The Super Bowl Ads You Might Actually Want to See Again

Sure, Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness got their spots out to eager eyeballs, but another old Star Trek alumni also made his Super Bowl debut, a Budweiser ad made grown men weep, and some robots wrecked the place.

Iron Man 3 ran this ad:

And cheekily promised an extended look online, only to deliver this:

Star Trek Into Darkness told everybody how much better it was than them:

While, in some markets, Wil Wheaton got to be in a Super Bowl commercial!

And we’ll admit it. The use of “Landslide” is just cruel in this context.

I embed this video purely because somebody in my Twitter feed, and I wish I could remember who, suggested that these robot women be on hand to disrupt all gross, sexist, gender-stereotyping Super Bowl commercials, and that is an effort I am completely behind.

    No love for the Amy Poehler Best Buy ad? That was one of my faves.

    You know, CumberVillian probably is better at everything. I’ll go ahead and believe him.

    I liked the movie trailers, but did they really deserve trailers of their own?

    Also: commercials are a pizza burn on the roof of the Earth’s mouth.

    I’m sitting here crying over a beer commercial. And I don’t even like beer. Guess someone did something right.

    Ok, I’m British, couldn’t give a toss about the super bowl, but bloody hell, am I crying buckets right now over that Bud advert. *sniffles and wipes snotty nose* and I only wanted to see Iron Man….

    Likewise. I’m telling myself that’s because I’m a horse person, but I think I’m lying to myself; I suspect even if I wasn’t a rider and horse-owner I’d still be sniffling over that one.

    Am I the only one to LOVE the Dodge Ram OMG Farmers are great commercials I dunno, maybe its cause I was raised by two farmers kids who listened to Paul Harvey religiously. But for reals, that was the one that gave me the feels.

    Oh shoot, when did Budweiser become Warhorse? Joey?
