Super Bowl XLIII - Winner of Worst Commercial Ad 2009

The winner of the Worst Superbowl Ad in our humble opinion has to go to the “Pepsi McGruber Super Bowl Ad”. MacGruber, from the Saturday Night Live sketches, appeared in a sixty-second spot for Pepsi that aired during Super Bowl XLIII. It featured the character drinking all the Pepsi he could get on an illegal supply ship while trying to diffuse a bomb in fifteen seconds. Though he denies that he is sponsored by the product in the commerical, he admits that he legally changed his name to “PepSuber”.

Beside the fact that this Ad was just plain stupid! What is it with all of that camera movement. Did Pepsi pay so much for the commercial that they had to use a hand held camera and get all of that shaking. What Advertising genius thinks that all of that movement adds to the drama of the commercial. It just made me want to vomit. How about the guy at Pepsi who paid for this Ad! What was he looking at when he signed off on this garbage.

Runner-up for the worst commercial has to go to Teleflora who ran an Ad for the first time in the company's 75 year history. If we are lucky it will be another 75 years before we have to see another of their Ads. Talking flowers in a box that begin to insult a girl when she opens the box. Enough already with this crude attempt at humor. Crude humor is just plain "crude" and not funny.
