car has been stolen.

The spot was done by a guy named Zack Borst, who entered it into Chevrolet's Route66 competition. Borst beat out hundreds of submissions from filmmakers in 32 countries to win the right to have his spot shown to over 100 million people watching the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Danica Patrick Go Daddy Ad Is More Of The Same

Go Daddy essentially put themselves on the map with their racy Super Bowl ad in 2005. They had a girl testifying before congress whose top started to fall off but... wait! The rest was too sexy for TV and you had to go to their website to see the rest! Since then, they've essentially ran a version of that same ad every year, except with race car driver Danica Patrick as the star. By the way, today will mark the record 10th Super Bowl commercial that Danica Patrick has starred in.

This year will be pretty much no different. Their ad stars Patrick and Jillian Michaels putting body paint on the ridiculously sexy Colombian model Natalia Velez. The implication is that she's naked and just as the two girls pull back to admire their work... too hot for TV! Must go to their website to see more unrated action! Spoiler alert, you will not be seeing Natalia Velez nude if you go to their website.

Anyway, here it is.

Super Bowl 2012 Commercials: Coke Ad Will Depend On Outcome Of Game

Coke is doing something pretty fun with their 2012 Super Bowl ad. It will feature the familiar Coke polar bears, but there will be a twist that's tied to how the game is going when the ad airs. It has two polar bears watching the game, one wearing the colors of the Giants and one of the Pats. Honestly, that's kind of tough because Giants and Pats happen to have pretty much the same colors... but this particular version of the spot features the New England bear.

Whichever team is struggling, their bear will get stressed out and go outside to get some fresh air. Some other bears toss him a Coke and.. hilarity ensues. Well, maybe not hilarity, but it's an animated bear slipping around on ice. So, maybe you find that funny.

But the point is that the spot is kind of interesting because it will reflect what is actually happening in the game.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Hyundai "Cheetah" Ad Is A Winner

The car commercials are clearly the stars of the 2012 Super Bowl ad season. We've seen some great spots from Acura, Audi & Toyota and here Hyundai turns in another winner. This one is titled "Cheetah" and looks from the outset like a pretty typical car ad. It's got the new Hyundai Veloster Turbo in a desert and it appears as though it will race a cheetah, which is pacing angrily in a cage. I'm not sure why anyone would expect that a cheetah could outrun a car.... but it does seem like a typical car ad setup.

The twist happens when the race starts, the cheetah is let out of its cage, takes a few steps and realizes the race is pointless, then turns around to attack the guy who just let it out of of the cage. He runs off screaming and hilarity ensues as the guy is presumably mauled by the cheetah.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Honda's Ferris Bueller Ad Is... Ok

When I first saw the teaser for this Honda CRV ad featuring Matthew Broderick reprising his role as Ferris Bueller... I was pumped. For one because I loved the movie as a kid and because it looked like one of those big, only could exist for the Super Bowl kind of ads. People were definitely interested as evidenced by the 11.5 million views the ad has gotten on Youtube already.

The problem is, it's just not as funny as we want it to be. It hits a lot of the cues you'd expect in a Ferris Bueller themed spot and it's not like it's bad... The problem is that just doesn't quite meet the high expectations that came with the teaser. I was hoping for something epic, something that would vie for the contender of the best spot of the game and it's just not that. It's ok.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Toyota Reinvents Everything

Toyota is promoting it's new "reinvented" Toyota Camry with this Super Bowl ad in which they "reinvent" everything. We never hear exactly what it is about the Camry that's been reinvented, but then again we don't really care, so that's a good thing. We do however, hear how they've reinvented the couch by making it out of ladies in bikinis, reinvented the blender by making it play Lionel Ritchie songs and reinvented drapes by making them out of pizza.

Without giving it all away, they remake a lot more. I like it. It's funny, tells you virtually nothing about the product being sold, has half naked ladies and half naked dudes... Basically everything that you want out of a big game ad. Car companies are definitely stepping it up this year. Toyota, Acura, Audi & Chevy all have strong ads this time around.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Audi Channels Twilight In Vampire Ad

Audi has one of my favorite ads so far this year with their #SoLongVampires commercial. The scene opens with some cool looking people hanging out in the woods at a party. But lo and behold we find that they're vampires and we get a few not so subtle references to Twilight. It's got a very beer commercial ad as one vampire is headed back to the party in his Audi after going on a "blood run" (as opposed to a beer run). But as he pulls up to the party, he doesn't realize that his new Audi "Daylight" LED headlamps are killing all of his cool vampire friends! Oh no!

The ad is complete with a great soundtrack thanks to the appropriately titled "Killing Moon" by Echo & The Bunnymen. It ends with the hashtag #SoLongVampires. Funny, anti-Twilight... I like it!

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Pepsi Revives Cheating Coke Driver Ad

It seems to be a theme this year for advertisers to harken back to successful ads of the past. We've already reviewed the Mean Joe Greene redux and now we've got Pepsi reviving a famous spot of their own. In 1996, they ran a spot featuring a Coke delivery guy being "caught" on camera buying Pepsi. This time around, it's a Coke Zero delivery guy at a store buying Pepsi Max, which somehow makes it just a little more lame.

It's got a celebrity cameo at the end too, so it's got all of the Super Bowl Ad tropes you'd expect. We get the joke here and it's not awful, but this is something we've already seen, literally.... Except this time it's zero calories!


Boo on this Pepsi. Overall, it's been a pretty bad Super Bowl spot year for Pepsi... Their Elton John commercial is even worse.

Super Bowl 2012 Commercials: Downy Recreates Mean Joe Greene Ad... Again

The Mean Joe Greene Super Bowl ad for Coke is arguably the most famous big game ad of all time. It's certainly seen as the quintessential Super Bowl ad. This is probably why it's ripped off or referenced several times. Most recently, Coke themselves re-did the ad with Troy Polamalu taking Joe Greene's place. Point is, this has been done and done and done...

That didn't stop Downy from dredging it up one more time. They've got Amy Sedaris in the role of the little boy and managed to get Mean Joe Greene himself to play the role of.. Mean Joe Greene. In the original he gives the kid his jersey... In this one, you've got Sedars hawking a Downy cleaning product of some kind, a dirty football jersey... I'm sure you can guess how it goes from there.

Super Bowl 2012 Commercials: John Stamos Loves Greek Yogurt

A recent Nielsen study showed that last year, more women watched the Super Bowl than men. So not surprisingly, advertisers are starting to target the ladies with Super Bowl ads. Take this Dannon Greek yogurt ad for instance. First off, its awful. It's every Super Bowl ad trope you can imagine with the small twist being that it's kind of a gender role reversal. Think of it as a beer commercial, except it's targeted at ladies, has yogurt instead of beer and John Stamos instead of a "hot chick." He is the hot chick basically...

He's innocently teasing his lady friend by withholding a spoonful of greek yogurt from her... and then the slapstick comes in. She headbutts him and takes the yogurt for herself. So original.. so exciting!

For more Super Bowl commercials with celebs being knocked around slapstick style, see most every Snickers ad from the last couple years.
