Well obviously

The Streaking Sheep was my favorite Superbowl ad. I wonder if kids would think that one was funniest - not a good message to send your 9-year-old.

There were a few others besides the sheep that reached the level of greatness: the FedEx ad, the Young Clydesdale, the second Monkey ad. (Again, I'm wondering about what exactly Budweiser was saying with the Clydesdale ad though.)

Ads that were amusing, entertaining or okay, but not Superbowl quality - MacGyver, the ad where the guy says he has music for every occasion, the "magic fridge,' the one where Fabio gets old, the Dove self-esteem ad (shameless manipulation on the part of Dove, if you ask me - they're a beauty company, don't forget that), the Ameriquest "misunderstanding" ads, the Sharpie Pirate ad, the "Might as well face it, you're addicted to LOST" ad. THAT was fantastic if you're a fan of the show, but only if you're a fan of the show.

Ads that were just plain creepy, stupid or terrible: the awful pregnant albino monster H3 ad (someone will get fired for that), the Whopperettes, the Machete men/Emerald Nuts ad, the "beer motivates employees" ad, the Cadillac runway ad (does anybody look to runway fashion for coolness anymore? that's so 10 years ago).

What do y'all think?

Didn't see them - but am trying to get through on the USA Today link to see the Streaking Sheep... Thanks for the link.

I didn't like the cadi commercial either but I couldn't figure out why. I think you hit the nail on the head.
And yes, the H3-monster commercial was icky and it's sad because I think they were going for some sort of cute.

Ya know, instead of sitting and watching for the ads, I was constantly getting up and checking email or reading a blog...funny. Must check out Streaking Sheep though.
