Top 10 2009 Super Bowl Commercials

by Ryan Guina

If you can’t buy Super Bowl tickets, then the next best thing is watching the game on the big screen from the comfort of your home.My wife and I just finished watching the Super Bowl. I didn’t have a vested interest in the outcome of the game, but I was rooting for the Cardinals – mostly because Kurt Warner is such an easy guy to root for. Regardless of whether or not your team won, you have to admit it was fun to watch – especially that fourth quarter!

Of course, the commercials are also a lot of fun to watch and my wife and I compiled our list of favorites. Without further ado, here are our favorite Super Bowl commercials from 2009.

Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials from 2009

Pepsi – Every Generation Refreshes the Young

This one was probably the favorite for my wife and I. A lot can be said with pictures and this commercial was well done!

Bud Light Drinkability – “The skiing commercial”

This commercial is classic. I imagine we’ll see a lot more of this commercial for the rest of the winter.

Doritos Crystal Ball

This was another of my wife’s favorites. Classic high school humor.

Cheetos – “the pigeon commercial”

You know you’ve wanted to do something like this before!

Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head

Mr Potato Head is one smart potato! Watch how he handles Mrs. Potato Head. ๐Ÿ™‚

Budweiser – “Fetch”

Talk about overachieving!

Pepsi Max – “I’m Good.”

Ouch! These look painful! My wife wasn’t too keen on this one, but I thought it was worthy of a mention.

Best Movie Preview – GI Joe

GI Joe was one of my favorite toys as a kid, and this movie looks like it will be a good one.

Audi w/ Jason Statham of The Transporter fame

To be honest, I’m not too sure what this was about, but the special effects were great! This was definitely the best car chase scene of the night.

Best commercial featuring an over the hill rock band:

I admit I’m a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins. But what have they done lately? I mean, besides the car commercial?

Other notable commercials

There were a couple other notable commercials – the Conan Bud Light commercial, another Doritos commercial, the NFL Network with Darren McFadden, and the Denny’s commercial featuring a free Grand Slam breakfast.

Kristy, I agree – the commercials this year don’t seem to be as dramatic as in previous years. Maybe it’s a reflection of the economy?

Still, I think there were a couple good ones. ๐Ÿ™‚


2 Kristy @ Master Your Card

I usually only watch the super bowl for the commercials because my team hasn’t been to the super bowl in years. I missed it this year as I’ve been playing catch up with work stuff. But, I have to say, if those were the top 10 commercials this year, they’re pretty lame. I didn’t laugh at one of them. But, I did like the G.I. Joe trailer. I’m also a big fan and I thought they made an interesting cast choice with Channing Tatum as Duke. We’ll see how it turns out.

Thanks for posting these!

I really liked the Conan O’brien commercial. I was looking forward to the one second ad for high life, but I didn’t catch it. Did they actually show it?


4 Jeff Rose


I have to agree with Kristy, but I’m so thankful you did this. Apparently, between getting seconds and chatting away I missed the best ones. Awesome round up!

Steve: I dont remember seeing a second high life commercial. The Conan O’brien commercial was good, but I couldn’t find a good copy of it when I published this – it was very pixelated and of poor quality.

Jeff: I agree with Kristy as well. This year the game was better than the commercials – and that isn’t always the case! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dorito’s for sure!

By far, the best commerical was the one second “HIGH LIFE” ad.

But I’m biased against bud products. I don’t understand “drinkability.” Something that is “easy drinking” would have little flavor, which makes it easier to drink, like water. Might as well say it has good “chugability.”

I’d rather have a beer with a good flavor.

But, I always enjoy the bud light commercials.


8 Steward

I thought the best commercial by far was the Career Builder one. It was funny and had great visuals.


9 Craig

By far my favorite was the Dorito’s commercial in the beginning with the snow globe. Thought that was great. Commercials are so different now as a whole because of the costs, and because of the internet. Most are teasers now for more unrated versions online.


10 Frugal CPA

I guess I respond best to high school humor ’cause I think that Doritos commercial is hilarious. Thanks for sharing these!


11 Ryan

Frugal CPA: Nothing wrong with a little high school humor. Look how well Will Farrel and Ben Stiller movies do at the box office! ๐Ÿ˜‰


12 Empty Cabin Media

Note in the Audi commercial that he wrecked every car BUT the Audi ๐Ÿ˜‰

That new Audi is slick looking…


13 Ryan

Yeah, I noticed. He ditched them all until he found the perfect ride. And yes, it’s sweet! ๐Ÿ™‚


14 Spartan Saving

This year I felt more in touch with the movie teasers. Those were exciting, c’mon GI JOE, Transformers 2, you can’t go wrong with those.
Only problem was that up here in the cold North we didn’t get the SB on Canadian channels so no commercials live on TV :(.


15 Jason from Money Theory

My favorite was the Mr. Potato Head commercial – that was just too darn funny!


16 Ryan

Jason: I liked that one a lot as well. I might have laughed a little too hard though because my wife gave me “the look.” ๐Ÿ˜‰
