So, rather than watch the Super Bowl, I ate food and slept. In spite of my attempts to avoid the whole damn mess, however, I still wound up being forced to deal with the requisite oohs and aaaahs over the commercials. I'm not a big fan of commercials period--but Super Bowl ads are often especially problematic to me because they are well aware that they are appealing to the most base instinct of the macho drunk male getting it on with his macho drunk male friends (I read somewhere that more partner abuse happens during Super Bowl than any other time of the year).
That said--I'm not completely incapable of finding humor in commercials. The following was one of the more amusing (and less problematic) ones. Although I have yet to understand why a shot to the groin is still considered so dang funny.
Which commercials did you like? What commercials were too offensive to deal with?
