A Look at 2008 Super Bowl Commercials

by at . Comments

Some fans may remember Super Bowl XLII as an historic football game that saw one of the greatest upsets in professional sports history.

Most Inspired: Budweiser. When the Rocky music started to blare during this funny ad, which depicted a rejected Clydesdale being trained by a Dalmation, it took all our might not to pump out a few one-handed push-ups.

Funniest: The first E*Trade ad of the night that featured a talking baby was more gross than humorous. Vomit never sells. But the following commercial, focusing on the same child discussing the error of his clown-hiring ways, made us laugh harder than New Yorkers at Boston fans who thought they were special...
