If there was any group of viewers who hated the first half of Super Bowl LI more than New England Patriots fans, it was those who tuned in just for the commercials.
The Super Bowl is known for having the most funny, emotional, and all-around best advertisements on television on all year. But fans, journalists, and even a Senator have all been critical of this year’s crop.
Here’s a sampling of the social media opinion on Sunday night’s ads:
i swear, i usually enjoy the commercials….. but this year, theyre TERRIBLE… not one single funny one (except skittles)
