Posted on 02/04/2013 5:14:26 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
The 49ers only lost by a few points, but these advertisers lost big, ticking off viewers with sexist or unfunny commercials. Watch the worst commercials of this years Super Bowl below. Disagree with our choices?Let us know in the comments.
Go Daddy: This commercial objectifies women and makes fun of unattractive people...
Go Daddy: First impression: Can it be?A Go Daddy ad without bikini-clad babes?...
Doritos: A little girl wants her dad to play with her, but he is about to go hang out with the guys...
Volkswagen: This commercial, released early, has been controversial all week. An average white guys Volkswagen makes him happy so happy that he speaks with a Jamaican accent....
Gildan: After a crazy one-night stand involving fuzzy handcuffs, a dude tries to escape without waking the woman he hooked up with ... except shes wearing his favorite t-shirt, and he needs to find a way to get it off of her...
Bonus: Century 21: Though a few of them aired before the actual game, every single one of the ads that Century 21 prepared for the Super Bowl comes across tone deaf at best, and mean at worst.

I thought the VW ad and both Doritos ads were funny (the one with the goat was funnier)
cars.com was good...
I’m with you, I thought the vw commercial was funny, not insulting or hurtful towards anyone. Yes, the go daddy one was nasty, I speed watching part way into the kiss, second time it came on I went to the kitchen. I thought the t shirt one and the Doritos ones were dumb. I liked the bud voodoo doll one,thought it was on - there’s always a fan for the other team just as into it as you are.
This year was terrible compared to past years, nothing really clever.
I watched very little of the superbowl, though I did see the Clydesdale ad. Very good one, but it seems that whenever they pull out the Clydesdales, the ads are good.
none of the funny ads were, well, funny. The best two by far were the Farmer ad (one of the best ever) and the Clydesdale ad, but of course, those were not humor ads, which was sort of odd for the Super Bowl....also odd was the farm theme of those. Look for farmers to be “cool” for a while throughtout the culture now.
Nice to see someone besides Anheuser-Busch can make a memorable, pro-military commercial while keeping their product low-key (Jeep).
So was the halftime show........
Not only are the Go Daddy commercials bad, their company sucks to boot.
C’mon! The best was PSY in the pistachio advert!
Who couldn’t help but laugh with PSY lip-synching “Crackin’ Gangnam Style” while the chorus in the background sang, “Heeyyyyyyyy, crack your nuts, now!”
The Doritos commercial was funny!
I was eating when the “Go Daddy” kiss commerical came on. Sickening.
I think the internal power outage in the “Energy Efficient” Superdome was rather comical.
I have no love for Beyonce so I skipped the halftime show.
I agree. Was it me, or did the entire sb have a "ghetto" theme this year. Maybe in honor of the departing Ray Lewis.
On the best, a toss up between Dodge Ram “God made farmers” and the Jeep salute to our troops.
Kleenex for both...
Also loved the trainer who came to see his Clydesdale do good. Very heart warming.

The second Go Daddy ad was actually effective in its message, and lacking in sexual crudity (for a change). Can’t see that being a “worst” ad. (The first one was easily the bottom of the barrel, however.)
...The best two by far were the Farmer ad (one of the best ever) and the Clydesdale ad...We agree! The rest were disappointments in one way or another. And we watched the strong-man competition (the truck pull) during halftime. Better entertainment! :)
I was dabbling with Twitter about the power outage...lot of funny stuff about it....
The Dodge ad, with Dodge only subtly in the background, using Paul Harvey’s talk on “The Farmer” was the best Super Bowl ad ever IMHO.
But I’m biased. It started with God, and went to what is missing so greatly in our nation: character. Willingness to sacrifice, suffer, lay down one’s life for family and others, work hard beyond comprehension, and so much more.
Been a Chevy truck guy all my life until they were taken over by Gov. Motors and the Union, a Ford guy since then - and never like Dodges.
But I’m tempted to go get a new one just because of their ad.
