Super Bowl = Super Commericals!

Cowboy Fans may not be as quick to admit they will watch the upcoming Super Bowl. I, for one, won’t miss it! Not because I want to see either of the teams with the win but because I want to see the COMMERCIALS!!

Over the years, the Super Bowl has brought us some of the most creative and interesting commercials. I make a point to vote for my favorites online and watch the news to see who earned the Number 1 spot as a favorite.

I found a list of the Top 10 Super Bowl commercials ever at MSNBC at MSN. Check it out!

#10 Budweiser 1995 – 3 croaking frogs
#9 Xerox ‘Monks’ 1997
#8 Tabasco ‘Mosquito’ 1998
#7 Electronic Data Systems ‘Herding Cats’ 2000
#6 McDonalds "The Showdown’ 1993
#5 ‘When I Grow Up’ 1999
#4 Reebok ‘Terry Tate, Office Linebacker’ 2003
#3 E*Trade "Monkey’ 2000
#2 Coke ‘Mean Joe Green’
#1 Apple Computers 1984

The interesting thing is, Apple spent a cool $1-million on their add in 1984. It ran one time. If I had to pick one of these as my favorite, it would be #2. I absolutely LOVE that commercial!

Early release discussions about the upcoming commercials indicate that this is the year of commercials for the ULTIMATE FANS!! They plan to keep it light and fun. We have a while to go to find out for ourselves. As Feb. 3rd gets closer, more details will be released along with links where we can vote for our favorites! I will bring you the latest details on this next week! Be sure to stay tuned!!

Cowboy Fans may not be interested in the outcome of this game but we can certainly look forward to being entertained by advertisers everywhere!

I’ll blog at ya next week! ‘Til then – Have a good one!

    Thanks for the list of the commercials. Didn’t know that was available. But what isn’t available these days?

    HA, Tiff! Right! I found out about it several years ago while watching the news. It’s pretty cool to be able to replay your favorites & vote! I will share the link here when it goes up.
    This year, you will find me sitting in the living room floor with my teenage son. It has turned cold in Texas. I can’t see myself going out unless I just GOTTA! Brr! We will be staying warm, eating & organizing our NFL trading cards. 🙂
