In the ever-evolving spectacle that is the Super Bowl, where titans clash on the gridiron, another fierce competition unfolds during breaks – the battle for the most memorable and impactful commercials. From the iconic “Mean Joe Greene” Coca-Cola spot in 1979 to the extravagant productions of today, Super Bowl ads have become a cultural phenomenon, leaving an indelible mark on the collective memory of viewers. Coca-Cola even remade the classic “Mean Joe Greene” commercial with a twist featuring Troy Polamalu in this Coke Zero commercial from the 2009 Super Bowl.
These days, there are a handful of websites that vow to stay on top of the behind-the-scenes chatter about upcoming Super Bowl ads.
For example, Chiff.com is fairly well respected for this.
There’s no doubt about it, Superbowl commercials are hot, Hot, HOT! (We even blogged the commercials in real-time one year.)

If there is ONE thing I like… it's C H A N G E! The four seasons and major holidays are my favorite times of the year to recharge — and redecorate. I mostly like to share frugal DIY ideas for seasonal home decorating and party planning (for both, indoors and outside). Because who doesn't enjoy entertaining at home?! But even if you don't host many parties, I think you'll appreciate my DIY hacks and clever ways to decorate your house for the major holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Because those are the times when people tend to have the most visitors and overnight houseguests.
