David Beckham, Anthony Kiedis & More Shirtless Men of the Super Bowl

If there was one thread running through the Super Bowl last night – other than Joe Namath's coat – it was the astounding plethora of shirtless men, in commercials and otherwise. Not that we're complaining.

Here are our favorites.

Justin Bieber Partied on Skateboard at a Pre-Super Bowl Bash

Justin Bieber Partied on Skateboard at a Pre-Super Bowl Bash

So much for keeping a low profile.

Justin Bieber partied on wheels into the wee hours Sunday morning in a pre-Super Bowl bash in New York City, as the troubled pop star's skateboarding skills offered a surprise diversion to those who were there.

A rep for the 11th Annual Leather and Laces party, hosted by Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, tells PEOPLE that the Biebs showed up with friends and a skateboard around 2 a.m. before settling into a private cabana.

He asked if it would be okay to skateboard and was given permission.

He then surprised partygoers by hopping off the banquette and skateboarding across the floor as the crowd parted for him.

Super Bowl's Best Ads: Puppies & Horses & Muppets – Oh, My!

PEOPLE's TV Critic: The 8 Best Super Bowl Ads

Originally posted 02/03/2014 06:45AM

The commercials that aired during Sunday's Super Bowl to a large degree were already pre-broadcast. The big campaigns not only streamed online, but also preceded themselves with "teaser" versions.

As a result, their official arrivals tended to feel like a smallish baby dropped by a drooping stork. Then they were instantly viewed, discussed, graded up or down and made to run the gauntlet of social media.

In the future, everyone will be Carrie Underwood in The Sound of Music Live! for 15 minutes. It won't be pretty.

This year's Super Bowl ads didn’t send out any real ripples – nothing like 2013's oddly sensational Go Daddy spot with Bar Refaeli making out with a gratefully passionate nerd. In general, they settled for cute, if not always as cute as they were supposed to be. A Volkswagen ad that imagined German engineers getting wings ended with a proctological gag that stayed within good taste but never escaped the fact that it was a proctological gag.

Here are the ones I liked best.

Celebrating Every '80s Reference in That RadioShack Super Bowl Commercial

Originally posted 02/02/2014 10:25PM



The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past).

At only 60 seconds, the ad was an overload of nostalgic randomness; here's a breakdown of every '80s reference we spotted, in roughly the order of appearance:

Behind the Scenes at the Super Bowl, a Traffic Jam for the Ages

Originally posted 02/02/2014 07:20PM

Super Bowl XLVIII is taking place at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands, eight miles from New York City. There is only one way to make the journey by train: Take a New Jersey transit train to a station called Secaucus Junction, and then take another train from there to the stadium.

As you might expect, on Sunday, Secaucus Junction was very crowded.

The Simpsons Claims to Have Predicted the Super Bowl's Broncos-Seahawks Matchup

Originally posted 02/02/2014 04:00PM

It was one of The Simpsons's opening-act throwaway story lines, but now it's proved unintentionally prophetic.

In the comedy classic's 17th season premiere, "Bonfire of the Manatees," patriarch Homer Simpson loses his savings in a bad bet on a football match, which just so happens to concern the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, the two teams matched up in Sunday's Super Bowl.

In the 2005 episode, the Broncos ended up winning 19-14, to the consternation of Homer, who was forced to use the family home as a set for a pornographic film to pay off his gambling debt. (And that's only act I. Eventually manatees did get involved.)
