Here's the finally tally of all the Super Bowl commercials.

Once again, the one I liked best - the Audi Doberhuahua commercial - didn't make it into the top 20. How can you not bust out laughing the second Sarah McLachlan appears on screen? At least the 80's Radio Shack ad and the cute as heck Cheerios ad made the top 10.

The Bud ad with Arnie and the rest blew, though.

So, I guess they didn't count the Winter Soldier trailer at 6 pm as part of it. Transforms and Spiderman 2 being near the bottom doesn't surprise me. Not a love for the U2 give away which made a million dollars for AIDS in Africa. I liked most of the ads especially the Radio Shack one.

This was #1 for me too and I'm confused why it's not more popular.
Maybe the general public just doesn't connect Sarah as being the voice behind those sad dog ads. Plus it aired pretty late in the game.

I went nuts for the Matrix ad for the new Kia. I also liked Dylan's Chrysler ad even as I was astounded to see Dylan do a car commercial.

Everyone at the party I was at thought it was odd he did an ad for an Italian car company (they are owned by FIAT).

The Audi commercial was hands down my favorite. The Radio Shack ad was cute the first time. By the third time, I'd had enough. Hogan needs to work on his tan before WrestleMania.

Deadspin had a pretty great rant about the song "You Sexy Thing" that sums up my feelings about advertisers in general: http://deadspin.com/fuck-you-you-sexy-thing-1514905926

The Audi ad was hands down the winner in what I consider a year where the commercials were as disappointing as the game itself.

The Doritos time travel commercial was probably my second favorite. The Radio Shack ad was amusing, though kind of sad considering Radio Shack is really little more than a cell phone reseller anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Disappointed they didn't include the Diet Dew "Dale Call" ad just because it came between the final gun and the post-game show. That was the only one all night that made me laugh out loud, and I don't like NASCAR.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

WTF...I would have bet anything that the Doberhuahua commercial would be rated number one. No other commercial was even close to it.

My Favs:

1. Audi Doberhuahua
2. Radio Shack 80's throwback
3. Dannon Oikos/John Stamos
4. Bull being taken out to Stud

Nothing else impressed me at all.

And was Dylan's face botoxed to hell in that car commercial?

I thought the Doberhuahua was ..eh. A bit overdone.

But then I thought the GoDaddy spray tan was one of the best and it's bottom five on that list.

I say it every year and I will say it again: stop GoDaddy. Just stop it with the horrible commercials. Just. Stop.

The same goes for Radio Shack. This is not the first time they've tried to freshen up their image and like the other times, it just totally fell flat for me. I don't get the love for it: as much as people said they liked the 80s spot, I'm absolutely certain that 99.99% of the viewing audience would still rather go to some other place like Best Buy than go to a store with niche gadgets that are overpriced.

Not to derail the thread entirely, but I always felt Radio Shack went in the wrong direction when they switched from radio parts to gadgets. I wish there was a nationally branded chain where you could go to get computer parts at a semi-reasonable price, and the transition would have been a natural one for them.

I agree, though that's been tried and failed twice, and one of those failures was a Radio Shack-owned chain...Computer City. (The other was CompUSA, who acquired Computer City from Radio Shack.)

But yeah, being able to walk down the block to my local Radio Shack to grab a CPU fan or some RAM would have been handy a few years ago when I lived right by one.

They aren't national, but there is a regional chain here on the east coast that is like that: Micro Center.

Same thing with TigerDirect (who bought some of the CompUSA stores around here), there's just not enough of them. Same day delivery is probably coming before more stores.
