Top 3 Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time

Updated on March 29, 2011

Which Super Bowl commercials were your favorites?

The Super Bowl is when all the big companies try to roll out their new commercials on a broad audience. These companies know that laughter sells, so they try to make the funniest commercials so people will be talking about it the next morning at the office water cooler. 

Not all these commercials were effective in the long run. I bet for a few of these you wouldn't even know the product being sold if I didn't tell you. With that said, here is my list of the top 3 funniest Super Bowl commercials of all time:

3. Sierra Mist Free - The Beard Combover

Here's a favorite from several years ago starring comedian Jim Gaffigan.

2. Snickers - Betty White Plays Football

This one was first aired last year and it started a series of Snickers commercials featuring famous celebrities, including Aretha Franklin. This is the commercial that put Betty White back in the limelight. Since then she's been on SNL and even earned a spot on a new sitcom. With the death of Blanche this past summer, Betty White (Rose) is the only remaining Golden Girl. I smell a conspiracy. From the looks of this commercial, she's perfectly capable of pulling off a hit.

1. Terry Tate - Office Linebacker

It's hard to believe how many years it's been since the Terry Tate commercial. Terry Tate started as a pilot for a potential short film in 2000. The first commercial aired during the Super Bowl in 2003. The concept is that Terry Tate, a football linebacker, is brought into an office setting to enforce basic office policies, like always having a cover sheet on TPS reports. People who don't comply are faced with a brutal takedown hit from Terry. Since my company brought in their own version of Terry productivity is up 85%, while office morale is down 99%.

By the way, this was a commercial for Reebok (admit it, I had to tell you that).

    Loved Terry Tate. Snickers commercial was funny the first couple of times, but they played it to death. I don't even remember the Sierra Mist one at all.
