And here you have it. My much anticipated selections of the very best commercials of Super Bowl 2010. Wait — was that? You want my opinion of the game? Oh, yeah, you can find that by clicking here.
But without further ado, here’s the best of the best. And if anyone knows the final score of the game itself, could you email me?
I think this was my favorite Super Bowl commercial ever. As an adorable seven year old dressed in a Darth Vader costume walks around his house, he is on a quest to find an object that responds to his magical powers while the Star Wars Darth Vader music plays in the background. He makes adorable yet strong attempts to exert his forces onto a doll, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and his golden retriever- no such luck. He runs outside to try to power up the Volkswagen in the driveway, and the new automatic feature that allows the driver to power up the car from the distance makes it possible. Stunned by his capabilities, the child is extremely startled. This commercial will definitely make you smile no matter what.
Scenic clips of the Wild West fill the screen before a tough cowboy slowly walks into a bar. The fun filled atmosphere quickly turns into fear as the cowboy slowly approaches the bar. He requests a ‘bud’, from the bartender… the second after he takes a sip he breaks into song- Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer”. Not so tough after all.
Motorola perfected the art of parody while they mocked the Apple commercial from 1984 introducing ‘Macintosh’. By making an appearance of the new gadget, Motorola mimicked the idea by showing an apple obsessed world; suggesting a revolution to break from the pack and to purchase a different brand of technology.
Finally! The iPhone is coming to Verizon… it’s about time. While this moment has been widely anticipated, Verizon poked fun at the idea that although AT&T covers 91% of Americans, their towers are so packed with different phone calls that the calls are dropped all the time. The classic Verizon nerd with black glasses picks up the iPhone and says “Now I can hear you.”
Gross yet hilarious. No one can deny that the best part of finishing a bag of Doritos is licking the powder cheese off of your own fingers. Of course, you don’t expect someone else to do it for you.
Well, that’s it for this year everyone. Wait, we have a question from the audience. Yes, go ahead. What? What was the final score of the Super Bowl? Um, wow, look at that, we’re out of time. Looking forward to seeing you this time next year!
