I finally got this refunded. Again, my bad for not considering a tie.

this is ridiculous

IKnowStuffNItMakesUMad   •   Thu Feb 10 2011 at 10:12am PST

can you process the refund? i suck at this and need $$$

I’d love too; but I can’t get to the ‘refund’ slot on the Admin drop down. There is an open box in the way that makes my mouse cut out. I have asked Admin to refund it. But, that was Monday. I’ll ask again.

Unfortunately there was a tie between the Bud Light commercial where the dogs serve the guests and the Pepsico/Dorito’s dog gets the chips ad: http://www.usatoday.com/money/advertising/admeter/2011/super-bowl-ad-meter/43271432/1

Unfortunately, I did not define ‘something else’ to include a tie; so, I must refund. Sorry about that folks. Mea culpa.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t even think that was the best Dorito’s ad. I vote for the licking sniffing guy! But, what’s that tell you about me?

But, my favorite ad of the night was the Bridgestone beaver pays back ad.

Eminem’s Detroit was cool too. And that finished 44th for God’s sake. Guess I am no longer the target demographic. Further proof of which is that I thought that was the crappiest halftime since Justin and Janet had their wardrobe malfunction. Black Eyed Peas without a band and editing was exposed for all its flaws. They can’t sing worth a damn.

Would you be including the Pepsi food division as a Pepsico product? Pepsi owns Frito-Lay (Lays, Doritos, Fritos) so it is conceivable that Doritos might have a good commercial.

Absolutely. They also own Gatorade, btw.
