Despite of the economic crisis in the US, super Bowl remains the premier advertising event of the country. An audience of 100 million, the biggest of any American telecast. Viewers like to watch the commercials.

This year, a few commercials will reflect the weak economy, but by and large, the ads aim to deliver glitz, guffaws and groans _ like they do every year. There will be celebrity appearances in ads, including Conan O’Brien for Bud Light, John Turturro for Heineken USA Inc. and Jason Statham for Audi of America Inc.

Internet domain registrar The Go Daddy Group Inc., will air a somewhat risque spot, as it has done in the past. While its less-than-slick ads that the company made itself, featuring racer Danica Patrick, are bound to make viewers groan, Go Daddy doesn’t care. At least Go Daddy got approved. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals got steamed because NBC rejected its ad for vegetarianism that featured half-naked women playing with vegetables.
