The annual rankings of the Super Bowl ads are out, and while the competition for the top spot was close, the battle for worst commercial crowned a clear “winner.”
The top-rated commercial this year was Anheuser-Busch’s spot featuring a reunion between a Clydesdale horse and his former owner, “Brotherhood,” according to USA Today’s Ad Meter. The ad won "by a nose" over the late-game spot from Procter & Gamble’s Tide, “Miracle Stain,” featuring a ketchup stain in the shape of NFL great Joe Montana, the story says.
The other top five ads were Chrysler’s Ram ad “Farmers”; Doritos’ "Fashionista Dad" spot and another commercial from Chrysler, with its Jeep ad “Whole Again” taking fifth place, the story says.
The competition for worst ad saw an easy winner: GoDaddy.com’s heavily buzzed spot featuring supermodel Bar Refaeli making out with a computer nerd, according to the rankings.
