As a Super Bowl commercial geek watching the game from the Bay Area, it's easy to remember that there are good Super Bowl commercials and there are bad ones. Fortunately, the first half of Super Bowl XLVII has provided some commercials that either give the wrong message about their products, missed the mark in humor, or are just plain bad. Whether you are rooting for the 49ers or the Ravens, you can rest assured that you won't want to watch these Super Bowl commercials any time soon.
Audi Prom: Some awkward high school student goes to his prom alone in this Super Bowl XLVII ad. But his dad lends him the family Audi, which causes his kid to become a sociopath who thinks rules don't apply to him as he parks illegally, sexually harasses the prom queen, and thinks a black eye is a badge of courage. The ad pretty much states that if you see anyone driving their cars, you have Audi's permission to punch them in the eye.
Go Daddy Perfect Match: Go Daddy has been joking about the whole Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction incident of Super Bowl XXXVIII. But it's a joke that has stagnated over the years to the point of being quaint and boring every subsequent year that Go Daddy uses sex appeal to advertise during this Super Bowl commercial. Now Go Daddy decides to blend sex appeal with nerdy squick for Super Bowl XLVII. Does anyone know or care what Go Daddy provides any more?
"Fast & Furious 6" Big Game Spot: Based on this Super Bowl commercial, Vin Diesel and The Rock were doing a GI Joe movie but marketing decided to change into yet another "Fast and Furious" film for Super Bowl XLVII. You can see Vin's facial expression read "Even I think these 'Fast & Furious' films are starting to get far fetched. But they pay the bills." And you can see The Rock's facial expression read "Wait, I thought I was Vin Diesel."
