I liked some of the SuperBowl commercials. Ford had a commercial called “Roadhouse” (flash video), which ended with a funny twist, and the usual crop of Budweiser and Pepsi commericals were relatively entertaining, but none of them were up there with the greats of the past.
The pre-game music was dreadful but the halftime show was really good. Paul McCartney clearly enjoyed himself as he banged out some of his most memorable songs. After a couple of hits with the guitar, McCartney moved to the piano and unleashed an enthusiastic version of “Live And Let Die”, accompanied by a spectacular and well-timed fireworks display. The finale was crowd-favorite “Hey, Jude”, with the whole stadium joining in at the end. I can honestly say that it was one of the best halftime shows I have ever seen, and it made last year's performance look all the more ridiculous.
