Aside from the superb game itself, some of the viewers of the Super Bowl match are critics and business minded people who are waiting for the notable companies who were able to secure the expensive advertisement spot that was said to be approximately $3.5-4 million.

Who would not want to avail the spot anyway? It will be viewed not only by the entire United States but by the millions even billions of Super Bowl fans all over the world.

However, having the spot isn’t enough, your ad company should be that clever to pull off a worthy commercial that could totally promote your product thus fulfilling its purpose.

We’ve enlisted 5 of the best Super Bowl commercials this year that had obviously captured our attention and had displayed the ample amount of worthiness.

5. Happy Grad – Chevrolet

The entire commercial is so funny that you would be left thinking what will happen if the truth would be revealed to the overwhelmed newly grad. A chevy for a gift is something to be overwhelmed indeed.

4. Century 21 Agents

The ad clearly showed how worth it to hire a century 21 agent. They were able to utilize the right people in the industry.

3. A Dream Car. For Real Life – Kia Optima

They showed that dreams can be true and Kia Optima is one of those dreams that has been made possible. A job well done to gather all the big personalities in one commercial.

2. GO RUN Mr. Quiggly! – Skechers

The aim is clear. There is no way a French Bulldog could defeat all those greyhounds but with Skechers Go Run, it can be the fastest among them. The cameo appearance of Mark Cuban also adds the beauty of the ad.

1. The Dog Strikes Back – Volkswagen

A lot of stories portrayed within the 76 second ad. Discipline, determination, pride and inspiration have been well displayed for a better and newer look.

What a great game indeed! For the second time around, the New York Giants proved to the Patriots that they truly deserve the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Everyone’s all eyes to the last few minutes of the game as anything could possibly happen. The score difference just can’t get any longer. No one can ever predict how things will turn out. The only thing left is to watch and wait.

Super Bowl XLVI is truly one of its kind with record breaking stints. This is the game when Tom Brady had the phenomenal 14 consecutive yard pass surpassing Kurt Warner’s record. Although the game didn’t favor the Pats, still anyone can call it as a Brady-game. He also tied with Terry Bradshaw for 2nd all time with 9 Super Bowl TDs.

The first quarter was somewhat a ‘Giants-dominated’ spot when it ended with a scoreless Patriots but towards the last 8 seconds of the first half, Brady amazingly had a 96-yard touchdown ending it with a single point lead.

The halftime show was also amazing with the 53-year old Madonna who could proudly say she still rocks more than any young performers of this generation.

Then 3rd quarter came, the 96-yard touchdown of Brady was then followed by another 79-yard TD that drove the crowd wilder than ever as the score rose to 17-9 with 11-20 remaining on the 3rd Q. The Giants this time tighten their defense and settled for a 38-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes thus changing the scores to 17-12 with 21:43 left on the same quarter. Another 33-yard field goal for Tynes happened now at 17-15.

At 3:46 to go on the last quarter, Eli Manning passed a 38-yard sideline cruise missile to Mario Manningham and lead switch places, 21-17 this time. Too early to celebrate yet as the anything can happen, knowing that it’s Tom Brady who managed to deliver things in seconds.

Indeed Brady tried and had a long pass to a twisting Wes Welker who unfortunately wasn’t able to catch it and that ends their game.

For the second time around, Eli Manning defeated Tom Brady in as far as Tom Coughlin defeated Bill Belichik.

As what they always say, expect the unexpected in this very tough game. Who would have thought that at the remaining 8 seconds of the second quarter, a record-breaking and historic 96-yard touchdown drive would be made by no other than Tom Brady thus ending the quarter with a point lead 10-9.

He passed John Elway and Joe Montana into 2nd place all time in Super Bowl yards with 1,148 (Kurt Warner 1st w/ 1,156). He made the crowd crazy for this superb skill.

With this kind of play that Brady is showing, the odds and predictions of all NFL critics and fans now become vague as ever as this game is definitely unpredictable.

Now everyone prepares to witness the halftime show with it’s awesome concert stage.

Meanwhile, for NBCSports.com’s Twitter battle, Giants now up to 55% against 45% of the Patriots. No wonder anytime from now these percentage will meet at 50-50.

The Giants is indeed very serious in this game. They ended the first quarter with 9 points without letting the Patriots get a single score.

When the game started, both are equally tight on each other but at 8:52, safety was called after the intentional ground call as Brady was quite pressured and threw the ball to no one while he’s on the end zone thus allowing the number to fill in the score boards 2-0 for the Giants.

Then came the rushing Manning who gets to connect with Victor Cruz for a two-yard touchdown catch adding 7 points more.

On the other hand, for those waiting for the ads, first up is Budweiser’s Bud Light Platinum beer. Another one is for GE and the greatness of having Samsung Galaxy SII.

In few minutes the half time show will be shown and everyone’s equally excited for it as well.

Stay tuned!

The New England Patriots and New York Giants face off on Sunday night at Super Bowl XLVI with excitement, tension and emotions at an all-time high. The Patriots are riding on a magical and emotional run while the Giants are looking to repeat their Super Bowl XLII championship title against the Patriots.

The hype on the head-to-head battle between elite quarterbacks Tom Brady and Eli Manning has been building up and will be facing the true test at Super Bowl. By the end of four quarters, which team will have the right to raise the Lombardi Trophy?

The game seems to be a battle on offense. Defense may be underrated in this game but it will play a major role in foiling the opposing quarterback from orchestrating the offense.

The Giants defense has worked against Brady. They won the Super Bowl XLII by giving Brady a tough time making his passes. Now the Giants have exposed some weakness on defense that Brady and company may just exploit come game time.

In the regular season, the Giants struggled against teams with athletic tight ends. Vernon Davis of the San Francisco 49ers, Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints and Jermichael Finley of the Green Bay Packers proved that the Giants tight end defense has a hole.

 

Rob Gronkowski could have made things difficult for the Giants if he could play at 100%. Aaron Hernandez can pose serious challenges too.

The key for the Patriots to fully exploit this weakness is to protect Brady from pass rushers to make that perfect pass.

The Giants on the other hand has Eli Manning who plays well under pressure. He can break the defense psychologically with his cool demeanor. If the Patriots continue to play the ball instead of the man, then Manning will have an easier time taking advantage of the pass attack.

The betting odds and historical statistics will all mean nothing at kickoff. Both teams are equipped with elite quarterbacks, offensive and defensive manpower. The team that plays with more consistency on both ends of the field will win the NFL championship game.

The Patriots are likely to get the job done this time.
