    I think I remember seeing that ridiculous pets.com sock puppet!

    I wonder what Fox thinks of that Rooney commercial where he loses his towel running out of the sauna? If they thought the GoDaddy ad was a wardrobe malfunction, I bet they'd faint over the Rooney one!

    AdJab's picks: best Super Bowl ads

    Funniest Ad
    Both Ameriquest ads, the tazer one and the one with the guy murdering the cat.
    Runner up: The FedEx ad with Burt Reynolds and the commercial with Cindy Crawford and Carson Kressley both lusting after a guy who was drinking a Diet Pepsi.

    Sexiest Ad
    The Tabasco bikini ad.
    Runner up: Watching the Tabasco ad a second time on TiVo. Sorry, GoDaddy.

    Best Animal Ad
    The Camry ad with the talking dog and the $199/month "leash". People liked it more than the other animal ads, but there wasn't a lot of competition for this one.
    Runner up: The cockatoo defending the woman at the bar by Bud Light.

    Best Use of Fictional Characters
    Mastercard's "priceless" spokescharacters having dinner with Mr. Clean doing the dishes.

    Worst Use of Fictional Characters
    Marvel comics characters special effects are wasted in a Visa check card ad. Mastercard trumps Visa.

    Biggest Waste of Money
    McDonald's "Lincoln Fry," although the second spot was funnier. This wasn't the worst overall ad, but we expect more from McDonald's.
    Runner up: CareerBuilder.com. The forgettable monkey ads weren't impressive. Anyone could have come up with them.

    Most Forgettable
    The one by those counter top people. We didn't know who they were before the Super Bowl and we still don't know who they are afterwards. I copied their name and it was gone before I could paste it in here. Thank you though for putting Dennis Rodman in a bathtub.

    Worst Overall Ad
    The Ford truck ad that shows their trucks in a parking lot are tougher than a gang of bikers that intimidated a family that was driving on a highway. What?
    Runner up: This was the closest one: MBNA having Gladys Knight play rugby. It was like they signed a contract for the slot, then realized a few days ago that the Super Bowl was this weekend.

    Best Celebrity in an Ad
    Brad Pitt going out for a six pack of Heineken. It had an unearthly feel, like it was too cool to compete against funny Super Bowl ads. It was like watching Blade Runner. Very serious.
    Runner up: Burt Reynolds in the FedEx ad. Although it seems like it could have been any celebrity, Burt did his part well.

    Best First Half Ad
    The FedEx/Kinkos ad where Burt Reynolds gets a groin kick from a bear. It made fun of Super Bowl ads and came off as really clever.
    Runner up: The Bud Light airplane jump.

    Best Second Half Ad
    The Ameriquest ad where it looks like the guy is murdering his cat. Even people who hated Ameriquest's tazer ad loved this one.
    Runner up: The hot Tabasco ad.

    Best Overall Ad
    Both Ameriquest ads, the robbery/tazer and the cat murder. Unlike the Oscars, comedies can win the top prize here.
    2005 Superbowl Ads

    Personally, I thought most of them were lame (like the game itself). The cockatoo was dumb. The one with the cat, the sauce, and the knife was kind of funny.

    it sucks that most users attention spans or focus when it comes to commercials can only be drawn by using scantly dressed females, sex, drugs, etc...

    I am glad this years superbowl was "tame" compared to years past. It needed to be. Things have been getting raunchier and raunchier every year, its time to slow the crap down.

    I thought the commercial where the airplane pilot dives out of the airplane for beer was pretty funny.

    Well, considering that Go Daddy is being talked about at all, sounds like they made the right call, whether the commercial was accepted or not. In fact, the "controversy" helps with name recognition as well.

    Go Daddy will definately get more exposure from the second ad not being shown than it would have from showing it.

    It almost seems like someone at Fox was confused and didn't realize that if the second commercial was rejected that they did want to show the first one twice.

    An article about GoDaddy's pulled ad made the front page of Yahoo today.

    Haha, that's awesome. Sue someone for not giving you publicity, and you get a lot more. (And people viewing Yahoo sounds a bit more targetted than people watching the SuperBowl, but that's just my thoughts.)

    It is quite ironic, then, that when the big day came, one of the 30-second spots they did intend to be shown really was cancelled.

    In fact it is doubly ironic, as the entire campaign centers around the ficticious story that GoDaddy had an ad that was rejected. So the fact that they did end up having an ad rejected sort of makes the campaign so much more effective.

    No, they had a different 30-second commercial up before Superbowl Sunday. On Sunday, they took down the rejected commercial and put up the web-only 2 minute one.

    And she was in the Howard Stern studio this morning and Bob was on the phone with them.


    So far, they got their bang for the buck I say.

    I'm guessing they got that before the ad even aired - likely during casting
