Super Bowl 2012: Some Of The Best Commercials

Once again it was a great Super Bowl on Sunday night, but once again there were likely an audience of people watching just so they could see the commercials. There were plenty of decent ones, here's a few of the best of the crop from 2012.

In the category for most bizarre commercial for sure is this effort from Pepsi, which features Sir King Elton John, Flavor Flav and possibly some heavy drug use by somebody behind it.

In the 'musicals' category, Hyundai released this advertisement featuring people at work singing the Rocky Theme Song. You know darn well that if you were in a bar and they had the sound on, everyone in there was singing along to this one when they figured out what was going on. There's not that many songs that can do that, except maybe the Rocky Theme, Hey Jude and the William Tell Overture. (Note, I have yet to find a commercial of Hyundai employees singing the William Tell Overture, but have sent them a very nice letter in the hopes that we'll see that for 2013.)

Any advertisement that features John Stamos getting put through trials of pain automatically makes top lists like this. Is it a Yogurt commercial? Who cares? And more importantly, why did John Stamos not receive more punishment for being a Yogurt tease when he deserves it simply for being John Stamos?
