The morning after the Super Bowl, there is a constant discussion about the dropped passes, the unnecessary roughness and the terrible calls.
Yes, of course I'm talking about the commercials.
Many media companies weigh in and declare that they know which of them moved the populace to wild emotions and untold paroxysms of brand loyalty.
TiVo, meanwhile, constantly checked the pulses and sweat glands of its subscribers and came out with a simple declaration: the most engaging ad of the Super Bowl was the one for Taco Bell.
Yes, the one where the older people behaved like younger people and looked no more sensible doing it.
I'll admit to having been engaged by the music -- a Hispanic(ish) version of "We Are Young" that sounded as though it had been performed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in his best Spanish.
Second was "Goat For Sale" from Doritos. In this opus, a goat ate a lot of Doritos and got very angry.
I wasn't aware Doritos had quite that effect.
Which seems to suggest that the most engaging tech brand at the Super Bowl was GoDaddy.
It also seems to suggest thatdidn't touch people as much as it makers might have hoped.
