Time for the day after the Super Bowl commercial dissection to begin. Many of the commercials were predictable. The Naked M&M’s commercial was clever. The Doritos commercials were funny — especially the Sling Baby commercial where the grandmother slingshots the baby across the room to grab the bag. That commercial is currently ranked number one on USA Today’s Super Bowl Ad Meter.
But the commercial that got the biggest laugh from my family was for Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt. Watch:
What made it so funny for me was the totally unexpected headbutt by the actress, Jessica Blackmore. I figured she’d do something like turn the spoon toward John Stamos and flick the yogurt at him. When she went in for the headbutt — which you could almost feel — it was funny and in keeping with the fact that it was a commercial created for a football game. The John Butler Trio song "Zebra" was a great choice for the music, too.
Fooducate pointed out today that it’s unusual for a food that’s not a traditional junk food to be advertised so prominently at the Super Bowl. The blog also dissects just how healthy this yogurt is.
Everyone has his own sense of humor, so I can imagine that many of you disagree with me on the choice of funniest 2012 Super Bowl commercial. What was your favorite?
