This commercial almost blew up twitter. Most people thought it was gross, out of place, and even inappropriate. But, any time you can watch Bar Rafaeli make out with someone—even if it’s with a nerd—you should take advantage of it.
Maybe it’s because I love an underdog story, but I am glad this actor got to make out with one of the worlds hottest supermodels. I heard in an interview that they did over 50 takes.
Most people were grossed out by this one. Decide for yourself.
Best Buy/Amy Poehler:
This commercial was simple and low concept, but Amy Poehler knocked it out of the park with her great one liners.
“Whats LTE? Is it contagious?”
“So what makes a Smart TV so smart?”
“How many megapixels does one person really need?”
Poehler is quickly becoming a star for her quirky and hilarious humor. Her performance at the Golden Globes might have just sent her into superstardom. Her best Golden Globes line: “This next presenter makes young George Clooney look like trash. Please welcome middle aged George Clooney”.

Milk/The Rock saving the world:
I don’i know how Joe Flacco was voted Super Bowl MVP over ‘The Rock’, but Dwayne Johnson got robbed. The Rock was in two Super Bowl commercials and may have been the true MVP of the evening. Johnson had a ridiculous commercial for his upcoming movie the Fast and the Furious 6, but it was his Milk ad that really hit the mark.
In the ad, Johnson must control his urge to save people while the world is falling a part in order to get some milk for his daughter who wants some cereal for breakfast. The ad was charming, funny, and on point. It was definitely one of the best of the evening.
The Rock saving the world and making his daughter breakfast--all in a days work. Here's a link.
What a tear-jerker this one was. I was minding my own business, trying to act tough by watching the big game and then bam—I’m in tears pretending I got something in my eye. I guess this commercial just reminded me of that pony I never got when I was six.
This was a well done ad by Budweiser that reminded us of the bond between man and animal. But, if you need to watch it again, just make sure you are alone--nobody wants to see a grown man in tears.
What a low-blow by Budweiser--making grown men cry during the Super Bowl. Here's a link.
This was one of the most random commercials of the night. Everyone knows that the cookie is the best part of the Oreo—actually, maybe it is the cream. Either way, Oreo had one of the funniest and entertaining commercials of the night. If I wasn't still on my New Years resolution to lose weight, I'd have an Oreo right now.
Is the cream or cookie the best part of an Oreo? It's definitely something worth fighting over. Here's a link
Worst Commercial of the Evening:
Did Ram Trucks really pay for a two-minute long commercial about why God invented farmers? This ad felt longer than the 34 minute power outage. This may be one of the worst ads I have ever seen. How about a little more Beyonce and a lot less farmers.
I appreciate farmers, I just don't want a two-minute long ad about them. Here's a link.
