The commercials that aired during this year's Super Bowl were pretty hit-or-miss, but the ones that "hit" really made me laugh or, in the case of the Wall-E spot, made me grow a little misty-eyed. After the jump, check out my five favorite Super Bowl spots — from talking stains to talking babies — and tell me which ones you liked as well. To check them out, read more
Between stuffing my face with nachos and eyeballing Brady in his tight white pants, I made sure to check out all the commercials during the Super Bowl— the one day when TiVo gets to take a break! There seemed to be a lot of tech ads, including the adorable E-Trade baby commercial and this awesome, yet racy PRODUCT (RED) ad by DELL below. Were there any that you particularly loved? Valleywag has the entire list, so be sure to watch 'em and tell me what you think!
They may not have been able to score tickets to the big game, but I'm sure the lucky folks at the Victoria's Secret What Is Sexy Party at Super Bowl XLII in Scottsdale, Ariz., had a blast anyway. Grey's ladies Katherine Heigl and Kate Walsh enjoyed each other on the red carpet, where the new Mrs. Josh Kelley really sexed it up in that red number. I guess Katherine and Josh weren't named Sexiest Newlyweds (not to mention her most desirable status) for nothing. Of course, it wouldn't be a VS party without some Angels, who didn't show any team alliances (or with their former fellow-winged-one Gisele) in their LBDs. Blake Lively also kept it simple in black with her cute red shoes —not really standard Super Bowl party attire, but when you're doing it Victoria's Secret style I guess the T-shirt and jeans doesn't really cut it.

Did This Year's Super Bowl Commercials Live Up to the Hype? Super Bowl Sunday is the one time of the year I don’t get up to stick more leftovers in the microwave or throw my clothes in the dryer during the commercial break. Last year I thought that overall the ads were pretty underwhelming. This year, it seemed hit-or-miss.
This year, the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest gave one musician the chance to have a single turned into a music video (and Doritos commercial) for Sunday's Super Bowl. The winner: Kina Grannis, a 22-year-old singer-songwriter from California, whose "Message From Your Heart" aired early in Sunday's game. The song is also now available from iTunes, and Doritos and Grannis also teamed to make a full music video for the song.
I was a little surprised that such a folky song would be the winner — wouldn't people watching the Super Bowl be ready to rock? Still, the snippet in the ad was sweet and catchy, if a little generic, and it scored Grannis a record deal with Interscope Records. What did you think of it? Check out the ad and then let me know if you liked Grannis and her Doritos tune.

Last year I thought that overall the ads were pretty underwhelming. This year, it seemed hit-or-miss. Some spots, like the talking E-Trade baby, were great, while others (SalesGenie's panda bears with the terrible accents, say) were really unfunny.

Sigh, the Super Bowl happened yesterday. My own pouting aside, the festivities were fun — and most of you all were rooting for the Giants anyway, so I'm (begrudgingly) happy for all you fans. Heh. Keeping it in the Fox family, there was a big Idol presence at the show between Paula and Randy's pre-show music video/performance and Ryan Seacrest's red carpet. Yes, there was a red carpet at the Super Bowl. Among the celebrities in the house were Kate Hudson sitting alongside Patriots owner Bob Kraft, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy wearing no gear to indicate which side they were rooting for, Nick Lachey and, of course, Gisele Bundchen, who has a battered quarterback to console. Alicia Keys and Jordin Sparks both lent their vocal cords to the big came — Alicia during the pre-show and Jordin for the national anthem — but what did you think of the big Tom Petty halftime show?
