Lot of memories for me here

Ad Meter 50 for 50th: ranking the 50 best Super Bowl commercials ever

1. Coca-Cola: “Hey kid, catch!” (Super Bowl XIV, 1980)

Widely considered the first truly blockbuster Super Bowl commercial, this 1980 Coca-Cola spot stars Pittsburgh Steeler Mean Joe Greene.




Linked article embeds videos for the top 10 commercials and links to the other 40

One of my favorites

18. Budweiser: Replay (Super Bowl XXXVII, 2003)

In this 2003 commercial, an equine football game is slowed to a crawl as the referee, who’s played by an actual zebra, visits the replay booth.

Every ad appeals to some folks and not to others

For better or worse, the Apple ad is regarded as one of the first, if not the first, Super Bowl ads to have production values above the typical beer and car ads that ran on every football game, including Super Sunday, at the time.  It also was one of the first times people were talking about a commercial as much as the game (a Raiders 38 - Washington 9 blowout which was over at halftime) the next day and started the alleged practice of many viewers watching the Super Bowl for the commercials to which advertisers started to commit huge resources as much as the game itself.

Indeed, the ad's extraordinary production values and riveting story made it one of the most-talked about topics in America, and was rebroadcast on television news shows around the country.

Though other advertisers, like Masterlock, had already started targeted their most important marketing messages at the Super Bowl and its huge audience, "1984" is often credited with ushering in the current era of Super Bowl advertising, in which the ads are as important and popular as the game itself.
