  1. Bubly: “Bubly vs. Buble”

Michael Buble stars in the sparkling water ad, as he tries to play off the company name as if it were his own. He finds himself distraught that the brand is not pronounced like his last name. Buble wittingly mocks a grocery store worker named “Dave” and even crosses off the “Bubly” on the cans, replacing it with “Buble”. It’s a great ad but there was room for improvement. 8 out of 10.

  1. NFL: “The 100-Year Game”

The NFL will celebrate its 100th season next year and what better way to promote than with the prominent halftime ad slot. The commercial begins with Marshawn Lynch trying to steal some cake which causes the football cake-topper to fall. The football lies on the ground untouched, soon prompting numerous NFL celebrities – Peyton Manning, Jerry Rice and Barry Sanders among them – to participate in an all-out scrum. The ad waxes nostalgia, but does so in a humorous way. 9 out of 10.

  1. Mint Mobile Wireless: “Chunky Style Milk? That’s Not Right”

Mint Mobile, a little-known phone provider, makes a big statement with this ad. The comedic timing is perfect in this commercial all the way around, which is largely why it is so funny. Plus, it is creative. Who thinks of chunky milk? When the actor goes “aw man that’s not right” it leaves viewers no choice but to bust out laughing. 9 out of 10.

  1. Hyundai: “The Elevator”

This was one of the first commercials to air and instantaneously I knew it’d be hard to top. The ad pokes fun at some of life’s most miserable occurrences, such as root canals, jury duty and “the talk” and contrast them to easy-going Shopper Assurance feature from Hyundai. Once you adding actor Jason Bateman’s witty remarks for amusement, you’ll have realized that Hyundai created a dynamite commercial. 10 out of 10.

  1. Audi: “Cashew”

I often say that a good Super Bowl commercial has to either have surprise or wit. The best combine both but it is oh-so rare. The deep, belly-laughs an ad produces often come from the former and there is no better example of that than Audi’s slot this year. At first, you see man walking through a wheat field and you’re puzzled as to what’s happening. He soon meets his grandpa, who shows him his brand-new Audi in his barn. Once the man steps inside, he relishes the experience, but all of a sudden his body jerks. I’ll save the surprise for you, but I can guarantee that this is best Super Bowl commercial I have seen in a long time. 11 out of 10.
