Super Bowl Commercials

I don't watch the Super Bowl for the football unless the Bears are playing, so this year I'm solely looking at commercials. Here's a compilation of some of the best, as I see them.

Hyundai: Screaming BMW and Lexus executives, "Win one award, and suddenly everybody gets your name right"--Screaming Germans and Japanese businessmen: always funny

E*Trade: I really like this company, and only last year it was on the verge of collapse what with the financial markets imploding. I grant near total credit for the firm's recovery on the E*Trade baby commercials from last Super Bowl, and the company is continuing them this year (3% interest on savings account might also have helped its recovery). That baby is awesome; I vote him for Treasury Secretary.

Priceline.com: Asian guy doing William Shatner impression. Awesome. (I'm still using Expedia, though)

Coca-Cola: I am so glad they got rid of the slogan "The Coke Side of Life." I mean, what marketing genius came up with that? Now it's "Open Happiness." As a devout Coke drinker, I have to agree. Also, the commercial with all the bugs stealing the Coke to tune of "Peter and the Wolf" was just adorable.

Monster.com: Everyone has felt, at one point or another, that their job consisted of staring at a moose's ass.

Careerbuilder.com: Ok, this beat Monster, I think. Punching koalas with glasses. That's all I need to say.

Miller: High Life!

Cash4Gold.com: As any Objectivist will tell you, this is not a good investment. Keep your gold. I'm talking to you, Ed McMahon

Hulu: Alec Baldwin can turn my brain to mush any day of the week.

Finally, the Pespi commercial with McGruber was good, but Pepsi sucks, so it gets no points.
