LET’S GET READY TO NACHOOOOOOS! This Sunday is the Super Bowl no duh, it’s going to be so great. Can’t wait to see that hilarious new Ferris Bueller ad on the big screen. Can’t wait to cheer on all of our men and men in uniform as they go for the big scoredown out on the old gaming pitch. (If I was 40 years younger I would make a golden snitch joke, but I’m not, so I won’t.) Anyway, you are probably watching this IMPORTANT EVENT with your friends and family, but in case you don’t have anywhere else to go, why not watch it with us? The Super Bowl isn’t your usual Videogum Video Pizza Party, but it IS on television, and it’s 2012 so HEY why not? All that really means is opening Videogum in one of your tabs on Sunday and leaving the occasional comment but HEY, it is better than NOTHING. Probably? Hard to say.

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the The Annual Vanity Fair “Hollywood” Cover Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

  1. It’s Friday, let’s dance like we just saw a sloth

  2. Superbowl VG Pizza Party? Oh Snap! Two of my favorite things coming together. I will try not to nerd out too much. Also I gotta call my buddies, you ain’t coming to my house this weekend, I’m spending the Superbowl posting and giggling like a schoolgirl.

  3. Oh, and thanks for the EC, Kelly. This gif’s for you

  4. Happy weekend, Monsters. You too, Gabe and Kelly!

  5. I warned you guys Louis would worm his way into the Ball! But noooo, you’re all too “cool” and “neato” to listen to Old Man Beerbong. I’m putting a plastic bag over my head in protest. Then maybe you’ll appreciate what I do for you.

    • Sorry, it’s hard to listen to you when we’re listening to Muse all the time. Did you know that Muse is the best band ever? Sure you did,everyone does.

  6. So to recap:

    - Gabe just mentioned something I posted
    - It was a dick joke
    - My team is in the Super Bowl
    - It’s my birthday on Monday

    Life is good.

  7. I think Google Alerts probably deserves an assist for that lowest rated comment winner.

  8. Fun week gang! Happy sports!

  9. Thread of the week was the entire Louis Simon thread, that was the best. I just bought expensive Tequila and I could not be more excited to drink it.

  10. I just learned you can upvote Chris Brown’s Klout on Domestic Abuse and Steampunk… WHICH IS AWESOME.

    This is truly a wonderful day.

  11. Speaking of epic sports events, I just played a game of dodgeball with 4,978 other people! It was pretty boring! But we set a new world record, so eat it, University of California, Irvine.

    • I thought of you today, because I knew that game was happening! Were there cupcakes this year, or were the cupcakes kept off the premises because they weren’t registered students?

      • Haha, no! I forgot about last year’s epic cupcakes.

        That occupy Edmonton thing is so funny to me, because how could that many people have ever assumed that camping out on private property would be tolerated for even a second? The way that whole thing went down, and how they ended up getting thrown a sad little table in SUB as consolation was pure comedy

  12. you guys wanna come over to my house to watch the super bowl?

  13. I’m going to be more funny next week

  14. I know I’m a long time listener and only 21st time caller, but I wish all the people who upvoted (or downvoted) would join the community. Create a username anonymonsters!

    • Don’t you have to be registered already to upvote or downvote? I don’t see the options there if I ever read a post while I’m logged out, otherwise I would obviously anonymously upvote all my own comments into oblivion.

      • I think peeps could still upvote with Facebook without making a proper account. In my travels as a videogum journeyman it always surprises me how many people say they just upvote but don’t comment. Some times we forget how many people actually read the blog compared to how many people actively participate. sometimes when it rains at night, the moon light hits the rain drops falling, creating a gradient reflection, and I wonder, “who are these monsters, why won’t you let me love you?” Then I remember it’s probably because i say weird shit like this out of the blue, for no reason.

  15. I love how the highest ranked comment came after the lowest ranked. Symmetry, I think.
