The Best and Worst Super Bowl Commercials

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 10.14.14 AM

Every year, tons of people watch the Super Bowl for the commercials just as much as they watch it for the game–and since the game was underwhelming this year, commercials were really all we had. As with every year lately, people grumbled and whined about the commercial quality throughout, but I think a handful of the ads really stuck out. Of course, there were also some that were simply awful, and there were tons more that I couldn’t even remember an hour after the game ended. Either way, here are the best and the worst commercials that were featured during Seattle’s beatdown on Denver:

Best

Audi grabs a very subtle and ironic Sarah McLachlan laugh when she trys to garner public support for that big-headed demon dog in a sad Sarah McLachlan ASPCA-like commercial.

Jaguar’s #GoodToBeBad spot makes me proud to be a villain and features three terrific actors with equally terrific sports cars.

Tim Tebow found a way to make money by NOT getting signed. Hey, T-Mobile, I don’t have an NFL contract either!

T-Mobile also nonchalantly offered to pay off your current phone contract while mocking overpaid celebrities.

I know there is some backlash for using a soldier’s homecoming to sell beer, but I thought that this particular Budweiser commercial was very tasteful.

Budweiser also melted hearts nation-wide with this adorable golden retriever puppy who is #BestBuds with an iconic Clydesdale.

So I guess Scarlett Johansson’s SodaStream ad wasn’t banned after all? Either way, it’s easily forgiven because she is a national treasure.

Please give me money, #esurancesave30. I will actually beg you.

Worst

Trying to sell trucks with cow sex? No thanks, Chevy.

AT&T and Beats Music showing Ellen Degeneres partying with furries? What?

Jeep is now advertising to hipsters. However, I don’t think they’re selling single gear bicycles yet.

Kid, if you play a football game and then run all the way to Green Bay only to drink a Coke, you’re probably going to die from dehydration.
