UPDATE 8 February 2010 07:03: Computerworld waxes nostalgic over great Superbowl tech ads past. This year was a major disappointment in the ad department, not at all living up to the standard we've come to expect:
UPDATE 8 February 2010 07:22: This one was my favorite last night - The Green Police. I love the Styrofoam sniffing anteater.
UPDATE 8 February 2010 13:59: There are a lot of folks that really don't like this ad. Via Soylent Green, a comment:
I don’t get it. It’s supposed to be an advert for cars, but after watching it, I want to buy shotgun shells. What gives? Is there some kind of subliminal message?Maybe I'm weird, but I interpreted this as poking fun at the enviro-Nazis. Mockery, to appeal to the too-cool-to-be-earnest crowd. Being for the environment while you mock the environmentalists. I actually thought it was quite effective, but seemingly lots of folks don't agree with me.
