Super Complaints

February 8, 2010 by admncc

Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints for winning Super Bowl XLIV.  I know my friend, Lacey, is celebrating along with the rest of Bourbon Street.

Now, for all you sports-haters out there, this post is not about the football game.  Instead, it’s just a few random complaints from during the game.

For starters, I don’t know about you, but I didn’t think the commercials were great this year.  And shame on Doritos for their casket ad.  Many people thought that was in very poor taste.

Now as far as the musical performances, it seemed that every artist struggled.  Queen Latifah just didn’t sound good.  Carrie Underwood couldn’t hit her big ending.  And as far as The Who, I think TMZ summed it up the best when they said, “If you want to be upset about anything that went on during the Super Bowl – take your anger out on whoever booked The Who for the halftime show.”

I realize it’s hard to find a band that has multi-generational appeal.  And leading up to the game, a lot of people were very excited to see The Who.  I mean, come on, who doesn’t like “Baba O’Riley!”  But they looked old and they sounded even older.  At first I thought they were lip syncing too, but as it went on, it sounded so bad that I figured it had to be live.

By the way, going back to the commercials for a moment, I wasn’t sure what to expect after all the media hype, but I didn’t really see anything wrong with the Tim Tebow ad.

Finally, it was nice to see the two number one teams face off, but I was kind of pulling for Peyton Manning to bring home the championship.  Oh well.  But I did enjoy the CareerBuilder “Casual Friday” ad.  If I had to pick one, I guess that would be my favorite of the night.

    Pete Townshend, (the driving artistic force for The Who) is a SCUM SUCKING CHILD SEX PREDITOR. I’m not sure if he was required to register as a gross child sex preditor in Miami-Dade, but he should have been. The NFL should be ashamed for hiring them.

    The “Green Police” ad was priceless, and I think it will begin to put an end to the eco-fascists that have overtaken Washington…especially since it has now been proven that the green movement is a political movement based on lies and designed to expand communism and socialism while ending capitalism.

    Budweiser did a great job as usual. It was refreshing to not see the presence of the commie Pepsi ads.

    Was anyone else concerned that the gov’t ran a spot to advertise the 2010 census? King Barry wasting money again…go figure.

  2. I think they should steer clear of issues such as “abortion” unless they are going to air advertisements for both sides of the issues. I enjoyed the CareerBuilder ad. I missed the half-time show but from what I’m hearing, I’m glad I did.

    Thanks, my friend! Our whole state is super pumped! Stop by my blog sometime towards the end of the week and I’ll have photos from the big Saints parade we’re having here tomorrow night!

    I thought the commercials were lacking as well. I liked the Casual Friday ad & the Green Police ad. I actually thought that the Target ad that they played during the playoff games was funnier. This one:

    & The Who, who? I’m 25 and had to look up what songs they sang because I was clueless. Admittedly, I know some of their songs, but I wouldn’t have had I not researched it. The Super Bowl big wigs need to get over the whole Janet Jackson showing her nipple thing(when was that, 04?) & hire a band with some recent popularity.

    I didn’t watch as I’m a Favre fan and he fell short this year. Maybe he’s retiring for good but who knows.

    I liked the Tebow spot. It was a positive ad. Not sure why the feminazis were so uptight.

    I didn’t like Carrie Underwood’s performance at all either.

  7. Tallelf says:

    I myself liked the MCD’s ad, It pretty much summed up the halftime show as well “who was that?”

    CC they couldn’t have been lip syncing esp during Teenage Wasteland he sounded like he was struggling not to fill a depends during that song. Sorry guys the Who was great BITD, but their day in the spotlight is gone.

    I’m not happy that the saints won. I’m a die hard Peyton fan and was sad to see him lose. As for the commericals….they have sucked for years now. I can’t believe that companys pay millions of dollars to play a horrible ad. I guess they spent all the money for the time slot and didn’t have enough left for a good marketing/advertising person. I am going to agree with tallelf and the Mcdonald’s commerical with Lebron and Larry Bird was so funny I laughed out loud!! That is super bowl worthy. The volkswagon “punch-bug” ad was good too. Budweiser was okay, but didn’t make me laugh. As for the Tebow ad, I didn’t see anything wrong with it. From all the hype leading up to it, I didn’t see what the big deal was.

  9. Jen says:

    I must agree about the commercials. I wasn’t watching that closely but none of them stood out. Plus, many of them were very misogynistic. Not that I’m a raging feminist or anything but there was quite a bit of women hating going on.
    I did get back to my roots and wrote a nice complaining post on my site that you might enjoy. Do stop by.

    I didn’t see the Tim Tebow ad and I doubt I’ll go and watch it, I stick to the funny stuff for the superbowl. haha.

    Hope you enjoyed some of the Superbowl cranky, haha. What did you think of UFC 109?

  11. Jacki says:

    I saw the Tebow ad and didn’t think it was controversial at all. At no time were the words “pro-life” or abortion even brought up. His mom just talked about how proud she was of him since doctors thought he wouldn’t make it. Then you were invited to go to the website to hear the whole story, not forced to.

    I have read that since most people didn’t find the ad offensive or controversial, the NOW organization is now saying the ad perpetrated violence against women, since he tackled his mom.
