Chances are that you've all seen or at least heard of some of the best, most popular Super Bowl ads by now. I don't know about you but I know they're the only reason why I watched the big game last night. I couldn't have cared less if the Ravens or the 49ers won but the commercials were worth watching. Some of the tweets from companies like Nabisco (Oreo) and State Farm taking advantage of the "Super Bowl Black Out" were amusing too. All in all it was worth spending a Sunday watching a team I loathe (come on I'm a Steelers fan, did you really think I could root for the Ravens?) just to get a few good laughs or in a couple cases a good cry. Some were cringe-worthy, here's looking at you GoDaddy and Beck's Sapphire. Bleh. Below are my favorites. What did you think of the ads? Did any of your favorites make the list?
These are the ones that got the belly laughs at my house...
Doritos- Goat 4 Sale
(I had nightmares about a screaming goat.)
Toyota- Wish Granted
(Chocolate IV anyone? Sign me up!)
Oreo- Whisper Fight
(Double Stuf are the only Oreos I eat so creme gets my vote!)
(Two words -- The Rock!)
(The commercial was just plain nuts.... Yes, I went there.)
My two favorite 2013 ads didn't make me laugh but tugged at the ol' heartstrings...Kleenex please!
Jeep/ USO- Whole Again
(Thank you servicemen and women!)
Budweiser- The Clydesdales Brotherhood
Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my favorite movie trailer too, Star Trek: Into Darkness.
Benedict Cumberbatch. *le sigh*
