Ten of the Best Super Bowl Commercials Ads of the Past Decade
After this Sunday’s Super Bowl another NFL season will have come to a close. For many, it’s been another stressful season of screaming at the TV while glued to a couch, with nothing but a beer in hand, and bag of chips in lap to comfort the loss of his or her favorite team. Still, many of these fans would do anything to watch their team play one more game before the start of next season. Then there's the opposing community. Those anxious for the end of the NFL season.
This community is the wives and girlfriends of the devoted diehards. When the confetti drops and the Vince Lombardi trophy is awarded for the 44th time it might be possible to hear the rejoicing of wives and girlfriends across the country. Not because their favorite team won, but because now, there’s a chance that their significant others will pry themselves from their respective couches to fix the leaky faucets, the squeaky doors, and the drafty windows that have been ignored for the previous twenty weeks.
Basic home maintenance is important and occasionally the Super Bowl, itself is entertaining, but there’s another reason to look forward to these 4-5 hours spent in front of the television: Super Bowl Commercials. Companies with household names spend millions of dollars (recession or not) for their thirty second chance to make you laugh. Here's a little reminder of why some non-football fans look forward to Super Bowl Sunday. Below are ten of the best Super Bowl commercials in no particular order.
