The big game is over and now it's time to rewatch and rate the best car commercials.
So this year's Superbowl has come and gone. Plenty of pizza, wings and various types of beverages have been consumed in large quantities. Dietary guilt trips have also commenced. But now that it's all over, we can rate the best commercials that premiered during the big game. We've gathered what we think are the top five car-related Superbowl commercials from 2013. Overall, they weren't bad this year but there's no doubt that they've been better in the past. So without further ado, here's our list:
"To the farmer in all of us" is the tagline Ram uses here. And we're left inspired. With the late, great Paul Harvey chanting "So God Made A Farmer", Chrysler has struck gold again. Last year was Clint Eastwood. The year before that was Eminem but Harvey's iconic voice describing what it is to be an American farmer is also downright beautiful.
Whether you've been bullied or were the bully, you can likely relate to this young guy's predicament. Promoting the new 7-passenger Hyundai Santa Fe, the kid retaliates against the bullies who took his football by returning with a handpicked team of his own. Definitely no touch football here.
It's hard not to root for the underdog. Especially this kid, who ends up going to the Senior Prom alone. Poor dude. But his Dad hooks him up just as he's walking out the door. With the keys to the old man's Audi S6, our new hero discovers the self-confidence he never he knew he had. If only we could have driven an S6 to the prom. If only we could have one now.
Willem Dafoe is awesome. Plain and simple. And he also looks disturbingly good playing the devil in this commercial from Mercedes-Benz promoting its new and supposedly affordable CLA sedan. Along with Usher and Kate Upton, this semi-geek turned cool Mercedes owner lives the life he's always dreamed of - all due to the CLA. Certainly not a bad thing.
Volkswagen thinks we all hate Mondays. OK, that's a fair assumption but instead of feeling bad about the week ahead, VW wants us all to be happy - Bob Marley style. But can a VW Beetle really get rid of a case of the Mondays? Apparently it can and we can all "Get Happy" together (or at least try to).
