Super Bowl 41: America falls asleep edition

Many Super Bowls have been blowouts; some might have even been over in the first quarter. The 41st Superbowl wasn't finalized until about 10 minutes in the fourth quarter, but it was boring and poorly played before and after that point. The Indianapolis Colts ended up with 29 points to the Chicago Bears' 17.

Add all that together with a meaningless half-time performance by The Artist Who Was Once Formerly Known As Prince But Who's Realized That Was a Big Mistake And Who Now Wants To Be Called Prince Again and poorly-done and unfunny TV commercials with not a single one having anything memetic, and you get what might possibly be the most boring Superbowl in history.

Dropped Lexus; shoe sniffing; Jack-in-the-Box

Well, that was a trio of less than stellar commercials. They dropped a Lexus from a helicopter and another Lexus beat it before it hit the ground. ZZZzzzzzzzz

Then, we had someone smelling his shoes, and some basketball (?) star signing someone else's forehead.

Then, a commercial from Jack-in-the-Box. Some of those are fairly funny. This one wasn't that good. I also thought they were just a regional chain, but that looked like it was in a national position.

Ceiling hair?

I think it was Nissan that had an ad for people who have Big Hair and have trouble fitting into cars. Their Sentra has a wonderful new feature giving more headroom, saving those with mohawks, B-52s, and cowboy hats.

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.
