Snickers Super Bowl Ad is a Winner

Here’s the Snickers Super Bowl ad that is probably one of the company’s best and funniest.

GrubHub Super Bowl Ad

Put down that phone right now if you know what's good for you. This Super Bowl commercial says you should order food the easy way through GrubHub for free. Click, click, food.

Halftime at the First Super Bowl

Finally!

KFC Philippines is taking the next step toward the evolution of the Double Down with the new Double Down Dog. The dog is made with a fried chicken breast patty that's wrapped around a hot dog. I want one

Domino’s Sriracha

Apparently Dominos now offers a Sriracha pizza … and “you’re going to suffer and enjoy every moment.” So it's just like all their other pizzas.

Special Super Bowl Ad Previews

 

Go Daddy Ad Upsets so Many People That it Won’t Run During the Big Game

 

 

Okay … I used to be a tree so I’m not real fond of dogs. That being said, this Go Daddy ad made me lol. Seriously … it’s funny. BTW, note the driver of the truck near the end of the ad … its Danica Patrick.

But it upset so many others that it has been pulled and will not run during the Super Bowl. Groups felt that it promoted puppy mills. The ad is a parody of this Budweiser ad from last year’s Super Bowl.

Favre and Carve is Funny

Here’s a full length version of Wixom’s big game commercial featuring Brett Favre, Emmitt Smith, Terrell Owens and others.

Kardashian “Save the Data” is Funny

This T Mobile ad premiered on Conan O’Brien’s show this week and will be featured during the Super Bowl. Nice to see Kim make fun of herself.

 

 

Kia Super Bowl Ad with Pierce Brosnan


Here is Kia’s Sorento Super Bowl XLIX 2015 commercial, “The Perfect Getaway” with Pierce Brosnan.

Corvette Wednesday

Below are some vintage Corvette ads, and Corvette pinups (Above is a photo of Dale and Leslie’s C7 Corvette from their Route 66 trip last summer.)

I sort of took off from blogging today.

Old Heineken Ad is Still Sort of Funny

 

Here’s a funny foreign Heineken ad from a few years ago featuring a well-known American TV and film personality.

The TSA Found 2,212 Firearms in Carry-Ons Last Year, and Most Were Loaded

 

According to the TSA, the number of people trying to bring firearms through airport security is going up every year.

In 2014, a record 2,212 firearms were seized at the nation’s airports. Eighty three percent of those were loaded!

That’s a 22% increase over 2013, when 1,813 firearms were taken from travelers’ carry-ons. The TSA says the number of firearms seized at airport security has been going up almost every year since 2005.

Airports with the most gun activity include:

1. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW): 120
2. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL): 109
3. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX): 78
4. George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH): 77
5. Denver International Airport (DEN): 70
