Not every Super Bowl spot was considered a touchdown. Watch HollywoodLife.com’s picks for the night’s five most forgettable fumbles.
The biggest companies in the world dropped millions of dollars for a 30-second spot during Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 — and, oh boy, did some of them totally waste their money! HollywoodLife.com already listed the eight best Super Bowl commercials of the night; so now let’s turn our attention to the evening’s biggest stinkers.
GoDaddy.com: ‘Bar Refaeli’s Big Kiss!’
You may have noticed this ad appeared on both our best and worst lists, so allow me to explain: While I enjoyed the commercial’s gross appeal, most people apparently just found it gross. And not at all appealing. It turns out people have a hard time downing their favorite Super Bowl snacks while watching Bar Refaeli suck face with a chubby ghost.
GoDaddy.com: ‘Get Off Your Duff!’
Just as Dorito’s appeared twice on our list of best commercials, so too does GoDaddy.com appear twice — on our worst list. Maybe it was the cliché “men are dumb, women are annoying” undertone, or maybe I just don’t understand why Danica Patrick keeps happening, but this commercial was just really terrible. And it tried so hard.
Coca-Cola: ‘Coke Chase’
The only thing more hyped than Beyoncé‘s halftime performance was this year’s Coca-Cola commercial — and what a let-down it turned out to be. Who really cares which random, nameless character won the “Coke chase?”
Volkswagen: ‘Get In. Get Happy.’
This year’s Volkswagen ad got a lot of attention, even before airing Feb. 3, for its arguably offensive concept: a bunch of white idiots pretending to have Jamaican accents. Offensive or not, this commercial just wasn’t funny.
