Super Bowl XL Commercials!

So, how about those commercials?

While countless people are shedding tears of joy (or sadness) over the Steelers victory in Super Bowl XL, just as many fans will be debating the funniest, saddest and most outrageous commercials that ran during the game. Which ones were worth every penny of the reported $2.5 million pricetag and which ones flopped?

To help refresh your memory, we've got a wide array of the commercials linked below for you to enjoy. Relive MacGyver's spending spree with his MasterCard, get another glimpse of the Careerbuilder.com monkeys or watch a replay of the Whopperettes!

After you've watched the commercials again, cast your vote in the SportsNation poll!

Watch and Vote!




I liked the Fed-Ex commercial with the cavemen! Hysterical!! Definitely my favorite.

Close runner ups for me were the Sprint cell phone with the 'built in safety feature' and the Anheuser-Busch 'streaking sheep'.


What was your favorite?

The streaking sheep was a big hit with my Heat Transfer professor.

My personal favorite was the beer stealing bear Budlight commercial... I did not see that coming... I thought it was kinda funny when the guy was holding off the bear with the budlight... when his buddy ran by and stole it I was crackin' up...

The cellphone theft deterrent was my 2nd favorite.

I liked the one where the guys went on top of the roof and each said they were up there to fix something and had beer in hand... then the last guy comes up and says he is there to fix the roof and he falls through the roof.

:lol:

Mine too...that was classic. I was also kinda chuckling and then the dude whipped past and nabbed his beer...it was completely unexpected...I was knee slapping.

Fed Ex was pretty good..."Not my problem" was a classic line.

I enjoyed all of the Bud/Bud Light commercials, but the "Magic Fridge" one had to be my favorite out of those. I also liked the Michelob ad when the hot chick got open for the pass, then got "jacked up" by the guy. She later got revenge on him. I'd also have to agree that the Fed Ex Caveman spot was hilarious.

FedEX was by far my favorite. The Bud bear commercial had me rolling too. Here's ESPN's Sportsnation poll...

How can they not have the FedEX commercial in the poll??
