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.

...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
