Super Bowl XXXIX Commercials in HDTV on FOX!

Thanks in advance for posting all related comments here. Please include all pertinent info; source, HD format viewed in, etc.

There are other topics specifically for FOX Super Bowl, Halftime Show & Pregame Show, which will be open at the appropriate times.

This topic will open at approximately 6pm ET Sunday.


In light of all the recent interest in the Super Bowl commercials, I thought why not dedicate a topic to them? With an $80,000 per second price tag, we'll probably see at least a few that will catch our fancy.

I'm guessing there will be at least a dozen or more in HD, so indicate your favorites and I'll create a poll to pick the best one after the game.

the "24" spots are good. "grab an extra pair cause you're gonna need it" That's funny.

Maybe more companies will do their SB commercials in HDTV next year, if it means they're first up out of the break! :D

XXX movie commercial looked great.

Ford has really stepped up. I liked the truck commercial, but the frozen Mustang Convertible driver was very funny.

First with its Trucks and then Mustang spots, maybe all Ford spots will be HD -- and hilarious!
