The 5 Best Super Bowl XLVII Ads

Super Bowl's best commercials ranged from funny to touching

By Nate Wooley, InvestorPlace Writer

For a bit there, it didn’t seem like Super Bowl XLVII was going to live up to its building. But thanks to a surprisingly energizing halftime show, a power outage and one heck of a second-half rally bid by the 49ers (that at least kept the Ravens’ win from being a blowout), viewers who stuck around were amply rewarded.

And, of course, the Super Bowl’s 30-second side shows — the commercials! — were worth tuning in to see, too. Here are five of the best:

Taco Bell — Viva Mas

Yum Brands‘ (NYSE:YUM) Taco Bell featured a ad of hard-partying seniors causing trouble and finishing up eating a late-night meal at the restaurant.

Go Daddy — Bar Rafaeli’s Big Kiss

GoDaddy’s controversial ad featured Bar Refaeli and a geeky-looking guy in a kiss.

Ram Trucks — Farmer

Chrysler delivered the most touching ad of the night with radio legend Paul Harvey’s “So God Made a Farmer” speech and Dodge Ram trucks.

Best Buy — Asking Amy

Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) featured Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler making a salesman uncomfortable.

Budweiser — The Clydesdales: Brotherhood

Anheuser-Busch (NYSE:BUD) went with the “aww” factor with a commercial about a baby clydesdale growing up.
