Duck & Cover: Top Ten Super Bowl Commercials

-Eleni Pappelis

#10 Wheat Thins: Night Vision
I know I would stay up with my night vision goggles if I knew a yeti were going to come into my house to try and steal my Wheat Thins…

#9 Oreo: Whisper Fight
Oreo definitely separates itself from all the noise of the Super Bowl with this cream vs. cookies whisper brawl in the library.

#8 Taco Bell: Viva Young
These old geezers still got it…

#7 Doritos: Fashionista Daddy
If not the love for his own daughter, what else could turn an afternoon of football for this athletic dad and his friends into a bunch of princesses? Only Doritos.

#6 Calvin Klein: Concept Underwear
Maybe I’m a little biased. All I can say is–and I know I’m speaking for all the ladies out there–thank you, Calvin Klein.

#5 Pizza Hut: Make It Great
Anyone can enjoy the great game of football with Pizza Hut Hut Hut Hut.

#4 Ram Truck: Farmer
This is a beautiful arrangement of still images set to the booming voice of radio announcer Paul Harvey reciting, “So God Made a Farmer.”

#3 Wonderful Pistachios: PSY, Get Crackin’
One of the few commercials I enjoy sitting through just to have a good laugh, Wonderful Pistachios has done it again. This witty ad campaign brings me to tears almost every time with Gangnam Style‘s PSY’s hilarious dance moves and persona. Now this is how you use celebrities to advertise.

#2 Doritos: Goat for Sale (top)
Need a laugh? See what happens when you take a goat’s Doritos.

And the all time worst but probably most resonant commercial shown during the Super Bowl is:

#1 GoDaddy.com: Perfect Match
Yikes. Although this commercial is grotesque and off-putting, the ad team with GoDaddy.com definitely did their job and made this one of the most remembered commercials during the Super Bowl. Well played, GoDaddy.
