So much is always made about the commercials in the Super Bowl, I decided to take the liberty and catalogue them real-time this year. Some of these figures do not reflect the ad itself, but the content (i.e., sex, apocalyptic, inclusion of aliens).

Totals: 88 commercials (by my tally):

cars - 21 (does not include insurance or cars.com ads)
nbc/ge - 19
sex - 9
beer - 6
coke/pepsi/doritos - 7
apocalyptic/terrorism - 7 (NOTE: all apocalyptic themed ads were before halftime, and this count does not include the clint eastwood (i originally thought it was charlton heston)) ad about america's demise)
movies - 7
aliens - 5
nfl - 5
chinese guy bathing in gold coins - 3 (all nfl commercials)

there were a number of ads implying health issues, often making light of them (urinary, gastrointestinal, weight, etc) and otherse involving the TSA embarrassing a male passenger for a sex toy, and a car commercial with a gen-eg robot baby and talking about "reinvented rain" and how it makes you skinny.

Here is the entire nights advertisement description, with some embedded editorial:

the one with the dog running in sketchers was funny

avengers looks awesome

coke ads were disjointed and ineffective, they need to fire the ad agency

I'd be curious to see how much traffic godaddy got after their ad, lol at the "website content not rated" tag. classic warning that is really a temptation

over all really boring year for the ads

oh, and that was clint eastwood. lol

I remember last superbowl watching cowboys & aliens trailers, a supervolcano erupting, etc.
I was expecting more of an alien presence this time around, and we got it.
Though it might be like them to just feed it to us,
BUT, what with the Madonna illuminati ritual,
I see it as more subliminal feeding to "get ready for it."
The 2012 chevy commercial made me rofl.

They know 2012 is in the back of everyone's heads. There's a good chance they're just exploiting it.
But hey, if everything IS going to be changing, WHY NOT capitalize on it while they got the opportunity?

I was actually very disappointed in the commercials this year.
There were only a couple that I thought were good.

I'm going to go out on a limb and call Act of Valor a full-on propaganda film. Good Lord, it couldn't be anymore obvious with it's film style being eerily reminiscent of GoArmy.com commercials.

The Audi vampires commercial gave me a good belly laugh. A pretty funny commercial. The GE bit that included Budweiser and all that jazz was just nauseating.

Good call pointing that out, the only part I didn't watch was the halftime show, though I saw the first minute, seemed like these guys in viking or roman attire?

Nice coverage! Except the first car commercial was for Chevy Silvarado not Toyota. Not that is matters much...
I also liked the Vampire Audi commercial. The rest...meh...

Op...you logged all this. It begs the question why? What does it all mean?

Best spot was the doritos one where the dog paid the owner off for witnessing him burying a cat

Lol
