The blogosphere has recently been abuzz regarding the
negative portrayal of romantic relationships and family in the 2010 Super Bowl
commercials. Critics point to the Dodge
commercial featuring a beaten down husband with only a car saving him, as well
as the FloTV commercial featuring a boyfriend with his spine removed by his
girlfriend. See one of the commercials
here, and commentary here. Super Bowl commercials have generally been thought to reflect cultural attitudes and the brightest of advertising talent.
