Huh. I thought the Bears would win.

Kristin Dehnert, the Aurora native who was a finalist in the Doritos ad contest, didn't win; Doritos went with another spot that romanticized reckless driving instead.
But apparently the voting was so close, and the response to her "Check Out Girl" ad so great, that Doritos ponied up for another spot and ran her ad, too.
"I guess we're the No. 1 video on YouTube right now," Dehnert announced triumphantly by phone.
For the record? She was munching on Doritos Salsa Verde during the game.
. . . also might benefit from a Mystic Tan.
In the BeatYourRisk.com commercials, an old man dressed as a red satin heart is attacked in an alley by "cholesterol," "high blood pressure," "overweight," etc.
But "diabetes" was a total babe. Straight out of "The Matrix."
What does that mean?
It's always nice to hear from Ricardo Montalban. He did the voiceover at the end of the talking-lions Taco Bell commercial, and has collaborated with them since 1999.
He's also appeared in commercials for Maxwell House and Dunkin' Donuts, not to mention his work with the Chrysler Cordoba ("fine Corinthian leather").
More trivia from wikipedia.org: Montalban has stated that when he first arrived in Hollywood, studios wanted to change his name to Ricky Martin.
Why do I get the feeling that Prince has never played in a football game?
Or watched one?
I loved the ad for David Letterman's show.
Dave: I want the Colts and you want the Bears, but we both win because we're in love.
[The camera pulls back to reveal that he is playing snuggle bunnies with . . . Oprah Winfrey.]
Oprah: Honey, don't talk with your mouth full.
I got chills!
It looks as though "Borat" has ushered in a bold new era of fairly disgusting man-on-man action. Witness the new "Snickers Satisfies" commercial, in which two scruffy mechanics end up in the middle of a Snickers bar in a kiss, a la the "Lady and the Tramp" spaghetti scene.
The gay community must be thrilled to pieces.
I just watched a block of commercials, featuring:
*One partygoer throwing a rock at the head of another partygoer for the last Budweiser.
*A car accident, played to comic effect, to advertise Doritos.
*A rabbit and a hamster roundly abusing a mouse, in the name of Blockbuster.
Jessica Simpson's new Pizza Hut commercial has been revealed and, if nothing else, it proves that Mystic Tan is a girl's best friend. I just don't like seeing Jess so pale.
Her big line: "Mmm, Cheesy Bites. My one true love."
That'll really burn Nick! And put that skittish John Mayer in his place, too!
Commercial endorsements: the only way to rebound.
Trishelle Cannatella, possibly reality television's busiest veteran (in more ways than one), is already committed to playing in the half-time Lingerie Bowl. And I just glimpsed her partying in the new GoDaddy.com commercial.
I think this is her night.
That's Dan Marino! From "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective"!
I wouldn't have thought that the Super Bowl would be the correct demographic for a Christian Dior commercial, but what do I know? The spot for the pricey J'Adore perfume, with Charlize Theron stripping off her jewelry and her strapless gown while striding purposefully toward the camera, was jaw-dropping.
Does she do bachelor parties?
I'm not sure what I expected from Couric's hair at her first Super Bowl appearance. Helmet hair? At least it would have been appropriate.
Instead, at 3:45 she introduced a piece on the Pittsburgh Steelers' Hines Ward (Are the Steelers playing today? How do you sports fans keep up?) with a naughty, bed-head look. I guess the technical hair term would be "tousled-beach-meets-bad-perm-and-gets-into-a-slapping-fight."
Do we blame the humidity? Or was Katie's curling iron confiscated by airport security?
A 19-year-old has won the Super Bowl ad contest for Chevrolet. Katie Crabb, who lives near Milwaukee, designed the winning entry -- something about men wanting to wash the car in New York City. She assures us that it's funny. Chevrolet is probably spending around $2.6 million for the time slot.
(This is where you say, "I'm going to Disneyland!")
