Superbowl and commercials

Just like several years ago I watched the Superbowl with my laptop and recorded the different types of commercials. This year I know I got them all, thanks to the wonders of DVR. I used a single, subjective classification system, meaning if an ad fit two categories (ie: vote for the game's MVP on NFL.com), I would pick the category that I thought it best fit into and not mark the other category. I started recording from Faith Hill singing the "Yay it's the Superbowl" song and ended when the game ended.

The fourth quarter of the game itself was amazing to watch!
