The Soapbox: Katy Perry’s Halftime Show Was Everything It Should Have Been

The annual Super Bowl is an homage to all things American, like male athleticism, geographically-based loyalty, bar food and corporate sponsors. The event also bookends one of the musical events of the year, the halftime show to end all halftime shows. The show is always a spectacle, speaking to both the limitless budget of the…

Steven Tyler Did His Best Johnny Depp This Weekend

A lot of questions will surround today about the goings-on of last night’s football match, many which will be unanswerable: Should Pete Carroll have wasted a play throwing a ball on 2nd and 1? Was this all a Roger Goodell conspiracy to keep Marshawn Lynch away from the media? Did Julian Edelman spend the majority…

We Are All The Shark On Katy Perry’s Left

The Super Bowl happened. Tom Brady and his friends won. Missy Elliot performed a very enthralling medley of her hits while Katy Perry flounced around in a sparkly, oversized sweatshirt.  And, during “Teenage Dream,” the one Katy Perry song I don’t really mind, two men in shark costumes danced a tightly-choreographed routine while surrounded by…

WTFootball: Here’s How Your Favorite Internet Writers Think Super Bowl XLIX Will Go

People tend to think that your fearless Frisky staff doesn’t care about football with the same fervor that we care about, say, black honey lipstick, but that is only partially a lie because you probably forgot about a little thing called the Halftime show (also, commercials) (also, two out of six of us really do…

How To Throw A Super Bowl Party In Any Amount Of Time

The Super Bowl is here, and everyone is rejoicing because it means they can watch ads, puppies, grown men playing a sport that will eventually kill them and Katy Perry. If you’re going to a Super Bowl party, awesome. It’s nice to have friends, right? If you’re not, fuck the haters, and throw your own.

Super Bowl Halftime Performances Of The 2000s, Ranked

Some watch the Super Bowl for the sports. Some watch it for the ads. Most watch it for the halftime show, that great spectacle of money and talent both perceived and actual. I love the Super Bowl for all of it. I like football, even though I recognize that it can be very, very bad.

PETA Made Me Do It: The 7 Types Of Sexist PETA Ads That Turned Me To Meat

Remember all of those GoDaddy ads that featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick fake-stripping? PETA had no problem with those. Those were fine. But once GoDaddy created an ad that featured a woman selling a puppy on a GoDaddy-hosted site, A LINE WAS CROSSED. Of course, PETA’s rationale for their objection was as thin as their…

Here’s Kim Kardashian’s Selfie PSA Super Bowl Ad

Kim Kardashian’s selfie game has been on lock for quite some time, so it’s refreshing to see her acknowledge their glory in this Super Bowl ad for T-Mobile. The 30-second PSA warns viewers against wasting their precious data on anything other than viewing the selfies she so carefully and dutifully makes for her fans. The…

Frisky Rant: You Can Follow Your Dream Without Quitting Your Job In A Super Bowl Commercial

First, let me say that I didn’t watch the Super Bowl for a couple of reasons: 1) I don’t like watching football, even though I’ve tried, and 2) I’ve discovered that it’s the absolute best time to run errands in New York City. No lines! I did, however, see the Go Daddy “I Quit” commercial

Superlatives: 2014 Super Bowl Commercials

I don’t know much — or care much — about football, but I know enough to say that last night’s Super Bowl was a major letdown. For Broncos fans especially, of course, but watching one team get tarred and feathered is eventually boring for everyone. In between watching the Seahawks wipe the floor with Sad…

Super Bowl Sunday Sex Is Unlikely, So We’re Proposing “Makeup Sex Monday”

Newsflash: Super Bowl Sunday is not a good day for sex. The entire day — and weekend, really — is reserved for football, beer, hot wings and lots of yelling at the TV. Do yourself a favor, and start to accept the fact that you’re not getting it on today.
