These commercials were easily the worst in history, showing a dumbing down and stupification of America. The LARKS have taken over! Sad to see.

Really confused as to what you expect from a commercial.

The dumbing down happens the other 364 days of the year when America is bombarded with fast food commercials with no thought behind them other than, "here fat man... shove another burger in your piehole", and the likes.

At least, during the Superbowl, they try to make them more entertaining, instead of an excuse to get up for a bathroom break.

But, again, if you're relying on commercials to educate people... um, Houston, we have a problem here.

And, FTR, most people watch TV to relax and unwind from a hectic, stressful day... not to be educated.

I like the commercial where the guy is playing football like Betty White until he eats a snickers and then he's back to normal. Watching Betty White and the other old guy get tackled was hilarious.

That "old guy" is Abe Vigoda.

I thought he was a hundred years old on "Barney Miller" 35 years ago...he'll be 89 next month.

I thought the commercials were junk, especially the Bud Light ads which are generally a hit or miss but they were a huge miss. They'll probably be even more junk next season.
