It goes without saying that my favorite ad from last night’s Super Commercial Bowl 2010 was Betty White’s commercial for Snickers. Betty White is like bacon. Her presence makes everything better. That being said, Snickers did get it a little twisted. Betty White could murder a herd of Khloe Kardashians just by flinching, so I didn’t appreciate that “you’re playing like Betty White” line. More like you’re NOT playing like Betty White.
The rest of the commercials paled in comparison, but let’s talk bout a couple of them anyway. Google’s ad was at the top of a bunch of lists. While watching this mess, I couldn’t help but think that Hollywood is going to turn this into a feature-length romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks as the Googler and Meg Ryan as the French girl. You’ve Got Google In Paris!
Oprah and Letterman’s sequel to their 2007 ad also starred Conan O’Brien’s dream killer. The commercial is more entertaining if you picture all of them pantless. And also if you picture Gayle King munching on Oprah’s Frito-Lay pie.
