  1. Controversial Super Bowl Coke Commercial Adds Klingon; No Response Yet From Space Racists

    Great Moments in Advertising

    If you somehow managed to miss the latest instance of Racists Being Racist About Things, A) congratulations, I envy you, and B) this video will require a bit of explanation. It's a spoof of Coke's Super Bowl ad, which featured "America the Beautiful" being sung in different languages. Racists objected to it, because America is a country founded on the principles of equality, freedom, and that people who don't speak English are worth less than people who do. Stephen Colbert did an excellent takedown of the "controversy." And now GarlicJacksonComedy has given the video a geeky twist. No word yet from Morse Code-phobics, a group just as ridiculous as people who think Spanish shouldn't be spoken in a Coke ad.

    Ask a Muppet

    For their Super Bowl spot, Muppets Most Wanted decided to keep the twitter review thing going a little bit longer. I was hoping they'd go for a musical number. Shucks. (via /Film) Previously in Super Bowl Ads

    where does he get those wonderful toys

    Goldieblox, a favorite of ours on The Mary Sue for how it encourages the creation of engineering toys for girls, beat out 15,000 competitors to get their very own 30-second Super Bowl spot courtesy of Intuit’s Small Business Big Game contest. Here's the result. GB, you got permission to use the song this time, right? (via: Geeks Are Sexy, Forbes) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  4. Woman Uses GoDaddy Super Bowl Commercial To Quit Her Engineering Job And Do Puppetry Full Time

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Full disclosure: I didn't watch the Super Bowl. That being said, I am doing a bit of catching up on the commercials to spin out of it. You might be familiar with web hosting company GoDaddy's usual approach to marketing. Turns out, they decided to go in a different direction this year. And it's surprisingly positive.

  5. J.C. Penney Pulled a Burlington Coat Factory and Pretended To Drunk Tweet Last Night

    Toughdown, Seadawks!

    What do you get when you combine a boring Super Bowl game with too much alcohol? Lots of drunk tweeting, of course. But you tend not to see corporate brands publishing typo-ridden messages to their thousands of followers -- until last night, of course. And it was all fake.

  6. Patrick Stewart Celebrates His Team’s Super Bowl Win With One-Armed Push-Ups, Bossing Wil Wheaton Around

    And All Was Right With the World

    I know this may be difficult to believe, but the best part of Sir Patrick Stewart's reaction to the Seahawks thumping the Broncos at last night's Super Bowl isn't the 73-year-old thesp rocking a one-armed push-up. Oh no. The best part happened when Wil Wheaton showed up:

  7. All the Winter Soldier Trailers You Can Shake a Shield At

    Excelsior!

    Somehow, during our annual eat unhealthy food and talk over the television party, I entirely missed any advertising acknowledgement of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so I'm glad to see that the internet preserved everything for me, from the mournful solo violin playing our national anthem, to the full trailer itself, to the slightly different UK trailer. Additional thoughts: Black Widow is awesome. When do the Falcon and War Machine get to high five, or at least go out for coffee to chat about caring for their emotionally damaged white best bros?

  8. Here’s the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer Teased During the Super Bowl [Video]

    Maybe this super cold, snowy winter is just intense viral marketing for this movie?

    "Nerds" and "people who like football" aren't entirely mutually exclusive, but I'm guessing that some of you may have missed the new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that was teased during last night's Super Bowl. A short teaser with the National Anthem in the background played and then directed viewers to this one.

  9. Our Favorite 2014 Super Bowl Ads Both Aired and Unaired [Video]

    Great Moments in Advertising

    Whether or not you care about the Super Bowl, you probably know that it marks the airing of some of the best commercials and that companies spend a lot of effort and money to make an impression. We've collected our favorite Super Bowl commercials as well as a couple commercials that won't be aired during the game but are clearly related to it.  From Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial to the Muppets being awesome, there's a lot to love here.  On a related note, if you're going to watch the Super Bowl and you see any gross and sexist ads, you can always tweet about them with the hashtag #notbuyingit to tell the advertisers you're not interested in the way they sell things. And hey, if you were only going to watch for the ads, accept this as your excuse to spend your day doing something else. Commercials start after the jump!
