Did you get a little emotional during the Budweiser - Clydesdale commerical? Did the room go quiet when the amazing tones of the great late Paul Harvey took over the Dodge commercial? Those who didn't take a break from Super Bowl 47 during the commercials on Sunday got the chance to make new friends like Volkswagen's "Jamaican Dave" and learn about what celebrities like Amy Poehler know -- or don't know -- about electronics at Best Buy. They're just a couple of ads that aired during the big game.
Other spots featured Psy showing off his Pistachio-cracking style, a Speed Stick user staying calm in a tough situation at a laundromat, and Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd fighting over which one of them would help Samsung usher in "the next big thing." Like previous years, GoDaddy.com turned a few heads with their new spot, which included a very wet, and noisy kiss between model Bar Refaeli and supposed GoDaddy employee Walter. Meanwhile, Tracy Morgan, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Stevie Wonder, Willem Dafoe and Kayley Cuoco all got laughs with their ad cameos. Likewise, Oreo scored with a whisper fight in a library over which part of the treat is the best, and M&Ms found success with Red's cover of Meatloaf's hit "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)."
Overall, the creativity was certainly down. Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Audi, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes and Doritos were also among the contributors to the Super Bowl 47 commercials, which reportedly cost about four-million-dollars for a 30-second spot.
