Volkswagen Has The Best Super Bowl Commercial

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

We’re big fans of Super Bowl commercials here at IF, and after watching the above, my jaw’s on the floor. Game over, man. Game over. The fight’s over before it even started. Hand Volkswagen the championship belt because they’ve turned in what will be the best commercial of Super Bowl XLV. That’s it. That’s the list. In fact, this might be one of the best of all time.

Hell, that kind of hyperbole worked for Cigar Guy and the Dwyane Wade/LeBron James picture, and it’s going to work here.

For those companies who plan on advertising in future Super Bowls, the gauntlet’s been dropped. Loudly.

Don’t Try To Save Darth Vader Penalties

The Dark Lord of Sith as been something of a fixture during the 2010 World Cup; well, at least his franchise has. First, there’s the Adidas Originals/Star Wars commercial mash-up that makes liberal use of George Lucas’ golden child. Now, we have a what appears to be a Mexican telecom offering their various digital services, while capitalizing on the popularity of the World Cup and the never-ending recognition the Star Wars franchise carries. All things being equal, if I had a master of the force in my lineup, it would never come to penalties. I’d simply camp him out in the midfield, launching those force-controlled blasts that would render the goalie useless.

If that fails, there’s always lightsaber-powered destruction as an ace-in-the-hole.

H/t to Guyism for the find.

Oh, and here’s Part 1, in case you are Star Wars completist.

Simply put, I fully support the addition of Darth Vader to any team I root for.

Ole Miss Wants Admiral Ackbar

Admiral Ackbar

The students at Ole Miss University are voting on a new mascot today, and there’s a groundswell of support for an unexpected nominee: Admiral Ackbar from Return of the Jedi. While the university has the final say on the new mascot — meaning Ackbar’s nomination will probably be ignored — that hasn’t stopped Mississippi’s students from trying to effect change.

The Ackbar movement even has its own site, as well as Twitter and Facebook profiles.

As indicated, the vote is taking place today, so if you are an Ole Miss student who wants to add some Mon Calamari flavor to your campus, make sure you make your check-marks heard.

The following is a show of support from a fan of one SEC school to another, and I hope the it brings the Ackbar movement so luck:

Bounty Uncollected

Hines Ward

About that bounty that wasn’t a bounty put on Hines Ward by the Baltimore Ravens — Your target is still at large. Very much so. Regardless of being hosed by instant replay officials, Hines Ward took the thrown gauntlet and ate you alive to the tune of:

107 receiving yards courtesy of 8 receptions.

The Force Is Strong In These Jerseys

Jedi Jerseys

There are times in a man’s life where mere words cannot describe what it is his eyes are seeing. The level of awesome (or evil for that matter) is so high and leaves such an indelible impression, the ability to articulate exits your body.

Welcome to one of those times.

Darth Kobe

Continuing our celebration of Kobe Bryant Blog Day, we present this offering:

To many opposing fans, this is probably a fitting, honest portrait of how they feel about one Kobe Bean:
