Check Out All the Car Ads from Super Bowl Sunday [videos]
Ah, the Monday after the Super Bowl. A lot of you around the country are shaking a few cobwebs off via coffee and ibuprofen, while folks in Denver and Seattle might require something stronger to wake up. Regardless of which team you were pulling for, everyone had opinions about the ads that aired last night. Here are the 15 car-related TV spots: Jaguar
My favorite ad from last night. It has everything. British villains, tea in a luxury copter with the door flung open, and of course, the 2014 Jaguar F-Type Coupe.

Just like the dog show judges in this ad, looking at this dog was unsettling. Also, what does this have to do with a car?
So we have one of the more iconic figures in the last 15 years of film, Morpheus, and he’s schilling for Kia? Great. I feel like they could have done so much more with this ad, but it lacks any real bite.
What this ad is saying is that this kid should have met his untimely demise over, and over again, but never had to endure the repercussions. Now this kid with no survival skills or common sense is on the open road, and his car protects him when he does something stupid? This is how bad drivers are made.

You could probably take the first 30 seconds of this and re-package it as a Levis ad. You want to sell Jeeps? Just show Jeeps doing Jeep things. 60 seconds of off-road clips would have been great.

The fastest way to my heart (other than BBQ pulled pork) is Muppets. No matter what you do with muppets, it will be great. That said, don’t you DARE use animal to say the lame “Let’s go places,” tag line. Animal doesn’t know any better.
This was simple and funny. Also, I can’t get enough of Fred Armisen staring, wide-eyed at the camera.
Kinda cute. Kinda lame. But it all comes together at the end with the carefully shot “rainbow-out-the-butt,” routine. It had our friends watching the game with us laughing out loud– but only at the end.
Chevy previewed this ad to us at the Silverado HD test drive, and journalists were laughing out loud. It is a pretty funny ad, and involves cows mating. What’s not to love?!

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
If you have not seen Jerry’s new web based show, you are missing out. He pairs different celebs with excellent classic cars, and the results are terrific. This version features Jerry, George, Newman and an AMC Pacer. It’s the perfect combination!
Ugh. Dylan. Anyone who tells you they like Dylan’s music is either liar, or a lying hipster. He’s a great songwriter, but his voice is like nails on a blackboard. Jack white probably loves him. With all that, he delivers a GREAT line at the end. “We…will build your car.” It just seems to carry weight.

Now we’re getting somewhere. These days, super bowl ads have to be epic, but also have a sense of humor an consciousness of the moment. This ad (ads?) has all of that, plus Rob Riggle flying an F-16.
I couldn’t tell if I was watching “Beasts of the Southern Wild” or the Super Bowl, but then it appeared. The Maserati Ghibli made an impression. Then my friend asked why they would name a car after that a Ben Affleck movie. That friend did not get any of my famous buffalo chicken dip.

Need For Speed
We have no idea if the new NFS movie will be good or not, but you can bet that the chase scenes are going to be legit. Also, we got a little more about the modified Mustang GT hero car. Apparently it will have an advanced head-up display system, and fly more times than the General Lee.
Bud Light is so damned reliable for some of the best Super Bowl ads, this was great on many levels. Arnold was terrific, and it has a stretch hummer in it so technically, this had something to do with cars.
