We all know by now, that Super Bowl is way more than just a great play. Super Bowl is a huge marketing showdown with 30 second ad campaigns running $4 million. And 2014 was no different.
Although we’re going to focus on the commercials, let’s have a look at the results first.
NFL Super Bowl XLVIII
Yesterday, 6:30 PM Eastern Time
MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
Seattle Seahawks win against Denver Broncos – 43:8 Final Score.
Seattle won the big game and so did some of the advertisers. Millions of people worldwide gathered around TV sets to watch the game and some crazy big-budget Super Bowl ad campaigns. These commercials have become more elaborate and significant than ever.
Many of this year’s buzz worthy commercials were uploaded to YouTube and shared via social media channels well ahead of Sunday’s annual game.
Here are 5 of 2014’s most viewed (as of today) and well-received Super Bowl ad campaigns, based on YouTube views and social media feedback.
Five Buzz Worthy Super Bowl Ad Campaigns

A funny commercial with a disproportionate canine hybrid. Checkout this scary dog-monster and Audi’s way to show the world how frightening the consequences of bringing compromise into the world are.

#2. Budweiser “Puppy Love”
This commercial is something for animal and farmer fans. It’s all about #BestBuds featuring a cute puppy and a horse.
#3. Bud Light “Ian Up for Whatever”

Great media attention for the yoghurt brand due — featuring 90’s sitcom Full House stars Johm Stamos, Dave Coulier and Bob Saget.
