Superbowl Ads

I always enjoy the Superbowl — nominally for the football and the opportunity to choose a team at random about which I know nothing and talk schmack to everyone rooting for the other team, but mostly for the ads.

This year featured a reasonably good crop. There was a notable tendency toward fat-man humor, with a significant subset of fat-man-dancing visual jokes. (Budweiser Blow Dryer, Dr. Pepper Hudson River Dance, etc.) The Budweiser What Are You Doing, E*Trade Dot Com Graveyard, and EDS Running with the Squirrels were also personal favorites. I also took a personal pleasure in booing the Accenture ads, because I have to maintain their foul code at work.
