Superbowl XLV

It's that time of year again!  Time to gather the family, some friends, and maybe even the creepy guy from your office together around the TV for the greatest event in American television;  Superbowl Commercials! 

It has become a tradition in many homes to watch "the game" - Yeah, right!  No one actually watches the game anymore.  Except for the fans of whatever particular teams happen to be in the superbowl.  But lets be honest here, even those people look forward to the ads for that year. 
We wait for new funny ads to make us laugh, hope for sequels to our past favorite ads, or just wait for and drool over the next Go-Daddy commercial.  Has any company ever better targeted their audience in the past.... I think not.

I, like the rest of you, have certain ads that will always be in the front of my mind as my favorites.
The Budweiser Frogs for example, is a classic Superbowl ad that everyone knows about and still talks about or at least mocks in some way.  Doritos is another company that has consistently delivered memorable ads. My favorite being the one with a bird dressed in WWII era pilots clothing that ends up face first in a garage door.  I remember laughing my ass off during that one.
On the not-funny side of the coin, there are the serious commercials.  Not all of them are memorable, but some of them do a good job of bringing a tear to your eye.  

So what Superbowl ads are most memorable to you?   It's feedback time kiddies!
