If you were one of the roughly 12.6 million viewers who tuned in weekly to the glittery chaos that was The X Factor — and if you weren’t, shame on you for getting Steve Jones fired – you might recall the occasional casual mention of a Super Bowl Pepsi commercial for the winner. The X Factor was all about subtlety. Anywho, Melanie Amaro’s prize commercial, “Kings’s Court,” has finally arrived, and it’s every bit as silly and garish as one would expect from the minds responsible for this. READ FULL STORY

Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has won three Super Bowls. He’s been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player two times. He’s handsome. He’s 6’4″. He’s hosted Saturday Night Live. He can wear his hair any way he wants. Between his salary with the Pats and his endorsements, he earned about $30 million last year. Also, he’s married to super supermodel Gisele Bundchen. You might think a guy like this doesn’t need your prayers, but you would be wrong. Bundchen reportedly emailed her close friends and family, asking them to pray for Tom when they hit their knees at night. “My sweet friends and family,” the e-mail began, according to the New York Post. “This sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl … So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday. Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)” READ FULL STORY
It’s been 12 days since Volkswagen unleashed “The Bark Side” and started building up anticipation for the sequel to last year’s beloved “The Force” commercial. With four days to spare until Super Bowl XLVI, the car company has released an extended version of “The Dog Strikes Back.” It’s one of three 30-second VW ads that will air on game day and features not only an adorably chubby pooch but also a final-act twist worthy of “I am your father!” Watch below.

In case you’ve had troubling visions of Regis Philbin sitting around the house twiddling his thumbs in the months since his final Live! show, you can stop fretting. The multitasking 80-year-old’s first television appearance since Nov. 18 is a pretty big deal, even if he has a small part. Philbin makes a cameo in a Pepsi MAX ad featuring a Coke Zero delivery man with a cheatin’ heart and a dry mouth. Watch the ad after the jump. READ FULL STORY
H&M may have set its David Beckham Bodywear Super Bowl ad to the Animals’ “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” but there is no room for misunderstanding in the 30-second spot. Message received, loud and clear: David Beckham is smokin’ hot. Point for the Swedish clothing chain’s use of band name as subtext. Nina Simone may have recorded the original, but as the camera sweeps over Beckham’s taut and tatted frame, we feel like…well…Animals. See the tease (and I do mean tease) below. READ FULL STORY
It was revealed last week that Matthew Broderick would be bringing back the world’s greatest class-cutter (not to mention the Sausage King of Chicago), the one and only Ferris Bueller, for a Honda ad that would run during the Super Bowl. It begged a lot of questions from fans of the 1986 John Hughes comedy classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Nearly 26 years later, what has our favorite troublemaker been up to? Did he finally get his own car? Did Honda simply not know what Bueller and his cohorts did the last time they were left to their devices with a car?
In the extended spot, now available online, a still fresh-faced Broderick embarks on a Ferris-like day of hooky escapades (crank calling, singing in a parade). It’s nice that Ferris no longer has to bum rides off of people, but he’s no longer the walrus — he just looks at them at museums. Watch the clip below. Chick-chicka-chicka. READ FULL STORY

If you were on the Internet today, you likely saw the news that ’80s movie hero Ferris Bueller — as played by Matthew Broderick and not the guy from the blissfully short-lived NBC spin-off series — will be returning via an advertisement airing during the Super Bowl. At least, that’s the impression left by the 10 second teaser released on YouTube today, in which Broderick-as-Bueller rips open his window shades and asks the camera “How can I handle work on a day like today?” Cue “chick-chicka-chicka” music and a title card sporting the same date as the Super Bowl, and a nation already pickled in ’80s nostalgia is instantly tantalized by the prospect of once more experiencing Ferris’ care-free snarkitude, if only in a 30-to-60-second spot for carbonated cola, or oddly flavored potato chips, or dubiously conceived web ventures.
Here’s the thing: This is something Ferris himself would never actually do. READ FULL STORY
