Super Bowl Sunday: Live-Blogging the Commercials

You may be asking yourself WTF is going on in that wacky 1970s Laugh-In-esque commercial above, starring Joe Namath and one incredibly frightening woman. Well, that commercial is the one that started it all, the era of billion-dollar Super Bowl spots, the most coveted 30 seconds of advertising on television.

Who could have known in 1984 when Apple ran its infamous Bowl commercial, probably the most famous television commercial of all time, that we'd all be living under the thumb of Steve Jobs 27 years later?

And who really cares about the game anyway? The only real reason to watch the Super Bowl is for the commercials. So tune in to Hair Balls Sunday as we live-blog the breaks and criticize the ads.
