Bud Light’s Super Bowl Commercial Featuring a Real-Life Game of Pac-Man

bud-light-pac-man

Bud Light, in their endless quest to get you to drink their diet beer-like beverage, has gone old-school with their #UpForWhatever campaign, creating a real-life game of Pac-Man.

The new commercial, that will run sometime during Super Bowl XLIX, features a bar patron just looking to score a beer. What the unsuspecting drinker doesn’t realize, is that he’ll have to earn his Bud Light by collecting power pellets and dodging giant ghosts.

His reward… minor internet fame, a shiny new Bud Light, and possibly a giant piece of fruit to take home for a snack. Please watch this…

A Cheesy Love Story, The Crowdsourced Doritos Ad They’d Rather You Not See

doritos-commercial

The Doritos Super Bowl Commercial contest is upon us. Crowdsourced commercials, made by aspiring filmmakers and comedians, are saturating your YouTube and Facebook feeds as we speak, vying for your votes.

Sum of Us starts out with the same comedic zest and Doritos love that we tend to see from other entries. This commercial however, although thoroughly awesome, eventually squelches our notion that Doritos are made from unicorn tears and horse whinnies.

Now, please put down the Doritos and watch the video below. Then you can find out more about the Sum of Us cause here.

Make Any Food Appropriate For Your Super Bowl Party, Just Add Stitches

ss_header

Have you ever noticed that most Super Bowl party food ideas are nothing more than stuff made to look like little footballs? Well, we’ll let you in on a little secret… Adding a few well-placed lines to any food, will help it fit in at a Super Bowl party.

So, don’t stress over making your Super Bowl party food as football-centric as possible. Serve whatever you want, just add football stitches. It’s simple… One long line, and then 3-4 perpendicular lines across.

Your Super Bowl party guests will feel festive, and appreciate your effort. Regardless of the actual lack of thought on your part. Enjoy the game.

It’s already oblong and brown. Add stitches, and you’ll have the footballiest of football foods. Never mind that it’s still a meatloaf.

 

Rice_p1160004Rice

If you need a go-to and inexpensive starch for the day, consider whipping up some rice. Already sort of football-shaped, you’ll need a steady hand, a magnifying glass, and the patience to do a few thousand sets of stitches.

Sure, Buffalo wings are already synonymous with football and parties. Now, they can be even Superbowlyer with stitches. No need to cook… If you can pick up a phone and place an order, awesome football food is now just a few straight lines away.

A tray of lasagna is easy to make, and would be a perfect way to feed a few hungry football fans. Although, lasagna isn’t necessarily considered a football party food, a few well-placed stitches will solve all that.

Frozen Burritos

Running out of time to cook, or you’re just plain lazy? Grab a few frozen burritos and pop them in the microwave. There’s a good chance that your guests are already fans of burritos, and some stitching will help them forget that you didn’t really give this party much thought.

There’s usually no place for flaky French pastries at a Super Bowl party. However, if you head down to your grocery store’s bakery section, you could pick up a few croissants. Add some stitches, and your guests will forget that they’re now eating something they’d usually find at an Oscar party.

 

RamenRamen

Everyone will love ramen as a football party meal… Especially if you have some broke co-eds coming over. Just draw some sriracha lines on your instant noodles, and guests will be slurping away in-between giggling at the commercials.

Happy Super Bowl, everybody. And, you’re welcome.
