Laurence Fishburne singing Opra. Love it.
(NEWSER) – The much-anticipated Seinfeld reunion turned out to be a Super Bowl commercial, although commentators say it wasn't one of the highlights in a "middling" year for ads, which was a lot lighter in gross-outs and raunchiness than many previous years. Some highlights and lowlights, as rounded up by the Washington Post, AdWeek, and Variety:
Kia: "The Truth." Laurence Fishburne reprises his role as Morpheus from The Matrix, now a valet who offers a couple the choice of a blue key or a red key.
Toyota Highlander. The Muppets meet Terry Crews on a dusty road and launch into a new jingle: "We ain't got no time for boring."
Maserati: "Now We Strike." Dramatic and well produced, "but I have no idea what the hell it has to do with cars," writes Brian Lowry at Variety.
