Did the Super Bowl Blackout ruin your game day experience? Not if you were just there for the commercials. There were some good ones, some bad and some awkward ones. What was your favorite Super Bowl Commercial and what was the one that left you thinking, “They spent $4 million dollars on this… Really?” We got what we feel are the best and worst Super Bowl commercials right here. Let me know what I missed.
Budweiser Super Bowl Commercial: The Clydesdales: “Brotherhood”
Budweiser’s 2013 Super Bowl ad featured the famous Clydesdales horses. Including a young foal, who was just 7 days old during the shoot. The ad features a man and his horse. After raising the young Clydesdales he must say goodbye as the horse leaves home.
Jeep Super Bowl Commercial: “Whole Again”
When our troops are home, we are more than a family. We are a nation that is whole again. – Not sure it felt right to have Oprah narrate this tribute to America, but it was still pretty good, if not a little long.
Ram Trucks Super Bowl Commercial: “Farmer”
And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker.” So God made a farmer. – I get what they were doing and I liked it. But this one felt longer that the Jeep commercial.
Samsung Super Bowl Commercial: The Next Big Thing
The Big Pitch is here! In our complete ad for the 2013 Big Game, Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd make their pitch to represent The Next Big Thing. Vote, then share your favorite moment on Twitter using. – Not a great spot but I always love Rogan and Rudd.
Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial: Get In. Get Happy
Volkswagen introduces you to Dave and his new found sunny disposition (that manifests itself in a curious way), all thanks to his new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle. The ad features “C’mon, Get Happy” by Jamaican artist Jimmy Cliff. – They said this one was racist. I thought it made a point of saying Jamaicans have a good outlook on life.
OREO Super Bowl Commercial: Whisper Fight
When grown men whisper-fight about OREO cookies in a library, everyone wins. – My brother made me watch this one three times. It was funny but I think it was trying a little too hard.
Tide Super Bowl Commercial: Miracle Stain
What do you do when a beloved NFL great miraculously graces the world with his presence on the front of your jersey? Soak up your 15 minutes of fame. That’s what. – Kind of annoying because no one would ever give up the millions of dollars for a game. I know it’s a commercial, but still.
Best Buy Super Bowl Commercial: Asking Amy
Watch Best Buy’s knowledgeable Blue Shirt take on Amy Poehler, a customer armed with a lot of questions. Best Buy has thousands of experts ready to help you with your questions, too. – It’s as funny as anything else Amy Poehler has done.
Taco Bell Super Bowl Commercial: VIVA YOUNG
Bernie Goldblatt and his old school amigos from The Glencobrooke Retirement Home “Live Mas” when they sneak out for a wild night they’ll never forget. – No comment. It wasn’t bad just no comment.
M&M’S Super Bowl Commercial: Love Ballad
Red sings a love song to Naya Rivera who clearly wants more than just love. – Not bad for a M&M commercial.
Calvin Klein Super Bowl Commercial: Concept
Calvin Klein Concept commercial featuring model Matthew Terry stretching. – And I think sprinting but it was in slow motion and who sprints in a banana hamick. I guess the women were getting bored and Calven Klein stepped in to heat them back up.
Wonderful Pistachios Get Crackin’ Super Bowl Commercial Featuring PSY.
PSY does it and we all go nuts. Wonderful Pistachios. Get Crackin’. – Korean pop sensation, PSY, gets crackin’ with Wonderful Pistachios and apparently he also hates America.
Godaddy Super Bowl Commercial: The Kiss Perfect Match – Bar Refaeli’s Big Kiss!
Danica Patrick watches “sexy meet smart” as supermodel Bar Refaeli experiences The Kiss in this GoDaddy.com 2013 Big Game commercial. – Way too long of a kiss, way too close up and way too much slurping noises.
Toyota RAV4 Super Bowl Commercial: Wish Granted
Kaley Cuoco isn’t your average genie. She’s modern, smart and stylish, like the Toyota RAV4 she lives inside. – Eh.
