  1. EL Duderino Says:

    Yeah, the Dorito’s commercials have been consistently good

  2. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    darth one is cute with a good payoff. it’s definitely in my top five of the first half. I’m thinking that by the end of the game it’ll only be middle of the pack šŸ˜‰

  3. Gavinsdad Says:

    ^call me whatever you want, that type of chick does nada for me. (tho dready tour skanks with sideways upside down visors, miniskirts and skate sneakers seem to still cast a spell on me for whatever reason)

  4. willowed Says:

    Dude, I hear those Dorito commercials are made by regular people. Not ad exec’s.
    Every year they hold a fan competition. Best commercial gets the SB ad.

    I think I’m am pretty sure about that. I could be wrong.

  5. EL Duderino Says:

    How many super-hero movies will be coming this summer by the end of the game?

    2 thus far

  7. EL Duderino Says:

  8. EL Duderino Says:

    I’m glad Pittsburgh scored 10 unanswered points to keep it in reach.

  9. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    you should see some of the ones that didn’t get picked. there’s some good ones you can find online.

    holy crap. I can haz sony experia phone pleez??? I’d never get anything done if I had that phone.

  10. Admiral Ackbar Says:

    Hah! The halftime crew is SHITFACED right now!

  11. willowed Says:

    OK…call me slow, but I know Admiral Ackbar is someone’s alter ego.


  12. EL Duderino Says:

    Is it me, or does this BEP shit sound awful?

  13. EL Duderino Says:

    visually stunning

  14. Admiral Ackbar Says:

    This is just awkward.

  15. EL Duderino Says:

    Man, they sound just fn’ awful

  16. EL Duderino Says:

  17. EL Duderino Says:

  18. willowed Says:

    This is a fucking train wreck

  19. EL Duderino Says:

    Not sure if it’s the sound mix or what?

  20. willowed Says:

    at least they’re singing

  21. ThePigSong Says:

    visually that was a hell of a half time show, musically…gah

    I haven’t seen it yet but a friend of mine produced the Doritos commercial “Birthday Wish” – it’s a good one, I hope they get some tv time

    “reply all” was our favorite so far, followed by the VW Vader.

  22. Gavinsdad Says:

    If fergie threw out the comb and wore some DCs I’d do her.

    They have succeeded in making medley perfect music tho. Thank god for non pop music.

  23. willowed Says:

    They stole the body suit light outfits from a few cats on Phish tour.

  24. ThePigSong Says:

    I think they stole the glow-stick-man costumes from Phish shows – those guys deserve royalties

  25. EL Duderino Says:
