Vince's Trophy Back in Titletown

The wife and I enjoyed the big game yesterday with some friends out at the Moose house, where we ate too much and watched just enough football to see the Packers put away the Steelers 31-25.  We enjoyed too the high-rent commercial spots that featured some cute animals (and insects) and some downright steamy scenes.

There were two that caught me off guard.  One was this Groupon ad that tried to wrench humor out of a difficult situation in Tibet.  What?  Tibetans in danger of losing their culture?  Let's eat!

The other was this ad for the Mini that asks viewers to "cram it in the boot" of the little car.  Is that a super-long sandwich he's sliding in?  Why is our contestant so uncomfortable with the question?

These two made my list of the tackiest ads.
