Best Super Bowl Commercials 2012: The Best of the ‘Meh’

At $3.5 million per 30-second spot, companies willing to pay for Super Bowl XLVI commercials are looking for additional ways to make use of their most expensive promotional seconds by releasing their commercials early.

For non-football fans, this means you won’t have to sit around watching the big game on Sunday to join on in the Monday water cooler talk. For football fans, this means you’ll get to brag about knowing which commercials are the best – before they air on television.

If you’re looking for movie trailers, we’ll have a complete list of Superbowl Movie Trailers posted after the big game.

Check out our ever-expanding list of 2012 Super Bowl commercials below. While not everyone has released their ads early, the majority of companies have. From M&Ms’ Ms. Brown, to Acura’s “Seinfeld”, to Toyota “Reinventing” everything, to Audi killing off Team Edward with its headlight – Super Bowl commercials bring out the best (and maybe worst) of each company.

Which ones will be your favorite? Take a look at the ads below and decide:

  1. pretty good list should have added movie trailers to it too

  2. For some reason I can’t play them (on an iPad)

  3. Bark side is the best!

  4. That’s not how you spell Volkswagen

  5. That’s not how you spell Volkswagen.

  6. Where’s the Ameritrade baby???

    • Solitary.

  7. Best Memorable One-liners:
    Pepsi – “Pepsi for all”
    Teleflora – “Give and you shall receive”
    Cadillac – “Go to green hell and see for your self”
    Camry – “Every Camry driver …. has a story – what’s yours?
    Suzuki (eskimo) – “I traded it in”
    Audi (vampires) – “Daylight now in a headlight”

    Best “reruns”:
    Mean Joe Green – Downy
    Matthew Broderick – Honda

    Honorable Mention:
    VW – dog exercises to chase car
    Hyundai – employees singing, humming, and performing
    Kraft – beVita breakfast bar – 2 police officers
    Chevy Volt – explaining to aliens about the electic car

    Budweiser – Canadian recreation league hocky teams/Flash fans
    Kia – Dream Dust/so many super moments/people

    VW did not capitilize on the popularity of the Darth Vader kid
    No Betty White any where

    • Betty White is in an an ad for The Voice.

    • And vw DID capitalize on the vader kid. Watch the “VW – dog exercises to chase car” commercial and keep watching at the end.

  8. Thanks for including our Big Game ad! Just giving everyone a heads up – we have more content about the commercial to the right of the screen. Check it out here:

    Sam – Kia Outreach Team

  9. is that danica patrick????????/// can’t she put herself out of her misery finally?????????????/ she is very annoying

  10. @ Sam KIA-Thanks for including Mr. Sandman in the ad. My mother recorded that song with the Chordettes and still gets royalties. Carmax used one of their songs in a Super Bowl ad last year. Pretty cool stuff for us.

  11. I thought the vast majority were very typical American violence, speed, sex ads, a few with an inkling of an idea but without much imagination. Unfortunately, American ads don’t hold a candle to the best produced in Europe. That said, I thought the best among these were…

    - both Dorritos ads, except for the poor CGI on the kid’s flight
    - Hyundi “Think Fast” – ingenious idea for CPR
    - best line: end of E-Trade Fatherhood, where kid is talking with father and brother Bobby is wandering among the newborns.
    Kid: Bobby! Bobby, what are you doing man?
    Bobby: I’m speed dating.

    Honorable mention:
    - Bridgestone – first one with the curving ball

    Budweiser – using Prohibition – insulting
    Go Daddy ads – Danica really doesn’t get it
    Most of the car ads, especially the Chevy one vs. Ford, which was stupid

    Most Demagogic: Clint Eastwood on Detroit and America for Chrysler

  12. I can’t find the commercial I’m looking for. It might have been post game. It was a car commercial, but I was too busy laughing at it to remember the car! It had bugs planning a trip and climbing into the grill of the car.

  13. No one put up the PSYCH commercial during the pre-show?

  14. Hey where is the Derek Jeter Ford Commercial?

  15. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is
    fantastic, as well as the content!

  16. What’s up colleagues, how is everything, and what you want to say on the topic of this post, in my view its genuinely awesome in support of me.

  17. I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to add to the discussion.
    Usually it is caused by the passion displayed in the post I browsed.
    And on this article Super Bowl Commercials 2012:
    Complete List. I was actually excited enough to drop a comment :) I
    actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do
    not mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like some of these
    remarks come across like written by brain dead
    individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other
    places, I’d like to follow you. Could you list all of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  18. The next important consideration if you are going with discount
    web hosting is how many other people are sharing the same
    server as you are. Therefore, owners should never be put off by a
    low cost price in assuming that the hosting service is of poor quality; this is simply not the case
    with cloud hosting. So, it does not matter whether it is 2
    am or 9 pm, it is always working perfectly well.
