Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The Super Bowl is a big night for the NFL and its fans, but some might say it’s an even bigger night for the companies who spend a lot of dough on the highly coveted commercial slots. Here are our picks for the best, worst, and most WTF commercials that aired last night. Which were your favorites and which failed to impress?
I love football. But sometimes, when watching games, I find myself thinking really girly thoughts that I try to keep to myself, lest I make every guy in the room roll their eyes.

Also, a piece of advice for the Peas: if you’re going to insist on singing a four-year-old hit — “I Got A Feeling” — you should at least update the lyrics to reference the current year and not 2008. Speaking of 2008, I have never been so excited to see Usher do the splits in all my damn life. I get that as a spectacle, this might qualify as “entertaining,” but given that my ears are still bleeding, I remain unimpressed. You? Keep reading »
