Vote: What Was the Best Super Bowl Commercial?

While south suburban residents cheered on local products in the Super Bowl, major companies showed off their products in the commercials. Tell us who had the most memorable ad.

From post-apocalyptic Chevy owners to Elton John as a Pepsi-dispensing king, last night's Super Bowl was full of memorable ads.

We at Patch weren't that excited by the ads, though. We've seen a lot better. We recap some of the more memorable ones below, but if you liked something better (from past or present) tell us in the comments).

Here are a few of our favorites. Pick which one topped your list. Watch all the commercials here.

Slow mo Doritos slingshot baby

No other way to say it: A grandma used an infant as a human slingshot to steal Doritos from a snotty child.

Chevy after the blast

In this Silverado ad, Chevy owners mourn those who did not make it because they had the wrong car.

Matthew Broderick's career off

Matthew Broderick, the star of such films as Ferris Bueller's Day Off and... that other one, re-creates as much of his most famous role as he can without violating the movie's copyright.

LED headlights ruin vampire barbecue

Vampires, once terrible monsters of our nightmares, take a break from tween romance lit to hawk some cars.

Jerry Seinfeld brings back the Soup Nazi

In this Acura ad, Jerry tries to bribe his way to getting the first of the new model, but is stymied at the last moment by a man who need no more cars.

"Halftime in America", Epic. I've a special place in my heart, too, for the Motor City, as a former Detroiter - and with family in that area.

"Halftime in America." It reminded me of the famous Coke Hilltop commercial from the '70s.

"Halftime in America". Clint said it all.

Kia commercial. Loved this one because my son was in it. He was the man on the left carving the huge sub sandwich.

Clint Eastwood's commercial for Chrysler. Some saw it as a political commercial some did not. The message was right except for the claim that Detroit was back. Detroit is not back. This city is in terrible trouble with very little hope of recovery to its glory days. Now it is time for GM and Chrysler to pay back the TARP funds back to the taxpayer. If GM made $10m in profit turn it over to the taxpayers and not the unions or executivies. Same goes for Chrysler. We bailed your butts out now man-up and pay it back. The truth is we should have let them go into Chapter 11 like Continental Airlines have been for 10 years. That is the capitalistic system and it works.
