The Five Best Super Bowl Ads

I thought it was kind of a weak year for Super Bowl ads, and so far, you seem to agree. Still, there were a few ads worthy of a second look. Here are my picks for the five best; what are yours? Tell me in the comments below.

Bud Light "Rock, Paper, Scissors"
Call me juvenile, but I've been laughing at "I threw a rock" for, what, almost 24 hours now?

Nationwide Insurance
The most anticipated ad of this Super Bowl actually managed to be pretty darn funny. K-Fed rapping along with himself on the tiny TV was fantastic.

Three more, so

Late Show with David Letterman

Letterman. Oprah. Domestic bliss. This was 10 seconds chock-full of awesome.

Sierra Mist "beard-combover"
I'm not going to pretend this ad has anything to do with Sierra Mist. It does, however, have everything to do with Jim Gaffigan in questionable shorts and seriously bad hair, which is good enough for me. The roller skates were a nice touch, too.

Emerald Nuts
I love the premise of Robert Goulet as a guy who sneaks into your office to mess with stuff in the middle of the day; he just looks so gleeful when he dumps the coffee on the keyboard. But mostly, I'm just glad to know there's a proven antidote for Goulet.

Honorable Mention: Sprint's "connectile dysfunction" ad. All it was missing was the guy throwing a football around at the end.

I liked the one with all the dogs. I'm not sure what it was for, but there was a scruffy looking dog with bad luck, until he got splashed with muddy water to make him look like a dalmatian, and then he went to ride on a float in a parade. I thought that it was too precious for words!!!

Bud Light "Rock, Paper, Scissors" was my Favorite. A close second was the "Blockbuster" ad from the pet shop. Loved Dave and Oprah too.

The Robert Goulet Almond ad had me gafawwing... My 5 and 7 year olds loved it, too, though it was tough to describe who robert Goulet was. But, good for him!! i was ready for him to sing "C'est moi, c'est moi...Tis I"
