OK, so the top 10 list is out from USAToday.com. Below is a list of what viewers voted as the top 10 Ads. In my opinion, this years ads were sub-par at best. The game was great, and my congrats go out to the Giants and their fans. Below the official Top10 list, is my Top10 list. Try as a might, I could only come up with 5 commercials that I really liked.

1. Budweiser - Dog trains Clydesdale
2. FedEx - Homing Pigeons
3. Bridgestone - Critters screaming at oncoming car
4. Doritos - Mouse goes for entire bag
5. Bud Lite - Bud Lite comes with fire breathing ability
6. Bud Lite - Hidden Bud bottles at wine and cheese party
7. Coca Cola - Battling Parade Balloons
8. Diet Pepsi Max - People wake up after drinking Max
9. Planters - Men find unattractive women alluring
10. Tide - Talking stain

My top 10 doesn't quite look like that

1. FedEx - Homing Pigeons, this one cracked me up
2. Bud Lite - Caveman invents wheel to get rock cooler to party. Best lines "Wheel Suck!", and "Bottle Opener Suck!"
3. Ads for the Daytona 500
4. Coca Cola - Battling Parade Balloons.
5. There is no number 5, the rest of the commercials kinda stunk.
6. See #5
7. See #5
8. See #5
9. See #5
10. See # 5

Well, I liked the "Rocky Balboa" Clydesdale, but my favorite was the Will Ferrell "Suck It".  I DID give my MOST ATTENTIVE watch to the Go Daddy teaser with Danica Patrick.

I thought ALMOST all of them really stunk up the tube.  I am not into babies or puking so couldn't enjoy the E-Trades like a lot of people did.  It seemed to me like most of those expensive commercials were designed by a bunch of "Boards of Directors", and NOT by the actual Talent at the ad agencies involved.   Thank goodness that Bud and Bud Light ads were there, even if most of them didn't grab me.  The others were pathetic.  In fact---WORST EVER! 

Tip of the hat to the Giants for knocking off my #2's, the Patriots!

I agree with you. The commercials were lackluster at best but the Baby Investor with the throw-up on the keyboard was hillarious. I for sure got a good laugh from that one.

I've gotta agree with y'all -- the commercials did suck this year.  I thought last year's batch set the standard for lameness, but this year's crop lowered the bar even more.  My fave was the one with the lizards (I can't remember what the heck it was for) and the chick with the silver top: I swear I saw one of the lizards fart late in the commercial, but they only aired it once, so my buds are convinced I smoked too many... buds..  Thank goodness they have all the ads online so I'll be able to check and see who is right.

I agree with mikeyfan. I think they sucked . IMO over the past 4-5 years they went down hill on being funny anyway. I gota small chuckle out of the E-Trade one with the kid spittin up. Otherwise they were pretty dull.

Personnelly, I thought the ads sucked this year.  yes Bud Light came through with some good ads and I liked both the Bridgestone and FedEx commerical but most of the commericals this year were quite lame.   I mean, what are the ad companies doing, don't they realize this is the one time of the year that funny is what people want and look forward too.  Make a good funny commerical and people will remember your product. 

Althought, I would have like to seen Danica exposed!!!!! But not on "Go Daddy.com" if you know what I mean.

My top 3:

1.  The Bridgestone commercial where the driver hits the gas when he sees Richard Simmons on the road in front of him.

2.  The Will Ferell Bud Light commercial.... "suck one".

3.  Fire breathing no longer available in Bud Light.
