I Only Watch for the Commercials

Super Bowl Sunday is a major day in the United States; some may even call it a holiday. Many people watch the Super Bowl to support their team, but some watch it only to be included in a social event, and others simply watch for the infamous commercials.

This year there was a large variety of commercials. From a romance between cows to a herd of body builders running down the street to get a spray tan, this year’s Super Bowl commercials had it all.

These were the best and the worst Superbowl XLVIII commercials. 

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.


  • Seinfeld reunion: This commercial brought back Jerry & Paul Newman at Tom’s Diner, being as witty as ever. This won many viewers over, as it was a huge surprise. It was very well executed, and made many viewers miss Seinfeld all over again.
  • Budweiser’s Puppy Love and Lt. Chuck Nadd: This puppy love commercial has been one most talked about commercials, which brought many tears to viewers faces and some just pure happiness. Although I’m not exactly sure what it has to do with beer, it got a lot of attention. On the other hand, the Lt. Nadd commercial was very well done by Budweiser. It was a very touching commercial and what even made it more effective was that they showed Lt. Chuck Nadd and his wife at the Superbowl right after the commercial was aired. My hat is off to you, Budweiser.
  • Audi’s Dober-hua-hua: This had to be my favorite of the commercials this year. It was silly, creative, and how can you not love that dober-hua-hua for eating Sara McLachlan’s guitar?
  • Pistachios: I enjoyed Steven Colbert and the eagle featured in these commercials. They were very effective in my opinion due to the fact that they were split up into three 15 second mini commercials, each one funnier than the last.
  • Doritos’ Time Machine: This one was very intriguing and had me laughing for a good five minutes after it was over. I have to give major props to Doritos because their commercials are always consistent in the aspect of their hilarity, and always leave viewers waiting for more.
  • Bud Light: I liked the Bud Light commercial  solely based on  the fact that the random guy picked to be in the commercial had absolutely no idea what was going on. I have to admit, if I was in his position I would’ve freaked out. That would be an epic night, right?



  • GoDaddy: I don’t appreciate the Go Daddy commercials due to the sexist messages displayed throughout. I didn’t really care to see a bunch of shirtless body builders, as well as a buff Danica Patrick, running down the street to get a spray tan.
  • Maserati Ghibli: I liked this commercial at first because I am a huge fan of Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis, but I was very dissapointed to find out it was a Maserati commercial. I would’ve loved this commercial if it was a commercial for a sequel to “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” but unfortunately it was just for a car I’ll never be able to afford.
  • CarMax: Even though I am a fan of a good slow clap every now and then, I thought it was a bit of an outdated commercial idea. The puppy version of this commercial, on the other hand, is a completely different story.
