We covered Honda’s Ferris Bueller commercial a couple days back. Here are some more incredible Super Bowl car commercials. It’s crazy to me how many millions manufacturers pay for the creation and placement of these spots. The real question is – will funny Super Bowl car commercials affect brand perception enough to cause a shift in buying trends?
Here are the best Super Bowl car commercials for 2012
All twelve listed from LEAST ENTERTAINING to MOST ENTERTAINING.
Least Entertaining Super Bowl Car Commercial
#12. Cadillac ATS and Green Hell
Okay, so this one isn’t actually supposed to be funny. But I don’t get why anyone would bother with a serious Super Bowl commercial – no one’s going to remember it! Plus they directly named their competitors, which I always find a bit unclassy.
Super Bowl Car Commercials – From Least to Most Entertaining

#10. Hyundai’s “Veloster Versus Cheetah”
Well…if you like Cheetahs…
#9. Suzuki’s “Sled”
Meh. More animals.

#7. Kia’s Teaser
Apparently Kia is now selling…beautiful women? What I don’t even…okay, boys might like it.

Smart. And inspiring.

Gotta love the special effects.

Quirky and original. Love.
