Super Bowl 2007 Ads Worst Ever

Sacha Zimmerman has a pretty fair rundown of the ads from last night’s Super Bowl, which have already been mercilessly savaged by the critics. My favorite of his summaries:

After head injuries and then a commercial that ends with sex in the check-out line of a grocery store, the good folks at Doritos would also like to remind you that they, too, care about black people. Especially black people who eat Doritos–on this very historic day.

He believes they “metastasized into an orgy of hype and promotion the likes of which we have never before seen” because of YouTube. Could well be. Regardless, they were bloody awful.

UPDATE: Steven Taylor and Dan Drezner offer their takes on the ads, with differing views on the political implications.
