Not surprisingly, Twitter was abuzz with the news that Korean viral sensation Psy starred in a Super Bowl ad for Wonderful Pistachios.
There have been words of glee…

As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battle for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers compete for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cuts away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills, another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers was unveiled (although many had been teased). Take a look around your Super Bowl party. Are people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?
While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
