"USA Today" has released a list of The Top 25 Super Bowl Ads of the Past 24 Years. They took the BEST commercial from each year . . . and then ranked them.
--Each year's top ad was determined by their "Ad Meter" system . . . a "real-time consumer ranking of Super Bowl commercials." There's one entry from each year, except for 2011 when there was a TIE for the best one.
--The #1 spot went to the McDonald's commercial from 1993, where MICHAEL JORDAN and LARRY BIRD played a crazy game of horse for a Big Mac. (-- CLICK HERE . Notice that it has over 5 MILLION views.)
--The runner-up also starred Michael. It was the Nike commercial from 1992, where Michael played basketball with Bugs Bunny. (-- CLICK HERE. It planted the seed for the "Space Jam" movie, which came out four years later.)
--Coming in 25th, the "worst of the best," was the 2007 Budweiser ad with the crabs that worship the Budweiser cooler. (--Here's CLICK HERE. See The rest of the Top 25, with a link to a video and brief write-up, is posted at AdMeter.USAToday.com.)
