QOTD: The Most Superb of All?
Yesterday was, in addition to being an excellent palindrome, a pretty big day for sports. With untold million being thrown around by companies vying for attentive eyeballs, our own Chris Tonn offered a roundup of the various and sundry Super Bowl cars ads, leaving us with one questions: what was your fave?
Hyundai seemed to score a touchdown with a good many on the internet with their Smaht Pahk ad, highlighting the Sonata’s ability to worm its own way in and out of a parking spot. It even spurred a MA cop shop to get in on the action.
Quick remindah, that even if your cahh is equipped with smaht pahk, an offisah will give you a ticket if you pahk.

Your author enjoyed the Jeep ad, which latched on to the fact Super Bowl fell on Groundhog Day, dragging Bill Murray out of mothballs to go for (several) spins in the new Gladiator.
How about it? Which of this year’s Super Bowl ads — heck, let’s throw it open to past years, too — was your pick of the litter? Actually, if we’re permitted to go back in time, I’m absolutely selecting the Chrysler 200 ad from a few years ago. That was a great commercial, even if the car itself was somewhat wanting.
