Things started off promisingly, with Bud Light's crotch-biting dog spot, wherein a yuppie teaches his dog to fetch Buds from a cooler and his neighbor trains a scrappier pup to retrieve the beer in a far more resourceful manner. It was also fun to see so many movie trailers for a change, from the rather hokey Van Helsing to the more impressive Troy and Hidalgo (hello, Viggo!). But to me, the ads mostly went downhill from there, with Bud Light's farting horse joke (am I the only one who didn't see the punchline coming from a mile away?) and that weird FedEx alien. H&R Block took a seemingly no-fail concept (tell me, who wouldn't want to own a Willie Nelson doll?) and ruined it with poor execution and a meandering script. And both Dodge (the monkey-on-the-back spot) and Bud Light (the "playa" monkey spot) proved that, contrary to popular belief, monkeys are not always funny.
