Let's get one thing straight: the only reason people watched the
Beyoncé Concert Super Bowl last night was for the Half Time show AND the commercials!
We've been hearing, though, that a lot of the commercials were half-assed and not so great this year — but we think there were a few gems out there, including the teasers for upcoming movies! On a second watch-through, we submit the business-side of the Super Bowl wasn't as bad as you think!
Especially if you like tear-jerkers and Seth Rogen teaming up with Paul Rudd (above)!! LOLz!
If you happened to miss more than a few of them last night, don't worry your pretty booty — we've collected the best (and a few of the worst) of them just for you AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Since Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum is getting ready to play in the Russell Athletic Bowl, and gets some nice gifts for doing so, which included a $500 Best Buy gift card… instead of treating himself, he decided to give his monies to some kiddies.
However, Exum did buy himself a pair of $30 headphones, but then gave the remaining balance to three boys, so that they could indulge a mini shopping spree.
He tweeted about his experience:

While the overall sales of TVs will go down, the screen size will still go up!
The Super Bowl is just around the corner and typically, retailers have great deals for party hosters who want to watch the big game.
This year, not so much.
More consumers took advantage of riDICK deals on Black Friday so retailers have less TVs in stock. Less TVs equals fewer deals.
However, if you're looking to go BIG this Sunday, some deals are still lurking for you.
Sharp's 80 inch TV, normally $5500, is available on Amazon for only $4100. Best Buy has $700 price cuts on Sharp's 60 and 60 inchers while selling the 80 inch version for $5000.
Other deals include Sony Bravias and LG TVs with $500 rebates and 92-inch 3D projector from Mitsubishi going $4000 with a whopping $2000 Super Sunday promotion.
Now, who's ready for a GIANT TV for the big game?!

Companies go all out for Superbowl ads, and this year it looks like Best Buy might be trying to make the biggest splash by signing Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne to do a commercial for the big game.
Says marketing chief Drew Panayiotou:
"Justin Bieber is the biggest star out there, but that's not why he's in the spot. He symbolically represents something important to the brand message."
Best Buy is trying to appeal to a younger generation with Justin Bieber while still retaining the older folk with Ozzy.
Just Bieber is on fire right now — we think that anything he touches will blow up!
What do U think? Is this a good pairing?
P.S. Sources reveal exclusively to FitPerez.com that Bieber is very playful in the video, even making fun of himself!
Great to see he's got such a good sense of humor!
