Top Super Bowl Ads

I guess this is better late than never, but after reading about the negative backlash some of the Super Bowl ads had received (such as this Groupon one), I decided to focus on the good. Here we go with our Top 5 Super Bowl Commercials of Super Bowl XLV (that's 45 for you non-Roman Numeral experts). Also, these aren't in any order, just know that they're funny.

Brisk and Eminem
I don't know what it is about animated commercials, but they're usually almost always winners. The fact that Eminem really hasn't done commercials before now makes it even funnier.'s Monkeys
Career Builder is very good at making commercials with monkeys in them. And they're almost always funny. Seriously, I mean it. It's just because monkeys are so darn awesome, it's hard to fail when they're involved. Anyway, here was this year's offering.

Bridgestone's "Reply All"
I actually missed this one when it was on live. That's the beauty of the Internet. Awesome screaming and an epic mustache involved too? No way this spot could lose.

Audi's "Release the Hounds"
Kenny G is trying not to laugh at the end of this commercial. Even he knows it's funny.

"Logging" by Snickers
Snickers struck comedy gold last year with Betty White and Abe Vigoda, and this year's offering, featuring Michael Lewis and Roseanne Barr, is just as good.

This Day in History
1990- Nelson Mandela, leader of the movement to end South African apartheid, is released from prison after 27 years.

1990- The same year (and thus, the same day), Buster Douglas knocks out undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.
