Just like happens ever year after the Super Bowl, the halftime show and the commercials following Super Bowl XLIV, are being evaluated as much as the game. About a dozen auto-related companies aired commercials, including Cars.com.
It’s obviously a subjective list, but Cars.com, and its perfectly named blog, Kicking Tires, just picked its top-10 cars commercials from the Super Bowl.
The Audi Green Police commercial was picked as Cars.com’s favorite. The WeeklyDriver.com gave the top commercial nod to 10 Years Strong, the commercial featuring Brett Favre. We found the Green Police video annoying.
The WeeklyDriver.com a difference of opinion with other commercials on Cars.com’s but we like the site’s succinct way of presenting its list. So, here it is:
Nevertheless, here’s the Cars.com list, with a synopsis of its top pick.
1. Audi: Green Police
The whole premise of overanxious greenies policing our bad environmental habits was exceptionally well done. Showing off the Audi A3 TDI at the end seemed like an afterthought, though, and it didn’t even list the car’s mileage. It’s 30/42 mpg city/highway in case you’re wondering. Why is it our top ad? It’s the only one we heard people pointing to as a standout for the entire night’s commercial lineup.
2. Hyundai: 10 Years Strong
3. Kia: Childhood Friends
4. VW: PunchDub
5. Dodge Charger: Man’s Last Stand
6. Hyundai: Painted Sonata
7. Bridgestone: Whale of a Tale
8. Hyundai: Body Pass
9. Bridgestone: Your Tires or Your Life
10. Honda Crosstour: Pixalated Squirrel