But then again - they took the Gov. pill too.....
Kudos to Dodge. It took “Guts” to do that ad.
Doritos Goat, Bud Light - jinxing the chair, and the dateless kid taking his dad’s car to the prom & kissing the prom queen.
And the M&M commercial.
the absolute best SB ad:
Ditto. The Clydesdale ad was my favorite this year.
Wife, kids and I had a SB Commercial watching party - we fast forwarded through most of the game and stopped for the commercials.
We didn’t mind the VW commercial - we thought that if they played that very often it would quickly become annoying, but it wasn’t offensive.
We liked the Doritos commercials - goat and girl/daddy/friends (goat one was best).
We really didn’t care for the Century 21 ads - we just didn’t think they were that funny. Our 16 year old commented that apparently all those women are Gold Diggers looking for the first opportunity to “off” their husbands for insurance money. Now THAT was funny!
The Farmer ad was awesome! We thought the Jeep commercial was heart-felt, but my wife commented on how far Oprah had fallen that she needed to do a voice-over for a commercial.
The voodoo commercials were pretty good (of course, I am a Miller man, so the product SUCKS), but their commercials are usually funny.
The half-time show SUCKED! It had nothing but partially-naked women shaking their butts at, and thrusting their ho-ha’s at, the camera! You could barely hear her sing and I heard more of the back-up singers throughout the whole show that Beyounce! It was very BAD!
No, it wasn’t you.
Our entire society has a ghetto theme.
Class and decorum are no longer in style.
Yes, God, and Paul Harvey, and America - and Paul believed in both and everyone knows it. it’s like Dodge just stole “baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet” from GM.....
Bumping & grinding...couldn’t understand a word that she sang.
Yeah, GM is tainted for me NO MATTER how they market their product.
I thought the two (carbonated flavorless water sold as if it was beer) commercials w/ Stevie Wonder were funny. The oreos in the library commercial was hilarious. Although opinions vary.
Worst year for commercials I’ve ever seen. The kid kissing the prom queen one was ok.
The commercials were generally so unmemorable that I wondered if they are intentionally trying to start deemphasizing them.
Farmer, Clydesdale, without question. I also liked the Taco old fogy nursing home night out. Funny! But so many of the ads made little sense and used sex to make a point instead of humor. I did like the Doritos dad and his friends, tho.
Why is there always so much destruction? Crashes all over, yet no one hurt. Makes people feel immortal. Not just commercials, but movies too. The Oreo was funny in a way, but only in that the rescuers whispered, too.
Notice most of the WashPost reasons were for politically correct reasons. Not quality of ad. The Godaddy ad was uncomfortable, but not because it objectified women or demeaned nerds. It was the gross up close kissing. That said, it was extremely effective (as usual).
I LOVED the God made a farmer ad for Ram with Paul Harvey
i like the “seniors getting their groove on” Taco Bell ad...
I don’t really enjoy ads featuring people who sing about killing American troops
the Dodge truck/farmer ad was soooo not Super Bowl... not a good one...
What about the LONG ad with the two guys sitting in chairs, facing each other? One guy was spewing about raising taxes again, smirking and smarmy and the other guy had brown stuff on his nose...
That was a commercial, right?
Sold my ‘06 2500HD Duramax Diesel 4x4 LT loaded with everything that I bought when you could get the employee discount for $12k less than I paid for it 5 years later with 60k mis. on it.
Bought a like new ‘96 F-150 XLT 4x4 with factory off-road package and love it. Only Fords from here on.
BTW, my first 3 cars were Fords....’’51 Crestliner, ‘66 Mustang coupe, new ‘68 “Bullitt” fastback with 302 4bbl.
The worse one on Oprah and Jeep. She does not believe a word she said.
Thankfully I missed that....I cannot stand the sound of the assclown’s voice.
Really? Never heard that.
Stupid feminist whore working for the Wash Post analyzes the commercials through eyes that see everything based on racism and sexism.
