Post-game Ad Roundup

The first topic in our weekly all-staff meeting this morning was, of course, Super Bowl ads!

So, let’s get right down to business – the following 10 ads came in at the tops of lists all across the Interweb. Be sure to comment with any of your favorites that weren’t included!

Mr. Clean’s “Cleaner of your Dreams”:
