Without hyperbole, it can be said that viral Super Bowl commercials are the only reason to watch America’s biggest game of the year. Unless you’re from Carolina or Colorado you probably don’t care who wins the giant silver sports trophy in 2016, but you almost certainly do care about which commercials win the award for best Super Bowl ads. Every year there are a few ads that stand out from the rest of the pack, but in 2016 the competition is intensely fierce among the buzzy Super Bowl commercials so it’s up to you to determine which Super Bowl 50 (or L, if you're Roman) commercials truly are the buzziest, and which commercials were better left on the marketing room floor.
During the Super Bowl, companies go all out to make sure you remember their commercial long after the big game. So much so that most people don’t even remember what was being sold, they just remember the commercial. Case in point, the Budweiser frogs had nothing to do with beer, but everyone remembers that commercial. And we can’t verify this but sales of frogs probably increased 1,000% after that commercial aired. Which Super Bowl commercials 2016 will take the cake? And which ads will fail to even be invited to the party (presumably where all the cake is)? You tell after you watch all of the buzziest Super Bowl ads from 2016.Vote up your favorite 2016 Super Bowl commercials, then leave a comment about what you think Liam Neeson was selling in that LG commercial.
Hyundai Genesis "First Date" Featuring Kevin Hart

Snickers "Marilyn" Featuring Willem DaFoe
If you didn't get enough of Willem Defoe in Spider-Man or The Grand Budapest Hotel, then Snickers is proud to present the super crazy actor in full Marilyn Monroe drag performing her most famous scene. Thanks, Snickers!
Heinz "Wiener Stampede"
What more do you need to know about this commercial other than the fact that there are about 20 sweet little dachshunds wearing hot dog suits, running across a field to kiss people wearing ketchup outfits? Now that it's written down, this commercial sounds like a dream someone had after taking Ambien on the Fourth of July.
