If you missed any of the Super Bowl ads during the big game on Sunday night, you might be a little out of the loop around the water-cooler this week. If you didn't see the hilarious spot with comedienne and actress Amy Poehler running around Best Buy like a crazy lady trying to get her every question answered, or the Doritos angry goat who just wants his nacho-cheese flavored chips (or else), you may not be able to appreciate just how good the Super Bowl commercials 2013 were.
If you have a few minutes, and a fast Internet connection, you can get caught up pretty quickly with the link below. Huffington Post has posted all of this year's new game-day ads into a clever video slideshow, and we'll direct you there.
There was a little something for everybody in terms of ads during the big game Sunday night. There were funny spots, like the Doritos angry goat ad and Amy Poehler's antics for Best Buy mentioned above, but there were also some pretty emotional, deep-thinker sort of spots. In particular, Jeep's salt-of-the-earth "God Made A Farmer" ad had a big impact with viewers. "I cried," confessed one Super Bowl viewer after seeing the "God Made A Farmer" spot toward the end of the game. "The other Jeep ad for our military families made me tear up, too."
That spot, which featured scenes depicting the realities of military service and the sacrifices made by both soldiers and their loved ones left behind (with Oprah narrating their struggles and pride in voice-over), tugged at patriotic heartstrings all around the country.
Now, there is another distinct category of Super Bowl ads besides silly and serious: sexy! This year, Go Daddy let loose with a "Sexy Meets Smart" spot featuring supermodel Bar Refaeli swapping spit with a nerdy-looking guy, and Calvin Klein showed off their underwear on an impossibly-chiseled male model. These ads were a bit over the top for some viewers. "I did not need to see that," complained one viewer caught off-guard by the "Sexy Meets Smart" Go Daddy ad; it is unclear whether the problem was the kissing, or the "Beauty and the Beast" factor.
