We ask the same question every year: Which was more entertaining, the game or the ads? In a year in which we desperately needed at least one of those co-stars to carry the show, neither one seemed up to the task.
But just like the game, there were a few highlights. Humor and celebrities dominated. Rookies showed up in force, with HALF of the ad line-up being first-time Super Bowl advertisers. And nostalgia thrived, with throwback songs and throwback stars popping up throughout the night.
When the final votes were counted, Doritos was the winner with a spot featuring a flat Matthew McConaughey who gets his shape back thanks to some 3D snacks.
Until next year!
