Video Game Armada’s top 5 Super Bowl Commercials 2013



Well this was quite a superbowl this year right? Power outages, secret hand signs to shadowy organizations, and nail biting ending? Yeah it was definitely more exciting than your average superbowl, which is more than I can say about the Commercials this year. I’ll be honest people, the only reason I watch the superbowl without my team playing is the entertaining commercials. Seriously why watch Football when you can sky crush players in the Crysis 3 beta. But hey the super bowl commercials are like best and the brightest of any commercial you would see normally because so many people are watching that superbowl. So they’re often flashy, impressive, funny, thought provoking, and all around awesome way to kill 90 seconds at a time. The Armada has even rated our favorites throughout the years, but this year, we only have five. I don’t know if it’s the economy fault or the fact that good ideas decided to take break this year but the majority of commercials were either tasteless, boring, or plain sucked. However we here at the Armada sifted through the garbage and found the ones worthy of being played over and over again because they’re great and, unlike their competition, actually made an effort. Enjoy:





5. E-Trade baby 2013



Well we all saw this one coming; the E-Trade baby is sort of the staple / mascot of SB commercials so not seeing him here would be weird. He’s only so low on the list because it not much of a thinking outside of the box type of commercial: he just explains the basics of finical fees while next to a pile of money. Well that’s not all the commercial does but it’s no ‘Milka what?!’





4. Morning Run



The Rock; world famous wrestler, semi-creditable movie star, and all-around entertaining guy. This time around his takes the role of good father as his three mutli-racial kids can’t eat their cereal because there is no in the house. So what’s the rock to do? Why chase down a milk truck while, at the same time, the world is suffering one problem after the next – will the rock get that darn milk truck? Let’s find out.







3. PSY’s Wonderful Pistachios



Ah PSY – will your crazy, hyper popularity never die. You dancing and then riding on a giant pistachio nut is still less weird than your actual Gangun Style music video, but in the same token just perfect for a Super Bowl Commercial, kudos.






2. Whisper Fight



Now that we know you would win in a fight between Goku vs. Superman (Thank you Death Battle), the next great conflict of our age has begun: which is the best part of an Oreo? Watch as a peaceful time at the library unfolds as this question is asked in ear shot.





1. Love Ballad



Well people M&M’s is quickly becoming the undefeated champions of Super Bowl Commercials, they took it last year and by gum they took in again this year. See in a previous commercial Red (the red M&M) found the love of his life, unfortunately she’s quite the chocoholic and only loves Red for his body. Red expresses is emotional conflict in song.




Ding! –– Gangnam style parodies


Welcome to a new segment called ‘Ding!’ (which is not associated with Bing), where we at the VG Armada adds on to a subject we posted on before, enhancing it, as it were. So what am I going to talk about today? Why Gangnam style of course. Yes people it is a international hit; I know it, you know it, YouTube’s knows it – and you know YouTube’s never wrong. So like most online darling music videos, parodies are bound to happen. Here’s some of our favorites, enjoy!



Klingon Style



So I bet you all think that humans are the only ones with ‘style’ in the Alpha Quadrant, but you are wrong. The warriors from the House of Comediva shows that Klingons are only feverent fighters but excellent dancers.



Kim Jong Style



Not to be outdone by their freedom loving counterparts (South Koreans), the new leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, created his own style music video (not really) to show why oppressive military dictatorships are the way to go.



Hongdae Style



Gangnam in GANGNAM STYLE is actually a place (or a district in Seoul rather) in South Korea. As such PSY is singing (and dancing) about how his hometown is a cool/happening place. However this parody vid shows that Hongik University, Hongdae for short, is also a cool/happening place as well.



Deadpool Style



How do you out crazy GANGNAM STYLE?  Why add Deadpool to the mix, of course!



Nintendo Style



It’s Mario doing Gangnam Style, my life is complete now.
