The Funniest Super Bowl Ad

... in Detroit, that is.

For those watching the Super Bowl in metro Detroit, one of the first commercial breaks during the game (or maybe it was during the "kick-off" show) gave us an ad funnier than anything Budweiser had to offer.

Maybe if the ad had said, "Look, we're really, really, really sorry," I'd have been more receptive. (And if it had said, "We're also really sorry you have to watch Matt Millen on NBC's pre-game show," that would've been glorious. But Channel 4 in Detroit sort of took care of that.)

And the load of cheese served up in getting new coach Jim Schwartz to pose by the scoreboard and then run onto the field would've gone great on the nacho chips I was eating at the time.

But hey, at least they're trying.
