Superbowl. I watch it more for the ads than I do the game. I never watch ads on a normal day--the miracle of PVR has saved me from that fate, but the big ads that are creative and entertaining are worth my time.

Pepsi, you deserve a beatdown. First off, why would you spend all that money to run 30 seconds in standard definition TV? The ads looked grainy and lame, and most of the other ads were in luxurious Hi-Def. Any P. Diddy? What has he done lately? Bzzzt. That would be "nothing."

Burger King - don't think you're off the hook either. Although your ad was in hi-def, the content was aweful. May you both realized your cash was poorly spent. Wuf.
