2011 Super Bowl Commercials: Previews Uninspiring So Far

Business Insider has a big YouTube library of this year’s Super Bowl Commercials. I’m not a big fan of commercials in general and think the connection of commercials to the biggest football game of the year is rather weird. But in the interest of being a good sport, I’m skimming through them now, and here are a couple of the more enjoyable ones:

-P- Hyundai re-imagines a world in which we still watch silent movies and ride around on huge turn-of-the-century-style bicycles.

-P- Audi has another teaser for its weird “Luxury Prison” series.

Elsewhere, there’s, uh, more babies talking to each other, a guy getting hit in the groin (ha ha!), and more car commercials suggesting that buying their product is an act of independent thinking and sticking it to the man … basically, the usual stuff. I don’t really care for commercials, but I’m open to having my mind blown by the best the world of advertising has to offer, and this batch didn’t really do it for me. The Audi Kenny G teaser is the only one I’ve really dug so far.
