Default why did the super bowl ads suck so much this year?

here are a list of my potential reasons. Feel free to add to this list:

1. Companies try to hard to be funny
2. They can't determine which audience that they are truly trying to attract
3. 30/60 seconds aren't enough
4. The companies are already rich enough and don't care
5. The companies lack the resources

I also read the ad-o-meter, and was suprised to find that the budweiser ad with the crabs was the top rated. Personally, I didn't think that it was that funny. Also, the Kevin Federline ad was rated much lower than I thought it should've been

The Bud Lite commercial with the couple picking up hitchhikers was pretty funny. No other commercials were memorable at all.

The beer commercial were good. But I think the most overated one is the godaddy.com one, dumb and it was shown twice.

My favorite was the beer commercial where they slapped each other in the face. I don't know why I thought it was funny, I just did.

Superbowl commercials are overrated. Don't see the big deal with them.

yeah, you'd think since the price of them go up every year, the commercials would get better. what did they cost this year, 2.6 mill per 30 seconds?

A lot of them were very disappointing. A couple of them, I was like, ARE YOU SERIOUS? 2.6 mill for this crap.

ones that I thought were at least decent enough to put on the air.

Bud Light - where the fist bump is out and the slap is in
Bud Light - Paper, Rock , Scissors.
Taco Bell - Lions talking, one can't roll his R's
Bud Light - Carlos Mencia teaching class.

and my favorite one, don't know if it was just a case of too much alcohol or what,
but the Blockbuster one with the Rabbit and Guinea Pig abusing the mouse made me freakin' crack up. don't know why.

you can see them all on spotbowl.com

The Bud Light commercials were solid. The one where he nailed the other dude with a rock was pure gold.

That one was probably my favorite, all the beer ones were good. Although I'd have to say that the game was the best part. . . why do we care so much about SB ads?
