Top 10 funniest Super Bowl commercials?

Stumbled upon this list.

A couple caught my particular attention.


The compiler of this list seemed to think that this commercial might have aired in 1999. Not so. If you look close you'll see the copyright date is 2000.

I've always felt that this commercial never got sufficient credit (or blame) for bursting the dot.com bubble -- which, as the linked Wikipedia article will tell you, occurred in March 2000, only about 40 days after this commercial aired.

Also a standout on the linked list is this parody of the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away. If you remember the movie at all, this one will make you laugh out loud.


Although, yes, this is rather mean, too.

What's the funniest Super Bowl commercial you can remember?

And... do you think any commercial tomorrow evening will make someone's future funniest list?

Not sports, Bee, but commerce -- even though the commercials air during a sporting event.
