This year was full of surprising things that happened in entertainment; Beyonce welcomed her and Jay-Z’s daughter Blu Ivy, Whitney Houston unfortunately passed, Justin Bieber was hit with a paternity suit by a fan who claimed she got pregnant after a backstage tryst with the singer, Chris Brown and Rihanna kinda sorta got back together (LOL) and now Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting. I personally think its a tie between Kim and Kanye’s baby news and the Justin Bieber paternity suit! What was most shocking to you?
As far as the dejected New England Patriots are concerned, there was only one winner at the Super Bowl. And, it wasn’t them. But the New York Giants are not the only team that had a banner night. Several of the advertisers and marketing firms behind the night’s most popular Super Bowl commercials were likely celebrating by the time that Tom Brady’s last-gasp heave to the end zone dropped harmlessly to conclude Super Bowl XLVI.
Nearly as lauded as Eli Manning was Doritos, who had two funny ads vying for the top spot on the USA Today Admeter. With so many ads going for laughs, one of the night’s most memorable spots differentiated itself by going in an entirely different direction. Clint Eastwood starred in a stirring Chrysler ad and spoke about the revitalization of Detroit and America.
