Super Bowl Sunday's an epic spectacle: towering mounds of pigs-in-blankets, violent altercations over premium couch seating, some guy no one knows drinking your good gin... And of course, really expensive commercials: re-live them all at SuperBowl-Ads.com
SBA's a storehouse of ads from Super Bowls past -- hundreds of 30-second breaks from the most popular sporting event to ever distract you from the Bud Bowl. The bulk are from '98-'07, everything from perv-fare (Miller Lite catfight), to did-that-guy-play-in-NFL-Europa? fare (Terry Tate: Office Linebacker), to swan songs (Robert Goulet's Emerald Nuts), to hazy memories of defunct dot-coms (Lifeminders.com, OurBeginning.com -- which tanked after blowing $2.1mil on a spot about weddings. Weddings!). SBA also highlights six all-time classics, including Jordan and Bird's H-O-R-S-E contest, Apple's iconic "1984" spot, and Joe Namath getting "creamed" with Noxzema back in '73 -- an experience that, thirty years later, he tried to relive using Suzy Kolber's mortified face
For people super-focused on not watching the Big Game, SBA links to articles on upcoming '08 spots, like "Hyundai May Pull Out of Super Bowl" and "Audi's Super Bowl Ad Oozes Drama" -- though not nearly as much drama as the stranger spilling Tanqueray 10 all over the best seat in the house.
