The second best part about the Super Bowl other than the game itself? The commercials!
Throughout the 56 years of Super Bowl history, there have been hundreds of commercials, some great, some not-so-great.
The top 5 Super Bowl Commercials must then be commercials that stand out from among the rest. The commercials below all do just that, with elements of humor, creativity, and forward looking perspective that carried them worth our viewing.
#5 Mountain Dew Bohemian Rhapsody (2000)----- This delightful commercial takes the American classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” and sings of why Mountain Dew is “Fantastico.”
#4 Pepsi Britney Spears Commercial (2003)------- This commercial was made before Britney Spears, back when she was famous for singing and not all the drama. And here she did a great job helping to promote the Pepsi brand, with the famous tagline: “Pepsi, for those who think young.”
#3 Monster.com (1999)------A sarcastic but touching commercial, with your kids proclaiming their desire for the dim future that at times seems promised to them. Efficient and effective.
#2 Reebok Terry Tate Office Linebacker (2003)------This could arguably be number one, but number two isn’t such a shabby spot to hold. This hilarious commercial from Reebok features a Terry Crews like man keeping order in an office building when people get out of line. Hard-hitter!
#1 Apple Macintosh Ad (1984)-----Rest In Peace to the late great Steve Jobs. This commercial is number one not only in honor of that man, but because the creativeness, forward looking view and originality of this commercial is the same creativeness, forward looking view and originality that has made Apple an icon and major player in human history.
