The Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials Starring Food: 2014 Edition

2014_SBspot_Oikos.jpg

Would you believe that if you had a dollar for every Dorito consumed on Super Bowl Sunday you'd have enough money to buy a spot during halftime? Sure you'd believe it. But I just made that shit up. Folks eat up statistics about Super Bowl ad spend, but do they eat up the foods advertised during the game? Beats me. That's not really the point. The point is ... America, apparently. So much America. And hashtags. Hashtags are the real winners this year, folks.

The following are my picks for the ten best food-based Super Bowl ads for 2014.

10. Newcastle's "Behind The Scenes Of The Mega Huge Game Day Ad Newcastle Almost Made"

This spot's getting a lot of positive buzz for Anna's little "Am I beer commercial hot?" monologue. I'm just glad she didn't sing that effing "Cups" song. Again. Shit gets stuck in my head for days.

9. Chobani "Bear Attack!"

Newsflash: Bears like honey and honey-flavored yogurt. And trashing convenience stores. Man, bears are so hot right now, as this was one of two spots starring bears. Also, Joe Namath may or may not have been wearing a bear to the game.

8. SodaStream "Sorry, Coke And Pepsi"

What's that saying about the definition of insanity? Trying to trash talk the Super Bowl's biggest advertiser two years in a row expecting a different result? I'm really not sure why SodaStream has the money or balls to purchase airtime and Scarlett "big boobies" Johansson, but since the halftime show (not to mention the Go Daddy ads, surprisingly) didn't have any T&A, I suppose we're close to even.

7. Doritos "Cowboy Kid"

It's a simple equation. Kids + dogs + chips = Super Bowl success. A kid getting all wild, wild West and riding a mastiff to get Doritos? Even cuter. And then he hogties his brother! Adorbs! Speaking of puppies, you'll notice I didn't include the Budweiser "Puppy Love" spot in this list because it's an absolute effing cop-out! "What's cuter than last year's little boy who grows up to be besties with a Clydesdale? A PUPPY?! We are brilliant." -- Budweiser and their ad folk. You will not win, Budweiser. Not this year. Bud Light, however ...

6. Bud Light "Ian Up For Whatever"

This Bud Light commercial takes a TV's Average Joe-like guy out for the night of his life because when you drink mediocre beer, anything can happen. It's epic in a Super Bowl ad sort of way, which I appreciate. Who else is dying to finish this joke: Don Cheadle and a llama walk into an elevator ...

The commercials sucked worse than that crappo game.  I kind of liked the Doberuaua commercial... really freaky.

Commercials and overtly queer halftime shows are for the frau.  Best way to watch any game is by one's lonesome, with a computer module handy to look up stats. No 'man's" watches a game with a crowd, or chicks-unless it is in a "recognized" bar.  At 5:30 yesterday the wife and kids were given notice that a game would be on, and that I SHOULD NOT be bothered. I was sound asleep by 7PM!


ps-anyone heard from our antihero, fooddick? 



"Hashtags are the real winners this year, folks".............not to be critical, but did a 15 year old girl write this?

I was hoping there'd be a game worth talking about.

The crazies most upset by the multi-lingual Coke ad also apparently can't tell the difference between "America the Beautiful" and "The Star Spangled Banner".

ok, I take that back.........and I put FD back in his cage.  I let that thing out, and he sh=t all over the divan.  Why did my grandmother use words such as the "divan" and the "piazza"? Was couch and living room TOO EASY to describe?  And why sweet little savior, did she have plastic on everything?
