I think it is just disgusting how the superbowl has become one big day of drinking, sex and innappropriatenes. My husband has been dying for the day when his daughter would be interested in watching the game of the year with him. We sat down with food, a roaring fire and lots of beverages and told her how the big advertising companies were going to have their best ads during the game. We even went to YouTube and showed her some of the old ones that we thought were funny. However, we were watching the ads together, and it was TERRIBLE. Between the M&M commercial talking about it being “this kind of party” and took off his color coating (obviously clothing) was confusing to her. She asked what that kind of party was. We then had to fastforward through the always terribly vulgar GoDaddy commercials, and the flower commercial that seemed like it was selling prostitution. I thought the David Beckam ad was going to be about his ability or talent, but of course not, and we had to fastforward through that commercial as well. So by the end of it, my daughter liked the dog commercials, and that was about it. By the time we got to the half time show, we thought here we go, Madonna, our childhood star promised a clean show. We all got prepped for it, and come to find out they have taken the usually provacative Madonna and made her likable and somewhat clean, and then brought out Nikki Minaj and MIA, two vulgar female rappers to come in and do something to ruin the show. They are bumping and grinding and lifting their crotch flaps, and then flipping the bird. It disgusts me that the NFL has thrown so much money to make women feel apart of the experience, and yet they have geared almost all commercials and all shows in the Superbowl to the men, and ruin the experience for all.
And I would like to add that the commercials that have created all the buzz last night had NOTHING to do with sex, nudity or even crass humor. The number one commercial was the dog losing weight, the second was the commercial with a great message with Clint Eastwood, and the last one starred old cartoon characters. So when are the advertising companies going to take notice of what is really selling out there?
