Transformers Win the Super Bowl!

Personally, I was watching Puppy Bowl V on Sunday, but I hear there was another “bowl” on that day, with some pretty nifty ads.

There’s actually a poll of which Super Bowl movie trailers were the most memorable (MovieTickets.com).  Could this be an indicator of box office success? 

Who knows, but here’s the poll, with links to the ads themselves and tie-in information available to date (to give you justification for watching the trailers). If you want to see ALL the SuperBowl ads — and vote on them — go to SuperBowl Blitz on You Tube.
