Did anyone get to watch all the Android and Apple ads at Super Bowl yesterday? Because GoogleChic and I didn’t. Despite all our efforts to get everyone at the party to focus on the TV during commercial breaks and keep the noise down, we could only watch the Sony PSP, Motorola Xoom, AT&T iPhone and Verizon iPhone ads. So we dug around the net and found the commercials that we missed. What we thought of them?
Sony Xperia Play: This phone would have been an awesome phone maybe ten years ago. Sony made two separate devices, a PSP and a phone. Who thought combining the two would take them half a decade and really, who cares about the droid to human evolution?
Motorola Xoom: You probably remember the preview that Motorola released before Super Bowl. The Super Bowl commercial had the same 1984 aura with the theme “Empower the People”. There is one guy who stands out amongst the rest of people who are in white jumpsuits and white headphones. GoogleChic, it appears to me that Motorola is acknowledging Apple’s place in tech history. The ad doesn’t say what Xoom can do better than an iPad 😉 Motorola Xoom is expected to cost $800 (that’s a steep $300 more than the iPad). Ouch, are you paying for that million dollar commercial?
Google Search: I think this is an old commercial but I actually like this one! The key is to focus on the product (not the robot, not the guys with the white ear phones) 🙂
AT&T and Verizon iPhone: We had covered these two ads earlier. It cracks me up every time I see AT&T and Verizon playing the iPhone tug-of-war 🙂

I’m at a loss for words. There are people who watch the Super Bowl for the game and there are people like us who watch the Super Bowl for the ads and we missed half of them!
You all know how much I like Angry Birds. How many of y’all caught the secret code in the Rio trailer? We at least caught the Rio trailer but I sure missed the code! Now that I know where to look it sure is a lot easier 🙂 (0:27 in the clip below).
If you want to know how to use the code, check out the video below.
P.S. What was y’alls favorite commercial? Mine was the Doritos ad. I still can’t stop laughing every time I see this!
