What’s the big deal with Superbowl commercials?
We don’t watch much live tv in our house. Mostly because of the commercials. I’m probably the only person on earth who goes to the bathroom and hangs out around the food rather than watch the Superbowl commercials. Don’t laugh but I do watch the half-time show. Crazy, right?
I love football, though. Football is the only reason we have cable tv at our house. We went years without cable tv until we moved to CA and we couldn’t get a local tv station signal. No signal, no football. So now we have FiOs. For the football. True Story.
I always find myself disappointed by the Superbowl ads. I think they all fall flat for me because of all the hype and anticipation. I’m expecting something really awesome and then it turns out that I’m just watching a stupid commercial. Maybe I’m just lame but I can’t remember watching an ad I felt made it worth missing out on grabbing a fresh beer and another round at the junk food table. Maybe I’d be thinner if I watched more commercials?
So, on Superbowl Sunday when people get all excited about the commercials I get all excited about beer and football and food. I figure if a commercial is really all that funny I’ll catch it in my Facebook stream or when it’s re-tweeted on Twitter 150,000 times. Besides, most of the ads have already been released on YouTube anyway. What’s Trending and the Huff have already released compilations of the best 2013 Superbowl Commercials. Why wait until Sunday? The buzz is on…
