super bowl XLI... The Ads.
here's a link to all commercials on the SB... myspace.com/superspots
okay - here's where i'll be listing the ads as they come up... hoping sierra mist gets some early ads right after kick-off... we'll see. we're barely into pre-game stuff and i'm likkered up on english muffin pizzas and pepperoni/mozz rolls.
UPDATE 4:24pm: i've eaten 4 slices of pudding cake with whipped cream as well as 2 cups of strawberries and a handful of peanuts. only 2 hours til kickoff and i've eaten through half the food.
UPDATE 5:14pm: glued to the set watching the Puppy Bowl III on Animal Planet (i missed the kitten halftime show though)
UPDATE 6:06pm: moving on to celery with ranch dressing to cleanse the palate
UPDATE 6:19pm: think i am rooting for the colts. they have that redhead.
So, let the Adverts begin! (if you see an ad that i don't have listed - it might be a regional thing, so post it in my comments. Also, comment about which ads you like throughout the game -- or after if you're too drunk to post!)
NATIONAL ANTHEM: billy joel singing. um... ultra-close up of a bear's eyeball. marlee matlin signing... she really hit that high note. adverts after the anthem aren't really important. it's what's after the kickoff that counts.
AFTER COIN TOSS: (chicago won toss. heads)
ford superduty - pick up. flying parts - neat 3-d schematic.
eh. holy shite. 14 seconds in, bears have a TD. did i say i was rooting for the colts? well, no one in chicago will be paying attention to the first commercial. and now the bears intercepted a few minutes later. okay... NOW the fist advert
