Super Bowl, the most celebrated American sport, is not only much awaited for its final play-off but for the million-dollar ad campaigns that serve as fillers in between touchdowns.

And Super Bowl 46 (alright, XLVI for you few fanatics out there) is no exception.

So Kipp took a look at the ads aired during the Super Bowl 2012 and sifted through them all, so you won’t have to. It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it.

While watching over 50 Super Bowl ads—mostly of cars—may have reduced us to cliché overdose, we are now in a better position to present to you the top 10 of noteworthy Super Bowl Ads.

Super Bowl, amounts to big business in the States: reports suggest the time slot this year cost an average of $3.5 million and reached an estimated 117 million viewers—that is a lot of pressure to get it right. We shan’t give it away-have a look at these ads and let Kipp know what you think.

Chevy Sonic “Stunt Anthem”

Kipp can remember the days when we struggled to grasp the meaning of personification as a young school Kipper. We feel certain, just watching this Chevy ad would have helped put us straight. Chevy does an excellent job personifying the new Sonic as the adventure-loving thrill seeking companion you’ve always wanted by your side.

M&M’S “Just My Shell” Super Bowl Commercial

Introducing a new MnM character, Kipp absolutely loves this topical and quirky MnM ad-that uses LMFAO’s ‘I am sexy and I know it’ to get a few laughs.


CareerBuilder 2012 Big Game Commercial – Business Travel

A whimsical and rather funny approach for a recruitment company. Reminds us a tad of Dunstan Checks in, though.

Toyota Camry 2012 It’s Reinvented

Is it necessarily a good thing that Toyota claims to ‘reinvent’ a whole bunch of impossible feats before they tell you they have reinvented the Camry? Kipp’s no Ad Man, but we have a hunch the answer to that question is probably no-yet points for a creative Wes Anderson-esque narrative.

Coke 2012 Commercial: “Superstition”

Got to trust Coca Cola to feature non-humans loving their fizzy product. But unlike the awful-connotations-insects-love-Coca-Cola ad, this ad of a superstitious Polar Bear strikes all the right chords for Kipp. S

“Transactions” – 2012 Acura NSX

Trust Jerry Seinfeld to get a few laughs with his classic ‘Jerry’ quips and moans. Kipp especially loves the reference to Jerry Seinfeld’s nemesis ‘Newman’ at the end of the ad.

David Beckham Bodywear for H&M Super Bowl Ad

Smoulder, smoulder, pout and pose-here’s David Beckham promoting his tight-y whities- by wearing one flexing and rotating all at once.

Camry Effect: “Connections” :60 Big Game Commercial

Going for sentimentality but ending up a tad bit too long and tiring, Kipp gives this Camry add brownie points for intentions.

Hulu Plus Super Bowl Teaser Ad #mushymush

Described as a terribly expensive hash tag, though we are fans of Will Arnett and Arrested Development, Kipp this Hulu ad was a bit of a hit and miss-mainly owing to the insider jokes which could alienate or amuse one.

“Think Fast”: Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Restarting a man’s heart vis-a-vise a powerful car engine is a morbid idea-but was the direction Hyundai chose to take this Superbowl. Kipp wasn’t too charmed by the reference to the corpse-but points for the notion.

Chevy Silverado “2012″

Chevy’s post apolyptic doomsday humor failed to bring a smile to Kipp’s face. All we ended up wondering why the company chose to spend the final deciding moments of the ad drawing the viewer’s attention to the Twinkies?

    Boring, boring, boring. British TV ads are much more inventive and humorous.
