The Best Commercials from Super Bowl XLIII

February 2, 2009

Another Super Bowl has come and gone and those of us not celebrating a victory are left to discuss the commercials, of course.

However, I have to say that I thought the game was actually more interesting that the commercials this year.  Usually I put together a Top 10 list, but this year I only found five that I really liked.

Without further ado, here’s my Top 5 Super Bowl commercials.

1.  The Nextel Roadies

I am a big fan of the Sprint/Nextel’s “If they ran the world” commercials to begin with and I really liked these latest addition.  And it was well placed right before the halftime show.

2.  Budweiser Clydesdale Plays Fetch

The Budweiser commercials featuring the Clydesdales are always my favorites.  This year I believe there were three, but the one I liked most was where the Clydesdale decides to play fetch.

3.  Alec Baldwin and Hulu

This Balwin commercial I think might be the first one I’ve ever seen for Hula, but I loved it.  When he said he thought he was drooling a little, I cracked up.

4.  Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Drive

My kids love their Mr. and Mrs. Potato Heads so they were glued to the TV during this episode.  But I about lost it when I saw the Mrs. break out the angry eyes!

5. It’s Time

The visualization of punching the small animals is what really set this one off for me.  I thought my husband was going to fall off the couch he was laughing so hard

A few other commercials were cute, but nothing to write home about.  What did you think?
