Super Bowl commercials 2013: Taco Bell, Budweiser have top ads

Jamie Squire

Some of the top ads from Super Bowl Sunday were from Taco Bell and Budweiser.

Super Bowl XLVII is in the books, and the Baltimore Ravens are the champions. They're the top team in the NFL until we all get together for another season later this year. As such, companies will go back to the drawing boards for their Super Bowl commercials and prep a new slate of them for next year.

As far as the commercials go, this wasn't a terrible year. There were tons of commercials that fit the "not funny" and "trying to hard" bills, but there were also some very good ones.

One of the good ones was the Budweiser Clydesdale commercial. This has been a staple of the Super Bowl and, personally, I've never felt overly attached to them. That being said, this one definitely had me going near the end and it deserves its praise, to be sure.

Another highlight was the ad from Taco Bell. They took one of the most popular songs of last year, put it in Spanish, and had old people do dumb things while it was on. Of course, there's a little bit more to it than that, but here it is below.

Of course, Taco Bell itself doesn't really produce food that gives off an authentic Mexican vibe, but it's still an entertaining commercial. It seems like every year though, you'll get several commercials with babies and several with old people. America seems to think that's a winning formula. This commercial seems to get it right without being overbearing.
