The Top 10 Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time

January 26, 2009

Whether you watch the Super Bowl just for the commercials, just for the football, or just because nobody will let you turn it over to Spike TV – you love the funny.  Funny Super Bowl commercials are like mother’s milk to a strapping lad like you.  So come on over, we’ve got a bottle full of ha-ha with your name on it.

10. Visa – Kevin Bacon

You are connected to Kevin Bacon, and Visa is out to prove it with this commercial.  All of us are connected to him, in fact.  He’s like the Buddha in that way.  Except Kevin Bacon has had more commercial success in the American film industry than Buddha.

 

9. Bud Light – Rock, Paper, Scissors

Bud Light knows that when it comes down to the last brew at the party, there are no friends and there are no alliances.  There are only winners and losers.  They take this opportunity to show you the foolproof way to win in a prison-rules rock/paper/scissors match.

 

8. T-Mobile – Dwayne Wade v. Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley is a classic.  And, maybe some dumb coed knows who Dwyane Wade is, but history isn’t written by some dumb coed.  It’s written by the people in charge.  And sometimes, like right now, it’s written by bloggers.

 

7. Ameriquest – Cat Killer

Ameriquest is here to tell you that things aren’t always exactly like they seem.  Like, when my girlfriend walked in with me and two other girls and a goat and a 9 iron…that 9 iron wasn’t mine.  I was holding it for a friend.

 

6. FedEx – Castaway

FedEx is so dedicated to delivering their packages, and apparently your privacy, that this dude spent five years marooned with an unopened package. Check out the hilarious consequences of commitment and dedication.

5. Emerald Nuts – Unicorns

Unicorns are like weather vanes for truth.  Everybody knows this, but Emerald Nuts tells it in a new and awesome way – a new and awesome way that has a lot to do with my three favorite things.  Those being: the Easter Bunny, Santa, and irresponsible parenting.

 

4. Doritos – Mouse Trap

In this spot, a refined gentlemen enjoys a tasty bag of Doritos while waiting and watching his elegantly-laid trap for a wily mouse infesting his home.  (You know he's classy because of the music.)

 

3. Sierra Mist – Beard Comb Over

[video]arc:content:spike.com:b676a740-8391-4257-b8ea-c713f8e5279d[/video]

I have personal experience with anti-beard hate crimes.  To me, this is less a work of comedy and more a work of dramatic realism.  However, I guess Mexican people laugh at Carlos Mencia.  So, here ya go.

 

2. Bud Light – Breath of Fire

[video]arc:content:spike.com:ccc92bb0-b91a-4ea8-bd05-20bb192a9f1a[/video]

This commercial is like Hansel – it’s so hot right now.  Bud Light is the king of awesome beer commercials.  They always have been and always will be.  How did I choose the best Bud Light commercial?  I wrote the names of all of them on Bud Lights, started chugging, and the bottle I puked on was “Breath of Fire.” Enjoy.

 

1. Reebok – Terry Tate Office Linebacker

[video]arc:content:spike.com:afe4a82c-e2f8-4749-a4af-1889439a8a04[/video]

Bud Light is the king of beer commercials, but gol’ dangit if this isn’t the funniest Super Bowl commercial in the history of Super Bowl commercials.  Terry Tate, bless you, for your work ethic and brutish violence are two characteristics that have imbued everything that I’ve done since I saw this commercial.
