Any opinions on good or bad ones. I thought that running of the squirrels was a funny visual, but went on a bit long.

30 seconds was a bit long? I liked the white guy wassup commercial. The parrot one is the funniest. But the running of the squirrels was the funniest by far. "To beat the squirrel you have to think like a squirrel."

If I repeated the same knock knock joke for 30 seconds, you'd understand. I just thought it didn't go any further than the original visual surprise. Funny, but not as funny as that cat wrangling commercial from last year(?).

Such high standards for TV commercials.

Correction - Super Bowl TV commercials. This is supposed to be about as good as they get. Whatever these are, it's all downhill from here until next year.

I liked the monkey E-trade commercial but I thought it a little cruel to be taking shots at the companies that went out business. These companies were stocks that many people were buying through E-Trade. So they were profiting from dotcom failures. But still funny. I like the squirrels but I think it will be considered a failure because I don't remember company name that commercial was for.

The Kasparov Pepsi commercial kind of funny. (Reminded me of the "Get out of here, Finchley" Twilight Zone.) At the very least, it wasn't that damn kid lipsynching again. I've never thought that was funny or cute (although she was good in those IFC commercials).

And I agree about the squirrels now that you mention it. I can't remember what it was for either.

Variations on that Wassup commercial are going to get old fast. That space thing was kind of funny, but enough of the Wassup already. The ETrade commercial with the old guy going all Matrix on the bank robber was kind of funny. Wish they hadn't ended it that it was a dream. Funny, not "great".

That Becker - whoa, a kickoff return for a TD...

Anyway, that Becker is totally in my face.

I liked the talking cows commercial for Cheese. That was good.

I think that's an older one. I like the Jack in the Box commercial, but no moreso than any of the others (that's not meant to come off as negative, just saying it's in line with the funny stuff they always do).

I didn't like the Wassup variation with the aliens. I think they should have run the parrot one again. I don't know if everyone has seen it and that's just about the funniest commercial I have ever seen. The squirrels didn't work once the health workers came in and it was a dotcom, but I don't remember which one.
