Fellas, haven't you heard? The Seattle Seahawks absolutely destroyed the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 2014! The score? 43 to 8. Tambakol!
For those who don't know much about the Super Bowl, it pits the two best teams of the NFL against each other in a winner-take-all match. It's regarded as the biggest sporting event in American football and is usually held either on the last Sunday of January or the first Sunday of February, hence the term Super Bowl Sunday.
It's certainly a big deal for American football fans--a spectacle that has become an annual sporting tradition in the U.S. It has become so big in fact that it has created another kind of tradition: major brands creating ads that piggyback on the Super Bowl's popularity.
However, unlike the commercials that are shown in-between rounds during a Manny Pacquiao match on free TV, many of these ads are impressive enough that you won't change channels. You could say fans watch the Super Bowl not only for the game but for the commercials that will air with it.
Each year has its own set of gems and for this year, here's our list of the Super Bowl ads that really made us flash a thumbs up sign.
