Super Bowl

  1. Here’s How to Watch Today’s Super Bowl Commercials Without Watching the Dumb Super Bowl

    Football is the worst kind of ball.

    You may have noticed a common thread in today's Geekosystem posts. That thread, of course, is that football is boring. That's because it is. Commercials that air during the Super Bowl tend to be pretty good, and for years we've had to suffer through football to see them. No more. Here's how to watch just the commercials.

  2. Sir Patrick Stewart & Sir Ian McKellen Are A Little Confused About This Whole Super Bowl Thing

    I See What They Did There

    I don't know a lot about American football but I probably know less about the World Cup, or whatever. Talk to me about Quidditch and we're cool. Anyway, Sirs Stewart and McKellan are having a bit of fun with the Super Bowl here. I approve.

  3. British Supervillains Are 1000% Better Than Regular Ones, As This Jaguar Ad Shows Us [Video]

    It's because of the Revolutionary War, obviously.

    Like us, you've probably heard whispers around the Internet of Jaguar's Super Bowl ad, which features a bunch of British actors (Tom Hiddleston) talking about evil they are in a very suave and attractive way (Tom Hiddleston) and then getting our of helicopters like badasses and driving away in fancy cars. Oh, did we mention Tom Hiddleston is in it?

    God needed another 2,000 pound camel angel.

    We have so much to live for.

    As far as we're concerned, life is just one big intermission between Shark Week and The Puppy Bowl. Thankfully, Feb. 2nd is almost upon us, and Animal Planet has lots of ways for us to chase the winter blues away while we wait for the shameless celebration of all the things cute.

  7. Today in Geek History: Nabisco Introduces the Oreo

    In the distant future, when alien archaeologists dig through Earth's sediment and uncover traces of our glorious existence, they will inevitably unearth our most iconic product. They shall find the Oreo, the ubiquitous "chocolate sandwich cookies," which was introduced on this day in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company (aka Nabisco). That's right, Oreos are 101 years old. What did you do for its centenarian birthday last year?

  8. The Super Bowl Ad We Forgot: the One With a Warrior Princess

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    In my rush to remember all the Super Bowl ads from last night that were worth remembering, I forgot this Toyota commercial. It's got a pretty familiar plot of a genie whose wishes always have a bit of an ironic twist to them. Sort of a monkey's paw kind of thing. Except there's one particular wish in here that gets an "ironic" twist that we have entirely non-ironic positive feelings for. See if you can figure out which one it is. (via Think Progress)

  10. Here Are The Trailers You Missed If You Didn’t Watch The Super Bowl Last Night [Video]

    Didn't watch the Super Bowl? Not even for the commercials? We understand -- large men being paid huge sums of money to run into one another very, very fast isn't exactly everyone's thing. In fact, when we put it like that, it can even sound like a rather silly pastime. Or maybe, like yours truly, you watched the game on CBS's stream, and didn't see the big budget commercials the event is famed for, instead being subjected to that stupid Blackberry commercial like a bazillion times. Either way, you're short new trailers -- and some new footage, even -- from Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness. Worry not, though -- you can check them out below. We won't even make you sit through a half hour of blackout to see them.
