<p>1. My wife's 15 year old cousin had joined the "Keep your hands off my mama, keep your hands off my Doritos" Facebook group by 9pm Sunday night. Apparently, that was a win!   </p><p>2. Betty White was the best of this year's "surprise tackle" ads. Don't know what it has to do with Snickers satisfying you, but it made me laugh.    </p><p>3. Apparently the Dove soap I've been using for the past couple of decades was for girls.     </p><p> 4. Back-to-back men in underwear ads? Really?      </p><p>5. I'm a Pepper, you're a Pepper, wouldn't you like to have a giant tongue? And midgets. Could you ask for anything more? I'm sorry. I don't want Gene Simmons anywhere near my soda.      </p><p>6. I found FloTV telling a guy to "change out of that skirt" to be in poor taste. Just crude, really. It's a shame because they did such a good job with the Will.i.am "Talking bout my Generation" remix—but I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth about the brand.       </p><p>7. Dodge. I watch a vampire show with my wife. Thanks for pointing that out.      </p><p>8. Is it just me or was the Metro PCS ad with the Indian guys completely racist?      </p><p>9. I believe Motorola just made the first masturbation reference I've seen in a television advertisement. Am I mistaken?     </p><p>10.  I think KGB got the most relative value out of their Superbowl spot. If you ask me what they did yesterday, I would have said "Who?" If you ask me tomorrow, I'll tell you that you text them to find something out.      </p><p>Of course, there was also Google on TV. But that's a subject for another blog post.
