USA Today conducted their annual Super Bowl Ad Meter to determine the most popular commercials shown during last night’s championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers and the results are official.
The big winner was a 60-second Anheuser-Busch ad spot where a magnificent Budweiser Clydesdale horse and his trainer are reunited. It played in the third quarter and received the highest rating of the evening.
Edged out by a nose was Proctor & Gambles Tide commercial. The 60-second ‘Miracle Stain’ ad aired during the final quarter and featured a guy who got pizza sauce on his shirt — the red stain turned out to be a perfect likeness of Joe Montana.
Third place went to a feel good ad by the makers of Dodge RAM trucks that featured Paul Harvey’s moving tribute extolling the virtues of farmers. It also ran during the fourth quarter and was one of the longest commercials of the night, a whopping 120-seconds.
