Super Bowl Commercials 2012: What Was Your Favorite?

From the Doritos baby to Ferris Bueller, Super Bowl Sunday delivered plenty of laughs. But what ad reigned supreme?

The New York Giants may have been the big winners Sunday, but one question remains: What was the best Super Bowl commercial of 2012?

This year's ads featured plenty of Super Bowl Sunday staples—funny babies, cute dogs and a bunch of celebrities (Jerry Seinfeld, Clint Eastwood, Betty White and David Beckham, to name a few).

The Associated Press reports that companies paid an average of $3.5 million for a 30-second spot during Sunday's game, which was expected to attract 111 million-plus fans. 

However, nearly half of the 70 Super Bowl advertisers circulated their ads online in the days leading up to the game. By Sunday, Honda's CRV-ad with Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller had been viewed more than 10 million times, the Miami Herald reports. The VW-chasing dog had more than 2 million views.

Who Cares? I'm still not getting over the Ravens NOT being there. Bet they would have been a much better match then the Patriots.

i actually think the commercials are the best part of the super bowl anyway, regardless of what astronically overpaid football team is running up and down a field, chasing a ball and each other. So much money spent on something such as this is unbelievable. Companies and private individuals, and definitely overpaid football players and coaches ought to expend some of their monies on families struggling everyday to make ends meet, children, homeless, and any other truly worthwhile cause. That's my opinion.
