Hands down, the best-produced Super Bowl commercial featured Eminem, great production values and the bass line to his hit "Lose Yourself." But I would be willing to bet that most of you couldn't tell me what car was being featured without looking it up on Google*.
Hyundai did a similar trick with trying to point out that car companies don't do a good job of pointing out facts about compact cars as they hyped their options. The Kia Optima was best shown as part of a sci-fi movie about how every culture loves the lines of it.
But the problem with most of these ads is that I didn't really remember much about them after the fact. The one that might have done the best job was the commercial for the Chevrolet Camaro that had two guys doing a voice-over for the crazy techniques, and ended it by making the driver a teacher.
We've included some of the advertisements to help jog your memory, but then you have to tell us: what was the most memorable ad of the Super Bowl.
*The answer is the Chrysler 200, which is a replacement for the Sebring. You know, the car that your parents rent when they fly out to see you.
