Super Bowl Sunday

So although I'm not really a fan of football, I admit that I love watching the Super Bowl for the commercials and the half-time show (although this year I have mixed feelings about the selection of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as the headliner....on one hand they are a classic, safe choice, yet at the same time, IMHO, somewhat outdated and off target given the plethora of strong younger performers that could have been chosen....)
Anyhow.....to get us into Super Bowl mode, check out this link to view the Top 50 Super Bowl Commercials of all time (with imbedded videos for each one!)

Here is one of my personal faves - from 1999 I believe. I think Mountain Dew is disgusting, but this ad definitely made me smile.


Have a happy football watching, beer drinking, junk food eating, commercial analyzing, or whatever-you-want-it-to-be Sunday.

oh boy, Matt would beg to differ. He is a total Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers FAN FREAK!!! I feel the same way as you do but I've grown an appreciation to them living with a TP fanman.

Don't get my wrong, I do love Tom Petty - I grew up listening to their tunes. I just think that of all the amazing musicians out there today, maybe they could have selected more of a modern group to reach the younger audience? Or at least have a younger pop star in addition to Tom Petty? Just my thoughts...
