My Favorite SuperBowl Anthem, Halftime, and Ad

My annual repost...

National Anthem 1999
Cher's final notes give me the chills every time!

Halftime 2002
The nation was still in shock and mourning from 9/11, with a bit of a guilt complex on whether it was okay to enjoy ourselves. The unexpected tapestry of names and Bono revealing that the lining of his jacket was the U.S. flag were strokes of brilliance!



Commercial 1984
An ad the likes of which we'll never see again. The 30 seconds that became a phenomenon, and set the tone for all SuperBowl advertising to follow.

The 1984 commercial introducing the Macintosh stands as my favorite commercial of all time.

"I think, therefore I Mac."

That mac commercial still gives me goosebumps when I watch it. And I remember seeing it in 1984.
