It would have been 10, but the Super Bowl ads were generally unimpressive this year as a whole (blame the economy or something!), but there were some exceptions. The one thing that was a little different this year, at least to me, was the insane barrage of NBC promotion. Of course the network that has the Super Bowl is going to promote its own content and everything, but is it always that much
self-promotion? It felt like every other ad was a Heroes
, MacGruber or that people-whose-asses-fell-off-watching-30 Rock
thing. Anyway, the list below is the best of the non-movie trailer-y/NBC content as we saw it. (See Moviefile for the best trailers
, and we're ignoring the NBC stuff completely.) Enjoy having to watch a commercial before watching a commercial! Yay capitalism!
