Greatest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time

PeterG99
For almost half of a century, the Super Bowl has had annual games where two football teams compete for… oh who cares, aren't we all here for the commercials? Whether you enjoy the game or not, the humorous, well-created, and often touching commercials are what bring everyone together each year. Almost 50 years worth of stellar commercials have been shown on T.V. , and this list is the massive community's choice of which one they enjoyed the most.

The Top Ten

1 1984 - Apple (1984)

This commercial may not be as touching or funny as the rest of the commercials, but it definitely had an impact on Apple and the entire industry. With IMDb as a slave holder and Apple breaking everyone free from it, the way this commercial was presented did, in fact, prove that 1984 would not be like 1984. - PeterG99

Greatest COMMERCIAL of all time. - Pony

2 Mean Joe Greene - Coca Cola (1980)

He's not mean at all! This touching commercial shows friendship and bonding better than any Budweiser commercial because not only is the product actually involved, but we get sweet dialogue between the player and the kid. Sharing is the topic of almost all these drink commercials, and boy does this one do it right, - PeterG99

This super bowl commercial was amazing. Hands down my favorite and the best. I love this one. - steelers1979

3 The Showdown - McDonald's (1993)

Larry Bird and Michael Jordan compete in an intense game for a legitimate prize: make the loser watch you eat McDonald's. It made "nothing but net" a thing and truly became a classic that aged like Golden Fries. - PeterG99

4 Terry Tate, Office Linebacker - Reebok (2003)

This is just plain humorous. Terry Tate was sent to an office to tackle and yell at rule breakers, and it provides tons of laughs for those sick of seeing Betty White tackled. - PeterG99

5 The Force - Volkswagen (2011)

This one is an instant classic. A little kid wants to be Darth Vader and attempts to use the force on multiple things, and gets amazed when he thinks he started a Vorkswagen. All this to Darth Vader's theme. - PeterG99

6 Huluboratory - Hulu Plus (2012)

This one is not often mentioned in Best of All Time lists, and it makes me not want to watch Hulu Plus, but it's numerous references to other shows and just the fact that the company is making an evil organization out of themselves makes me not care. This ad is awesome. - PeterG99

7 The Man Your Man Could Smell Like - Old Spice (2010)

Who knew Old Spice would work so well with women? It may not have actually aired during the Superbowl, but letting it viral online was a genius decision. - PeterG99

8 Cream or Cookie - Oreo (2013)

Here's my proof that recent commercials still have some steam. It's the age old debate about Oreos with tons of destruction, and in a library for good measure. Genius. - PeterG99

9 Pepsi - Security Camera (1996)
10 Snickers - Betty White (2010)

The Contenders

11 Budweiser Frogs - Budweiser (1995)

Budweiser is known today for their touching animal commercials that have nothing to do with beer, but their classic frog commercial popularized their jingle and provided simple humor. - PeterG99

12 Doritos - Magic Ball (2009)
13 Return of the E-Trade baby (2008)
14 Best Fans Ever - NFL (2011)

It's not quite clear what was being advertised, but come on, what better way is there to get you ready for the Superbowl than a large array of T.V. show characters doing it? - PeterG99

15 Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny meet for the first time - Nike (1992)
16 Puppy Monkey Baby (2016)

WHY

17 Puppy Love - Budweiser (2014)
18 Where's the Beef? - Wendy's (1984)

This is my grandmas commercials

19 Kim Kardashian's Save The Data - T Mobile (2015)

lol

20 The Brady Bunch - Snickers (2015)

Featuring Danny Trejo as Marcia and Steve Buscemi as Jan - Billyv

21 ''What’s Up” - Budweiser (2000)
22 Clown - Walmart (2010)
23 Crackin' Gangnam Style - Pistachios (2013)
24 Bolder Than Bold - Butterfinger (2016)

IoI not lol

(The first one in caps is IOI where the second one in caps is LOL)

25 Lost Dog - Budweiser (2015)
26 Leon Sandcastle - NFL Draft (2013)
27 How You Like Me Now - Kia (2010)
28 Alexa Loses Her Voice - Amazon (2018)

It certainly was the best commercial of 2018, at the very least.

29 It’s Mine - Coke (2008)

Funny

30 It's a Tide Ad - Tide (2018)
