Great Super Bowl Ads

Peter Hartlaub on writes about what he considers the "The 10 best Super Bowl ads of all time". Unfortunately Peter seems unaware of a new technology all the kids are talking about these days, this "YouTube" thingie, so while entertaining, his column misses badly by not providing links to all of the commercials in question. Luckily, Jeff's Home For Teaching The Aged About Technology is here to remedy the lapse. Below the fold, I present Hartlaub's list of all time great Super Bowl ads, complete with videos, in order from #1 to #10. Personally I'd have put the Reebok "Office Linebacker" ad at number two, but Peter forgot to check with me. The nerve! Anyway, hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane.

Apple Computers "Big Brother" (1984)

Coca Cola "Mean" Joe Green (1979)

e*trade Dancing Monkey (2000)

Terry Tate - Reebok Office Linebacker (2003) "When I Grow Up" (1999)

McDonald's "The Showdown" (1993)

EDS "Cat Herders" (2000)

Tabasco "Exploding Mosquito" (1998)

Xerox (1977)
YouTube doesn't have this one, but you can get to it here.
