Another Super Bowl has come and gone and once again the actual game was an after thought compared to all the other hoopla surrounding the Super Bowl. This one was never even close with a final score of 43-8
It might just be me, after all I am the author of a blog about puppies. However, did you notice this year that the puppies have not only been participating in the Puppy Bowl, but have also taken over the Super Bowl commercials?
Lets take a look at two of my favorite Super Bowl commercials this year:
The CarMax Slow Clap Commercial
All I have to say is “Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!”
Make sure to watch this one to the very end. If you don’t then you’ll be wondering what the heck it has to do with puppies.
Go CarMax! Way to realize that us puppy folk want to see puppy versions of everything from Awesome Websites to Super Bowls to Commercials. If you missed it everyone should watch the puppy version of the CarMax Slow
Clap Bark Commercial.
Budweiser “Puppy Love” Commercial
This one had me at “Warm Springs Puppy Adoption”, but that was just the beginning of a commercial that will bring a tear to your eye…happy tears 🙂 Lets watch!
I loved the Budweiser commercial and glad they were able to promote puppy adoption. While we love Labrador Retriever puppies (they’re all over this site) I think I would have liked to have seen a scrappy little mutt (mixed breed pup) in place of our beloved Labs.

I just thought I’d throw this out there: One of my other favorite commercials was the Radio Shack 80’s commercial. I’m sure many of the youngsters didn’t get it, but I love the nostalgia…Mary Lou Retton, Cliff Claven, Bubo, Alf, Teen Wolf, Chuckie, and of course “Doc. Ah… Are you telling me that you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?” Gotta love it! Btw, I also thought this commercial was very appropriate as the image I see when I think of Radio Shack is 80’s Electronics Store. I guess many others think the same…

We were only casually watching the Super Bowl this year so we may have missed something. Were there any other great puppy commercials during Super Bowl XLVIII? What do you all think of this years Super Bowl Commercials? Tell us about it in the comment section below.
