Watch the 10 best commercials of 2011

Entertainment

I’m sure you don’t get enough commercial-coverage in your life – so read on to check out the best 10 commercials of the year. Some are funny, some are touching, and the one embedded below is all of the above and more.

We all know that ads on TV are expensive, but sometimes they can be legitimately entertaining. Adweek just rolled out their Top 10 Commercials of 2011 (even though it’s barely December – does that mean there could be a recount?).

For those of us that live in an urban area, and are extremely plugged in, CBS news estimates that we are seeing upwards of 5000 ads/day (that includes commercials, billboards, online ads, radio spots and product placement).

Embedded below is my favorite out of all of them; it’s the Volkswagen spot from the Super Bowl, entitled: The Force. It’s a minute long, but man oh man, kids in Darth Vader costumes are hilarious.

Enjoy:

Click through on the article above if you want to see them all. I’d never seen the Snickers one with the sharks (featuring Isiah Whitlock Jr. aka: Clay Davis from The Wire), but it rules. Also, and I know this makes me sound like my mother, but the Google spot makes my eyes feel like I’ve been cutting onions. Excuse me, I’ve got to go…

Any favorite commercials from this year that Adweek missed? Let us know!
