MetLife

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.

Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com

 

Above: Doom comes in many shapes and sizes. Today, yours has come in the form of cute vampire kitty. But be warned, despite its adorableness it is still a harbinger of death. (Fashionably Geek)

 

Just as cute but not nearly as ominous is this awesome Valkyrie cosplay from Victoria Henderson. (Fashionable Geek)

Another Super Bowl has come and gone, and another batch of overly hyped but in the end, disappointing Super Bowl commercials have aired. I’m sure everyone feels this way but I swear the commericials when I was a kid were more memorable. Maybe now we’re all too old and jaded to see the fun in a million dollar advertising campaign.

But out of all the commercials aired this year only one seemed to pander to those of us craving some nerdy nostalgia. It was MetLife‘s commericial starring just about every cartoon idol from our childhood. All coming together to celebrate, uhh, insurance on some grassy hill.

I don’t really get it either. And bringing Voltron and Scooby-Doo into the picture doesn’t get me excited about life insurance.

What did you think of MetLife’s or any of the other Super Bowl commercials? Did you have a favorite?I think I liked the yogurt one with John Stamos getting head butted. I literally lol-ed.
