Top 10 Super Bowl XLVII ads

rafaeli2f-2-webLast night’s Super Bowl ads have everyone buzzing as ratings roll in. The latest poll released today shows Anheuser-Busch’s heart-tugging spot “Brotherhood” featuring a Clydesdale horse and his former owner taking top spot.

According to USA Today and Ad Meter, “Brotherhood” won by a nose over Procter & Gamble’s Tide spot “Miracle Stain.”

According to AdBowl’s survey released last night, the top honors went to Dodge’s “Farmer” featuring their Ram Truck and the radio voice of the legendary Paul Harvey, with second place going to “Miracle Stain.”

Ad Meter ranks two user-generated submissions from Doritos in the top ten, while AdBowl ranks two low-budget cat commercials in the top ten, with no mention of the Dorito spots. AdBowl wrote in a press release, “Two everyday Internet kitten videos outperformed most of the big-budget commercials.“ Huh? I don’t even recall seeing the commercials they’re referencing.

Looking at AdBowl’s latest update on their website, it appears the cat commercials have gone to the dogs, as they are no longer listed in their top ten list.

One of the most talked about videos has got to go to Go Daddy’s spot featuring super model Bar Rafaeli kissing a nerd.

  1. Anheuser-Busch: “Brotherhood
  2. Tide: “Miracle Stain
