Best and worst Super Bowl ads of 2009

Posted on

Advertisers spent up to $3 million for 30 seconds. Some were priceless, while others were creatively bankrupt.

The Best

CASH4GOLD
It’s sad when you sense celebs are doing ads because they need the money. When that’s the whole point, it’s hilarious.

DENNY’S
Showing the dangers of mixing Mafia business with a kiddie breakfast, Denny’s hit a grand slam.

DORITOS
The fan-created crystal-ball spot was a valentine to people who want to nail their boss in the groin (i.e., everyone).

CAREERBUILDER.COM
Maybe we were hypnotized by the repetition. Or maybe we subconsciously want to club a bespectacled koala bear.

The Worst

GO DADDY
Dorky dudes and hot, nearly nude ladies: Go Daddy goes to the same well every year, and always hits bottom.

CASTROL
Another year, another monkey gag. Can’t someone please train another animal to wear a jumpsuit?

SOBE
We didn’t think it possible to make the dancing lizards even more annoying. Yet lame 3-D technology sure did the trick.

TELEFLORA
Flowers berate a single woman’s looks: Ha-ha, that’ll teach her to be a stereotype rehashed by admen!
