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.

As Kermit the Frog recently noted, the Muppets have a long history with Lady Gaga. Mother Monster took the dapper amphibian as her date to the VMAs in 2009, and has even worn him as a fashion statement.
So, it wasn't a huge surprise that the "Born this Way" songstress was joined by the Muppets crew for a holiday-themed musical special that aired on ABC Thursday evening ... especially since Gaga is promoting her new album, ArtPop, and Kermit, Piggy and Co. star in the upcoming flick Muppets Most Wanted.
In case you missed the show, which featured guest appearances from RuPaul, Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kristen Bell, we've rounded up some of the most memorable clips below.

Jim Henson's partner in marriage and Muppets has died.
Jane Henson died at age 78 Tuesday at her Connecticut home following a battle with cancer, according to the Jim Henson Co.
She and Henson met in a University of Maryland puppetry class in the mid-1950s, and they became creative and business partners in the development of the Muppets.
The Hensons married in 1959 and had five children: Lisa, Cheryl, Brian, John and Heather. The pair separated in 1986, and Jim Henson died in 1990.

In the Internet age, it's harder than ever for celebrities to avoid the prying cameras of the paparazzi – and no one knows that better than Miss Piggy.
"Sometimes they get a little bit too close," the porcine diva told PEOPLE during a recent interview at the Beverly Hilton. "It is not like they catch my bad side, because I don't have one. So that is never the problem. The problem is being seen with the wrong guy."
Piggy's new movie, The Muppets, opened Wednesday, and though it's brought her back in the spotlight, the star says her promotional tour has been "grueling."
"I am telling you, I have never worked so hard in my life," Miss Piggy says.
