After the phenomenal Super Bowl XLVII with the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, John Harbaugh and his quarterback Joe Flacco overcame the surge — and the 34-minute blackout at the Superdome — to win the game 34-31. With the San Francisco 49ers mismanaging the clock and Colin Kaepernick‘s inability to run a two-minute drill effectively, the Ravens scraped one out in the final minutes of the game. After all that commotion, the commercials were much the same. Close to the second half, the real commercials decided to show up, and with that, these are Philly Fantasy Sports Top 10 selections for best Super Bowl XLVII commercials:
Oreo “Whisper Fight”
I enjoyed this one. Subtly funny.
M & M “Love Ballad”
What are friends for when you have friends like Ms. Chocolate…
Taco Bell “Viva Young”
Not funny in a funny kind of way but charming in a Taco Bell kinda way.
Toyota RAV 4 “Wish Granted”
The Rock Milk “Morning Run”
Volkwagen “Get In. Get Happy.”
Minnesota people. Represent. Not just about Harley Davidson motorcycles and bratwursts.
Bud Light “Journey”
I liked this one. Perhaps the voodoo dolls caused the power outage. Or not.
Deion Sanders NFL “Leon Sandcastle”
Funny. Very funny. Kind of a jilt on Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and others.
Kia Motors “Hot Bots”
Kia Motors got double honors this Super Bowl. I think the advertising people left Volkswagen and came here.
Kia Motors “Space Babies”
This one had lots of charm to it — and the babies faces were priceless as they rocketed to Earth.
