Super Bowl commercials: ultra violent?

Unfortunately, I missed the first half of the Super Bowl because I was engaging in a sport - mountain biking - rather than just sitting on my couch like a lardass. But, now I'm back and let the lardassnessism begin!

First, we turn to Shukakitty at DailyKos, who's scared:

Virtually all the ads during the first quarter (if not the first half and more) featured violence prominently - people slapping each other, smacking each other, manhandling a mouse and even an older gentleman. I fear the admen and women, who spend quite a bit of money learning how to speak to the current populace, have learned that violence, dissing someone, making a fool out of someone, is what sells. This is what is seen as funny these days. This makes me sad.
