EYES ON THE SUPER BOWL ADS: Dylan gets patriotic for Chrysler

(Continued)

Now we know what it was all about: an ad for Jerry Seinfeld's show "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" on Crackle.

In the ad, George gripes that he wasn't invited to a Super Bowl party. After some prodding, Jerry tells him it's because he "over-cheered." After some more prodding, Jerry admits the real reason: it seems George "availed himself" in the bathroom of the host's master bedroom.

NEW YORK CITY GETS A TUNE-UP

Halftime sponsor Pepsi got one of the sweetest ad spots of the night, with a 30-second lead-in to the show starring Bruno Mars.

The spot showed various New York City monuments at night being lit up and played like instruments — the Manhattan bridge is strummed like a guitar, Columbus Circle is spun like a record and the Guggenheim and famous Pepsi-Cola sign in Long Island City get played like drums.

MetLife stadium, where the game is being played, is turned like a dial, making the lights climb across the city's skyscrapers.

The Broncos may have gone with Peyton Manning for its quarterback, but expect to see more Tebow tonight too; T-Mobile has more ads on the way.
