Oh yeah, that NFL spot was pretty good, too


Talk about the Super Bowl commercials has mostly been about babies getting chucked at windows and a tiny Darth Vader, leaving perfectly good ads like the NFL’s “American Family” spot (from Grey New York) out in the cold. It’s an impressive assemblage of Super Bowl-related classic TV clips, set to the theme from Dallas (if I’m not mistaken), and that Steve Urkel/Brady Bunch sequence is pretty funny. Not Roseanne-getting-hit-by-a-giant-log funny, but funny. It also makes total sense that Neuman is a Cowboys fan. And it’s weird seeing Richie Cunningham in this ad, because Ron Howard was at the Super Bowl, and he looks more like his brother Clint now.
