After reading Steve Johnson's review of TV ads that ran during the Super Bowl, I have to wonder if we were watching the same commercials ("Ads surge, short-circuit," Feb. 4).
Mr. Johnson praised the GoDaddy ad in which a supermodel makes out with a geek — which was just disgusting and was panned by most viewers — as well as the company's other "big idea" spot, which was decidedly uninspiring.
He continued by judging both the Clydesdale/trainer ad for Budweiser and the ETrade baby to have been failures.
Sorry, but most people loved both those spots, enjoying either their sentimentality or their humor.
These may have been Mr. Johnson's personal opinions, but they definitely didn't reflect the feelings of most viewers.
