How will Sunday's Super Bowl ads stack up to your favorites? [Super Bowl XLVI Commercials Sneak Peek]
The fact is, there's a reason the Super Bowl gets close to (or over) 100 million viewers every year, and it's not because there are that many NFL fans - though there are a good number of those. The Big Game is more than just a big game; it's entertainment. And a major part of that entertainment, the reason people make sure they have all the food and alcohol they need prior to the game so they don't have to make a beer or snack run, is the ads. Every year, we expect shocking or funny commercials, and every year we seem to get at least one that we're all talking about the next day at work, and in real time on Facebook, Twitter, and right here on FanIQ (yes, we'll be having an open thread specifically for the ads Sunday)!
Let's take a look back at some memorable ads from the past:
2006, Budweiser (about the only great thing that came from SBXL)
2002, Budweiser 9/11 Tribute
And while we're on Budweiser, who could forget the original Budweiser frog commercial? Certainly not the funniest of the Budweiser animal commercials, but here's where it all started, in 1995:
The funniest Budweiser ad, in my opinion, didn't even air during a Super Bowl; rather, it aired during the playoffs in 2000. Come on, you know we couldn't post the frogs without the chameleons and ferret.
