With the Super Bowl less than two weeks away, I thought I would rank the top 12 Super Bowl commercials of all time. I originally had 10, but I couldn’t leave out the great “Wassup” or “Farmer” commercials. So here are my top 12 commercials, feel free to comment below and let me know which Super Bowl commercial is your favorite.
12. Budweiser- Wassup, 2000
I wish they still made commercials like this one.
11. Ram Trucks – Farmer, 2013
The legendary voice of Paul Harvey showing the difficult life of a farmer, made this commercial really stick out.
10. McDonald’s – The Showdown, 1993
Larry Bird and Michael Jordan dueling it out for a Big Mac, trust me when I say that you’ll want McDonalds after watching this.
9. Pepsi – Cindy Crawford, 1991
The beautiful Cindy Crawford wearing jean shorts and drinking Pepsi, it doesn’t get any better than that. I’m sure Pepsi sells went up after this aired.
8. Budweiser – Frogs, 1995
A simple and elegant commercial, that I still laugh at every time I see it.
7. Doritos – Man’s Best Friend, 2012
Dog bribes owner with a bag of Doritos, after burying the missing cat.
6. Snickers – Playing Like Betty White, 2010
I fell like Snickers has gone overboard with this commercial, but the first one is still a classic.
5. Budweiser – Respect, 2002
The post 9/11 commercial only aired once, so that Budweiser wouldn’t benefit from the tragic events.
4. Volkswagen – The Force, 2009
A classic and it only gets better the more you watch it.
3. Coke – Hey, Kid! Catch, 1979
The oldest commercial on this list, it features “Mean Joe” Greene after a game and a child offers the injured Greene a coke, and he grabs the bottle and guzzles. Greene said it took 18 takes for him to successfully complete the commercial.
2. Apple – 1984, 1984
The Ridley Scott directed commercial is one of the greatest of all time, it’s hard to believe that this commercial only ran one time.
1. Reebok – Terry Tate, 2002
This has to be the funniest commercial I’ve ever seen. Terry Tate plays office linebacker, punishing any employee who breaks office rules.
