WATCH: Best and worst Super Bowl commercials

Unless you are a Seattle Seahawks fan who thoroughly enjoyed watching your team stomp all over the Denver Broncos, the highlight of the Super Bowl really was the commercials. With the average 30-second spot costing a whopping $4 million, advertisers certainly put a lot of stock in the effectiveness of their commercials. On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Jeffy broke down the best and worst.

Glenn’s favorite commercial was Maserati’s ad that was attention-grabbing despite the fact a large majority of the viewing audience could probably never afford to actually purchase the car. Glenn enjoyed the ad, however, because of the message it conveyed.

“I loved the Maserati ad because it is us. I so effected by this,” Glenn said. “They're basically saying there are bullies out there. And in their particular case, the automakers, they're bullies, and we've prepared. We've watched them. We've waited. And now we ride… I love the message.”

Bob Dylan’s appearance in the new Chyster commercial also had people talking. In keeping with the company’s ‘Imported from Detroit’ tagline, Dylan narrated an ad that showed some of the best of what America has to offer. Unfortunately, Chrysler is actually owned by an Italian company.

“Chrysler is Fiat, and this is the real problem,” Glenn said. “If you watch it just as an ad and you're not thinking, oh really, how about the frickin bail out? No, try to not scream at the television every time you see an ad for a GM or a Chrysler. But this one, try not to scream about the bailout, try not to scream, ‘You're not an American company!’ I know you're not an American company [but] pretend that those two things weren't true.”

One of the most controversial ads of the night was Coca Cola’s decision to have ‘America the Beautiful’ sung in several different languages. Given the current immigration debate in this country, the commercial clearly had political undertones. And Glenn saw the ad as one of the few divisive elements of an otherwise inclusive night.

“So somebody tweeted last night and said, ‘Glenn, what did you think of the Coke ad?’ And I said, ‘Why did you need that to divide us politically?’ Because that's all this ad is,” Glenn said. “It's in your face, and if you don't like it, if you're offended by it, you're a racist. If you do like it, you're for immigration. You're for progress. That's all this is: To divide people. Remember when Coke used to do the thing on the top and they would all hold hands? Now it's, have a Coke and we'll divide you.”

The last couple of years, Budweiser has enjoyed tremendous success capitalizing on people’s love of animals, and this year was no different. While this year’s ad featuring an unlikely friendship between a horse and puppy took the Internet by storm last week, Pat wasn’t all that impressed.

“I warned you, Pat is going to make you sick,” Glenn joked. “Go ahead. Launch in on your thought about the dog and the horse.”

“First of all, I'm done with the cute puppy Super Bowl ad… I'm done with the animal spots. It's so easy. Can we stop with that,” Pat asked. “It's like, ‘What's the easiest, most talked about thing we can do for our $4 million ad? How about a dog and a horse and their friends?’ Just tired of it.”

The other Budweiser commercial to run during the big game featured Lt. Chuck Nadd returning home. After meeting his girlfriend at the airport, Lt. Nadd is welcomed home with a parade through the streets of his small town. While the message of the ad –salute our nation’s heroes – is noble, something about the commercial rubbed Glenn the wrong day.

“This is not going to make people happy, but the Budweiser ad welcomed the military home and stuff. I thought it was a great ad, and we do have to salute our military. But it bothers me. I don't know what it is exactly,” Glenn said. “I think it’s [that] we're still there. You know, when we first started saying that, we meant, ‘Let's give them a parade when they come home and it's over.’ When is this damn thing going to be over? It's asinine that we are still out there. How about we bring them home so we can have a parade? I mean that's what I'd like to see Budweiser say.”

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
