Super Bowl ads not so super

ASSOCIATED PRESS

"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.


WE AGREE WITH THIS GUY: Our take on the Super Bowl ads can be summed up in one word: underewhelming. As this critic says, Sunday night's ads were either cartoonish, sappy or just plain dumb. Good thing the game was interesting. (RL)

LIGHTEN UP, ALREADY: The New York Times review of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's half-time show was way too serious. Note to the Times: Springsteen was having fun. You should try it. (RL)
