The Super Bowl is not the most watched television program in the world just because of the sport; 75 percent of the world doesn't even care about football. What make the Super Bowl such a spectacle are the coveted commercials. They're so coveted in fact, that the average price for a 30 second ad during this year's game is $3.8 million, according to CBS.
Every company competes for the best commercial. Everyone wants their commercial to be the funniest, the most repeated. So in anticipation of this Super Bowl's epic commercial battle royale, here is a list of some of the best from 2012.
1. Milwaukee's Best Will Ferrell Commercial
Will Ferrell is always hilarious.
2. Acura's Jerry Seinfeld Commercial
The star from Seinfeld's comedic timing is perfect. A brief cameo from Jay Leno doesn't hurt either.
3. Chevy's Graduation Gift Commercial
This is short and simple, but the facial expressions make you want to watch it twice.
4. Budweiser's Flash-Mob Hockey Game Commercial
This ad is off trend, as it's not funny or a car commercial, but it's heartfelt and somewhat nostalgic. It's always wonderful to see people do nice things for strangers. It also only aired in Canada, so here's your chance to see it now if you missed it last year.
5. Honda's Matthew's Day Off Commercial
A classic reference to a classic movie. They even got Matthew Broderick.
So enjoy these commercials and get excited for a new round of ridiculously expensive yet entertaining ads coming this Super Bowl Sunday.
