Super Bowl ads

If you wept like a baby while watching Sunday's Budweiser commercial featuring a squeezable Clydesdale horse, you weren't alone – several stars needed a tissue too.
The spot – which told the sentimental tale of a farm boy who raises a fuzzy-wuzzy foal – was one of this year's most memorable Super Bowl ads, and stars fessed up to being verklempt as they watched.
"And yes, as we've already established, the #Clydesdale commercial was the best ever! I cried. So what?" actress Sophia Bush shared Monday on Twitter.

The Super Bowl adstravaganza disappointed me this year. The spots, which sold for a reported $4 million per 30 seconds of airtime, were so lavish, so tricked up by CGI, so weighed down by stars, so tightly loaded to spring into a joke, they suffered from bloat.
With many of the commercials posted online and scrutinized even before the CBS broadcast, they were events unto themselves – visually and conceptually splashy, but often guilty of overreaching at the expense of the message.
This is true even of the ads I enjoyed:

This year's Super Bowl brought with it a host of new ads, including a revival of Ferris Bueller and several appearances by supermodel Adriana Lima. Our chief concern, obviously, were the ads featuring pets, and there were several noteworthy editions. From the sinister Great Dane featured in this year's Doritos spot (featured above) to the speedy French bulldog that took the Skechers baton from Kim Kardashian, here are our favorite Super Bowl ads starring animals.

The other shoe has dropped on Kim Kardashian: She's out, and the dogs are in.
Skechers, which featured the reality star in a sexy ad for Shape-Ups during last year's Super Bowl, will instead air a spot that features a French bulldog wearing Skechers' GOrun shoes, according to USA Today. The new kicks are part of Skechers' new high-tech line.
"Kim got us more attention than we ever dreamed," Skechers Fitness president Leonard Armato says. "We have to establish Skechers as more than a lifestyle company."

CAST: Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and ex-supermodel Cindy Crawford will appear in a 30-second commercial for Diet Pepsi scheduled to debut during the Feb. 6 Super Bowl broadcast, the New York Post reports. The soft-drink company and a rep for Combs would not confirm the scoop, though the ad reportedly shows Diddy en route to an awards show when his car breaks down and he is rescued by a Pepsi truck.
