SuprBowl ads

Want to watch the US superbowl ads? Try here: http://video.google.com/superbowl.html

I'm frankly extremely happy about this. In previous years we've had to turn to horribly slow sites that forced us to use horrible players, register accounts, and had low quality. Some even started charging money to view them.

Thanks to Google Video, not only can I watch them in my browser with no account, but the google superbowl page has an option to watch them back-to-back, saving a load of time. Also, the page includes GoDaddy's banned ads.

The quality complaint is still there, though, as Google Video doesn't use overlay (It uses nearest neighbour resizing, which sucks), and Google Video uses an insane amount of CPU power (probably because it doesn't use overlay). Still, a small price to pay.
