all the super bowl commercials, ranked

you’ll laugh, you’ll cry

Last night saw the usual mix of blockbuster movie previews, corny beer ads, over-produced car commercials, and celebrity cameos. The common consensus was that despite some star power from Nationwide (Mindy Kaling and Matt Damon nailed it) and some bawdy humor from Fiat, the best ad of the night belonged to Budweiser, who used the oldest trick on Madison Ave.—an insanely cute puppy—to win you over. 

Hulu, which is currently hosting most of the ads on its site through Toyota AdZone, seemed to agree: It ranked Budweiser's "Lost Dog" ad as the best one of the night, edging out Snickers' clever
