Another Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials


Let’s fast-forward through this pesky football game so we can get the good stuff. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for another top 10 Super Bowl commercials.

For this list, we’re choosing more TV ads that were originally created for or aired in conjunction with a Super Bowl. If you’re wondering where Mean Joe Greene and the Budweiser frogs are, be sure to check out our original list of the Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials. Now grab the nachos, take to your designated seat on the couch and let the games begin.

#10: “The Joy of Pepsi”
Pepsi (2002)

Britney Spears’ music is always bubbly and explosively fun, making her the perfect spokesperson for Pepsi. And this ad, which aired during Super Bowl XXXVI (36), has all the ingredients of a great music video, being infectiously catchy while also expressing something resembling a narrative. Spears’ exceptionally choreographed display captivates everyone from a slacking blue-collar worker to former republican presidential candidate Bob Dole. Even a few Coca-Cola employees are drawn in. Spears thus demonstrates that the joy of Pepsi is universal, regardless of your class, age, or occupation. As much as the world changes, this cola never will.

#9: “The Next Big Thing”
Samsung (2013)

Reminiscent of a Judd Apatow comedy, this commercial from Super Bowl XLVII (47) finds Seth Rogen running into Paul Rudd in the Samsung office lobby. The actors are overcome with petty jealously upon realizing they’re up for the same position. Shooting various immature insults at one another, you almost expect one of them to say, “You know how I know you’re gay?” Finally, a sleazy agent played by Bob Odenkirk arrives and insists they work together. The two pitch half-assed ideas for the next big thing, only to be upstaged by LeBron James via tablet.

#8: “Magic Fridge”
Bud Light (2006)

No Super Bowl party is complete without a fridge stocked with cold ones. But what if you don’t want to share your hoard of Bud Light with your buddies? The main character in this Super Bowl XL (40) commercial thinks of a seemingly foolproof solution by installing a secret revolving wall in his apartment. Unfortunately, he forgot to factor in his next-door neighbors. Definitely one of the funniest and most clever commercials of the past decade, this setup appeals to every dude’s dream of stumbling upon a bountiful supply of free booze. All hail the magic fridge!

#7: “Imported from Detroit”
Chrysler (2011)

Detroit is probably one of the last American cities any person would want to live in. This Chrysler commercial from Super Bowl XLV (45) doesn’t shy away from Detroit’s grittier side, but it also demonstrates that this is a proud city composed of hard workers. Eminem’s Oscar-winning song, “Lose Yourself,” creates a fitting mood, showing that great passion and determination can still come from the shadiest corners of the country. It might not appear very glamorous or welcoming, but the Motor City is the only place with the fortitude to produce a luxury vehicle like the Chrysler 200.

#6: “Monks”
Xerox (1977)

Able to print faster than any of its predecessors, the Xerox 9200 Duplicating System was one of the most progressive stepping-stones in the photocopier’s evolution. This innovative device couldn’t have come at a better time for Brother Dominic, who’s charged with inscribing 500 copies of a document by hand. Thanks to the good folks at Xerox, the monk is able to finish a lifetime of painstaking labor in one afternoon. Smart and humorous, this commercial from Super Bowl XI (11) reveals that the Xerox 9200 was truly nothing short of a miracle.

#5: “Clydesdale Respect”
Budweiser (2002)

Where most beer commercials put an emphasis on partying and good times, this Budweiser advertisement from Super Bowl XXXVI (36) somberly salutes the people who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. Pulling an iconic red wagon, a unit of the legendary and majestic Budweiser Clydesdales makes its way across the snowy countryside from a humble farmhouse, to a small town, to the city of New York. As the horses take a bow before the land, we’re reminded that even minute-long commercials are capable of evoking deep emotions. It’s poignant. It’s patriotic. It’s a pitch perfect tribute.

#4: “Pug Attack”
Doritos (2011)

The annual Crash the Super Bowl contest has produced one hilarious fan-made Doritos commercial after another. “Pug Attack,” which aired during Super Bowl XLV (45), is a notable standout, teaching us never to tease a dog with treats. Waving a chip around, a childish man mockingly tries to make his girlfriend’s pet ram into the glass door. Charging forward in slow motion, the dog leaves the audience on the edge of their seats. The commercial offers an uproarious comedic payoff as the pug triumphantly breaks through the door and claims what’s rightfully his.

#3: “Just My Shell”
M&M’s (2012)

M&M’s have worked a fair deal of sexual overtones into their Super Bowl commercials. While “I Would Do Anything For Love” is a fine example, perhaps the most blatant innuendo occurs in this Super Bowl XLVI (46) ad. Covered in a milky brown shell, it’s easy to assume that the professional and glasses-wearing Ms. Brown is nude. Even Red mistakes Brown’s shell coating for her birthday suit, prompting him to take it all off. Flexing and wiggling his body to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” Red leaves us all wondering how the M&M anatomy works.

#2: “Apartment 10G”
Diet Pepsi (1987)

In the midst of his work on “Family Ties" and in the “Back to the Future” franchise, Michael J. Fox brings his unparalleled charm and comedic timing to this Super Bowl XXI (21) commercial in which a striking new neighbor drops by with a thirst for Diet Pepsi. Fresh out of soda, Fox refuses to give up. He ventures down the fire escape, and overcomes rain, traffic, dogs, biker gangs, and his own locked window to get that Diet Pepsi. It appears that Fox’s efforts have been for nothing when it’s revealed that the neighbor has a roommate named Danny. Once Danielle shows up, however, Michael realizes he’ll have to make a second trip.

Before we take a knee to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

- “Cast Away”
FedEx (2003)

- “Searching”
Google (2010)

- “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Mountain Dew (2000)

- “Joe Montana Stain”
Tide (2013)

- “Mosquito”
Tabasco Sauce (1998)

#1: “Cat Herders”
Electronic Data Systems (2000)

The idea of cowboys herding cats is every bit as silly as it sounds. What makes this Super Bowl XXXIV (34) commercial so funny is how seriously the concept is taken. The production values are first-rate, the actors play their roles with straight faces, and everybody involved paints cat herding as the noblest of professions. While the premise has little to do with Electronic Data Systems, you can’t help but smile at something so ridiculous and yet so epic. It goes to show that any idea can work in the hands of brilliant minds.
