Super Bowl 50 is in the books but one thing is for sure, it had some memorable and funny commercials throughout the big game.

Not only was Super Bowl 50 one of the most highly anticipated sporting events of the year but, it marked the last football game of the 2015-16 season. If your were rooting for the Denver Broncos, congratulations, and if you were banking on the Panthers to take it all, I am sorry!

But, what if you didn’t care about the actual game? There are definitely plenty of other reasons to join in the Super Bowl festivities.

The food, the half-time performance and the commercials make up for everything else if you don’t care who wins. I actually had a group of friends come over just to eat and watch commercials; I know, I should probably get some better football-oriented friends.

All they talked about was how funny some of these ads were. From car commercials to food commercials, and even ones with furry friends, the Super Bowl is a time for America to see some of the best, worst and most expensive ads of the year.

Let’s take a look at the top five best Super Bowl commercials.

5. Drake T-Mobile

Celebrities always add great value to Super Bowl commercials, usually in the form of comic relief. This holds true with the T-Mobile commercial featuring rapper Drake.

In an effort to offer valuable information on their plans and data services, T-Mobile re-created Drake’s “Hotline Bling” song. After weeks of singing “You used to call me on my cell phone”, the song re-appears to make a cameo during the Super Bowl.

With a little added humor about changing Drake’s lyrics to incorporate T-Mobile’s services, Drake proceeded to entertain us with his ridiculous dance moves. With Drake having to change his entire song to fit the T-Mobile needs, viewers were offered a bit of humor mixed with song and dance.

4. Doritos Dogs

For the last 10 years, Doritos has sponsored the “Crash the Super Bowl” commercial contest. Year after year individuals create Doritos ads in hopes of seeing their creations appear in the Super Bowl.

This year’s $1 million winner goes to Jacob Chase and his “No Dogs Allowed” commercial. Although this commercial was like no other, Doritos is known to offer a few ha ha’s when incorporating dogs in their commercials.

If you don’t remember last year’s classic, it involved a man bribing a dog with a bag of Doritos in order to keep quiet about the missing cat. After last year’s hysterics, it was obvious Doritos would strike again.

This year’s commercial involved a group of dogs trying to go into a store to buy Doritos however, no dogs are allowed in the super market. After numerous attempts, the dogs disguised themselves as people and make it into the store to buy Doritos. Not only was it hysterical but, the commercial used all rescue dogs in the making of the ad.

3. Heinz Dogs

Every year we can almost assume what Super Bowl commercials are going to be aired. America loves beer, cars, and Doritos however this year’s line-up included a few nontraditional companies.

It means that Heinz wanted in on all the action. After all, how do you tailgate without ketchup? But, this year, Heinz outdid themselves making it to the No. 3 spot.

As per USA Today, this ad was voted the favorite across 14 states. If you didn’t see the commercial as it aired, shame on you; it was hysterical.

Hundreds of hot dog dogs dressed like hot dogs stampeded as they ran toward people dressed as condiments; ketchup and mustard. It was one of the funniest Heinz commercials in a very long time.

Next: 2. This commercial offers a controversial debate

2. Doritos Baby

Many of us laughed out loud as we watched the “Doritos Baby” commercial but, it wouldn’t be a Super Bowl ad without some controversy right? Doritos got slammed by the National Abortion Rights Action League.

The commercial starts with a woman getting an ultrasound while her husband annoyingly crunches on Doritos. After the unborn baby reaches for a Dorito, the mother quickly throws the bag across the room.

This is where the controversy starts. The unborn child quickly tries to makes an escape for the Doritos resulting in an early delivery. NARAL went nuts and socially shared their disgust.

Are they serious? Clearly this is not possible and special interest groups have gotten a little carried away. The majority of fans that enjoyed the commercial saw no tie to any kind of reference to abortion. Again, it was a harmless commercial on why everyone loves Doritos.

1. Hyundai’s ‘First Date’

Let’s hear it for our best Super Bowl commercial. Not only was Hyundai’s concept brilliant but, adding a hysterical Kevin Hart in the commercial added a ton of comic relief.

Although this commercial aired right before kickoff, it was voted best Super Bowl commercial ad according to USA Today’s annual poll of favorite Super Bowl ads. Hyundai really outdid themselves this year.

This commercial entails Hart lending his daughter’s date his Hyundai Genesis. What he didn’t know was this vehicle is supplied with a Blue Link Car Finder feature.

It’s a feature allowed Hart to track his daughter’s date, and keep dibs on their whereabouts. Hyundai not only used humor to draw in an audience but, they were able to positively highlight the features and services Hyundai provides.
