The Super Bowl used to showcase the best of the ad biz. But Madison Avenue has grown as uncreative as Hollywood, judging from this year’s lame-ass commercials. Bridgestone’s “Killer Shark” ripped off The Hangover. CareerBuilder’s “Casual Fridays” thought men’s tighty whities were a laugh riot. Monster showcased a violin-playing “Beaver”. Budweiser ads really sucked. But all those Doritos ads made by aspiring filmmakers get my vote for the worst.
