This commercial still brings tears twelve years later. What people may not remember about this commercial is that Budweiser only aired it once during Super Bowl 36 so as not to benefit financially from it – they just wanted to acknowledge the tragic event and honor the victims of September 11, 2001.
Good to see someone calling her out for her performance. I don’t think it rates the label of ‘national scandal’. Inappropriate is much more like it. My four-year-old son asked me during Beyonce’s performance ‘Is that how you have sex??’

Media mogul Donald Trump slammed Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance as ‘ridiculous’ and inappropriate.
Appearing on the ‘Howard Stern Show,’ Trump said the singer was too ‘suggestive’ for a national audience.
‘When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal,’ Trump, 66, said. ‘I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate.’
Beyonce’s performance was heavily praised by music critics, despite the unflattering photographs that emerged afterwards of her making particularly aggressive faces while she danced.
Trump said he thought it was strange that no one else has criticized her for her scandalous dance moves.
‘There’s been no mention of it,’ he said. ‘So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.’
Trump isn’t shy about making his opinions known on other celebrities and well-known personalities.
His targets in the past have included actress Kristen Stewart and Huffington Post President Arianna Huffington.
Says she didn’t have time to rehearse with the orchestra before her performance at President Obama’s Inauguration. I’m sure Kelly Clarkson was able to rehearse as she sang live. You can clearly see in this Instagram photo Beyonce posted that she worked with the U.S. Marine Corps Band on the pre-recorded track so, how much rehearsal was necessary?
There was this smoldering hot Teleflora ad featuring Adriana Lima but in my view, these two commercials were the best Super Bowl commercials of the night.
‘The Dog Strikes Back’ (see above – definitely #1)
This next one got the most laughs at my house.
Great read at CBSSports.com on what last night’s loss means to Tom Brady and his Coach Bill Belichick. Read this impressive column from Mike Freeman.
Can any commercial starring Adriana Lima be less than ‘smoldering?’
