Top 10 Best Super Bowl Commercials of 2013 & Budweiser Ones We Can't Forget
Whether we want to admit it or not, sometimes we talk about Super Bowl commercials as much (or more) than the two teams playing the game. But why shouldn’t we?! Companies pay biiiiig bucks to advertise during the most-watched football game of the year, so it’s only right we acknowledge their frivolous spending with water cooler chatter about the best and worst commercials shown during the largest televised sporting event in the U.S.
In anticipation of the 2014 commercials, we've put together a list of the Top 10 best Super Bowl commercials from 2013 (in no particular order), as well as a pretty phenomenal list of the all-time most memorable Budweiser commercials to air during the Super Bowl. Because let’s face it, other than car commercials, Budweiser and its Clydesdales have pretty much dominated the Super Bowl commercials world.

Taco Bell 'Viva Young'
Samsung 'Next Big Thing' with Seth Rogan and Paul Rudd
