Superbowl Commercials

February 5, 2012

It used to be that we had to sneak around the web to find low resolution YouTubes of the commercials weeks or even months after the big game.  Not any more.  The National Football League is beginning to embrace the technology of the 21st century.  Now they have all their special ads together on one handy page, available for free viewing in high definition. Similarly, for the first time ever, they offer a “Game Pass” for about the price of a movie that allows ex-patriots (no pun intended) unlimited access to their live and archival NFL network videos.  I bought it yesterday and  will probably be buying the pass annually.  Very slick and with better access and options than any cable or satellite provider offers.

P.S.  Funny how you don’t know which team you want to win until the game actually starts.  Almost to my surprise, I found I was internally cheering for the Giants from even before the first kick off.  So, I was glad to see them win, but I wouldn’t have been very disappointed to see Tom Brady lifting the trophy either.  Next year, if they keep Suggs and Lewis, I want the Ravens to take it all.

(Editor’s Note) Thanks to Kenai for the heads-up on the Clint/Chrysler ad. Script embedded after the jump.

It’s Halftime in America Script:
It’s halftime. Both teams are in their locker room discussing what they can do to win this game in the second half.
It’s halftime in America, too. People are out of work and they’re hurting. And they’re all wondering what they’re going to do to make a comeback. And we’re all scared, because this isn’t a game.

The people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Motor City is fighting again.

I’ve seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in my life. And, times when we didn’t understand each other. It seems like we’ve lost our heart at times. When the fog of division, discord, and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead.
But after those trials, we all rallied around what was right, and acted as one. Because that’s what we do. We find a way through tough times, and if we can’t find a way, then we’ll make one.

All that matters now is what’s ahead. How do we come from behind? How do we come together? And, how do we win?

Detroit’s showing us it can be done. And, what’s true about them is true about all of us.

This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it’s halftime America. And, our second half is about to begin. Via the YouTube link.

    Fun game. Better commercials. Chrysler + Clint Eastwood = WIN

    Not a Madonna fan, but she did pretty well. Especially when she brought Cee Lo up on stage. He is Awesome!

    One more thing about Madonna… How does a 50 year old get up there and still think she’s 16?! (she’s sure moving more slowly…) That whole routine with the pom pom? Really?!… However, I can’t remember her ever looking better and she can sure put on a show. “Take THAT Lady Gaga! Madonna is the Queen of raunchy music, leg spreading and pelvic thrusts!!”

      LOL I never got to see the show. I figured wrongly that it would be included in the films on the NFL site, but it’s not there.

      OK, I finally got to see the half-time show. All of your comments are right on. She just about fell, too. In her defense, apparently, she performed with a healing pulled heels. If that is the case, she did just as well as some of those football players.

    LOL This is pretty funny!

    You know, upon my very first viewing, when the credits rolled with “Imported from Detroit” what spontaneously came from my own lips was: “Brought to you by the taxpayers of America”.

    Love me some Clint, and I do want to be inspired.
