Ever since the numerous (almost too many to count) Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl wins in the mid-90′s…
…I’ve only been watching the Super Bowl for one reason: the commercials. Admittedly, I’m pretty much the worst person to invite to a Super Bowl party. If asked, I will make food (last night I whipped up a hearty 6-layer dip), but I require complete silence during the commercials. Or, I will nicely – but sternly – request that we rewind and watch them again. Sorry, it is what it is.
I didn’t think that last night’s commercials were the best I’ve ever seen in my life, but I definitely had a few favorites. Here’s a countdown of my Top 5 Favorite 2010 Super Bowl Commercials:
5 – Google: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl-commercials/09000d5d816441a2/Google-commercial
This one made me feel all fuzzy inside. (Or was that the chicken wings?)
4 – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl-commercials/09000d5d81644114/Universal-Studios-Orlando-commercial
I “want to go to there” IMMEDIATELY. Can’t wait until it opens in April!
3 – Kia Sorento: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl-commercials/09000d5d81643d98/Kia-commercial
My favorite part was the robot doing the robot. Brilliant.
2 – Doritos: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl-commercials/09000d5d816448d0/Doritos-smack-commercial
This kid killed Slick. “Keep your hands off my momma…keep your hands off my Doritos!!”
1 – E*TRADE: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl-commercials/09000d5d81644636/eTrade-commercial
Every year, E*TRADE does my favorite Super Bowl commercials. I just love the talking babies. Lindsay, “the milk-a-holic…” was TBE (the. best. ever.) AMAZING!
Not ranked commercials that I also really liked:
Alice in Wonderland: http://superbowlads.fanhouse.com/2010/disney-alice-in-wonderland/
Tim Burton is so visionary. I can’t wait to see this!
Bridgestone Tires: http://superbowlads.fanhouse.com/2010/bridgestone-bachelor-party/
This one made me giggle.
I have to say that the best part of the entire Super Bowl didn’t even happen on CBS. It was on Animal Planet: PUPPY BOWL 2010.
I literally almost died watching this. It started around 3:00 p.m. and was pretty much non-stop coverage of puppies playing in a football-themed pin in Discovery Studios – referee and all. My favorite parts were when the referee threw flags for “illegal use of paws” and “unnecessary ruff-ruff-ness!”
Bunny rabbits were situated around the pin next to pom poms as cheerleaders, hamsters flew in a blimp and there was a kitty halftime show. KITTY HALFTIME SHOW! I don’t even like cats and I thought this was unbelieveably precious!

P.S. Did anyone see Kim Kardashian at the game? I was looking for her the whole time and she wasn’t shown once. Just saying…
