The Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials Starring Food: 2013 Edition

Categories: Last Night, Lists


Last year, I listed out the ten best food-based Super Bowl ads for you guys. And this year, while everybody else was eating at least a bajillion chicken wings, lamenting over all those poor chickens or tweeting about the "Blackout Bowl," I was diligently watching all the commercials once again. Let's see which of the food groups spent their 3.8-million-per-30-seconds wisely. My money's on empty calories and male curiosity.

10. Beck's Sapphire

Honestly, this one slipping onto the top of the top ten is actually more of an award for being the weirdest. I don't think anyone really understands why an animated betta fish would serenade a bottle of fancy Beck's with his rendition of Blackstreet's "No Diggity." But on behalf of all our collectively confused, very furrowed eyebrows, I sincerely hope that fish gets a cameo in the next Nemo flick.

9. Bud Light "Journey"

In a slightly creepy move, Bud Light dusted off the great Stevie Wonder and used his ass to sell beer-flavored water. And then they did it twice. Budweiser has a lot of money.

8. M&Ms "Love Ballad"

"It hurts, but I kinda like it!" exclaims the red M&M as Glee sexy lesbian actress Naya Rivera nibbles on the top of his head. This spot is cute, she's hot and everybody loves a good Meatloaf joke. Meatloaf is also a food, which means 5 extra points. End of story.

7. Doritos "Goat 4 Sale"

Well, Doritos was back again (and I'm not talking about the Taco Bell Cool Ranch taco). I'm talking about slightly quirky, kinda funny ads about the chip we all really wish we could resist. This time there were cross-dressing Dads, adorable dogs and my personal favorite, a really pissed off goat.

6. The Rock Got Milk

Even in the year 2013, the American Dairy Farmers still want us to drink our milk. And now they're using superhero-esque The Rock to tell us so. Nothing can ever beat out Aaron Burr, but for this year, Dwayne Johnson will have to do.

I loved the number one. That wast favorite, although I tend not to eat foods with commercials.

The Clydesdale commercial had me all weepy and stuff.  The cats were crying, too.


The only thing that was more of a beating than the commercials was that stupid halftime show......I checked out immediately during anything that wasn't game, so I could pee, drink and eat.

Any Real food in any of them? Or all of them death food commercials?

@kkffYeahhhh. Sorry about that. All the videos should be fixed now. Guess I just love that baby horse so much!
