Overwhelmingly, BlackBerry!Nearly 15,000 people took part in our reader poll of Super Bowl ads.
At 37 per cent, and with 1,244 votes, BlackBerry’s spot beat out the Dodge “Farmer” spot, which got 18 per cent and 594 votes. (We should note that a lot of voters came from CrackBerry.com, the BlackBerry fan web site.)
The Budweiser “Brotherhood” spot was also well-liked, with Doritos “Goat 4 Sale” and Audi’s “Prom” also scoring about 5 per cent.
From commenter Charlene Baker:
I found the ad for Ram Trucks using Paul Harvey reading “God made a farmer” very refreshing. It caught my immediate attention as I noticed all 7 of my party guests were focused on the ad. Everyone cheered for Ram when it was over. One guest said, “Did I just hear the word God in a Super Bowl commercial?” It made us want to run to the dealer and buy a Ram Truck!
The least favourites? Well, everyone else basically.
On Twitter, many were grossed out by the making out GoDaddy ad.
Others loved the Taco Bell “Viva Mas” spot.
Venables, Bell and Partners for Audi, Anomaly for Bud, Deutsch LA for Taco Bell, BBDO London for BlackBerry, and the Richards Group for Dodge all get kudos for outstanding creative work.
