2010 Super Bowl Commercials

One of the best parts of the Super Bowl is watching the commercials. With the high cost to air a commercial during the big game, most advertisers want to make a commercial that will make an impact and be remembered.

For me, the best commercial this year was by CBS for their “Late Show With David Letterman” promo. The surprise twist at the end with Jay Leno sitting on the same couch as David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey made me laugh out loud, especially knowing about the bitter feud between the two hosts. I read a very interesting article about “The Late Show” commercial was secretly filmed, and discusses how David Letterman also wanted Conan O’Brien to appear in the ad.

Some of my other favorite commercials this year were by Kia (with the toys partying to a catchy song by The Heavy), Hyundai (with the un-retired Brett Farve winning MVP in ten years), and E*TRADE (the baby talking to his girlfriend as she questions what he has been up to).

I have to give an honorable mention to FLO TV for their commercial that included many historical television clips set to Will.i.am’s remix of “My Generation” by The Who.

What happens if you wear oversized pants without a belt? Your pants will fall down.

General Larry Platt wrote a song about the popular trend. Even though Platt was too old to compete in the singing contest, the 62 year old musician was allowed to appear on “American Idol” this season to sing “Pants On The Ground.” Instantly, the song about looking like a fool became a hit.

“Pants On The Ground” has been remixed by several different artists and uploaded to YouTube. Jimmy Fallon performed the song as Neil Young. Jimmy Fallon performed the song with American Idol judge Randy Jackson. After defeating the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, Brett Farve celebrated with a “Pants On The Ground” chant. Who’s next?
